Austin American-Statesman - - C SPORTS - C

catch on the tiebreak­ing drive, which was capped by Foles’ 15-yard pass to Ri­ley Cooper in the end zone.

Foles started his third straight game in place of Michael Vick, who was knocked out of a loss to Dal­las on Nov. 11 with a con­cus­sion.

McCoy is out with a con­cus­sion too.

Philadel­phia, which has lost seven straight games, was in front af­ter the first quar­ter for the first time all sea­son, but Dan Bai­ley got the Cow­boys on the board with a 39-yard field goal early in the sec­ond. DeMarco Mur­ray’s 1-yard touch­down run trimmed the Ea­gles’ lead to 14-10 with 41 sec­onds left in the half.

Romo over­came a hold­ing penalty and an 8-yard loss when Kevin Ogle­tree fum­bled a hand­off on a re­verse by com­plet­ing third-down passes to Ja­son Wit­ten, Bryant and Miles Austin. Romo then found Wit­ten all alone in the mid­dle of the field for 28 yards to the 1, set­ting up Mur­ray’s score.

Mur­ray started af­ter miss­ing six games with a sprained right foot.

The Ea­gles an­swered by driv­ing 52 yards in 35 sec­onds to a 43-yard field goal by Alex Hen­ery on the last play of the half. It was Hen­ery’s 20th straight suc­cess­ful field goal, and he now has the long­est cur­rent streak in the league af­ter Cleve­land’s Phil Daw­son, a former Texas Longhorn, had a kick blocked Sun­day.

The Cow­boys wel­comed Mur­ray back by run­ning him three straight times to start the game af­ter call­ing 52 straight pass plays from the sec­ond quar­ter to the end of a Thanks­giv­ing loss to Washington.
