The Dallas Cowboys had their three-game winning streak over NFC East rival Philadelphia snapped Sunday night at Cowboys Stadium losing close, 30-27.
The story of the game though was Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson who gained a staggering 210 yards on only four receptions and one touchdown.
"When he gets the ball in his hands, you better make sure you tackle him and tackle him with more than one guy," said Cowboys Interim Head Coach Jason Garrett. "They threw to him eight times; he caught four and was awfully productive when he did."
Dallas kept it close throughout the game however. A Jason Witten touchdown pass with 4:22 left in the game closed the Cowboys within three, 30-27, but could not get possession back for a chance to tie or go ahead.
Jason Garret drops to 3-2 as the head coach of the Cowboys. Dallas is now assured their first losing season since 2004. They host Washington on Dec. 19.
