Eagles hand Cowboys sixth straight loss, 33-27 in OT

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Sam Bradford threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Matthews in overtime and the Philadelphia Eagles sent the Dallas Cowboys to their longest losing streak in 26 years with a 33-27 victory in overtime Sunday night.
 
Matthews broke away from Byron Jones and ran past safety J.J. Wilcox on the first possession of overtime to hand the Cowboys (2-6) their sixth straight loss.
 
Jordan Hicks had a 67-yard interception return for a touchdown for the Eagles (4-4).
 
The Cowboys have lost every game without quarterback Tony Romo, who will miss at least one more with a broken left collarbone.
 

Matthews had nine catches for 133 yards. DeMarco Murray had 161 total yards -- 83 rushing and 78 receiving -- in his first game on his old home field after winning the NFL rushing title with the Cowboys last season.
 
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.
