Eagles 33, Cowboys 27, OT

Eagles extend Cowboy skid in OT

ARLINGTON, Texas — Sam Bradford threw a 41-yard touchdown to wide receiver Jordan Matthews in overtime and Philadelphia handed Dallas its sixth straight loss, the Cowboys' longest losing streak in 26 years.

Matthews broke away from cornerback Byron Jones and ran past safety J.J. Wilcox on the first drive of overtime. Matthews had nine catches for 133 yards.

Linebacker Jordan Hicks had a 67-yard interception return for a touchdown for the Eagles.

DeMarco Murray had 161 total yards — 83 rushing and 78 receiving — in his first game on his old home field after winning the 2014 NFL rushing title with Dallas.

The Cowboys have lost every game without quarterback Tony Romo, who will miss at least one more with a broken left collarbone. Dallas All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant had his first touchdown of the season in his second game back after missing five with a broken right foot.
