list of nfl games all starting at 12:30 p.m. ET with nfl today check locally the festive holiday season warms the hearts of many except those who keep a cool eye on the upcoming playoffs for philadelphia , the road to glory has been paved with bumps, but the damage has been checked by the presence of a grudging defense that has kept the
eaglesin the doorway of a postseason birth last
weekthat door was opened a little wider. , but now on the prowl are the young and improved
cowboyswhose vacations have already been spoiled. and that now they hope to ruin their own texas stadium in irving texas the philadelphia eagle looking for a playoff spot face off against the host dallas
cowboyswhose season has mostly been below their record one in ten this is the the way it stands in the nfc east the giants vs the
eaglesfor two games so in a lot of ways it's a must have situation for philadelphia they need to win this one and then they'll play the giants in the meadows next
week. in the afternoon i'm pat summerall here with john madden we wish you all a happy thanksgiving it's been great for us the weather is great we are ready for a game that is unusual in many ways i think the philadelphia eagles have been struggling Without a doubt on offense, they've only scored 30 points in the last three games, what do they have to do to get things back on track?
Well, you know, Buddy Ryan is looking at this like the rest of the season and he's not just looking for a playoff. team doesn't want a wild card still thinks they can win the division is looking to win the division and said if we're going to do that we have to win every game now thinks this can be an advantage if they can get a win here today stay healthy later they have 10 days to prepare to play the giants but they have a job here to do he thinks they need to pressure aikman now with buddy ryan that's where it all starts that defense we gotta go after that quarterb ack we gotta get that quarterback in the field, then on offense, he feels he needs more consistency.
What bothers them is that they get inside the 20 and just can't score, in fact they've only scored one touchdown in the last eight quarters, John i. I know the record is one in ten, I'm sure everyone is almost familiar with the changes that have been made to the cowboy organization and on the field, however with the record being one in ten I also have a feeling enthusiasm they seem to be on the optimistic don't you think i'm okay with that and i think this is a team that is getting better jimmy johnson is getting his own team and i think i think that's why i got rid of it walker herschel walker was the running back you had run the ball 25 or 30 times a game i think jimmy johnson wanted to get away from that he wants to be a passing team troy aikman is their quarterback he is going to be a great player in this league so today if they are going to do something offensive has to be troy eggman and d what jimmy johnson cares about is can he control that line of scrimmage can he get pass protection for his quarterback that's what he has to do well he'll have a chance to find out very soon because the cowboys won the toss and will receive the kickoff and roger rouzing will kick it for the eagles he was with the cowboys until two weeks ago and zendejas the eagles kicker was with the cowboys and this has been a situation of musical chair with exchange kickers actually the two of them met in midfield before the game started and exchanged keys to an apartment one in philadelphia and one here for zendejas a thing on this lake pat i dont think you want to rent an apartment from long term if you're a kicker james dixon back deep it will be derek shepard to handle the kickoff he returns at about 24. a return of nine troy aikman will start at quarterback who missed five weeks due to injury and one week hot last week 25 of 33 and he is going to operate this offense tuning a newton rafferty crawford kerr and kevin gogan with steve folsom tight end paul palmer and daryl johnson running backs james dixon and derrick pastor started wide receivers the cowboys have really been decimated an 11 pickup. stop by wes hopkins and let's take a look at the defense philadelphia eagles very tough defensively white holes brown and clyde simmons having a great year reichenbach starts at outside linebacker for the first time in his career evans and harris the other two in high school jenkins and allen hopkins corners and showers the two safeties first and ten dallas in their own 36. dixon's spin to the right in the quarterback and he makes his way almost to midfield before he is stopped by clyde simmons i think the cowboys realized what they had in daryl johnston last week you can see he gained 50 yards and they just started using him.
They started this game with two fullbacks, daryl johnston and broderick sargent, so ha. His plan is to run out, run right at him, try to smooth out that defense and calm down the rush pass before another first and ten begins for dallas at his own 49 first and ten from there palmer now is the deep fact that begins the city acquired i think he would keep hitting johnston i mean they got a good thing johnston was a second round pick out of syracuse rookie and he's just getting the feel of this offense and i think they just realized they can be a running team from fullback now a final score the lions beat the browns in detroit 13-10 need seven this is a new thing the eagles are patting see they wearing their black shoes last week they had 13 guys wearing them reggie white got it for all the guys, he said he was watching colorado play nebraska and he said colorado wore black shoes and he liked it so he asked which one want from the other guys if they wanted and got a bunch of them put them in the I got a note from the nfl that that's not part of the uniform code but they're doing it anyway one of them even has a wrist band around it ankle length to match the black Thanksgiving shoes he takes out of his pocket.
He can glide towards the eagle. Thirty-five Waters made sure he stayed on the ground, but he got 13 and another Dallas first down. This is a tough guy. Troy Aikman. in there and if you give him a hole like this he'll take it look at that big gap there look they didn't stay in his fast pass lane now once he gets through here he can see he can get 10 yards before he has to getting in the slide not only a tough guy he's a big guy around 220 he's out making big money daryl johnson the ball carrier but a flag in the game will take him says jimmy johnson i'll tell you buddy ryan he's probably saying i told them they've been preaching it's a short week and he's been preaching to his guys hey this is an improved team and these guys are going to come for you 99 offside defense five now it's jerome brown that's gene barth the umpire first and five for the cowboys at eagle 31 right in now again a happy thanksgiving couldn't be nicer than it is here in texas today as far as weather and playing conditions go It's the lonely upside down eat zó wide went back inside stopped again by jerome brown that was a very good play by paul palmer there they just picked him up remember he was the boss of kansas city and then the detroit lions picked him up it's supposed to be the layup off the counter and he stops here he sees that whole bunch of guys he just stops and cuts back around two holes before he was supposed to go to second and two that's what gives you that quickness you know those guys who can cut on a dime, the hole isn't there, they don't have to run into it anyway, Palmer has been very effective ever since it's been her.
Now that they're back there, he wants it to happen because he wants to see what kind of blitzes will work. He doesn't like it when someone keeps a ball on him, controls it and runs it, that's what he likes. he believes that the only way to have a really good defense is to have a good running game. He came back and did some personal surveys of the teams that had won the super
bowland they looked like an inch tall and he said no team has ever gotten and won the super
bowlunless they can run the ball on third down you know this isn't it's a bad thing if you got third and in it's not a bad play to pass down if you're going to take a shot you're at the 25 yard line you can go for it on fourth down this isn't a bad thing add them all up and give them that fake play and throws a jerry rome standing next to jimmy johnson they go for it he understands it was the sergeant the ball carrier hit first by jerome brown with an assist from mike pitts no game yeah jerome brown is a big guy heavy over 300 lbs and when he gets to look at it jerome brown is there and when he walks into your backfield he gets some penetration there ain't gonna be a hole in there there ain't no cut back there a bunch of guys in green shirts and black shoes os on that stack they could have lost about a half yard of that zendejas with and after a very impressive start the cowboys go down into eagles territory and come out defenseless led by jerome brown so there are 9 27 left to play in the first fourth at texas stadium randall cunningham eagles quarterback across from him will be darwin shad alexander sultron heller at right tackle and keith jackson back a tight end byers and tony start as running backs though buyers often are parted ways out of the backfield johnson and carter are wide receiver randall cunningham last week through 43 times against the vikings have had a hard time scoring fires lined up as a tight end for tony focus time on first down those are dallas forward four note the absence of ed too tall jones talbert starting in place of him second and eighth position the linebackers of rio lockhart te having an outstanding year in the middle and that's the secondary walls williams horton and all of britain behind cunningham there's ed jones a remarkable career he's had i'll tell you and he's impressed for 15 years 15 years in the league and he doesn't start now, but he's a guy who's added a lot to this Dallas Cowboys organization and this team, well, he's a great player on the field. great rep off the field over shy yard jeffcoat and jack del rio took him down jack del rio was one of those new guys the cowboys got since the season started you know the first part of the season they were picking guys just like jack del rio they were signing guys on offensive defense from all over the league and after they finally traded herschel walker jimmy johnson had a team meeting and he's help ok guys this is it this is our team now and he said since then everyone felt much better about it that's a quick knee from Gene Barth and they're an inch away from first down it seems I thought you were I was wondering if it was a first down and Randall Cunningham he was saying that the play he hates to make the most is the quarterback's snake. just one yard vince all of britain is in a hurry not to keep jackson good one thing the cowboys feel that on defense the guy they have to stop is keith jackson that they feel is cunningham's security blanket you know from having him there he knows that no matter what happens he can always go and fill in most of the time a keith jackson had a great rookie year last year the buyers and nothing there ken norton was the first cowboy to hit him with an assist from lockhart you're that cro wd dude, you're just getting it, you've already had your turkey and then you come to the game or you come to your game and then you're going to eat your turkey or if you've got one of those fancy boxes you eat it during the game or you can do whatever previous before it happens after that is what turkey is and football goes hand in hand talking about it good mix third down sketchy cunningham intended for buyers manny hendricks made the save dean hamill as the man who pushed cu nningham and this is exactly the way the cowboys wanted to start today so they could control the line of scrimmage to move the ball which they did on their first drive rushing cunningham max reneker has been around for a while derrick shepard backs deep for the cowboys Ronniger's kick is good.
