Miles Austin – No-brainer. 9 for 143, 3 TDs, one of them on an incredible catch over a defender in with he somehow kept his knees from going down and stretched across the end zone. He won this game for the Cowboys.
Jason Witten – 7 for 102. Ho hum.
DeMarcus Ware – A couple more sacks, giving him 4 on the season. Ho hum.
Jason Hatcher – Hey hey now. One of Rob Ryan’s “bullies” with 2 sacks and a QB hit. The Cowboys aren’t going anywhere unless a few players along that D Line step up at some point. Hatcher did just that on Sunday.
Tony Romo – Ribs, lung. You already know the story. Big numbers too – 20/33, 345, 2 TD, 0 INT
Fred Davis – Is it too early to say he’s the best player on this offense? 7 targets, 6 catches, 86 yards, and a TD.
Roy Helu – The Redskins may have a find here. 7.4 YPC on 10 carries.
London Fletcher – Not a typical day for Fletcher in the tackling department (just 5), but he had a couple hits on the QB and an INT that just kind of popped into his hands. Then again, you have to be around the ball to have one pop into your hands, and that’s exactly where London Fletcher always seems to be. He might make this list every week.
Justin Tuck – For the second straight week, I’m having trouble putting lipstick on this pig, even in a win. Let’s go with Tuck, who had a sack and a half in his return from a neck injury.
Losers after the jump:
Trent Cole – One of the more dominant performances I’ve ever seen from an Eagles D Lineman, and they’ve had quite a few good ones in my lifetime. Sam Baker is praying he doesn’t have to see Trent Cole again in January.
Cullen Jenkins – Harassed Matt Ryan all night, picked up a couple sacks. Just a force on the interior DL.
Jeremy Maclin – The huge drop at the end of the game is what people will remember, but it’s hard to overlook 13 catches (on 15 targets), 171 yards, and 2 TDs.
LeSean McCoy – 5.3 YPC on 18 carries, and a couple TDs. Ho hum.
Mike Kafka – Played error free ball in Michael Vick’s absence. Gave the Eagles a shot to win in the end.
Jason Peters – Dominant.
