Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA
Terrell Owens turned in the most prolific game Sunday of the 24 games he's played in a season-and-a-half with the Cowboys and the fourth best of his career.

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips appointed Owens one of the captains for the game. ... Owens moved into 12th place ahead of Jimmy Smith on the all-time list with 12,445 yards receiving. ... All-Pro safety Brian Dawkins returned for Philadelphia after missing five games with a neck stinger. ... Sheppard left with a knee injury and didn't return.
After Donovan McNabb fumbled on the first play of the game, Philadelphia fans began booing an Eagles offense that lacked aggression and a vertical presence until it was far too late. On the flip side, Tony Romo and the Dallas offense put on a clinic of efficient production. The usually rock-solid Philly defense put up little resistance as Jason Garrett mixed in enough running plays to keep the defense honest but the Cowboys threw the ball at will. The protection was outstanding, and Terrell Owens got open against his former team time after time on a variety of routes on different levels of the field. Romo was deadly accurate and showed great poise and confidence in himself and his teammates. The contrast in these two passing games could not have been more apparent.
