The Philadelphia Eagles dropped a heartbreaker on the road against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. It’s a game that saw Philadpehia force overtime before coming up short in the end.

This loss sent Philadephia to 6-7 on the season and pretty much completely out of the NFC Playoff picture. It also started with some drama.

Cowboys cornerback Jourdan Lewis seemingly lost the ball on the opening kickoff with the Eagles clearly recovering it for what would have been a huge early-game take away.

Unfortunately for Philadelphia, officials decided on replay that there was no clear recovery. Dallas kept the ball.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins isn’t having any of this. He absolutely blasted officials following the game in a statement that will certainly lead to a fine.

We understand full well where Jenkins is coming from here. But how about take some responsibility for the loss? Philadelphia’s defense gave up nearly 600 total yards, including this big time score from Amari Cooper.

Officials sure didn’t help. But the Eagles didn’t do themselves any favors here.
