4. Cooper Rush’s First (of a few) Interception
The first half was not great for Cooper Rush. The magic man who broke a franchise record for the Cowboys saw his pixie dust run out on the primetime stage. After going four games without a single interception, the tide shifted majorly in Philly.
The first of Rush’s interceptions came right after the Eagles went up 7-0. The Cowboys needed to score on that drive if they wanted to shift the mojo. The opposite happened.
On the first play of the possession, the backup QB attempted a pass for a very-well covered Michael Gallup. Rush probably shouldn’t have even thrown the ball in the first place.
Instead, the ball was deflected by James Bradberry and caught by CJ Gardner-Johnson giving the Eagles the ball in Cowboys territory. They would quickly go up 14-0.
Rush had another interception in the first half that doesn’t make this list. He completed only five passes in the first half causing his QB rating for the first two quarters to be an abominable 1.0.
