PHILADELPHIA -- On that second-and-goal play, it looked like Asante Samuel had a fist full of Roy Williams' jersey. Williams screamed for the call, but didn't get it. On third down, Tony Romo had Jason Witten wide open in the corner of the end zone but chose to fire a dart in the general direction of Marion Barber. It looked like the ball was tipped.

There's just no rhythm to this game. The Cowboys have obviously sustained longer drives, but it's not like they have a lot to show for it. The Eagles have to figure out how to combat the Cowboys' pressure. DeMarcus Ware and Jay Ratliff are in control of the game right now. Donovan McNabb is holding the ball too long in this game. And the Cowboys are doing a nice job of bringing him to the ground. You have to do that because McNabb has such tremendous lower body strength that he can slide away from tackles.
