As the Eagles get ready for their second drive of the night, just a reminder that in the last 28 possessions Sean Lee has not been on the field, the Cowboys have allowed scores 19 times, 10 touchdowns and nine field goals.

Cowboys go after Ronald Darby twice in the red zone and he makes plays on Dez Bryant both times. The low-percentage fade ends in a Darby pass breakup and the Cowboys have to settle for another field goal.

Malcolm Jenkins has been feisty on this drive. He got into it with Jason Witten and then just head-butted Dak Prescott after the quarterback's first-down run.

The Cowboys defense looks lost on the first drive. They ran eight plays, never faced a third down and never had fewer than 4 yards on a play before Kenjon Barner's touchdown.

Cowboys take a 3-0 lead on Mike Nugent's 48-yard field goal but after Ryan Switzer's 61-yard kickoff return to the Philadelphia 37, they had to hope for a better start than that.

Cowboys inactives: K Dan Bailey, RB Darren McFadden, OT Tyron Smith, LB Sean Lee, S Jeff Heath, DT Daniel Ross, TE Blake Jarwin

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cowboys will go with just two tailbacks against Philadelphia with Darren McFadden something of a surprise inactive. With Ezekiel Elliott suspended, the belief was the Cowboys would go with Alfred Morris, Rod Smith and McFadden in a committee approach. McFadden had just one carry last week against Atlanta and lost 2 yards.

After going through a rehab workout before the game, All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith will not play against the Eagles, according to a source. Byron Bell will start at left tackle. There is hope Smith can play on Thanksgiving against the Los Angeles Chargers. This will be the second straight game he has missed since injuring his groin against Kansas City Chiefs.

The roof at AT&T Stadium will be open for the first time this season when the Cowboys take on the Eagles. The Cowboys are 2-3 all-time with the roof open and the doors closed. The last time the roof was open (as well as the doors) was against Philadelphia, a 29-23 overtime win for the Cowboys, last year.

Nowitzki hits another milestone

After going 1-of-3 in Saturday's win over Milwaukee, Dirk Nowitzki became the 14th player in NBA history with 1,800 made 3-pointers. Entering Sunday, the 7-footer ranks at No. 14 trailing J.R. Smith (1,802) and Kobe Bryant (1,827).

Dan Bailey, who will miss his fourth straight game with a groin injury, went through a series of field goal attempts after a rehab session prior to tonight's game against Philadelphia. When Bailey is able to return to game action the Cowboys are likely to keep two kickers on the 53-man roster with Mike Nugent handling kickoffs.

Sal Paolantonio asked Doug Pederson what he told his team about facing a desperate Cowboys club. He texted back: 1. "We can't worry about them. It's about us." 2. "I told them last night that our goal is to be 1-0 this week."