Shepard retreated to the 10-yard line. He moved away from the first wave and back to the 18-yard line before he was stopped by Ricky Shaw. d back so they get 47. well done and again a happy thanksgiving if you thought you had to get to the stadium on a lovely day nothing nothing still average running so far the cowboys with johnston a couple strong early runs are doing well i think they should stick with that they don't even have them in the game they have paul palmer back now palmer the long setback john said semi extended that's a tough pitch that's the kind of thing aikman can do although he can move he could move to his left and still throw the ball while saying thatit's a tough pitch because you're running to your left and so you're getting pressure that's what makes it tough you're getting pressure the guy's going to come up and he hit you right on the head and then he completes that reggie white that hits him and you know and he just had a concussion two weeks ago as a matter of fact he still has a bruise on his right ear and that sounds serious it's a big old bruise and there's nothing there clyde simmons at the stop a loss of two i think the first idea for the cowboys in this game was when they went to both fullbacks daryl johnston and broderick sergeant just hit him with a man blocking right at him is probably the way to draw things and slow things down doesn't work well against eagles because they're such a big rushing team and all four of those guys up front are very, very active second to 12 that's jerry roane on the headset jerry rome probably has as much to do with n troy aikman's advance in this league like any other cornell burbidge is the man on the move and aikman shoots again and they're going to rush him from there they make the ball go straight through it's not going to bounce the flag on the fly jenkins took him out of the limits are talked a lot on that sideline after i hit it's there against the eagle i heard one of the officials say when the ball is in the air you can't hit them dude ryan defense five yard penalty from the spot previous and first down and first down that's the important factor they didn't have enough yardage to give them a first down yeah that's a for wow what a thing iselle jenkins had to do there a screen pass is in the backfield and it's like a running play, so you can use your hands in a running play to play against a blocker, but what they say is that a ball was in the air. so if you use your hands when it falls in the air it's beyond interference 33 yard is the line of scrimmage and randall cunningham communicates with eagle's stick you know this is what eagles do if we look at it you know on that 46 defense , come on, they put all three guys here now, here's Reggie White over center, now they put Clyde Simmons here with his three linebackers on this side, they put up their safety, so they've got eight guys in this box and that's almost impossible . running against part of the reason they do it is so they block just reggie white he's tired of those double teams yeah and he likes to play over center because of single blocking what's coming up and he's out of bounds deep in dallas bullec k territory is a happy defensive lineman it's the second time in two weeks he handled the ball last week reggie white took a fumble and threw it sideways to golan oh look who's watching this he's saying look , i'm just standing in the line of scrimmage he was there he was being blocked he was being blocked up there by nate newton just standing there and here comes the ball the pressure is what caused it all it was the guy who got the interception he didn't take the pressure off he was the cop that was hanging around in the line of scrimmage that's the first interception of his career and the eagles have the ball jack del rio gets the ball back for dallas that's the kind of game you need from a defense when something bad hits him happens to your offense instead of taking you down get up go there get the ball back look at your reverse pivot here cunningham lost the ball coming out on his reverse pivot never really had it had no idea where it was to the ball but jack del rio d id call texas to m penn state pittsburgh notre dame thanksgiving weekend celebrate on cbs 3 52 remain to play in the first quarter at texas stadium the eagles get their interception and the cowboys recover a fumble now they have the ball back on their own 14 yard line first and ten the first couple of timeouts didn't work this time here's the fumble you know on that foam watch out mike chad he's a shooting guard when he passes, he hits the ball and it knocks it out of cunningham's hand but look at him on the clicker here, you see his right hand right there, look at the left guard when he shoots, he knocks it right there, he takes the ball out of cunningham's hand while doing a reverse pivot, that's something you're a poor old guard. just trying to make a block and what happens is you take the ball out of your quarterback's hand daryl johnson again in all fairness he hasn't had a lot of time the eagles putting a lot of pressure on him well and the other thing with all justice to aikman is you know he the t calvin martin who was his best catcher right he got hurt last week he lost michael irvin his other catcher actually he's iron you know the cowboys have had seven guys who have torn their ACLs and that's the worst leg injury you can have. if they've had seven of them this year two of them for their starting wide receiver that's a lot in one place well that's the injury that takes the longest to rehab too long still third and here's that shifting offense . we were talking about john well if you look at when they started michael irvin and calvin martin were the wide receivers and then and then the next thing you see they're the guys that are starting to date dixon and shepard scott and walker they were both running back to back and now at palmer and johnston so four of the guys he's growing into are different 3rd and 13. he's the man who hit him with flags all over the place that will be a penalty against the e agles this is one of those that goes on this is a real fight it was jerome brown that gogan was chasing we need marcus from queensberry here instead of gene barth they need a cage to put those guys in a cage match they forgot it's thanksgiving well one thing that just because the offense moves that just doesn't give the defense a free throw to their quarterback brent hager comes in and hits aikman that has to be a penalty against we have eagles on defense follow do from an unnecessary reference australian archives defense is defense is disqualified i still don't agree they still gave even though they took mike pitts out of the game you don't get a free kick you see they jumped on defense now whistleblowers are stopping what you don't get a free throw to come in and throw the quarterback down it's 54. it's hager well hager was the first to take the hit I'd say pits probably did something here c-74 there's probably something to that builds up something action there dude ryan wants to make sure who's disqualified hager is the guy that hit aikman well the guy who originally jumped over the sides was jerome brown the whistle doesn't blow they can get the quarterback if the whistle sounds so they shouldn't be able to hit him now they say it was pits that got disqualified but i think they're going to take another look i don't know why they disqualified him but they might disqualify him let me reiterate the archi you who had execution file against the defense that was enforced we have reference files unnecessary compensation however the philadelphia file was a disqualification file at number 74. it was number 74. i didn't see what you did right you're on the cake you'll see that it's right here in the middle of the fire, right there, so you can see what it's going to do. come back man those both hands are pumping yeah look you've got those elbows in here comes Reggie that was a free game that's as long as you'll see a last one here's Eric Shepard the intended catcher was the Pitts late hit what have caused that disqualification and after all that we will have mike saxon coming to punish henry williams widget deep for the eagles has been having all kinds of difficulties hey one thing this game has started with a very high intensity really yes 72 on level williams in his own 36th fought out of bounds for vince but now there is a lot of shouting in front of the eagle bench yes they were trying to shout for a massive face penalty in fact i saw an official flag come out. they might have been convinced of that pat in front of the eagle bench we've got a five yard face mask family added since the end of the five yard run let's see right here's the contraption and it's going to happen right here in front of the bench that he grabbed the face mask that's a legit call tried to let it go real quick but it's still called nothing nothing where's the screwdriver in the summer off john madden at texas stadium 249 stays in the first quarter this is what happened to him to pitts hand during the fight when you hit someone who has a helmet on you have to suffer the consequences and you can see they're still working on his hand down there so when guys fight they put tape and gloves and stuff in the pits, it looked like he had been in more than one of those. things that you see the scars on that hand that doesn't look like the first time the deal went on like that gold it looked like he knew what he was doing too, right?
Well, he had a lot of movement, he had a lot of things. kept his elbows on his chin down but he didn't get any work here he is Del Rio he's playing pretty good for this cowboy team he looks very alert he's been around remember when he played at USC he was also a heck of a baseball player and he had What to decide Whether to be a baseball player or a linebacker, he decided to go to the linebacker group and then it was New Orleans and then Kansas City and now here I remember him when he was in high school. and because he got kicked out he's going to have to leave the field they don't let him sit out and I think maybe because they're working on him he can stay out so long but what they like to do is when a guy gets kicked out they like to sneak out off the field and not let the crowd get excited about it, a smooth out, leave him out of the spread, he's got to get out of here, a 25-yard pickup to Randall Cunningham and this is what he does.
