Micah Parsons says he knew when the Eagles knew it was over.
Despite being thoroughly dominated in every facet of the game through the first thirty minutes on Monday night, Philadelphia could still have made it a one-score affair when they fielded the kickoff to start the third quarter at AT&T Stadium.
But three snaps later, Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs jumped in front of a Jalen Hurts pass and raced 59 yards to the end zone. The pick-six extended Dallas’s lead to 27-7. With over 28 minutes still to play, that one takeaway took away whatever wind might have been billowing around in Philadelphia’s sails. And Parsons saw it happen.
