Dallas Cowboys leave it up to defense

Posted: November 12, 2012 at 4:58 a.m.

Dallas Cowboys running back Felix Jones (28) dives for a touchdown on an 11-yard reception past Philadelphia Eagles free safety Kurt Coleman (42) during Sunday’s game in Philadelphia. Jones rushed for 71 yards on 16 carries and the Cowboys, who knocked Eagles quarterback Michael Vick out of the game in the second quarter with a concussion, won 38-23.

Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes that kept Dallas even through three quarters. Then the Cowboys let their defense and special teams run wild in the end zone to win big and pump some life back into the NFC East race.
