RUSHING OFFENSE
: The Eagles' offensive line did a much better job of opening holes for Jerome Harrison than it did of protecting Kevin Kolb. The little-used Harrison, who came into the game with just 19 carries this season, rushed for 99 yards on 21 attempts

Grade: B-plus

PASS OFFENSE: Kevin Kolb was sacked 6 times and spent much of the game running for his life behind his porous protection. He completed just 18 of 36 passes, threw 3 interceptions and averaged only 4.5 yards per attempt.

Grade: D

NFL Scoreboard

RUN DEFENSE: After giving up 161 rushing yards last week to the Vikings, the Eagles were gashed for 159 Sunday. Defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley continued his fall from first-round grace. He played the entire game and was in on just 2 tackles, even though the Cowboys ran the ball 34 times.

Grade: D

PASS DEFENSE: Stephen McGee isn't Tony Romo or Jon Kitna, but the Eagles still did a good job of shutting him down, holding McGee to 11 completions in 27 attempts. But 2 of those completions came late in the fourth quarter to tight end Jason Witten -- a 33-yarder on second-and-10 and a 4-yard game-winning TD. If you're counting, that's 11 TD catches by opposing tight ends this season.

Grade: B

SPECIAL TEAMS: David Akers hit both of his field goal attempts. He finished the regular-season converting 26 of his last 28 attempts. Return men Chad Hall and Gerard Lawson both did a pretty good job. Coverage units shut down Cowboys return man Bryan McCann. Sav Rocca put 3 of his 7 punts inside the 20.

Grade: A-minus

OVERALL: Andy Reid rested most of his regulars, which is a plus. Rusty Kevin Kolb got some much-needed work in case something happens to Mike Vick in the playoffs, which also is a plus. His 3 interceptions and the 6 times he was sacked, not a plus.

Grade: B-minus
