PASSING OFFENSE: B -- Drew Bledsoe wasn't sharp early and he had one stupid interception that nearly lost the game. But he rallied from a poor start with a crucial fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Terry Glenn.
RUSHING OFFENSE: F-- The Cowboys rushed for just 58 yards on 24 carries.
Marion Barber had 13 for 46 and Julius Jones had eight carries for 16 yards. That won't get the job done over the long haul.
PASS DEFENSE: B -- As well as Donovan McNabb played early, the Cowboys
didn't give up any big plays down the field. They got to McNabb as the game
wore on with two sacks in the fourth quarter and Roy Williams' interception
return for a touchdown won the game.
RUSH DEFENSE: D -- The Cowboys gave up more rushing yards than they have
all season as the Eagles tallied 181 yards on 36 carries. Brian Westbrook
led the way with 86 yards on 16 carries.
SPECIAL TEAMS: D -- The Cowboys gave up a 24-yard punt return and a
44-yard kickoff return. The Eagles also blocked a punt by Matt McBriar.
COACHING: B -- On an emotional day for coach Bill Parcells, the Cowboys
survived the Eagles and moved into a first-place tie in the NFC East with
the Giants. They also may have finally ended the Eagles' reign in the
division and conference.
OTHER NOTES: CB Anthony Henry was held out of Monday's game because of his torn
groin. Aaron Glenn started in his place at right cornerback, although he
moved to the left side in the nickel with Jacques Reeves going in at right
cornerback and left cornerback Terence Newman moving inside.
--DE Greg Ellis had a fourth quarter sack to pad his team-leading sack
total of six. Ellis has recorded at least a half-sack in all but two games
--WR Keyshawn Johnson started a game on the sideline for the first time
since he was a rookie in 1996 in which he was active. The Cowboys opened the
game in a three-tight end formation. Johnson, however, led the Cowboys in
receptions with five for 56 yards.
