    NFL 1979, Week 10: Philadelphia 27, Cleveland 3 

    A team that scored 66 points last week could only muster 3 seven days later, not good enough to stop the Eagles from flying high in a 27-3 triumph.

    Wilbert Montgomery was clearly deserving of the game’s MVP award.  He carried the ball 22 times for 129 yards and two scores, and also caught five passes for another 130 yards.

    The Eagles are now 6-4, the Browns fall to 4-6.

    NFL 1979, Week 10: NY Giants 24, Dallas 21 

    The Giants shocked even their most staunchest supporters with a ground and pound strategy with third string QB Randy Dean at the helm, starting the game with a TD drive that lasted over 10 minutes.  The Giants built a 24-0 lead going into the fourth quarter, and barely survived a furious Roger Staubach rally for the 24-21 win.

    Billy Taylor took the game’s MVP award, scoring two rushing touchdowns on 18 carries for 67 yards.

    The Giants move to 3-7, the Cowboys slip back to 5-5.
