The Cowboys and Eagles got into a small pregame scuffle that ended on the sideline before players were ushered back into the tunnel.

Elliott made highlight reels and kept the Dallas' NFC East title hopes alive when he extended a play in the first half.

The organization also thought about firing him before the season even started, per the report.

The win Sunday showed what the Cowboys can do when things are clicking.

With Sunday night's loss, they're down to 4-5 on the season - looking up at 6-3 Washington.

Dallas' defensive line deserves credit for shutting down opposing running backs, but the stars leading the way for the run defense are the team's duo of young linebackers, Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch.

But it was Elliott's go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that helped the Cowboys finally hurdle the Super Bowl champs.

Wilson threw three touchdown passes, rushed for 92 yards and almost rallied the Seahawks (4-5) all the way back after his fumble. The rookie first-round pick had two big plays in the first quarter of the game, now of which was a rushing touchdown.

"This league is created to be.500", Jones said.

When asked if that was that the best leap of his career, Elliott responded, "I'm going to leave that up to you guys".

In his first half of work as a Cowboy against the Titans, Cooper had three catches for 30 yards and a touchdown. "I don't want to talk about last year, but it is something we did really well last year", Wentz said.

Jones was positive it was Elliott's finest. And a Cowboys team in Dallas that just beat them in Philly. I know how important this game was to everyone in the city. Dak Prescott had a tremendous amount of success when releasing the ball in two and a half seconds, at one point completing 14 of 18 passes, according to NBC sports broadcaster Cris Collinsworth. His momentum-building interception of Carson Wentz in the first quarter lit a spark and his game-saving grab of Corey Clements' foot on 3rd and 2 saved the day, forcing a futile fourth-down play that the Eagles could not convert. Additionally, the presence of having Cooper as a true number one receiver has enabled Dallas' other athletic receivers to have more favorable matchups and get open.

Tate had said he looked forward to playing for the Eagles due to their passionate fan base, and he wasn't disappointed.

"The ball got spread around to a lot of people and when we do that, that's when we're at our best", Beasley said. "Maybe. But at the same time I think the more information you can gather on any player before you commit those kinds of dollars is essential".
