07:55 PM ET 11.11 | Brandon Carr intercepting Nick Foles for a touchdown would be a neat story in itself, but when you realize that the Cowboys have now scored 21 unanswered points in a little over two minutes, well that's on another level. With four seconds remaining in the third quarter, Tony Romo, who has been near-perfect, found Dez Bryant on a 49-yard touchdown. At that point the score became tied at 17-17. In the next drive the Eagles went three-and-out, unable to move the chains with Nick Foles at quarterback and they punted. With the power of some good blocking, and a little bit of luck Dwayne Harris returned the ball 78 yards for a touchdown. The score was now 24-17. The Cowboys kicked off, the Eagles were a little shocked-- and then it happened. Dropping back Foles threw poorly, and a tipped pass resulted in a Brandon Carr pick-six to take the score to 31-17. 21 points in just two minutes, 29 seconds. The Cowboys beat the Eagles, 38-23.

Maybe Rex Ryan will join him, with those two standing at the door no-one could get in to shop....

Really. From what I saw of that game Marshawn Lynch basically beat the entire Jets D

You know it won't be too long before another team hires him to be their head coach.

He is under qualified. Xmas is coming up, and IMO working at the mall as Santa would be right up his alley.

Andy will go, someone else will pick him up. The owners use lemmings as a role model
