Cowboys seek first 2-0 start since 2008 and 10th straight road win. ... Cowboys are 5-1 on Sept. 20. ... QB Tony Romo is 8-6 vs. Eagles. Romo is 76-48 after 124 career starts, same record Hall of Famer Troy Aikman had at that point. ... TE Jason Witten has 133 catches for 1,493 yards and seven TDs vs. Eagles. ...
