Dallas Cowboys Cruise to 34-14 Victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in NFC Playoffs - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | January 9, 2010 | Brian

Posted on 01/09/2010 10:05:59 PM PST by Federalist Patriot

Here are video highlights of the Dallas Cowboys 34-14 victory tonight over the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Round of the NFC Playoffs. The Cowboys dominated the game by scoring 27 points in the 2nd Quarter for a 27-7 lead at halftime. They then coasted to victory in the 2nd Half.

For Dallas, it was their first playoff victory since 1996, and was the first playoff win ever for both Coach Wade Phillips, and Quarterback Tony Romo.

The victory was the third time this season Dallas defeated the Eagles, and the second week in a row. The Cowboys beat the Eagles last Sunday 24-0 to win the NFC East Crown.

Dallas heads to Minnesota now to face the Vikings next Sunday in the Divisional Round of the Playoffs. . . . (VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS)

It’s tough for an NFL team to defeat another team three times in one season. Next up for the Cowboys, a visit to the Metrodome to play the Vikings.

I wonder when ESPN is going to put Andy Reid on the hot seat?

That score is a deception, it wasn’t really THAT close. How sad is that?

The Cowboys dominated the Eagles on both sides of the ball and special teams.

Yep and next week the Vikings are going to be shocked, assuming the Cowboys bring the same Offense and Defense and special teams.

Good question. Has Reid had any contact with Craig James’ daughter, Adam?

This is new territory for me. I loathe the Boys. But I loathed Philly even more so I cheered for the Pokes. Now, I have to cheer for them again since I can't stand Prima Donna Favre.

You heard it now... Cowboys will beat the Vikings in a close game.

McNabb was wearing his grandma’s glasses at the post-game.

Amusing. From the parts I saw, Romo was quite fortunate that the Eagle defense could not catch the ball tonight. He threw to wide open Eagles three times that I saw and each dropped the ball.

Haha - I’m easing myself back into being a Cowboy fan - lost all interest in them during the years Switzer was coaching -

Actually, statistically speaking, the “difficult to beat an NFL team 3-times” thing is a bit of a myth.

The Cowboys-Eagles game this evening was the 20th such meeting (teams that met twice in the regular season met again in the playoffs). Of those 20 meetings, the team that won the first two games is 13-7 in the third.

It was an impressive win, nonetheless. HOW ‘BOUT THEM COWBOYS!?!?!

Yeah, the Cowboys should have had 14 more points easy.

I think Spencer and Ware are going to give Favre reasons to think that retirement is a good idea.

"But at least the Eagles had a black QB."

Yep, and for the umpteenth time, Rush was proven correct. McNabb is a mediocre qb at best. At least we won't have to hear the announcers going on and on about what a wonderful fella that dog-killer, Vick, is.

I think they gave up on QBlk #2 way too early. The Cowboys had everything QBlk #1 could do figured out before the first quarter was over. Letting Vick spend the rest of the game scrambling to pass and running the ball would have been at least entertaining.

I agree, the score could have been alot worse.....that was total domination.
I don't think I've ever seen a more consistent & dominant performance in the trenches than what I've seen from the Cowboys the past 4 weeks.
They're gonna be tough to beat.

Same thing here. Never could I ever imagined I would be rooting for the Cowboys. It's Bizzarro world.
Funny thing I saw here in the Philly media today: “ McNabb didn't throw up last night, but many Eagles fans did after watching his performance.”

Yeah - everyone hates the Cowboys except for in Dallas but they hate Michael Vick more; you can’t get much lower than dog fighting.

Amazing that you only tuned in the three times Romo made what you call a bad pass, and you just happened to miss the 25 excellent ones. But then that fits the tired and now utterly disproven armchair QB myth that Romo sucks and can't win big games against good teams.

You really should set your DVR so as to catch the entire football game.

I did only watch a few minutes of it. Apparently, that was the wrong time to watch.
