Gallup hit the Michael Jordan “shrug” after beating the defense for the 1-yard score.

Prescott was 24-of-39 with 271 passing yards and two touchdown passes. It’s the sixth straight game he’s had at least two touchdown passes. Last week he had three against the Seattle Seahawks and four against the Washington Commanders.

Jake Ferguson led Dallas with five catches for 72 yards. Lamb had six catches for 71 yards and Gallup finished with six catches for 71 yards.

The Eagles only had six points on the board at halftime but the tide was nearly turning at the start of the third quarter when Jalen Carter returned a fumble for a touchdown. But that was the only touchdown they could muster.
