Cowboys Vs Eagles: Without Asante Samuel, Eagles Secondary a Major Concern

Just like last week, the Eagles secondary looks lost without Asante Samuel (and Ellis Hobbs). The “not blitzing” strategy has hardly been effective for Sean McDermott and it seems like it would be a good idea to scrap that whole plan. Still, the Cowboys haven’t tried exploiting it and continue to run draw plays, curls and bubble screens to people that aren’t named Dez Bryant, for which I and the Eagles are very grateful.

Both teams punted in their second drives of the game as the first quarter winds itself down. The Eagles have 90 yards to go at the start of their third drive.

7-7.
