    The Cowboys had a season-high 12 penalties against the Eagles, including six pre-snap. Five were from the offense, including three false starts by Doug Free and one by Ronald Leary. There was also an illegal shift by Tyron Smith and an offsides against defensive end Kyle Wilber.

    Coach Jason Garrett blamed some of it on the noise and the shotgun.

    “We just weren’t as clean as we needed to be, really, on both sides of the ball before the snap,” he said. “We had four false starts on offense. Some of them had to do with being in shotgun and noise and all of that. We just didn’t handle that as well as we needed to. Similarly, they got us on some hard counts on defense. One of them happened on an interception, so those are significant plays, and we have to do a better job of cleaning that up.”

    For the season, the Cowboys have 59 penalties for 408 yards, with 10 declined. Penalties have resulted in 18 first downs for the opponent and seven stalled drives for the Cowboys. The team penalty leaders are Morris Claiborne, Ronald Leary and Tyron Smith, each with five.
