Dallas Cowboys hold off Philadelphia Eagles

Breaking Down the Three Headed Monster of Running Backs

And then Dan Bailey missed the extra point, which fit in perfectly with the rest of this game. In fact, with the Eagles picking him up after the preseason, their fans have never seen him in action.

Heading into week 17, the Philadelphia Eagles will square off against the Dallas Cowboys in their home finale of the 2017 season.

While there is something to be said for the bye teams losing momentum and rhythm with the week off between the final regular season game and the first playoff game, the Eagles aren't quite in that boat.

The Cowboys (9-7) earned their second straight winning season for the first time since five in a row from 2005-09.

Sure, Eagles coach Doug Pederson could sit a guy or there.

Both of those things matter a great deal, especially after watching Nick Foles play quarterback over the last two weeks. He is Indiana's all-time passing leader for yards and touchdowns. The difference is expectations are sky high for Jones, whereas Sudfeld is a total mystery.

The injury bug has gotten the Eagles pretty good this year, with star players such as Jordan Hicks out for the year with an Achilles injury and Darren Sproles, Jason Peters, and Carson Went done for the year with ACL injuries. Sudfeld said he has again quarterbacked the practice squad this week. He said his parents and two brothers will be in attendance. Fortunately I played in the Big 10 at in, so I played in a lot of weather ... The Eagles are going to rely on their ground game and the defense, but at least they know the road to the conference championship runs through Lincoln Financial Field. "It's kind of worse standing on the sideline". Foles was excellent in his first start after Carson Wentz went down for the season, tossing four TD passes in a 34-29 win at the Giants on December 17.

Sudfeld might not be the only Eagle to make his debut Sunday.

An outside cornerback group led by Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby has held its own this season in Jones' absence, but has had some letdowns over the last few weeks.

Fox is limiting the amount of pre-game access to the Minnesota Vikings this week for guest analyst Greg Olsen, in response to concerns raised by the team about an opposing player on the broadcast crew. He said the team wanted to "get through" Friday's practice before making that determination.

"The thing is, everything is fixable, and everything is correctable", Pederson said. The Eagles just want him to experience the speed of an National Football League game and show the coaching staff that he can play without fear.

Sunday marks the anniversary of the last time Jones played - in the Peach Bowl as a member of the Washington Huskies against Alabama.

Jones has not been available to reporters this week.

Graham did not practice at all this week while he focuses his time off the practice field nursing an ankle injury.

"Wiz needs to play".

Pederson also said left guard Stefen Wisniewski will play after missing the last couple games with an ankle, so maybe it's not so simple.

"I think that's foolish on my part".
