The Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles stayed undefeated by humbling the Cowboys and Cooper Rush on Sunday Night Football.
The Eagles are 6-0. And they don’t look like they’ll be slowing down anytime soon.
On Sunday Night Football they sent the Cowboys hurtling back to earth after their surprising 4-1 start without Dak Prescott.
Jalen Hurts and company jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first half. The Eagles defense intercepted Cooper Rush three times and could have had more. The Cowboys quarterback completed just 47.3 percent of his passes.
Even though Dallas tried to make it close late, Philadelphia easily pulled back out of range to win 26-17 and make sure the rest of the NFL took notice.

Hurst finished with two touchdowns and 155 yards. However, offensive line concerns may have cropped up with four sacks.
Philadelphia is heading for a bye week, so they will remain undefeated at least through next week. They’ll face the Steelers at the end of October.
While they could get surprised over the next month or so, they’ll likely be favored in their next four games against Pittsburgh, Houston, Washington and Indianapolis.
With a stout defense and capable offense, they could be set up for the long haul. However, they will face bigger tests down the line.
The Cowboys got a wake-up call at quarterback with Rush looking more like the backup he is. Fortunately, Dak Prescott could be back from injury soon. However, his status is still unknown. Dallas is certainly eager to get him back on the field today than they were yesterday.
Their next four games will be tricky with the Lions, Bears, Packers and Vikings coming up.