So okay I mean you have to have a spy and you have to have everything on Randall Cunningham you see he's back here now if you don't stay in your lane if you give him lane you'll see he's going to see the lane. here but then if he can beat that even though there is like a spy for him randall cunningham is good enough to beat a spy see the move right there he gets a block and a move and then he has the talent and the speed to make a big profit out of that, you don't have a first try. deep in dallas territory now anthony tony hits over the left side stopped by eugene lockhart you know that shows what a great player randall cunningham is because everybody knows he can fight or run so they spy on him a guy just reflects that and he stays with him so now the eagles know so when he goes to fight they send a jammer to the spot not many spies can stay with him anyway moving fires are a moving type all over the place it's not just in the backfield tight end wide receiver probably keith jackson is randall cunningham's favorite target and second favorite target is keith byers he was lined up wide receiver at the time it's funny you know johnny when he was at ohio state he had a reputation of course he was a great running back and no one knew he could catch the ball but in the last few years he has really emerged as a good receiver and he's probably, you know, with Mike Quick Out now and not having that receiver, that great game receiver, the Eagles. the passing game is more of that type of possession with fires in jackson that's the end of the first quarter with the score the cowboys nothing and the eagles nothing good healthy has the flavor that quenches your thirst diet pepsi the right apple computer the power to do your best and for today's chevrolet that invites you to see why no one is winning like the heartbeat of america on thanksgiving it's the eagles against the cowboys at texas stadium just beginning the second quarter still no scorers but the eagles have third down and one in cowboy 12 is mike pitts who is involved in that fight in the first quarter has left the field ejected and dejected hey this is the area where buddy ryan has been most worried about maybe not just for this game but for this entire playoff run going into the 20s and then boom getting it into the end zone like we said earlier they've only scored one touchdown and eight quarters cough and that was last week against the vikings and it took a miracle catch if you pull that off yeah chris carter did some kind of one handed thing at the end that was a great catch that's the move carter cunningham is going to carter norton on defense will bring a second down and pass eight yeah I think that's where it goes back to I think it goes back to not really having a great running game and then you get there and you have to pass and the more you get you get closer to the goal line, the more difficult it is to pass because everything is shortened and when you do not have deep threats that is an advantage for the defense the ball is on the nine actually second and goal from there you watch this type of delay game of this drawer you see it's kind of a counter and they don't come back but the cowboys played well they controlled the line of scrimmage they had their secondary above everyone in one lane this is a big zone here's the area wherethat randall cunningham likes to spread the defense and then have the option to throw it. either run it or run it and throw it and he can do both on the other side of the field from the big catch last week but another touchdown however it was a defender who was a big catch there I think he ended up getting it with him with a hand started off two handed and then looked like it ended up as a one handed catch randall cunningham is just going to come back it's a matter of timing one two three both throw it in there now look at this catch carter makes he raises he has it in two hands then he has to take it down one handed with the extra point with run or catch and that makes it seven eagles nothing another sensational catch from carter two hands on one hand welcome to the future where any arc Miguel pits in a fight midway through the first quarter he was disqualified and chris carter just caught that sensational touchdown pass this is how the fight started this is how it all started right again the whistle started brit hagar came in and threw aikm an to the ground aikman started the fight now you don't see him too often now i think he's smart enough to get the devil out of his number eight he actually grabs him and pushes him then you see the action there and the guy who finally gets kicked out is number 74, Mike Pitt, just keep watching him. he'll get more involved through that right hand right there and then we'll throw another one yeah anyway eagles score on a seven yard touchdown pass from cunningham to carter lead seven nothing is rusik kick dixon fumbo that was why jimmy johnson got rid of roger rouzak because of his short kickoff now he kicks an eagles onside kick he just signed him the other day he kicks a short fumble kick and rusek recovers you like k throws the ball towards the goal line that was at the 10-yard line does a smart thing right here instead of trying to pick it up it just falls on it you don't see a kicker make a lot of plays after kicking no you don't actually it's not like tackling, fighting and recovering plays and that kind of thing that's going to review this after the review by the replay official. what the review did was waste some time however it was a quick review and the eagles have it first and ten at the cowboys 43 yard line here's cunningham looking deep he should be intercepted or tackled at least it's ron johnson the intended receiver the the cowboys had him doubled up yeah that's what happens when you have a quarterback that's very confident he's going to try to get something even though there's double coverage I mean they covered johnson every way they you can cover again, short and deep in front and back. and outside they had him on a sandwich isaac holt and ray horton were back there with him like you say i think i think part of it is the kind of thing they just throw so many passes and catch so many passes and know each other so well that these things just come naturally I think Cunningham really has a feeling with those two guys with Keith Jackson and Keith Byers third and two fires lined up again as a tight end that's where this team is pat this eagle team you put it in that third try and with cunningham you always get that three way pass you only need five yards so you call for a pass and then he could pass it back for a touchdown like he did with chris carter he could step back and run and throw or he could come back and run enough to get first down which is exactly what he did in the dallas 28. eagles lead seven you know here's this thing we look at the line here and then we're going to get the blitz to now this is a race blitz where you just get all this the holes are filled so it's not the last it's a first try so you just made holes now you see here the cowboys have all the holes filled there's no place to run and comes up second and ten danny noonan jumped a little early i think so. you know that's the other thing randall cunningham is a master at changing that defense number 73 usurpation fenway of five yards still in the second half that was one where the defensive lineman instead of seeing the ball is listening to the cadence and then you you put that thing so hard count cunningham gives you and you jump second at five and then to philadelphia see if we can hear that count if he does it fast again this time while saying that was a great pitch that was shot from a cannon 73 offense a GM to face 10-yard penalty replay Now he threw that thing right over Eugene Lockhart.
Penalty's at 73. Ron Heller He's right tackle. He'll be at the top of the picture, right there, you see 73. Look, they said. right there you are ee he right handed him in the face ok walk i think that's pretty good quick guards he had the perfect position didn't he? yeah i mean you gotta let those guys use their hands but if they take it to the face then it's a split second penalty and 15 right this time and cunningham throws the screen pass to tony's case for jeff coat and he's taken down by jeff coat and jesse solomon the guy got that ron heller penalty there he's become a pretty good tackle i mean he's a good run blocker he's a good pass protector he's a big guy reminds me of how he looks at him carefully, I mean, I mean that face and the way he talks and stuff reminds me of a defensive guy, but he's a tough guy, you know, and he's one of those guys who'll block in the line of scrimmage and then, when the play goes downfield he'll run downfield and kick his 2nd or 3rd player 3rd and 11. mrs ron johnson incomplete and we'll see a field goal try i think using i know it'll be fine unless you here's a faker involved.
You know about Two's Beer for last weekend. Roger Rousek did not expect this kind of thing. He is not in soccer. He is not anywhere he is called. wearing a green jersey matt kavanaugh is the starter from 47 yards out i think someone on the eagle offensive front put the cowboys out he would think how fast he didn't get a shot i'll tell you that was a great play because like you say that got him out of the game field goal range or what Buddy Ryan thinks is the field goal queen and puts him back in a punt situation with Max running back.
Chad is having a hard time. He was the guy who hit the ball out of Cunningham's hand. on that fumble derek shepard backing up at about the 10 for dallas aim it on the sidelines looks like a pretty good kick goes to the end zone they almost had a chance to take it down to the back lily was there trying to do that but went t into the end zone the eagles lead cowboys seven to zero in the second quarter at texas stadium where the eagles lead cowboys seven to zero in the second quarter nine minutes 52 seconds remaining tomorrow 2 30 eastern standard time the arkansas razorbacks vs texas at m in college state a tough place to play i can tell you one day i see the band from arkansas is here today and they have to go so they have a tough deal too actually on the bus when we go to washington we're going through arkansas tonight it really is something when you get to the 34 yard line and you have to punt in a national football league and then you punt in the end zone just rec you missed 14 yards and you think the eagles are in their position in their development that somehow you shouldn't have to punt from the 34-yard line well they've changed kickers maybe dude ryan just didn't believe here's aikman a six up now that it's complete for derrick shepard an eight frankenbach gain made t Derrick Shepherd is the guy who started in the first game of the season.
