The Philadelphia Eagles were embarrassed by the Dallas Cowboys on "Monday Night Football," dominated in all three facets of the game in a 41-21 loss to their NFC East rivals. The loss was another setback for Jalen Hurts, who finished with a subpar outing going 25-for-39 for 326 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions (86.1 rating) -- many of those yards coming when the game was out of hand.
Hurts and the Eagles offense looked lost throughout the night, failing to score on each of their first seven possessions. The Cowboys defense scored more points than the Eagles offense through the first 36 minutes of the game, signifying how poor Philadelphia was on that side of the ball.
"I didn't do a good enough job of leading," Hurts said after the loss. "I didn't do a good enough job of running our offense, of doing the things that I need to do. So it's on me. This one's on me.
"I didn't do my job. I didn't do my job and we didn't win the game. When I do my job, we win the game. I didn't do my job."
Hurts had an interception return for a touchdown when the game was still in hand, on a throw Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs read easily in returning for the score that essentially sealed the win for Dallas. The Eagles got the ball first to start the second half, yet failed to capitalize on a pass intended to DeVonta Smith that Diggs read the whole way.
On the Eagles' first seven possessions, they finished with five punts, two interceptions -- and just four first downs. Through three weeks of the season, there are more questions than answers on Hurts -- who continued to place the blame on himself for the humiliating defeat.
"Play calling was not the issue in this game," Hurts said. "I was the issue in this game."
