Dallas Cowboys CeeDee Lamb in Christmas Spirit in First Half vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lam had a great first half against Philadelphia Eagles.
The Cowboys trailed the Eagles 20-17 at halftime, but they have Lamb to thank for keeping them in the game after Philly jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead.
Lamb finished the first half with eight catches for 108 yards and a 36-yard touchdown grab. He accounted for 108 of Dallas’ 168 first-half passing yards. Cowboys running back Tony Pollard was the team’s second-leading receiver with 29 yards. After Jayron Kearse was intercepted by the Eagles’ quarterback Gardner Minshew, Lamb and the Dallas offense capitalized.
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 turned around his defender for a remarkable touchdown.
The Cowboys took a much-needed 14-10 lead for the time being. Prescott went 16 of 18 for 168 yards and a touchdown in the first half, but it was a critical pick-six he threw on Dallas’ fifth offensive play that represented dark ghosts of Christmas past from Week 15’s loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. But after being down three at the break, Prescott went 36
