PHILADELPHIA (CBS) --- The Eagles held Cowboys' star receiver Dez Bryant to four catches for 73-yards on Thursday, in which 38 of those yards came on one play, as the Birds stomped the 'Boys 33-10. It was just the fourth game this season Bryant did not find the end zone.
"They were being kinda cheap, that's another story," Bryant said after the game. "It is what it is, I'll get it cleaned up and I'll be fine."
Bryant, who left the game with a busted lip, was frustrated all game. Quarterback Tony Romo was held by the Eagles defense to just 199 yards passing, while throwing two interceptions. Bryant, however, isn't giving the Eagles much credit.
Instead, he's looking ahead to December 14th when these two teams will face off again, this time in South Philadelphia.
"I'm really not mad at all," Bryant said. "They beat us and I'm going to accept that, but [expletive] can't wait, but not looking past Chicago [on December 4th], but I cannot wait to go up there and play [Philadelphia] again, cannot wait."
With just under five minutes left in a 23-point game, Cowboys punt returner Dwayne Harris took his frustration out on Eagles corner Nolan Carroll. Carroll was positioning himself to down a beautiful punt by Donnie Jones inside the Cowboys' ten yard-line and Harris blind-sided Carroll, resulting in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty (watch here).
A min-scrum broke out, as Carroll's teammates came to his defense.
Let's just say the rematch in Philly on Sunday, December 14th at 8:30pm E.T., is going to be electric.
