Notes on Nick: Foles struggles mightily against Cowboys


Eagles NFL from

In a meaningless game played in freezing temperatures, the Eagles' inactives list was littered with precautionary deactivations. The unit has avoided injuries for most of the year, with the exception being Hicks. With nothing left to play for and health at the forefront of Philadelphia's concern, the Eagles sputtered in a awful, lackluster loss to their hated rival on home turf.

However it sucks majorly that both have exited the Week 17 game against Philadelphia. With Joe Walker heading to injured reserve, there are whispers that Sidney Jones might be ready to go on Sunday.

Five of Philadelphia's defensive starters — LB Nigel Bradham, DE Brandon Graham, DT Tim Jernigan, S Rodney McLeod, CB Jalen Mills — and one regular — DE Derek Barnett — were inactive.

The Eagles should start fast in the first half, as their starters are more talented than what Dallas has to offer. Then came the waves of hope in that Nick Foles holds records for the best passing game of all time and has been a serviceable starter in the league for a few seasons. Him and his receivers need to create some chemistry together while at the same time avoiding a big injury.

When doctors finally cleared Jones to resume football activities earlier this month, the Eagles welcomed him onto the practice field but did not immediately elevate him to the active roster. Foles' elbow may still be bothering him. Also, the Eagles drafted two receivers, Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson.

Foles' showing, coupled with how decent Sudfeld looked, will no doubt stir talk of Sudfeld getting a chance to run the offense in the playoffs.

John Fox not likely to return to Chicago Bears after season
A loss that night would have left the Vikings tied for third place in the division, before a home game against the 4-1 Packers . That's just who John Fox is as a coach. "This place is insane hard for teams to come in and play, especially with our defense".

For the all the optimism that this fact can give Bird fans going into the playoffs, the Eagles have not played a complete game in the last three weeks and don't look like a team that's the prohibitive favorite to make it to the Super Bowl.

Of course, the good news for the Eagles is that they got the win and the home-field advantage throughout the playoffs that comes with it.

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. Defensively, the Eagles should just rest everyone, as now that Foles is the quarterback, they are the unit that the Eagles are going to have to rely on heavily in the playoffs.

"Wherever they want me to be", Dez Bryant said when asked about his expected role for next year. Star running back Ezekiel Elliott returned from a six-game suspension and ran for 97 yards, but quarterback Dak Prescott threw two interceptions - one a pick-six - in the game. While the Cowboys lost the game, they went into the playoffs healthy, something that should be every playoff team's number one priority at this point in the season.
