Cowboys vs. Eagles final score, results: Dallas crushes Philly on record-setting night – Sporting News

The Cowboys showed up in a big way Saturday night, beating the Eagles 51-26 in their final game of the 2021 regular season. The 51 points were the second-most put up by Dallas against the Eagles in the history of the series and the most scored by the franchise in Philadelphia.
Both teams set records in this game. The Cowboys set the NFL mark for most touchdown scorers in a season with 22. Corey Clement, Ito Smith and JaQuan Hardy completed the list with their first TDs of the season. Cedrick Wilson and Dalton Schultz each scored twice.   
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott set a franchise record for touchdown passes in a season with his 37th, surpassing Tony Romo. Prescott sat out the remainder of the game after setting the record at the beginning fourth quarter, with Cooper Rush taking over. It was surprising to fans how long coach Mike McCarthy kept his starting quarterback in the game.
Jalen Hurts was one of 16 Eagles starters out Saturday, but his backup, Gardner Minshew, still led the offense on three touchdown drives. Minshew completed 19 of 33 attempts for 186 yards. 
Eagles rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith played all of the first quarter and the beginning of the second quarter to earn just enough yards to set the franchise’s rookie record for receiving yards in a season (916). Eagles center Jason Kelce played just the first snap to extend his streak of consecutive starts to 122.
The Cowboys (12-5) can finish as high as the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs, but in order for that to happen, they’ll need the Rams, Cardinals and Buccaneers to all lose Sunday. If the Rams lose, the Cowboys will move up to the third seed.
The Eagles’ loss keeps them as the seventh seed in the NFC. Philadelphia (9-8) went 0-7 against teams with winning records this season.
