Cowboys LT Tyron Smith reminds fans he's still elite vs Eagles

Terence Steele was a turnstile on Sunday, but the Cowboys offensive line largely held it together against the Eagles' vaunted defensive front. Left guard Tyler Smith made rookie sensation Jalen Carter a non-factor, but it was Tyron Smith's performance at left tackle that stole the show.

Smith didn't allow a single pressure on 57 pass-blocking snaps, per Pro Football Focus (subscription required). That's incredible for an oft-injured OL who was coming off a neck stinger. This season, Smith ranks third in pass-blocking efficiency (98.6) among tackles. He's allowed just five pressures across 193 pass-blocking snaps.

This is why the Cowboys continue to roster Smith amid all of his injuries. When healthy, he's still as good as any left tackle in the NFL. In order to keep him healthy, Dallas might want to think about holding him out of practice for the rest of the season.
