Dallas Cowboys CeeDee Lamb in Christmas Spirit in First Half vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The Cowboys They trailed the Eagles by 20-17 at halftime. But Lamb kept them in the game after Philly took a quick 10-0 lead.
Lamb finished the first quarter with eight catches totalling 108 yards and a 36 yard touchdown catch. He was responsible for 108 of Dallas’ 168 first-half pass yards. Tony Pollard, Cowboys running back, was the second-leading receiver for the team with 29 yards.
After Eagles quarterback Gardner Minshew gave Jayron Kearse an interception, Lamb and the Dallas offense took full advantage.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott found Lamb for back to back catches to start the drive, before launching a deep pass to his top receiver on 3rd & 6, who spun around his defense for an impressive touchdown.
The Cowboys took a 14-10 lead for the moment. Prescott was 16 of 18 for an impressive 168 yard and a touchdown in halftime. But it was a crucial pick-six that he threw on Dallas’ fifth offensive play. It was a stark reminder of Week 15’s loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Prescott and Lamb will need to continue building on what could be a career best day for Dallas’ top receiver, after being down only three at the break.
