Cowboys Vs. Eagles Final Score: Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy Roll Over Dallas

The Dallas Cowboys were expected to have some troubles with the Philadelphia Eagles considering the Andy Reid led team is typically excellent coming off of bye weeks. Not many guessed the final score would be 34-7, however, as Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy led the Dream Team to a drubbing of America's Team.

The Eagles were led by Michael Vick to a 24-0 lead at halftime before slowing down a bit in the second half. That didn't hurt the statistics put up by Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy, however. Vick passed for 279 yards and two touchdowns through the air and added 50 more yards on the ground while McCoy had a career day with 185 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

The Cowboys struggled, to say the least, as Tony Romo completed just 15 passes for 178 yards while running back DeMarco Murray was limited by the score -- though he made the most of his time on the field by rushing for 74 yards on just eight carries. Laurent Robinson was a bright spot, however, as he hauled in five catches for 103 yards and two highlight-worthy plays.

The Cowboys will look to get back on track next weekend as they host the Seattle Seahawks while the Eagles play their second prime-time game in as many weeks, this a Monday Night Football affair against the Chicago Bears.

Cowboys Vs. Eagles Halftime Score: Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy Pacing Philadelphia Offense

Andy Reid is well-known for being excellent coming off of a bye week and the Philadelphia Eagles were hyped up to be a bit of a Dream Team following the free agent class they brought in this fall. It's unlikely anyone thought Michael Vick and the Eagles would be able to make the Dallas Cowboys this bad, however, as the Eagles scored on all four of their first half possessions to open up a 24-0 lead at halftime.

Vick has completed 13 of his 17 passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns while adding 45 additional yards on the ground to help the Eagles offense early. Running back LeSean McCoy has also been solid, carrying the ball 13 times for 95 yards and a touchdown of his own.

The Cowboys certainly have their work cut out as DeMarco Murray has been the offense's only real bright spot early as he's rushed the football six times for 74 yards as he continues to fill in as the team's starting running back. Tony Romo has been relatively ineffective, being sacked a few times and throwing an interception while failing to get the Cowboys within scoring distance.

The second half better be drastically different for the Cowboys or this game is going to get even more out of control than it already is.
