It took the third Dez Bryant touchdown for Bill Davis to spare Bradley Fletcher further abuse and put Cary Williams exclusively on the Cowboys receiver. By that point, the Eagles were down, 35-27, and there was less than 11 minutes left in Sunday's game. Dallas quarterback Tony Romo threw only three more passes the rest of the way and the damage had already been done in an Eagles loss. Davis said he didn't think of making the move until he felt it was time to make it - after Fletcher was beaten for the last time and his technique wasn't sound.

Outside linebacker Trent Cole fractured a bone in his hand against the Cowboys on Sunday night, an NFL source said Monday. It's unclear whether the Eagles veteran will need season-ending surgery. Even if he doesn't, Cole would be a long shot to play against the Washington Redskins on Saturday. Cole was unavailable for comment after the game. Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he didn't have an update on Cole at his Monday news conference. If Cole is sidelined, Brandon Graham would start at the "Predator" outside linebacker spot opposite Connor Barwin.

WHAT SHOULD you take from Chip Kelly's declaration yesterday that Bradley Fletcher will remain a starting cornerback? Seemingly, the Eagles have resigned themselves to not having any better options, 14 games into the season. If they thought there was a move to make, they would have made it weeks ago. They were not surprised by what happened against Dallas. They were just crossing their fingers and hoping it wouldn't happen, through an effective pass rush, a sore-backed Tony Romo, or some combination thereof.

THE EAGLES were down 7-0 after a blink. They were down 21-0 in points and 167-0 in yards after about 3 minutes of the second quarter. Chip Kelly's plan, whatever it had been, was no longer. The plan was on fire. The season was on life support. And Mark Sanchez was on stage. For better or worse, it was his moment. The Eagles did not want to put the game into his hands. You know that, even though they would never admit it. They wanted this to be a LeSean McCoy game, one in which they re-established their dominance on the ground and had the Hippocratic oath tattooed on Sanchez's forehead.

AND NOW, for any Eagles faithful, to hope and to wish. The playoff berth that seemed a fait accompli 2 weeks ago now is tenuous. After consecutive home losses in December by a relatively healthy team, a playoff berth is anything but assured. What the Eagles accomplished last night, besides wasting a monumental comeback in front of a home crowd, is that they forfeited control of their own fate. Now, they need help. But, for argument's sake, we must assume that the Lions lose at Green Bay and/or Chicago.

Jeremy Maclin caught the ball and turned around with an airplane strip's worth of green in front of him, and the ground at Lincoln Financial Field seemed to tilt, as if he were suddenly running downhill. Maclin weaved to the middle of the field and back toward the sideline, his fellow wide receiver Jordan Matthews running interference for him throughout the 72-yard journey, until Maclin's right elbow landed on the Cowboys' 1-yard line. The Eagles scored a touchdown on the next play. After spotting the Cowboys a 21-point lead, they trailed by four.

Seventeen days earlier they were the secondary that stopped Tony Romo's touchdown streak at 38 games, held Dez Bryant in check, and also offered enough run support to keep DeMarco Murray under 100 yards for just the second time this season. It was more than just a step forward for the oft-maligned men in the Eagles defensive backfield; it was a giant leap that lifted the Eagles into first place in the NFC East with an unlikely Thanksgiving Day rout of the Dallas Cowboys down in Texas.

RIGHT THERE at the top of the Eagles defense's things-to-do list last night against the Cowboys, just as it was 17 days earlier in Arlington, Texas, was stopping DeMarco Murray. They held the NFL's leading rusher to 73 yards on 20 carries in their 33-10 rout of the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Did another good job against him last night, which might've been enough to win the game if cornerback Bradley Fletcher hadn't had the worst game of his career, giving up three touchdown passes to Dez Bryant in a 38-27 Dallas win. "There's no question that the Dallas Cowboys have weapons everywhere," defensive coordinator Bill Davis said after the game.

The Eagles-Cowboys rivalry heated up Sunday night even before the kickoff. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant were involved in a confrontation during warm-ups. They had three rounds of an apparent heated discussion during a 1-minute, 53-second video captured by Comcast SportsNet. Other players and coaches got between the high-profile players twice. During the first encounter, Jenkins walked away after about 20 seconds. Then he turned around as Bryant walked toward him. At that point, Eagles assistant defensive backs coach Todd Lyght and Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams stood between them.

Time is running out on Chip Kelly's second season, and the Eagles will now need help to reach the playoffs. After the Eagles dominated the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving, the Cowboys avenged the loss on Sunday night with a 38-27 win at Lincoln Financial Field to take control of the NFC East. The Eagles lost back-to-back games for the first time since October 2013 and dropped to 9-5 this season. They have games at Washington and New York remaining. The postseason is still well within the Eagles' reach, but they are outside the playoff bracket and need other teams to lose to open a spot.
