Taylor's Takes: Safety Charlie Peprah started at safety and received extensive playing time, enabling the Cowboys to cut back on Danny McCray's load in hopes of making him an even bigger difference-maker on special teams. ... Kenyon Coleman tore a triceps muscle in the second quarter, which mean Jason Hatcher played more than he has all season with Marcus Spears and Tyrone Crawford getting time at defensive end too. ... With the Eagles in so many formations with three receivers, Orlando Scandrick surpassed the 50-play mark for the first time this season. ... Victor Butler, relegated to the bench after struggling, while Anthony Spencer was out, played his best game of the season and was rewarded with additional playing time.
