The Dallas Cowboys needed a win to move on from the melt down in Jacksonville.

Here are 10 biggest plays from the Dallas Cowboys’ 40-34 win over the Philadelphia Eagles  at AT&T Stadium…

1. The Dallas Cowboys were trailing 34-27 with only 8:02 left in the fourth quarter. On the first play, Haason Reddick beats Tyron Smith for a sack, and causing a fumble. Tyler Biadasz recovers the fumble.

2. Same drive in the fourth quarter. After another sack. Dallas Cowboys were staring at third and 30. T. Y. Hilton makes an outstanding catch after Prescott unleashed a ridiculous throw on the left sideline. Dallas ties the game on this drive.

3. In the second quarter. Dallas were facing a fourth-and-8. Mike McCarthy goes for it. Hilton drew an illegal contact penalty on Darius Slay. This extended the drive. CeeDee Lamb would cap off the drive with a 36 yard touchdown catch.

“I’m still fast. You gotta respect me.” – T. Y. Hilton said after the victory.

4. Dak Prescott pulled off a prestige that would make the Great Danton proud. On third-and-5 from their own 48-yard line, Prescott avoided being sack, and hit Michael Gallup for an 8-yard gain. Elliot would finish the drive with a 1-yard score.

5. On the last drive of the game, Nahshon Wright tackle on WR Zach Pascal. Keeping him in bound. Costing the Eagles 16 seconds.

“We talk about being one of the best defenses in the league. And the past 2 weeks, we haven’t shown it at all. You are what you put on tape. At this point, we haven’t gotten the job done.” – Jayron Kearse.

6. After the Eagles jumped out to a 10-7 lead. The first of Jayron Kearse’s two takeaways was on Minshew in the second quarter.

7. Kearse’s second takeaway was a fumble recovery in the third quarter with the Eagles leading 27-20.

8. In the fourth quarter, with 4:19 left to play. Game tied up at 34-34. DaRon Bland gets his fourth interception of the month and fifth of the season. He just took the ball away from WR Quez Watkins on third-and-short. Big time play.

Bland is a STUD. He will battle you all game long and not give an inch. Dallas has found themselves a gem of a player.

9. Carlos Watkins has been the most disruptive, most consistent DT since being elevated from the practice squad. He puts on his hard hat and just does his job. In the fourth quarter, Watkins caused the fumble by Mile Sanders.

10. Linebacker Anthony Barr gets the fumble recovery after dropping an easy interception earlier in the game.
