Premature Exaltation

Roy Williams didn't start. But it hasn't kept him from putting his sorry stamp on the game.

The Cowboys' safety was beaten by Eagles rookie receiver DeSean Jackson by -- what? -- 10 yards on that 60-yard reception. Jackson, inexplicably, dropped the ball in celebration at the 1. But because the ball was whistled dead, the play died with it at the 1. The Cowboys won the replay challenge -- honestly now, how do the refs not see that? -- but earned only one yard and a one-play reprieve before again falling behind.

Eagles 27, Cowboys 21.