The Cowboys played the New Orleans Saints and Shepherd was on the Saints team. He had a great comeback in that game and then the Saints saluted him and Jimmy Johnson remembered. and he picked it up and now he's a third starting wide receiver and about two cowboys operating from his own 28 yard line clyde simmons hey here's a good matchup slap here's one and i'll see nate newton here against jerome brown now this is two guys who actually weigh over 300 pounds each. This is like two sumo wrestlers here, boom, they get in, they're just pushing, pushing, punching each other. first down, both quarterbacks actually have more rushing yards than passing, most palmy left side, not much, maybe five, though you ever notice how a heavy guy always pulls up his pants, always, always raise your fan look na te newton made a good block that time on jerome brown then your pants always go up and your shirttails always hang down i think when you're a fat guy you always dream of the day your shirttail shirt don't hang out second down five you see it's automatic you always block block block and then pull up your pants i've done that all my life so that's not something you're getting here i mean i mean just look at it here take care of your protection here you go to see nate newton there against brown you see brown starting on the outside then he comes back on the inside and then he just gets pushed but when you get that kind of thing there's no way you can push to that guy. and then by the time he's done you have to pull up your pants, has he pulled those pants up where they belong?
The problem is that they won't stay up. Well, you have a few builds. from james dixon and the cowboys will have to put him aw Yeah, well, they got the ball out to midfield where they can punt from good field position and get the eagles back a little bit here. the pin and they took him down back there nice kick from saxon and good coverage from junior special team toddlertosi down to cover him 48 yard punt from saxon a return of five seven nothing eagles lead cowboys it's the return of the man named michael air jordan lift the rules against the warriors in the season premiere of the nba on cbs saturday second quarter 6 35 left to play before halftime the eagles seven the cowboys swim the eagles have the ball in their own yard 14 tony jesse solomon finally made the stop eagles they've had a pretty sure grip on things so far one turnover three times inside the 20-yard line they've only gotten seven points one penalty returned a cunningham touchdown pass to buyers and the other penalty took them out of field goal range they had to clear that's the kind of thing that will make a coach have a hard time digesting his thanksgiving turkey i'll tell you once more lately eugene lockhart made the stop, that's going to be a hold penalty against the eagles, that's a penalty, i think they should just rule out that it never used to be that hold against the run 65, offense, hold ten years penalty, repeat the first try, I mean, they should just quit. the 65 block is right here it's ron salt and you used to let them run into each other and you know you know and hit a little there now i don't think that's the play that kept hamill out of there i mean it was a block and just made it tony ran past and i think thats a tie from the previous game today in detroit the lions beat cleveland 13-10 rookie sanders the first to come back this year for detroit and in the nfl as a matter of made to rush a thousand yards this year thats what he does thats isaac holt whos down at number 30 for the cowboys who had replaced everson walls 7-0 eagles lead a battle of notre dame the power thats miami saturday nothing philadelphia they took isaac holt straight to the cowboy locker room i guess for the xrays ok it's his left hand i think he was coming across to do the slap on the tackle and his hand got caught in a face mask and it looked like he just went he dislocated something, pulled something out because they just grabbed the hand. and he took it out of the field let's see if we can see it here it's right there and we'll watch his left hand as you reach to see if it gets caught there as soon as he goes up here is when it happened now now watch him take his hand watch him take his left hand out and then it just keeps it out the coaches came in they just grabbed that left hand and carried it off the field and Keith Jackson who just caught that pass is still down he's had an injury p problem all year he's coming back almost to 100, that's a huge loss, well first he had the back injury then he had a knee then both angles hey that looked like it might be a sprained ankle again but again that wasn't it. one good ankle first look he knows he's hurt right away and again he came in with two bad ankles and one knee he said after the game last sunday he said he woke up the next day and said he just put his leg out of the bed and said he felt pretty good and put his other leg down said he still felt good said this is going to be a good week went for a while Mike Pits standing back in the tunnel he was turned away from the game after a fight in first quarter he has to leave the field he has already showered shaved and is ready to go home keith jackson is a player that if the eagles are really going to make a run in this division and a really serious run in playoffs and possible championshipsuper bowl that kind of thing they have to keep this guy healthy it's just been one of those persistent things all year you can see the frustration when he left well you know when he was away randall cunningham kept saying he misses keith jackson because he hes the guy you go to for this then he said boy thats putting a lot of pressure on me randall saying how much he misses me jimmy giles take his place its all britain he was the nearest cowboy and now what they probably going to do is take his sock off there and the shoe and they'll probably put more tape on there, well actually they're not going to take it off they're just going to tape it over the shoe you see under that sock it's got a tape on the ankle so now what. what they're going to do is they don't have time to go in and get all that stuff off, so they're just going to put a tape job right on the outside.
The second try doesn't have your number one guy there. he'll throw it to his number two guy there's 41 keith byers just started boom he walks out to the apartment makes a catch here then turns it on with speed gene lockhart trying to catch it byers gets that step on him makes a nice cut pulls out a ball and he finally puts it away because he knows he's going to be hit a 36-yard gain cunningham to shoot inside the cowboy 20 stopped by lockhart the john's word on isaac holt is he has a dislocated shoulder and won't be back in today's game it must have been when he slapped with that left hand that shoulder came out because he just got everything out right away on that play second down eagles they need eight for a cowboy first 19. yeah this is what crosses your mind sometimes you know you you get inside 20 and you start to struggle and you get a penalty and you don't just score a touchdown and eight quarters and so on, then you start to push too much when you get there and you can relax going up and down the field what are your eagles then they get here and maybe they are pressing it is something mental i have seen that Many teams have missed the third try, the eagles lead at seven, nothing, they have checked the clock and so far the score now, Roger Rouzek, 36 yards. here at dallas stadium then the eagles just signed him we talked to mike saxon yesterday the kicker the cowboys said he talked to roger rousseck and he said he went there for a tryout and he went 12 out of 12 and he knew the dude was signing him it was a good the news the bad news is he had to take a pay cut it's good to be employed though hey you know he held out and that's probably what got him here and I'm sure what upset Jimmy. johnson with him one thing about this if you look at this pat buddy ryan doesn't carry a kicker to get really comfortable he doesn't keep it around long enough buddy ryan's book on patience with kickers is not one you would drive to beli As long as you're very confident and I'll tell you anyone who has a lot of kickers on their team or has had a lot of kickers at some point has had a zendejas I guarantee I think there are like 13 of them I think half the teams in the nfl they have us at the dayhouse if not already lex will sign with the cowboys four different times at the end of today's game we will select players from the game from each team will be candidates for national life miller player of the week honors james dixon out of the boundaries near the 38 yard line keith jackson sprained his ankle again but the eagles tell us he'll be back fine i think when they see him they put the tape on the outside that's a bas Pretty good indicator that he's coming back if they thought it was more serious or if he thought it was more serious than that he would have gone to the locker room but the fact that they filmed him right there on the sideline he's going to play first and ten the cowboys ball a t their own 39. eagles lead 10 nothing jones said at the end of the bench the rest of the crew not in action right now second at seven back off finally cut ya know and that pin looked like aikman didn't he had no one open or someone ran the wrong pattern because he sure looked confused on that play let's see what we'll see when he's ready to shoot and see what he has on the field let's see if we stop him now you'll see he doesn't have anything here no got nothing here probably could have gone here or here but he didn't and he didn't seem confused then he started going up there but that's what he was looking at when he was ready to throw now he couldn't throw and he had to do this I hab I ria thought maybe I could have gone over there to the left side that was the first sack today for the eagles 201 I was going to give them the two minute warning but dallas called a timeout with one second to go before that two minute warning ng so they'll have two left you know you talk about football and thanksgiving it all goes together and here at dallas stadium it seems funny not seeing tom landry here that goes hand in hand too dallas cowboys, action thank you dallas stadium and tom landry and tech ram sitting in his box on the far side of the field so long such an important part of this organization to dixon had it knocked him out the official said no he didn't have it he didn't have it so now we'll get that two minute warning hello nfl charities announced twenty thousand dollar grant for big brothers big sisters america making full commitment to organization 157 mi l dollars, look at the ring of honor, don meredith, bob, lilly, don perkins, roger. staubach and the last name they just put in there not too long ago leroy jordan mill rimfro and chuck halley are the two you didn't see that one was made very recently and deservedly so saxon backed opponents for the cowboys and gizmo will iams back off Deep for the saxon eagles standing on their own 26 yard line and another flag further back down the field the first one was for roughing up the kicker I'm sure that's interesting now it's just a five yard penalty and it won't be the first down the cowboys are going to have a decision now you see saxon punt and you see him get hit after he punts the ball right there by andre waters now the flag goes down and it can be a 5 yard or a 15 yard if roughness is unnecessary it's a 15 if he's just bumping into the kicker it's a five if it's a five it won't be a first down obviously if it's at fifteen it would be no foul downfield all we have is bumping into the kicker so this is going to be an interesting decision now for jimmy johnson we see here we see the punt and then we see the run to the kicker and now it will still be fourth down but it looks like it will be fourth and two in midfield i think he is going to say a few three yards yeah you're still saying kick the fourth down penalty ball and previous years that would have been an automatic first down but that's a change that was made two years ago it was a rule change it was made so that it wasn't an automatic first down unless it was really trying to hurt the kicker and he barely grazed it so i'll put it back well we saw jimmy johnson say kick again i think when you're 10 nil and you're one and 10 this is not a bad position to go for a fake punt, we know they are not going to do it because we saw him already told him to kick saxon but the act that the timing was not good enough and nothing, the eagles lead the return week home to america continues saturday college football action at 12 o'clock ET number two ranked number 22 penn state vs. number 19 pittsburgh after that nba season premiere on cbs michael jordan the chicago bulls facing off against the golden state warriors full sports sanity here on cbs first fall eagles cunningham pulls out of the spread then only to continue what lies ahead saturday here on cbs the big game notre dame in miami as the eagles quickly come out the number one ranked notre dame against number seven miami trying to get out of bounds but got close to a first down however the eagles have three timeouts left under a minute if the eagles could get another 10 or 15 yards they would have chance to throw a hail mary but you can see in that last one randall cunningham got hit see jeff goat number 77 right there he's going to come and hit cun ningham right as he throws the ball or right after it looks like he took a shot that knocked him out of the air second and eight I think Cunningham is still sore here I think he's going down there trying to get some air back in himself you know what I it happened last week at the end of the half dan moreno made one more play and threw a hail mary and they got the touchdown with a second left in the half the eagles of course have seen that movie so you know the eagles are thinking about That, you also know the Cowboys are third-tier balls on the Eagle 28.
