With nothing left to play for and health at the forefront of Philadelphia's concern, the Eagles sputtered in a bad, lackluster loss to their hated rival on home turf. Foles had a frightful game, completing just 50 percent of his passes. Nothing can ever go totally right for the Eagles even in their finest moments, and the loss of an MVP candidate down the home stretch is just the latest example of this.
Both Jones, aside from trying to tackle Ezekiel Elliott on a 16-yard run in the second quarter, and Sudfeld actually played well.
For the Eagles, winning this game won't be as important as seeing Foles bounce back from last week's performance.
The Eagles have had a spectacular season and after a Christmas night victory against the Oakland Raiders they have clinched a first round bye and home field advantage throughout the playoffs and should be in a position to keep their players healthy this weekend. The good news is that the other side is picking up for you when they need to, but I think everybody knows obviously that these last two games... Wouldn't it be a good idea to play the offensive starters and get the offense in the best shape possible heading into the playoffs?
Unless the Eagles have been holding back offensively these last two weeks, it's a team that will have problems moving the ball against a decent NFC defense, which they will surely face in the playoffs.
Neither team was able to get past the 30-yard line of their opponent until the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, shortly followed by the first score of the game.
Third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld, a 6-foot-6, sixth-round pick by Washington a year ago who had never taken an National Football League snap, entered for the fifth series and looked impressive in every aspect; strong arm, good reads, nice footwork and solid mechanics. Not the way you'd imagine a 13-3 regular season would end, but with no major injuries to the core guys who are left, it ends up being a success anyway. Some will think the team rushed him back because the Eagles want to go all out for the Super Bowl this season.
"Everything we are doing we want to leave as good a taste in our mouths as we can against this Philadelphia team, one that should be quite a contender in the playoffs", Jones said.
On offense, expect to see the Eagles go very pass heavy early on to try to get Foles into a rhythm. Afforded a chance to show what he could do with extended action, the Cowboys picked on him for most of the day, and a lot of the offense they did manage in the second half came at his expense. He rehabilitated his injury all season and was activated Saturday for Sunday's game.
