Cowboys Top Eagles 17-3

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) --  The Dallas Cowboys put a firm hold on first place in the NFC East, defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 17-3 and improving to 4-3 on the season.

Tony Romo threw for 317 yards and a touchdown, and the defense held Chip Kelly's high octane offense to just three points.

"Obviously, our defense was outstanding," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "That offense challenges you in so many ways. They have a really good scheme. Our defense played sound, played together. They were physical and our tackling was outstanding."

Nick Foles started for the injured Michael Vick, but left the game with a head injury.  Rookie Matt Barkley was inserted into the game and threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter.

"I was maybe a little too aggressive on some of those throws, trying to advance the ball down the field and help our team win," Barkley said. "I learned a lot today. I'll learn even more watching the tape."

The Eagles (3-4) have now lost a franchise record nine-straight games at home.