Again, Chris Carter was the intended catcher, the Eagles had to put him away with 37 seconds left. he went to play ron francis he was a defenseman i think matt darwin is too down because he was in pass protection and he went down right at the end of the play he is the eagles left tackle back the eagles felt y'all know that he was just recovering and playing their best football right now they're still controlling darwin ten nothing eagles lead cowboys were in the first half happy thanksgiving from the fruit of the loon boys and we got a great job yesterday in philadelphia at the cold the hardest thing about playing thanksgiving is you have to have that short week but if you can get through it without injuries and a win then you have the advantage of having 10 course days in 10 days they have to go up and play the giants at the meadows the giants play san francisco monday night well it was kind of encouraging to see matt darwin walk away even though he's coming out the back of d e the end zone and just going well in the locker room at least he's walking without any help running on his back to kick the eagles derek shepard back deep for the cowboys standing on their own 30. 37 seconds left to play in the first half 10-00 philadelphia are the Cowboys have two timeouts left. 34-yard punt by running back approaching Half Brent's nerve with scores from today's other scores, the other game in Detroit and also the inspiring story of Redskins coach Joe Gibbs and his efforts to create a supportive environment. for troubled teens and he's really involved in that word about darwin is that he has a sprained knee in the locker room, he's gone, we don't know if he'll be able to come back or not, according to the official's opinion. the officials get rid of him to prevent a stall that's the penalty you saw Reggie White take off though I mean this guy saw 92 here when he takes off he runs about a 4-6 he's throwing that and Aikman had to get rid of the ball so he got penalized for throwing the ball, but what else can you do when you've got a 290 pound guy running a flat 4-6-40 at you?
Hey, that's what makes him one of the best defensive linemen in the league. not only is he big and strong and all that stuff and fast but he's got that speed I mean a guy that's that big shouldn't be able to run that fast he got some good parts when they handed over that field second in 27th the 30 by west hopkins four timeout philadelphia 14 seconds left to play in the first half ok the eagles are trying to get one more chance what they probably want to do is stop it here at third and then they want to go for a punt block and if they don't get one more shot maybe to roger rouzik if they can block the punt rusek needs a little less shirt or a little more arm he doesn't look like he should be playing the same game as reggie white you see old reggie white running around punching to the guys and the guy is here?
Even shabby you know Reggie also wears a t shirt a couple sizes too small I mean you know I mean norm boy I mean I'd wear triple extra large which is probably bigger and those are like shoulder pads for Kids too, I know. he does we'll see what bothers the key is guys holding them down and he thinks if you put stuff on them tight they have nothing to hold on with nine seconds left they're going to have to put some heat on mike saxon ok ya you know sometime with only nine seconds left sometimes the play is just put the 11 guys there and try to block the point you don't even have a punt returner there and if you have the ball sometimes the players just run with it back there if your kicker is a good enough athlete run th The timeout that way oh the eagles are putting gadgets in there so unless they play 12 you know they will only have 10 up there nine seconds left In the first half, Reggie White returns to help put the rush on Saxon I. i don't know what he's going to do maybe they just want him to make a quick pass like 92 and come right to the middle saxon just got him out of there william is going to try to feel him back i think saxon saw reggie white the lineup didn't go in here trying kicking it off I think you're absolutely right that's the end of the first half with himscoreboard the eagles 10 the cowboys nothing cbs national football league sports coverage is sponsored by ford and your ford dealer have you driven on board lately the good time great taste by mcdonald's and by anheuser-busch we brew our beers to be enjoyed the way responsible know when to say when he knew if he's a m billingham has 103 passing yards 33 rushing yards threw the one touchdown pass to catch carter here actually he's had two spectacular catches in the last two weeks well you can see that cunningham he's looking all the way, that's a timing bastard, chris carter, he's just gonna throw it. and again and let Carter go up for a jump.
It's interesting that Chris Carter is now his big player, but the guys he still goes to are Keith Byers and Keith Jackson, who caught eight of the passes in the first half and us still. I don't know if Jackson will be back after that sprained ankle. cbs sports coverage of the national soccer league will continue after this message and a word from your local station darling where is the downside Wouldn't it be great for Sony to give people the most entertaining ways to be entertained and for Honda inviting you to try out the new deal? thanksgiving afternoon eagles lead cowboys 10 nothing they kick too to start second half pans deep back for philadelphia will start it ten nothing eagles lead short game two over 25 a comeback of 11 stopped by bill base tan long a game here now he plays on special teams and i think you leave he's down they knocked him out he's going to the wrong sideline he's groggy well he was with the eagles you know i know but either he's going there because he doesn't know where he is or he's going there to argue with someone I think he sees a galaxy or something no no and then the penalty is against the cowboys but zendejas got hit and he was groggy and he got up he talked to cunningham and then he went back down he probably forgot or lost who he was with gene barth the ref and there's still a lot of buzz and zendejas is still down jimmy johnson on the field now talking to one of the refs and dejas is back you know most of the time if a kicker c He starts and doesn't really get to make the tackle th don't block him the eagles sent someone after zendeja that's probably what he was discussing he wasn't going to go down but I don't think he knows what he's discussing I don't think so now at least I don't know what johnson is very upset well zendeja still hasn't got his bearings i used to be there when you kicked you had to run and cover your kicks and they always send someone after you they took him down their axes first and ten eagles on his own 41 yard line stopped by jeff copeland after a gain of three you know one thing about randall cunningham you can see how he likes his running backs and tight ends wide receivers he only has two of nine seventh grade running backs thats buyers most and then ends tight three for three so aside from the tight end and running backs they had only completed two passes to a wide receiver one of them went for a touchdown here comes the flip cunnin chase gham out of pocket in the direction of buyers. the chrysler game for the bra roughing up bystanders the call against the tobin cowboys that's tony colbert and you see cunningham throw the ball goldberg pushes him after he throws it i don't know how hard it is but i think the umpire is trying from catching gene barth control of the game after the zendejas thing we had a big fight in the first half we had an ejection we had jimmy johnson on the field arguing and he's probably saying I'm not going to let this get out of hand that's really not seemed to rough up the passer eugene lockhart leads all tacklers in the nfl has had a breakout year and continues to do well he likes this defense even though they have different guys playing he's playing different guys on each side but the old flex defense was more of a read and taking space this gives Gene Lockhart this defense gives them a little more freedom to go after the ball carrier and jump on him second spot and seven buyers open to right he's a wide receiver this time in the direction of fire the fans are still upset about that call to tony tolbert you said it had to be one the ref was just trying to show him he was in control of the game because it sure wasn't like that it seems like a roughing penalty for anything it seems more like a push than anything else third and seven eagles in the cowboy 38. nothing sorry ken reeves he's at left tackle matt darwin i saw him he just got back on the field not in lineup fires in left slot this time looking that way now he's looking the other way yeah we just got word zendejas got shot in the head and they're not sure if he'll be able to kick again well he's chewing gum from chewing that's a good sign and they're smelling salts they've got the smelling salts up there trying to get those cobwebs off it looks like he took a pretty good shot first down eagle ace thats a cowboy myers is down inside about 12 and still on his feet fighting everson walls fi finally took him down this is that fast break game where both the guard and the tackle pulling the byers are going to step up and They will stand behind him. ken reeves is number 66, he will end up leading. gets right behind him runs off that thing keeps his feet moving and the jeans just can't get them down looks like an old bulldog finally got the second try and one on the 13th well we've had everything else we might as well have one of those crowd noise yard penalties attacked against the eagles i think randall cunningham was talking to the bench and he gave him that signal hurry don't put him in there early that makes it second of six in any case cunningham another spectacular catch by chris carter in the end zone and it's a touchdown. the walls were hit and he just gave up, he just stood there.
