RUSHING OFFENSE: Chris Polk had a couple of touchdown runs and Darren Sproles had another. The Cowboys did a decent job on LeSean McCoy, holding him to 56 yards on 14 carries in the first three quarters.

Grade: B-minus

PASSING OFFENSE: Mark Sanchez made some good throws, missed on some others. He had a costly interception late in the third quarter when a pass for tight end Zach Ertz went off of Ertz's fingertips.

Grade: C-minus

RUN DEFENSE: The Eagles, who held DeMarco Murray to a season-low 73 yards in the Thanksgiving Day win, held him to 47 yards on 14 carries in the first half. But he had a pair of touchdown runs and a 21-yard run on a TD drive late in the third quarter.

Grade: B

PASS DEFENSE: Bradley Fletcher had The Night From Hell, giving up not one, not two, but three touchdown passes to Dez Bryant, including a back-breaker early in the fourth quarter to give the Cowboys a 10-point lead. Cary Williams was called for two illegal contact penalties and a 40-yard pass interference.

Grade: F

SPECIAL TEAMS: Josh Huff and Brad Smith had a costly miscommunication on the opening kickoff when they let Dan Bailey's short kick fall between them. It was recovered by the Cowboys and set up their first touchdown. Cody Parkey continued his accurate kicking. He had 47- and 43-yard field goals.

Grade: C-minus

OVERALL: The Eagles have been so good all season at starting fast. But not last night. Their special teams made an uncharacteristic game-opening error and the Eagles fell behind 21-0 three minutes into the second quarter. Their defense did a decent job against NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray. But cornerback Bradley Fletcher was putty in Dez Bryant's hands.

Grade: C-minus
