ARLINGTON (KXAN) — The Philadelphia Eagles laid claim to the title best team in the NFC East and there’s nothing the Cowboys could do about it Sunday night at AT&T Stadium. The Eagles (9-1) rocked the Cowboys 37-9 behind 218 rushing yards and four Dak Prescott turnovers.

The Cowboys (5-5) held a 9-7 halftime lead behind three Mike Nugent field goals, but completely unraveled in the third quarter. In the last two games, Dallas has been outscored in the second half 47-0.

Sunday night’s divisional tilt was billed as a showdown between premier quarterbacks. After a slow start, Eagles QB Carson Wentz settled in to lead Philadelphia throwing for 168 yards and two touchdowns. Prescott finished with 145 passing yards and three interceptions.
