Philly's Win Over Dallas By The Numbers

The Eagles victory over Dallas was historic in many respects as you'll find out in our latest "By The Numbers" article.

As the Eagles start preparing for Seattle this week, let's take one more look back at the Eagles' Turkey Day stuffing of the Cowboys "By the Numbers".

30: It's a magic number this season for the Eagles. They've scored 30 or more points eight times this season and have won all eight of those games.

1,000: A milestone number for both LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin who passed 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards respectively in the Eagles' win.

47: With his 159 yard rushing performance on Thanksgiving Day, LeSean McCoy is now 47 yards shy of Wilbert Montgomery's franchise rushing record.

6: With a 58 yard reception in the second quarter, Jeremy Maclin now has a league high six receptions of 50 or more yards this season.

16: With a rushing touchdown in the first quarter, Mark Sanchez became the 16th different Eagle to score a touchdown this season.

93.1: That's the field goal percentage for rookie kicker Cody Parkey which is good for the fifth best percentage in the NFL. He went 4 for 4 in Dallas Thursday.

42: Tony Romo was sacked four times Thursday bringing the Eagles' sack total to 42 on the season, good for second most in the NFL.

20: In the final two minutes of the first half, Brandon Boykin forced a fumble that was recovered by Nate Allen. That goes down as the 20th fumble forced by the Eagles, a league high. They've recovered 12 fumbles which is also a league high.

73: The league's leading rusher, Dallas' DeMarco Murray, was held to a season low 73 rushing yards. It's the second time this season Murray was held under 100 yards on the ground.

6-0: Dating all the way back to a pair of games against Pittsburgh in 1939 and 1940, the Eagles have played six times on Thanksgiving Day. They've won every Turkey Day game they've ever played.
