    The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly For Cowboys Against Eagles

    Well, it wasn't pretty, but the were able to outlast the Philadelphia Eagles and improve to 6-1 with a 29-23 victory in overtime.

    This was by far the sloppiest the Cowboys have looked in 2016, and it nearly cost them the game. I would argue that the Philadelphia Eagles looked better in all three phases of the game, but the Cowboys were able to do just enough to win and improve their lead in the East division.

    I think winning these tough, hard-fought games will help the Dallas Cowboys overall, down the road, but it certainly isn't something we want to see on a regular basis.

    Having said all that, here is this week's edition of The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly. I hope you enjoy.

    The Good

    If we're being perfectly honest with ourselves, there wasn't a whole lot of good last night for the Dallas Cowboys against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    It was a sloppy game, but fortunately there were a few bright spots that allowed the Cowboys to do just enough to come away with the victory.

    Dez Bryant made his return to the field Sunday night against the Eagles, and proved to all those who wanted to him why it is a ludicrous idea.  only connected with Bryant four times, but the results were 113 yards and one game-changing touchdown.

    There was a lot of sloppiness last night, but there's no doubt in my mind Dez Bryant makes the Dallas Cowboys better.

    The Bad

    Cowboys Headlines - The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly For Cowboys Against Eagles 1The Dallas Cowboys were able to win a close game in overtime against the Eagles, but unfortunately they didn't escape without suffering some bad news.

    The for the Cowboys took a hit last night when Barry Church exited the game with an arm . The severity of the injury isn't really known yet, but it is believed to be at least fractured, if not broken.

    To add salt to the wound, Morris Claiborne also exited later in the game with a groin injury.  This is particularly unfortunate because Claiborne has been playing the best football of his entire career and is one of the reasons why the Cowboys is performing so well.

    If either of these two players have to miss any amount of time, then the secondary will be shorthanded and the entire defense will suffer as a consequence.

    Let's just hope that these injuries aren't too serious.

    The Ugly

    Cowboys Headlines - The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly For Cowboys Against Eagles 2I don't know about any of you, but I'm starting to get really nervous every time Lucky Whitehead is back to return either a punt or kickoff.

    Whitehead nearly fumbled away the opening kickoff, which would have given Philadelphia the ball inside the to start out the game.

    Fortunately, it was a lucky bounce that fell right back in his hands, but it could have put the Cowboys in the hole to start off the game.

    Lucky put the Cowboys in a bad situation later in the game when he fielded a punt inside the 10 yard line. To make matters worse, there was a on the play that backed the Cowboys offense up even further inside their own 5 yard line.

    It was just an overall ugly performance by Whitehead and I wouldn't be surprised if we see someone else returning punts and kickoffs.

    What's your good, bad, and ugly for the Cowboys vs Eagles?

    Dez makes the offense better? Over ten targets and 3 catches. Thats not better. Dak needs to remember why he has been winning, its been the efforts of all the wide receivers, not just Bryant. The proof was in the overtime win when he finally started using the wining combination.