I tell you, if I had gone and run through it, I could have knocked that ball out of there, but what good would it help? it was randall cunningham's fake punk. You have both feet on the ground. I'm sure they did it to review it. I think a guy makes an acrobatic catch like that with one hand. You have to give him the touchdown. Something about Chris Carter in the end zone and doing it with one hand. The left foot is down and the right foot is down. It's hard to tell if that's on the line or we don't have to look at it here we can look just down the line he's got the ball left foot is in right foot is in I think if he had possession his feet were in now look at the ball i think he had possession all the way i think its a good catch thats a review for the official replay the score counts touchdown touchdown bruzek will attempt the extra point 18 yard touchdown pass cunningham to carter another brilliant catch rusex the extra point is good it does 17-nothing eagles with 11 27 to play in the third quarter at number one texas stadium notre dame fight against the power that is miami saturday boss that chris carter runs easier here is everson walls carter he's going to take it here bring it here they go around the walls and then back around the corner but look at the quarterback too randall cunningham with the bomb you see the bomb there everson walls was m irando glanced there just as he was given that move by chris carter who made a spectacular catch for the second time today to go along with the one he made last week is having a good time in the end zone has done all day thanksgiving really has to go to the 35 tomorrow at 2:30 the razorbacks vs the aggies at college station at 2:30 ET the winner in all probability cotton bowl the loser maybe for the john hancock sun bowl that it's what they put on pat fighters they put some stuff in there to stop the bleeding i'm surprised they don't have that thing they pull out of the ice and you know, to put pressure on him i think he's been like the prize boxer and wrestler from the beginning 17 -0 daryl johnson yeah they started running with daryl johnston they got away i think it wasn't a bad way to look this is a tough guy i mean this guy is a guy who is a good blocker a good runner , you don't know what he knows, it's a combination, he's tough when he was in high school, he had a 4.0 GPA, the guy's a student too. look they just ran in there they take their helmet off they just checked their head is ok their eyes are still there they have all the stuff and the eagles say they have it wes hopkins thinks he got it and the eagles came up with yes ya they lead 17 to nothing i think andre waters went in there and made the puck he will start left and see number 20 come in they get a pretty good block there he has a hole i could see it right there 20 come in andre waters you talk about a short guy who brings a big blitz came in there and really hit johnston but this guy is a guy who plays the game as a linebacker he's a defensive back and he stays fired up he knows that made a hit, the other guy knows he made a hit and they're going to high five and flap for about five minutes on that eagle first down from the dallas 43 inside the 40. five yard pickups that's what makes that the eagles be a good team if you watch you know they don't really don't have all their stuff clicking offense but they play a good defense we look at that turnover ratio and that's what gives them a seven and four record and we look at the difference between them and the cowboys and that's part of the reason the cowboys are one in ten that's just second down five balls at 39 del rio at stoppage nine and a half minutes left third quarter 17 nothing eagles yeah that is what b preaches uddy ryan preaches turnovers i'm sure he's very happy with andre aguas because he dude believes that on defense you can get the ball and on defense you can score points you don't have to sit there and play defense you can be offensive on defense play a good defense and develop a running game that gets to you there's dude ryan who spins says from one of the cowboys defenders and then a group joins jack del rio first sees heller near 73 and those completions man runs down wants a piece of someone you don't see a lot of tackles down the field on a completion pass which is randall cunningham back here he finds fires in the middle he just shoots it a little spin after spin he's going to find a bunch of white jerseys but then he's going to get help from his friend well there's reeves there comes heller he just puts his helmet there he just starts knocking down the pile chipping fire split off to the right you tangled with ron francis hey randall cunningham tried to throw the same pass to the buyers that he threw to chris carter even the bomb part of it you know he came back boom pumped then came back reloaded and threw it in there making him second in 10 the eagles, dallas, 17. he was right in cunningham's face that's kind of hard when you go here it's all of britain and you're going out here and you're running in a blitz it's almost impossible to see cunningham come out there all great britain coming this way cunningham i just had to pull thats thats the only thing if you going to audible that would have been a play to audible out of there stop by francis the 12 yard truck i think thats why cunningham is so comfortable with keith jackson because he's getting a blitz, he's getting a strong run and he knows jackson will be in the middle and he'll find something that jackson plays on a defensive back the same way a pass rusher plays offensive lineups, v ea that he has the same technique. use the same technique first and goal on five for the eagles but we'll see the play come here now tony is trying to reach the ball and break the plane of the goal line but once you get your knees down that's where the ball is for you. knees down i see he touched the goal line but his knee was down second and touchdown goal from a touchdown keith shoots eagles extend their lead pretty good control there myers just does this himself i mean he has stopped he's stopped that side and he just keeps running and moving and clawing and pushing and puts the ball out hits the extra point and it's 24-nil philadelphia leads with 6 52 remaining in the third quarter a commanding lead scoring after the fumble recovery eight plays 43 yards 337 held it byers got the one yard way touchdown still working on ron sultan yeah they dont have that thing stand still but thanksgiving might think of a nod happy thanksgiving to the eagles that flying kic koff unit has finally gone out of bounds and will bring it back to 35.
America's Homecoming week continues Saturday with soccer action college american at 12 ET penn state vs pittsburgh after that as the nba season premiere on cbs michael jordan and the chicago bulls square off against the golden state warriors and later that day more action college football ranked number one notre dame facing number seven miami big day saturday here on cbs hey that last touchdown i think he had to give it to andrewaters because it was his hit on daryl johnston that got the eagles to put the ball in good field position to get away from center fell down got back up finally throws in palmer's direction but there's nothing there just couldn't get enough hey aikman is having a frustrating day he hasn't been doing well on a lot of things and I don't think it was protection his protection really hasn't been that bad but it's this kind of thing you know the ri Guard Crawford Kerr steps on him his foot and he knocks him down and he has to get up with not having guys to throw to and not having guys open, plus he's got that bruise, a big old bruise is right here.
