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.
