The Cowboys and Eagles entered play on Sunday tied for first in the NFC East with 3-3 records, but Dallas pulled away in the second half and beat Philadelphia 17-3 to move into first all by themselves.
A week after a four-touchdown performance against the Buccaneers, Eagles QB Nick Foles was just 11-of-29 for 80 yards and no touchdowns before leaving in the fourth quarter with a head injury. With starter Michael Vick injured on the sidelines, Foles was replaced by rookie Matt Barkley but that did not improve their chances on Sunday. Barkley threw three interceptions on 20 pass attempts.
Cowboys QB Tony Romo wasn't a whole lot better, throwing two picks himself, but with the defense doing its job to shut down the Eagles, he did enough. Philadelphia has lost a franchise-record nine straight games at home.
