Taylor's Takes: It’s easy to see how injuries have affected the Cowboys’ defense, four players played every snap of the Cowboys’ win over Philadelphia and Danny McCray played all but one. Perhaps, that explains some of the team’s second-half woes. They were just tired. ... Sterling Moore, signed on Friday, played two snaps. One more indication of the Cowboys’ depth issues. ... Victor Butler had his most extensive playing time in three weeks because DeMarcus Ware missed several plays with a shoulder injury.
