Cowboys Game of Inches

Game of Inches: Dallas Cowboys had 2-point conversion and a touchdown overturned last night in 28-23 loss to the Eagles

NFL football has long been considered a “game of inches”. That term was on full display last night during the Philadelphia Eagles 28-23 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. 

The Eagles improved to 8-1 on the season while the Cowboys fell to 5-3. For anyone watching the game, it was an intense battle between the two NFC East rivals and easily took 20-30 years off my life. 

A Game of Inches 

Dallas was down 28-17 to the Eagles and had a 4th and goal at the Eagles 1-yard line with roughly 10 minutes left in the game. 

Dak Prescott threw a pass to Luke Schoonmaker that was initially called a touchdown but upon review, it was evident that he was stopped just short of the goal line because the football had not broken the pane of the end zone before Schoonmaker’s knee hit the ground.

The Eagles took over on downs, but the Cowboys quickly forced a 3-and-out to get the ball back. A few minutes later, while the city of Philadelphia was entering cardiac arrest, Prescott tossed a touchdown to Jalen Tolbert to pull the cowboys within six points. 

Dallas then went for a 2-point conversion with a Dak Prescott keeper that was again, initially ruled good before getting overturned because he stepped out of bounds before the football crossed the pane of the end zone.

Never change, Dak Prescott. Never change.

Of course, there was a million different things that went wrong for the Eagles last night and honestly, they should have probably lost this game. However, as Jalen Hurts always reminds us, the only thing that matters is winning football games.

The Philadelphia Eagles are now 8-1 heading into a much needed Bye Week. They will then travel to Kansas City to play the Chiefs on Monday Night Football.
