By virtue of this gain, the "Boys" can still hope to finish first in the division which includes the two teams.
The Texas club opened the machine in the fourth quarter, notably scoring 13 unanswered points in the last six minutes. Quarterback Dak Prescott found wide receiver CeeDee Lamb to tie the game 34-34. It was the second time the two men had teamed up for a touchdown in this game.
The rest of the Cowboys' points (11-4) in the final moments of the duel came from kicker Brett Maher, who had field goals for 48 and 26 yards.
At the Eagles (13-2), the pivot Gardner Minshew had the task of replacing Jalen Hurts behind the center, since the latter suffers from a shoulder injury. The substitute scored a ground major and found DeVonta Smith for six runs. He finished his game with a 60% success rate with his arm and threw two interceptions.
Pennsylvania defensive lineman Josh Sweat scored a defensive touchdown after intercepting a throw from Dak Prescott early in the game.
And eight for the 49ers
At Levi's Stadium, the San Francisco 49ers signed their eighth straight victory by defeating the Washington Commanders 37-20.
The California team, which is already guaranteed to end its regular season at the top of the Western section of the National Association, has not suffered defeat since October 23.
Quarterback Brock Purdy took advantage of the visit from the Commanders (7-7-1) to get a third victory since being dropped behind center due to the injury to Jimmy Garoppolo. The very last choice of the last draft of the NFL concluded his confrontation of the day with 15 successful passes on 22 attempts for 234 yards and 4 touchdowns. He was also the victim of larceny.
Both times he found a teammate in the paying zone, it was tight end George Kittle. The other majors for the 49ers (11-4) were the work of running backs Ray-Ray McCloud III and Christian McCaffrey. Kicker Robbie Gould was not left out with three field goals.
On the Washington side, pivot Taylor Heinicke found Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson in the paying zone. Carson Wentz was also sent into the fray and joined Curtis Samuel for six points.
