For the second straight week the Eagles have spotted an opponent 17 points. The Cowboys lead, 17-0, through one quarter and have virtually ran over, through and around the Eagles’ porous defense. The Birds’ offense has been just as bad, and needed almost 15 minutes before recording their first first down of the game.
In other news, Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens and Cowboys safety Roy Williams met for the first time in the game. If you recall, Williams was the one who ended Owens’ regular season last year when he horse collar tackled him and broke his leg. This time, Owens caught a screen pass out of the backfield and was brought down by Williams for a 1-yard loss.
