The Eagles lost to the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field, 6-0, in their regular season finale. Here’s a look back at how the game unfolded in our live chat.
0:13 4th: Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey missed a 23-yard field goal attempt.
12:19 4th — Cowboys 6, Eagles 0: Dallas finally scored the game’s first points on a 20-yard touchdown catch-and-run pass from Dak Prescott to Brice Butler. Kicker Dan Bailey missed the extra point attempt.
Halftime: It’s still scoreless. It’s the first scoreless game at halftime in the NFL since Dec. 11, 2011, when the Bears and Broncos accomplished… well, maybe that’s not the right word. But you get the idea. It’s also the first scoreless first half between the Eagles and Cowboys in the series’ history, dating back to 1960. for finding that tidbit.
5:28 2nd: A rare moment of entertainment in the game. Eagles punter Donnie Jones forgot to take his sweatpants off before entering the field. He took care of the matter .
14:00 2nd: Nick Foles exited after an underwhelming (to put it politely) performance. He completed just four of 11 passes for 39 yards, and was intercepted once. Nate Sudfeld replaced Foles.
