Cowboys' Kyle Orton: 'I just threw a bad pass'

It was a different quarterback, but it was the same result for the Dallas Cowboys. With the game and the season on the line, the Cowboys turned over the ball when Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin intercepted back up Kyle Orton.

“I just threw a bad pass,” Orton said after the game, per the team’s official website. “Miles ran a great route and the same play we scored on the play before. Went to Miles this time and just threw it behind him and he (Boykin) made a nice catch on the ball.”

Aside from that interception and another one earlier in the game Orton played well. He completed 30 of 46 passes for 358 yards and threw two touchdowns.

“Obviously there were a couple of plays in the game that he would have liked back, but if you look at the whole body of work I thought that he did a heck of a job,” coach Jason Garrett told reporters. “He had a great week of practice. He was prepared, he was confident. The guys responded to him.”
