If the Cowboys hold on to their 30-10 lead with 12:36 to play, Ezekiel Elliott's win streak against Philadelphia will move to five games. The Cowboys have not lost to the Eagles with Elliott in the lineup. He sat out the 2016 finale and missed a game in 2017 because of a suspension.

Leighton Vander Esch has been ruled out of the game with a neck injury. He is standing on the sideline in street clothes as the second half begins.

Where were these Cowboys during their three-game losing streak? The Cowboys dominated Philadelphia in the first half for a 27-7 lead and the Eagles only scoring drive came as a result of two Dallas penalties. Ezekiel Elliott had 65 yards and a touchdown against the second-ranked run defense and the offense has put up 266 yards at halftime. The defense gave up 95 yards, sacked Carson Wentz three times and forced two fumbles.

Leighton Vander Esch appeared to suffer a neck injury on a third-down pass to Dallas Goedert. It appeared as Goedert was being tackled that Vander Esch took a thigh to the head area. He moved his arms and legs before sitting up and walking off the field. He remains inside the medical tent.

Jason Garrett pulls a Doug Pederson, electing to go for it on fourth-and-1 from the Dallas 49. The end result? A 1-yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott to Blake Jarwin. The Cowboys' continue to show a willingness to be aggressive, but Garrett has been a coach willing to take fourth-down chances over the years. It's just not as celebrated as other coaches across the league.

The Cowboys lead 14-7 after one quarter against Philadelphia but there has to be a wonder if it should have been better. At the very least, they got the fast start they craved. It's the first time the Cowboys have scored 14 first-quarter points since Week 16 last year vs. Tampa Bay and the first time the offense has scored two first-quarter TDs since Oct. 22, 2017 against San Francisco.

The Cowboys have only themselves to blame for the Eagles' touchdown. A roughing the passer penalty on Jaylon Smith negated a three and out and two plays later Xavier Woods was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver. That's the 16th and 17th first downs opponents have had via Cowboys' penalties this season.

Fast start, part two. The Cowboys entered Sunday with 20 first-quarter points in their first six games. They have scored 14 points on their first two possessions with Ezekiel Elliott bulling his way in from a yard out with 8:56 left to play. Both drives started inside Philadelphia territory.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

DeMarcus Lawrence put himself out there with his comments Friday. He just had the first sack of his career vs. Philadelphia, knocking the ball free from Carson Wentz too. The Eagles were one of three teams in which he has played multiple games against that he had not recorded the sack. He has played two games each against the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars without recording a sack.

There's the fast start the Cowboys have wanted all season with Tavon Austin's 20-yard touchdown run on a third-down option pitch. The Cowboys had scored just one field goal on their opening possession in their seven games. Their last opening possession touchdown came in Week 16 last year against Tampa Bay. The Eagles, conversely, have allowed points on the first drive in six of seven games this season.

With Jaylon Smith's forced fumble, the Cowboys offense will start a possession inside the opponent's territory for the first time this season. They were the only team not to have a possession that started on the plus side of the field entering this week.

Cowboys inactives: WR Devin Smith, CB Anthony Brown, LB Luke Gifford, OL Adam Redmond, OL Brandon Knight, DT Justin Hamilton, DE Dorance Armstrong.

Ezekiel Elliott grabbing perhaps his last moment of rest before tonight's game against Philadelphia.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Dak Prescott has a 15-5 record against NFC East foes in his career and has a 4-2 record against the Eagles. He has seven touchdown passes but his six interceptions are the most against a division foe. In two division wins this season, he has seven touchdown passes and one interception.

According to multiple sources, the Cowboys will have offensive tackles Tyron Smith and La'el Collins, wide receivers Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb and cornerback Byron Jones Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. All five are listed as questionable for the game, but they practiced on Friday on a limited basis and barring any last-minute setback will play.

Cowboys DE Lawrence to Pederson: 'We ready'

Doug Pederson's "we're gonna win that football game" comment on Monday has not been much of a topic of discussion inside the Cowboys' locker room as they get ready to play the Eagles, but defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence will not forget it.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

DeMarcus Lawrence has a message for Doug Pederson, who said, “we're gonna win that football game,” on WIP on Monday. “Tell him to come on. We ready,” Lawrence said. “Can he play the game? So he might want to shut his ass up and stay on the sideline. He can't play the game for them. The Eagles got to play them and he's supposed to sit on the sideline and do whatever he wants to do. But he can't play the game for them so we'll see.”
