HIGHLIGHTS OF EAGLES 23-9 WIN: IT WON’T TAKE LONG, PROMISE!

By Jerry Wein

It was 3rd-and-6 from the Eagles’ 21, and linebacker T.J. Edwards blew through the middle on a blitz and slammed into Ben DiNucci’s midsection, separating the rookie from the ball.

At one point, Vinny Curry seemed to have it, lying on the ground, but the ball was wriggling around, Dallas guard Connor Williams swatting at it. It squirted free and away from the pile, and Rodney McLeod saw it and picked it up.

Several Cowboys seemed to think the whistle had blown, but it had not. McLeod ran 53 yards for his first touchdown since 2015, when he played for the Rams. With 5 minutes, 18 seconds remaining and a 12-point lead against an offense that did not score a touchdown all evening, that really was it.
