IRVING, Texas (AP) George Selvie had the most sacks, and Kyle Wilber had the most snaps for the Dallas defensive line.
Somehow, life in the first game without DeMarcus Ware was just fine for the Cowboys.
A unit dubbed the "no-name group" by Dallas owner Jerry Jones dominated one of the league's best offenses in a 17-3 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday.
Even the offense got going, with Joseph Randle subbing adequately for running back DeMarco Murray and depth at receiver showing up again with Miles Austin still slowed by hamstring problems.
It may be hard for Dallas to hang on long without two big stars, but the defense has Tony Romo excited heading into Sunday's game at Detroit.
