    Another interesting fact is that the Cowboys still have not allowed over 20 points this season. This is the first time since 1972 that the Cowboys' has done this well.

    The last time the Eagles and Cowboys met with a record of 4-1 or better was on October 16th, 1994… wait a second?! Yep, 28 years ago exactly that similar game took place. Dallas won that old game with a score of 24-13.

    Running Back has 305 total yards and one touchdown. This duel threat of a running back duo is critical when it comes to winning big games like this one.
