The Cowboys have had 19 possessions so far in two games without Ezekiel Elliott and have scored one touchdown on a drive that was 21 yards after a takeaway against Atlanta.

With Jake Elliott out, the Eagles are turning to linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill to kickoff. Let's see if he can do what Jeff Heath did for the Cowboys in San Francisco handling kickoffs.

Eagles open up the second half like they did the first with a 75-yard touchdown drive with Corey Clement's 11-yard touchdown. The Eagles faced third down twice and picked up 28 and 18 yards.

Life Without Sean Lee in the first half has gone much better for the Cowboys than in their previous five games without their linebacker. After the Eagles drove 75 yards for a touchdown on their first drive, they have had 30 yards on their last six possessions. The Cowboys have a 9-7 lead at halftime thanks to their defense. Life Without Ezekiel Elliott is still a work in progress.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys had a 15-play, 59-yard drive that took up 7:19 before Mike Nugent's third field goal of the first half.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Cowboys have turned to a methodical approach on this drive after calling five straight passes over their previous two possessions. They took over wit 8:14 left in the second quarter and have the ball at the Philadelphia 40 at the two-minute warning. They need to just grind away.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Everybody came to this game to see Dak Prescott vs. Carson Wentz. Turns out it's about the punters so far, Chris Jones vs. Donnie Jones. First guy who blinks wins.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Dak Prescott doesn't normally force the ball. He did there. Ronald Darby with the second pick of Prescott of the game. That's two interceptions for Prescott in four possessions.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys offense has hit a cold spell after two field goals on two possessions to open the game. They have had an interception and two three and outs.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

After completing his first five passes, Carson Wentz has six straight incomplete passes.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Cowboys defense comes up with a stop in a sudden-change situation after Dak Prescott's first interception since Oct. 8 when Jake Elliott's field goal attempt slices wide right. On a night in which the Cowboys will need breaks, that could loom large.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

As the Eagles get ready for their second drive of the night, just a reminder that in the last 28 possessions Sean Lee has not been on the field, the Cowboys have allowed scores 19 times, 10 touchdowns and nine field goals.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Cowboys go after Ronald Darby twice in the red zone and he makes plays on Dez Bryant both times. The low-percentage fade ends in a Darby pass breakup and the Cowboys have to settle for another field goal.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Malcolm Jenkins has been feisty on this drive. He got into it with Jason Witten and then just head-butted Dak Prescott after the quarterback's first-down run.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys defense looks lost on the first drive. They ran eight plays, never faced a third down and never had fewer than 4 yards on a play before Kenjon Barner's touchdown.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Cowboys take a 3-0 lead on Mike Nugent's 48-yard field goal but after Ryan Switzer's 61-yard kickoff return to the Philadelphia 37, they had to hope for a better start than that.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Cowboys inactives: K Dan Bailey, RB Darren McFadden, OT Tyron Smith, LB Sean Lee, S Jeff Heath, DT Daniel Ross, TE Blake Jarwin

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys will go with just two tailbacks against Philadelphia with Darren McFadden something of a surprise inactive. With Ezekiel Elliott suspended, the belief was the Cowboys would go with Alfred Morris, Rod Smith and McFadden in a committee approach. McFadden had just one carry last week against Atlanta and lost 2 yards.

Cowboys LT Smith sits out 2nd straight game

Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith will miss his second straight game with a groin injury, according to a source. With Smith out, Byron Bell will get the start at left tackle against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

After going through a rehab workout before the game, All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith will not play against the Eagles, according to a source. Byron Bell will start at left tackle. There is hope Smith can play on Thanksgiving against the Los Angeles Chargers. This will be the second straight game he has missed since injuring his groin against Kansas City Chiefs.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The roof at AT&T Stadium will be open for the first time this season when the Cowboys take on the Eagles. The Cowboys are 2-3 all-time with the roof open and the doors closed. The last time the roof was open (as well as the doors) was against Philadelphia, a 29-23 overtime win for the Cowboys, last year.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Dan Bailey, who will miss his fourth straight game with a groin injury, went through a series of field goal attempts after a rehab session prior to tonight's game against Philadelphia. When Bailey is able to return to game action the Cowboys are likely to keep two kickers on the 53-man roster with Mike Nugent handling kickoffs.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Cowboys All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith going through a pregame workout with director of rehabilitation Britt Brown a little more than three hours before kickoff. Smith is listed as questionable for the game after not practicing during the week.
