Jay Ajayi looked right at home busting open a 71-yard run, the longest of his National Football League career in the third quarter. The Eagles (9-1) rocked the Cowboys 37-9 behind 218 rushing yards and four Dak Prescott turnovers. He had a long run of 22 yards.

Dallas found the scoreboard first on a 48-yard field goal that was set up by a 61-yard kickoff return by Ryan Switzer.

Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby is active after missing eight games because of a dislocated ankle sustained in the opener. Jake Elliott, however, missed the 34-yard field goal keeping the score 7-6.

Cowboys running back Alfred Morris rushed for 91 yards on 17 carries. He was ruled out for the rest of the game at halftime.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz completed 14 of 27 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns.