The second try is down. He was hit by a white pass. meant for steve folsom and aquin is struggling to get up why did reggie white make a move look at him right here he's going to go up and take a heavy inside charge here luckily they had a double team but look when he decides to take the inside you see him right there then he comes back , they keep a back to take them down but when you feel a guy like Reggie at your feet and then a guy like Clyde Simmons coming from the other side you better get rid of the ball third and ten the heat will continue looping white within that time he's chasing him again flag in the game aikman that's the other thing reggie white did we talked about before he has so much speed i mean he has the sides look at him boom he's going to come insi Defensive get on the field, five yard penalty, now look at him. take off watch his feet aikman has good speed reggie white can catch him from behind and then does some damage when he gets there and a penalty marker ation on the play that's a neutral zone here now the neutral zone is the length of the ball so it's here So when you line up in this zone you get that hand and stuff so that's line up in the neutral zone that it is a penalty. on that line you can't put that pressure on him when the pass is complete that's the derrick shepard but not enough for a first down a four lightning gain upstream to make the head that's going to measure the waters is down on the across the field he's a guy who made the stop he's also the man who caused that fumble before it led to the eagles last touchdown jerry jones the owner president the general manager of the dallas cowboys on the sidelines i'll tell you that's hard to be an owner on the sidelines when your team is down 24-0 i was talking to him before the game there were some reports in a newspaper earlier this week that the cowboys are having some difficulty meeting some of their financial obligations and all that has been retracted and he actually told me that financially the cowboys were already as much help as any nfl team and there was a story that they owed eight or men a check for 1.5 million dollars and he didn't get it, of course, there was nothing true in that room and one out of bounds inside the 15. you pull the hamstring, I guarantee you he did, it was like he got shot, hey there was a nice block on nate newton's line of scrimmage, turned jerome brown, watch out he's going to come out right there. look at 61. get him out of there he made the hole now watch the sergeant walk up the field and you'll see right where he pulls his hamstring right there that thing blew ok well that's you don't know pain unless you've had one.
The kind that it's like it could be a cramp though too, but that's like driving a car and having a flat tire and getting hit at the last second. Derek Shepard was the intended recipient. this league is just a sophomore guy but he's a really good coverage guy actually out of all the plays that's the first play I can remember today that he was thrown at and that's a coverage like a general coverage and he what really helped him with confidence was having to cover mike fast and practice every day as a rookie this is the deepest penetration of cowboy day in eight months pedals backwards shoot outwards intended for junior carl latosi almost gets intercepted by byron evans and he had a touchdown in front of him you see sergeant broderick taking him to the sidelines you said a pulled hamstring is a really painful thing it's like something snaps there and there's no way to get comfortable after it happens there's a guy he doesn't look comfortable he doesn't have a full hamstring but he's hurting dixon the intended receiver allen was with him like a flag down in the end zone i don't know if i would get too in ate with eric allen because his coverage has been great maybe let's say he would find someone else to pitch it you wonder why the officials have to have conferences look at those eagles standing around saying it's just dead ball that they want to enter the cup. now he got the interception well you know what they say and i agree whats the difference between that and a guy scoring a touchdown and dunking the ball because the clock stopped anyway after the interception was called taunting that it's unsportsmanlike car 20 back to the 10 yard line oh it wasn't called they put a new rule in about five or six years ago that you can't taunt or prime now if you know what either of those two words means you shouldn't even be playing defense. pricked the ball like you said penalty takes him back to ten eagles still lead 24-0 24 dallas nothing pat summerhall with john madden 520 left in the 3rd quarter not sure what kind of animal that is , no gain 5 14 Left third quarter made the stop on fire, but a penalty against the eagles, I think the eagles are going to be in good shape because you know they now have a 24-nil lead in the third quarter, so what anyone who is injured friend can start to rest from time to time after the game they will have three days off and that will allow them to rest a little more and then they will have a long week of preparation for the giant first the form will be quite good for the front of the end of the three days will help buyers catch the pass a win of three jack del rio can make you know they are going to play the giants the giants will be out in a short week because they are still playing or monday night in san francisco ok so it will be a combination of one team having a long week the other having a short week so you remember the first time they played the eagles they beat the giant third and seven in the 13th hunningham will operate from and chris carter gets to 42 illegal first down stop by hendricks but a 29 yard gain and they'll keep the ball and keep the clock ticking you know what chris carter does is he really has the movement and you know he's coming then he'll cross and you Watch it at the top of the screen.
He's coming all the way and then he catches the ball. He now he thinks about the touchdown. He now he's still making moves. He looks a lot like a basketball player who plays soccer. In fact, he is an excellent basketball player. A gain of 18 stopped by Robert Williams. You are the only two types. go to hell with that it's not going to come out look at him here he's going to throw the ball here number 77 jeff cabra is going to hit him around the leg right after he threw it looked like it went crooked but there was no way it was going to come out on that flight byers caught eight passes for 90 yards johnson gets another eagle first and ten for lockhart 13 yard win over cowboy bench sergeant not sure what happened we thought it was a hamstring now it looks like they are working on one from his ankles i think sometimes you can get a combo thing where you can get more than one thing actually i see they're putting out that stretcher card now they fire tony behind cunningham first in the dallas twenty- seven year old norton was the tony creeper was upset and still upset boy that's ken norton jr in number 51 he was the guy there you know who his father is two flags down now i think something's going to happen to number 51 the cowboys in that one this is this I It's an all time thanksgiving record for fighting pat we've spent more time fighting than ever in thanksgiving history these guys think whoever wears the different color they wear is their turkey of the day, well you know there's that thing between buddy ryan and the cowboys and when jimmy johnson got the job with the cowboys he said no east carolinas at this time and that kind of thing roderick sargent this should be this could lead us to sunday for Describing this penalty probably some shots had an unnecessary reference to the man who brought down the ball carrier, however the ball spinner grabbed his mask and yanked him down.
There was a subsequent foul from the defense 51 on all offsets. that and everyone is offset they say there was a norton penalty the first and then a tony penalty for counterattacking then there will be another norton penalty they didn't know the same guy did them both but that's stupid when they offset it , even cunningham is there, he shouldn't be there, look at them, that's second for uh norton, stupid punishment when they just say everything is upset. here's cunningham draw play with tony and he fights for yards yeah this has been a very intense game the whole time i mean there really has been some banging in this thing we've had two fights we've had an ejection we've had a mockery and i. i think buddy ryan loves it he's not opposed to toning or dumping or harris was saying buddy likes confidence and he said well he really likes coffee that's what he likes second of all jackson is coming in in game so giles i think its just spelling jackson. and they still keep jackson playing, but don't get tired playing every play.
There are 50 seconds left to play in the third quarter, the eagles lead the cowboys 24 to nothing, third down and seven on the dallas 24. now jackson comes out they leave with four wide receivers, one of them with a fire flag on the play again danny noonan made the stop you know one other thing i think we have to hit a thanksgiving record for penalties we've had 18. close to that i mean that's us i'm not done with the third quarter yet with 79 offense 10 penalty yards repeat 3rd down with call against mike shan or schatz had a few things today yeah he was the guy that knocked the ball out of cunningham's hands i think he was a guy that moved on a field goal took him out of the field goal rounds had a holding penalty but he's doing a good job of blocking you all you hear is his name so but you haven't seen his guy get to cunningham third and 16. no doubt that's what Cunningham, I mean, he had so many dimensions that he's like a guy who can make something happen anytime he's out there, that's the end of the third quarter with the score, eagles 24, cowboys, nothing if you don't . i wanna slow your way to the top cause you know tim madden is here on thanksgiving i hope yours was good it's been so far for the eagles 24 to nothing lead dallas he'll be back with matt kavanaugh holding up roger rouzek to try to make it 27-00 former eagles cowboy roger rousey fourth and four philadelphia 38-yard attempt johnson has little to celebrate today the eagles have shut out his team the kick is good it's 27-00 john you know the cowboy of the what you were talking about earlier the cowboys not only i haven't been able to start anyone aikman hasn't had time to throw to someone who did get open well i mean it's a frustrating game for the cowboys in general offensively because they haven't really been able to run going and they haven't been able to really calm down that pass rush so if they do they don't have anybody open and so they just haven't hit anything and then if you don't hit anybody then it's hard to get the other stuff we're sending turkey and cheesesteak in that order yeah good combo hey we got a big turkey for the bus. smash that thing when this game is over oh we're heading to washington sunday when the bears visit rfk stadium all i can say is save me a piece alright in fact i always think you know what we should do is just cutting the drumstick out you know the big old drumstick and giving it to the player of the game is a good idea yeah yeah I mean you get a big turkey leg and you just smack it and someone walks into the locker room and gives I tell the dude and let him start eating his turkey right after the game i think i'll do that 27 nothing while the cruiser is ready under the stadium and the turkey is ready on board look at that thing there's a turkey right there enjoy that's dave on the driver he's just taking it out of the oven that thing looks like it's ready to go look at that yeah that will get you at least half way down the road oh look at the tape we have the tapes to see a big old knife and fork in there i don't like it those grapes there i'm going to rip his leg off we'll give it to player of the game ok idk who is clyde simmons at stop 47 nothing eagles scoring some cunningham hit carter another spectacular end zone catch rusec 36 yard field goal at second quarter cunningham back to carter 18 yards away another one handed catch and keith shoots with a run fromone yard touchdown then ruzek another field goal that's all points none for cowboys kavanagh starts to relax on the sideline second and five wrestling with jenkins to get a cowboy first and a gain of 13. yeah , i think buddy ryan shows up going into the fourth quarter with a 27 lead and nothing he's happy with his quarterback randall cunningham and cunningham has been down a couple times today and i would hope the buddy would take him out and rest him for the next one.
