Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill pressed into kicking duty

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles marched into AT&T Stadium on Sunday and handled the division-rival Dallas Cowboys 37-9 to extend their winning streak to eight and NFC East lead to four with six remaining.

The rookie out of Memphis went to the trainers table, and then exited the field, not long after missing a 34-yard field goal attempt wide right. It's not what they'd draw up, but on a night when the Cowboys are getting nothing but field field goals, it might hold up.

Darby came up with his first interception as an Eagle midway through the second quarter at the Dallas 46-yard line but the Eagles were unable to capitalize on the turnover.

Injury Report: Kicker Jake Elliott suffered a head injury and his status is unknown. He was ruled out for the rest of the game at halftime.

The Eagles signed Elliott in September after placing kicker Caleb Sturgis (hip) on injured reserve, but they would have the option of reactivating Sturgis if Elliott misses significant time.

Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill practiced kicks on the sidelines after Elliott left the game and could serve as a backup kicker.
