At Dallas News, I took a look at the four biggest plays for the Cowboys on Sunday night. . .

Not every play is created equally. In any game, there are a handful of plays that dictate the outcome of the contest. The Cowboys were on the right side of a few game-changing plays in their first matchup with the Eagles. Using a win probability graph, I showed how those plays changed the Cowboys’ fortunes in Week 10.

1: 23-Yard Touchdown to Dez Bryant

On a crucial 3rd and 2 at the Eagles’ 23-yard line, Tony Romo bought time to find Bryant across the field, allowing the receiver to dodge defenders on his way to a score. The play tied the game at 17 and increased the Cowboys’ chances of winning from 35 percent to 49 percent.