He's taken a couple of pretty good shots. The 13-yard gain gives the Cowboys a first down. The longest pass of him concludes the day. The trade from the middle and I think he got it back. Jerome Brown caused the confusion. Yes, Jimmy Johnson was saying yesterday when someone asked him what he needed. I think he needs to get those draft options or maybe make some trades with the draft options. i really need to start making this team better it's another training camp with his first year he said he wasn't sure what training camp really was but then as you go into a season you realize how important it was when you did it you want it again he was down wes hopkins walked out of there with the ball but he was down jerome brown now he has it jimmy johnson had that outstanding record in college this has to be a very very frustrating year for him and the new owner i think it shows well you know like he said he said it's easy to talk and you wait for it you know it's going to happen he said but then live first in dallas on the eagle 36 straight back shot him down we'll be back at texas stadium after. this word from your local station this is cbs football league is sponsored by subaru we built our reputation by building a better sharp car electronics corporation from sharp mines come sharp products and by prudential bait values rock solid market wise las eagles have switched quarterbacks that's matt kavanaugh cunningham day he's probably done 21 for 33 he's back in that offensive holding area that'll be the cue you know cunningham only threw one pass ten yard penalty, repeat first down kavanagh kavanaugh he only threw one pass i would say and and that was so far and that was an interception against the denver broncos then he goes in he gets another shot he throws one and there's a penalty so still he hasn't to complete a pass to a guy on his team who counts the eagles have been penalized 12 times for 85 yards myers and truman are now the two running backs behind kavanagh voy a ron johnson bounced off his hands manny hendricks was the defender here's steve walsh, dallas' other rookie quarterback, getting ready to get some exposure today here are two tall jones playing in the final minutes of maybe his career and this game with 11 minutes left first ed tootall jones has been a defensive end for years now he's moved on a man to defensive tackle robert williams made the stop a gain of seven this is the kind of thing you always like to do like the eagles for Of course, is that you know getting that big advantage on the road in this part of the season is even more important because now you know that after the first four or five or six games, all the players in the international soccer league are playing hurt, You only know how much it hurts, so when you can rest some of that stuff, it becomes a huge plus. ntage for you, third, that would be enough for a first down, but okay, there are two flags on the play, they won't let Matt Kavanaugh have an official finish for this season, but we're at it again, that's the second, it'll be another one. holding on against the eagles and then there's another downfield dave remington is now playing center in place of david alexander for the eagles against offense an illegal block in the back after downfield completion for number 85 that penalties disallowed we got offensive control by number 50 we'll enforce that file we'll play third down well that was dave remington who i just said replaced him dave had replaced dave alexander look he's right there on the ball and they say that he's holding a shotgun it's hard to have to cross the ball, get it between his legs, get his left hand up and then go back to pass protection right there at the start he had pretty good blocking it seems like a pretty good position there they moved to the back eagles is third and 23 now i don't know if you're leading dallas 27 to nothing troy aikman on the sidelines didn't have much today i'll tell you it's been a it's been a d It was long for him it looks like there are going to be walls when the cowboys get the ball back.
Aquin went 5 of 18 for just 29 more big yards, sorry 7 of 21. You know, the thing is, he's had big days the last two games, but he's played against it. miami and phoenix who didn't have the rush pass were softer defenses than he faced today against this eagles team running to point from the side his foot does a cowboy rebound and the eagles were on their own 35 acres so that we have 8 52 left in the fourth quarter 27-nothing after a 16-yard punt by Renegade 505 jeans the zipper jeans with a traditional Levi's fit that's pretty much the story of this game five turnovers from the cowboys carter two spectacular touchdown receptions and cunningham 21 of 33 for 234 yards that's all i c an opinion on summarizing what happened here the defense has done well too i think in this game we have exactly what we started , we had a team that is one and ten is one of the worst teams in the national soccer league, we had another that is seven and four that is on its way to the playoffs and is one of the best teams in the league and when They meet, something like this is going to happen on the first try, Walsh goes back to a lot of speculation, particularly earlier in the year, about whether they would keep him and Eglin. one of them would be traded rakeman has a clause in his contract that said it can't be that he brought him down it's them when things go wrong there's not much that can be lonelier than being a quarterback when things go well you I guarantee you everyone is jumping around your locker no one calls you on the phone 2nd and 3rd that's where Reggie White likes to line up best we talked about it when he can get a pass he runs up the middle check it out here , he's right over the center now here he is remington he's going to take a side and go right up to the middle look at him 92 he's over the center rafferty just pushes him away he's too strong for him and the good thing about lining up in the middle is once you get through him you see once he gets past rafferty there now you're right at quarterback when you come in from the outside you can get past your guy and you still have four or five yards to run which will make him third and home plate of d iez income earmarked for derek shepard got it momentarily sammy lilly back there with him he's a little short he hadn't come back but i had him there again shepard had his hands too close to his body and every time you get them that close when the ball hits your hands is going to simultaneously hit your shoulder pads that's exactly what happened and then when it hits your shoulder pads they're hard plastic and the ball bounces and Lily put a hand in to help it stay bounced on fourth down meant for bernard. sketchy ford eric allen back there with him and so the eagles will take over lead 27 to nothing with 6 51 left to play texas a m penn state pittsburgh notre dame thanksgiving weekend celebrate on cbs tonight on cbs it starts with a charlie brown thanksgiving which is followed by superman 2 starring christopher reeve margo kidder and gene hackman and they're all part of america homecoming week tonight here on cbs to go see whitney houston and it was a saturday game at night so he played the first half and buddy ryan led him and keith jackson to leave in the second half and you know it's that kind of thing you know when people say buddy ryan is a player coach happy action day thanksgiving time for live lottery drawings for thursday november 23,

There was a penalty. They finally got their first if he ran into a good catch. The eagles excluded the cowboys. 27-00 minutes and 20 seconds remaining. You have everything, just run, the jeans will do it. not calling a timeout, what good would it do for the eagles to improve their record to eight-and-four and stay behind the giants depending on what happens to them against the 49ers on Monday night? They could be a game behind or fall too far behind. be the last play sherman gets the kavanagh carry gain four look at ron heller he's still down here still got some action he's saying boy this is a long game i started the last play of the game they're still trying to get through my shield ok we'll be back we still have to pick the outstanding player for both teams once again final score is philadelphia 27 dallas cowboys nothing honey where is mars? john madden pat summerhall here happy thank you watching one more time and the final score philadelphia 27 dallasnothing and our picks as game players chris carter of the eagles jim jepcod of the cowboys have been chosen by us miller light players of the game they qualify for player of the week honors the miller brewing company will make a donation of 1,000 on behalf of the players to unite cerebral palsy and that's how the scoring went eagles pass cunningham to carter and they got seven nothings in the second quarter then roger ruzick hit a 36 yard field goal also in the second fourth to make it 10-0 cunningham to carter again another spectacular catch by carter and then keith byers from one yard to make the 24 nothing on the third and finally another 38 yard roosek field goal as 27-0 philadelphia eagles shutout the dallas cowboys to improve their record to eight and four the vote for the eagles 27 dallas nothing john madden has come up with a new award there's the turkey on the bus and someone gets that drumstick yeah we just cut off the drumstick we'll give it to reggie white i think you know eagles shut out cowboys you got a shutout you have to give it to a defensive guy and i think this is the guy that gets a stick award actually looks like he's waiting for it right now we're just going to hit him take him to the locker room right now i think he can handle it oh yeah that will be eaten before he leaves the locker room so again that's the final score 27 nothing in the texas stadium irving texas we hope it was a happy thanksgiving to john madden i'm pat summerhall saying goodbye from texas stadium irving where the final score is was philadelphia 27 dallas nothing join us tomorrow for the action of college football when the arkansas razorbacks travel to college station to take on texas a m and a key southwestern conference game that sports coverage has been watching from cbs national soccer league when usa homecoming week continues with superman nothing to make the planet a safer place place for all christopher reeve team hackman superman 2 tonight you
