Eagles-Cowboys report card

RUSHING OFFENSE: While LeSean McCoy and Leonard Weaver both had some success on the ground, the Eagles couldn’t get a yard when they needed it in the fourth quarter, getting stopped for no gain on third-and-one and fourth-and-one. Grade: C

PASSING OFFENSE: The accuracy Donovan McNabb showed last week against the Giants disappeared against the Cowboys. He threw just his second and third interceptions of the season. Grade: D

RUN DEFENSE: The Eagles did a good job shutting down the Cowboys’ ground game. They held them to 3.3 yards per carry in the first three quarters. Grade: A-minus

PASS DEFENSE: The Eagles held Tony Romo without a touchdown pass for 3 quarters, but then Miles Austin beat Sheldon Brown on a double move for the game-winning TD in the fourth quarter. Grade: C

SPECIAL TEAMS: David Akers made all three of his field goal attempts, including a 52-yarder in the fourth quarter. The Eagles did a good job of neutralizing Cowboys punt returner Patrick Crayton. Grade: A-minus

OVERALL: DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin were held to just 2 receptions. Donovan McNabb had his first regular-season multiple-interception performance since the Baltimore debacle last November. Grade: C-minus
