The Eagles came out looking flat tonight against the Dallas Cowboys and the end result confirmed it. There was a huge struggle to get anything going on offense, and when the Eagles seemed to see like they might get something going, they struggled yet again.
The defense failed to make a big stand at the end of the game and with no timeouts there was nothing that could be done to stop the clock. Dallas didn’t play their strongest game, but they played well enough to pick up a win.
Watching this game was almost as painful as watching the struggle in Oakland, but this is worse. The Eagles had a chance to pick up a game on everyone in the NFC East and be standing alone at the top of the division. However, they didn’t bring their top stuff and ended up with a loss.
This is a very painful loss but the Birds are going to have to have a short memory and put this game behind them as they still have a tough road ahead of them. They’re far from being eliminated from the playoffs but this loss is going to sting.
Look back for more analysis tomorrow.
