Doug Pederson on the Dolphins: They "played harder", wanted it more

The Miami Dolphins Shock The Eagles, Cowboys Retain NFC East Lead

The Cowboys still lead the division despite having a.500 record (6-6).

Gesicki's 15-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick in the right corner of the end zone over Philadelphia Eagles 6-foot cornerback Jalen Mills was his second touchdown in the past two games.

"Our discipline, our consistency, the lack of that that showed up in this football game, that's on me", Pederson said. The Eagles have dropped three straight and slipped to 5-7. Since then, the Cowboys have posted a 3-3 record, including their Week 13 loss to the Bills. National Football League historians also suggest that it is the first time in National Football League history that a punter has thrown a pass to a kicker for a touchdown.

Even running back Ezekiel Elliott is fifth in rushing with 909 yards this season, averaging an eighth-best 82.5 YDS/G.

For a team that was playing for the No. 1 draft pick earlier in the season (and still is in a sense based on the trades the front office made), Eagles head coach Doug Pederson holds Miami in the highest regard.

There were a lot of area Eagles fans watching the game hoping Mike had a strong contest. However, with four games remaining in the regular season, Philly just may have the advantage based on schedule alone. "It starts with me and I have to fix things this week heading into the Giants game". Philadelphia has the most embarrassing loss of the season and lost its chance to tie Dallas atop the NFC East as a result. A division-deciding Week 16 showdown with the Cowboys looms large, as the Eagles look to bounce back with wins against the Giants (2-10) and Redskins (3-9) over the next two weeks.
