The Dallas Cowboys had their way with the Philadelphia Eagles' defense on Sunday night, marching up and down the field with relative ease on way to a 37-10 blowout victory.

The Eagles' secondary, a major weakness for the NFC East hopefuls, struggled in the loss, as Dak Prescott threw for 239 yards and one touchdown, completing 21 of 27 passes.

Philadelphia has reportedly decided to cut a veteran defensive back in the wake of the loss.

NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero first reported the news.

Scandrick, 32, played for the Cowboys from 2008-17. He's played for three NFL teams since, joining the Eagles before the start of the 2019 season.

Philadelphia dropped to 3-4 with the loss on Sunday night. The Eagles now trail the Cowboys by a game in the NFC East.

Doug Pederson's team will look to get back in the win column on Sunday. The Eagles will take on the Bills at 1 p.m. E.T. on FOX.
