Recap

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM @ DALLAS COWBOYS 

The Cowboys clinched the NFC East before kickoff, but they still took the opportunity to lay a humiliating beat down on Washington in a 56-14 blowout. Dak Prescott totaled 330 yards and 4 TDs as Dallas climbed out to a 42-7 lead by halftime. Dallas finished the day a perfect 6-6 in the red zone. 

Washington’s offense was near helpless against the Cowboys defense that has emerged as one of the league’s best, especially at generating turnovers. Trevon Diggs tied a franchise record with his 11th interception and DeMarcus Lawrence had his first career pick-six against Taylor Heinicke. Heinicke struggled to a 7/22 showing with 121 yards before being pulled. The Washington QB was also sacked four times on the day.

NEW YORK GIANTS @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES 

The Eagles once again shook off a dreadful start and ran away with a 34-10 victory in the second half. The game was tied 3-3 at halftime before Philadelphia rattled off 31 unanswered points capped off by an Alex Singleton pick-six off of Mike Glennon. Glennon and rookie Jake Fromm combined for 108 yards on 23/44 passing with 1 TD and 2 interceptions.

Jalen Hurts struggled early, throwing an interception that was overturned and fumbling on a strip-sack that Philadelphia recovered. However, Hurts rallied in the second half to finish the day 17/29 with 199 yards and 2 TDs. He had some help from his receivers, including a highlight reel 46-yard reception from DeVonta Smith on an extremely underthrown pass. Smith also caught one of Hurts’ touchdowns while the other was caught by offensive lineman Lane Johnson for the first catch of his career.
