Cry Eagles Cry! The Dallas Cowboys are 8-5 and in the driver seat for the NFC East crown after being 3-5. Let's relive the game through the eyes of the almighty All-22
Every single receiver here is running a "stick-&-stop™️" I call them that because, well, you see. The fact this was clearly man coverage (inside leverage close to LOS) there should never be a play call where all 4 receivers are running identical routes. Scotty doesn't know
Don't see trap often in the run game. A great call here by Scotty gets a pentration heavy DL getting too deep, creating a natural run lane while Zack Martin clears the second level. Collins does a good job leveraging his hips inside and that choker LB makes the tackle after 13
Good call against cover 3 here on 3rd down by Scotty. Beasley runs the slot DB to the sideline on the flat route while outside receiver runs off the deep third corner. This allows Jarwin to cross behind the linebacker who doesn't get any width. If he does, you see Jarwin sit MOF
Gallup threatens Jones inside and takes large gather to a nice drop of the hips to drive back to LOS. Line does a good job protecting Dak, allowing him to quickly get from left to right and releasing as soon as he made it to his read of Jones. Good ball.
XSF does a really good job scraping off Martin here to get to the DB and spring Zeke. Counter action gets linebackers crashing A gaps. Nice track by Hill to get to Zeke before too much damage is done.
Michael Bennett and his cardboard shoulder pads are good at football. Everything went well here. Dak makes what looked to be the correct read, but Bennett stops on a dime and makes the play.
4 shows great presence here and some slick footwork to slide right and step up. He does a great job keeping his head up and knowing where Zeke will be and they pick up the 3rd down
Doesn't get blocked much better than this. Eagles defense all overpursue and the OL is able to wash them out in this zone scheme. 4's legs make Bennett hesitate enough to where he's unable to get flat enough to pursue 21.
Dak's first INT. This is why All-22 is important. Thought for a full 24 hours this was a bad read. Not necessarily. Cover 3. Dak need to either throw this with more pace or deeper into the end zone. Douglas flattens out a bit but never flips to carry underneath.
Dak put too much air under the throw and it allows Douglas to drive and track. I maintain that THIS was the worse of the two INT's. Physical errors > mental errors. This was a mental error.
Another clap for Scotty. Speed option on third down to the weak side. Good call here on 3rd and 1. 12 personnel, moving Noah Brown tight and running speed away is a very good tendency killer. Although I'm still very unhappy with Scotty, he's gone against the grain recently.
THE TRAPPENING 2: Another trap call here gets Rod Smith (big/athletic) downhill quickly. Fletcher Cox overpenetrates, and doesn't even need blocked. Collins gets to the second level and Rod Smith hits us with the Madden 07 spin to get by the second level.
The offense could be taken to a completely different level if 4 was more comfortable over the middle. He steps too far midline and actually throws this across his body. Ball probably should have been thrown with more pace, but it can't be overthrown.
Gallup has improved working short areas every week. Struggled early with the physicality of defenses at LOS, and he won that way in college. Here, "everything is a fade, until it isn't."

When Gallup becomes more efficient with his hands, he is going to be dangerous as a #2 guy
I wrote @TheCowboysWire specifically how the Boys should use PA to beat this bad LBs just over their heads. This is the first time during the game I've noticed it. Third quarter. Bad LBs that don't get depth and an elite RB. Should run PA on every damn play.
Most fumbles for Dak this year have been due to poor security. This was not one of those instances. He does a great job attempting to tuck this and just take the sack, but as Bennett tries to wrap him up his arm perfectly gets the ball. This one is not on Dak.
I know Jones has had a tough time with things, but this is great by Cooper. Attack square, jab outside and rip through so DB can't get hands on without a grab. His ability after the catch has been just as important as his work as a route runner. He's a complete receiver.
THIS IS A DIME!! #DakRiders unite and retweet to show the eliteness of the throw. Haters please ignore. This is just trust. Not caring. Jones in obvious cover 3 alignment. Cooper doesn't even really change his pace. Dak just trusted he'd win, and he did. Threw it to the spot. TD
Cowboys finally read my pregame article and put Noah Brown in motion and got him to the flat quickly off the PA look. Schultz uncovers between the LB and safety and Dak gets his head turned and releases immediately
This is the play that @ktfuntweets brought up earlier @FakeJ00712. I hadn't gotten this far yet. Beasley does a really good job here selling the vertical release while still affecting the DB's path. Defense in Cover 1 (man w/ single safety) and each OL wins 1v1 battle.
For most of the game, the OL handled Philly's DL in the zone run game. Reeatedly allowed Zeke a clean read, usually resulting in a lane backside to ride through. OL washed defenders strongside consistently. Williams played well for the most part in Zack Martin's absence
