Cowboys fall to Eagles 30-27 Sunday night

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - DeSean Jackson had 210 yards receiving,

including a 91-yard, go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth

quarter, sending the Philadelphia Eagles to a 30-27 victory over

the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.

Philadelphia (9-4) ended a three-game losing skid to its NFC

East rival and moved a half-game ahead of the New York Giants in

the division race. The Eagles will take a streak of five wins in

six games to New York on Sunday for a showdown with the Giants.

Dallas (4-9) fell behind in the opening minutes, yet kept it

close and even led 20-14. But Philadelphia was relentless, dropping

the Cowboys to 3-2 under interim coach Jason Garrett. They are

guaranteed their first losing season since 2004.

Jackson's performance helped mask an otherwise rocky outing by

Michael Vick - two interceptions, matching his season total, and

trouble converting on third downs. Dallas sacked him twice and

blasted him with hard hits all night, including one that drew a

penalty for a helmet-to-helmet hit.
