Eagles Drop Regular-Season Finale, Finish With 13-3 Record

122917SidneyJones

Foles, in his third start of the year, completed 4 of 11 passes for 39 yards and one interception and posted an abysmal 9.3 passer rating. The defense locked the Cowboys down despite Dallas playing plenty of their starters, and the special teams were frankly one of the only fun things we got to watch all day. That was also the last time Philadelphia was blanked. They finally gave up a score in the beginning of the fourth quarter, but it's hard to be mad at them given how they held up over the course of the game. Foles' next chance to impress will come in two weeks, when the Eagles hosts an NFC divisional round playoff game.

With the loss, the Eagles finished the regular season with a 13-3 record and failed to win the meaningless game that would have given them their first 14-win season in franchise history.

Eagles P Donnie Jones ran onto the field for a punt with his warmup trousers still on and had to rip them off before the snap. They were unsuccessful on the extra point attempt leaving the game 6-0 in Dallas' favor.

Offensive stud No, he wasn't great, but Nate Sudfeld made a few good plays, including a 22-yard scramble. He's 23-of-49 (47 percent) for 202 yards with a TD and two interceptions since his four-touchdown outing against the New York Giants in Week 15. He was a force against the run, even after most of the other starters were out. He showed he can play tight coverage at times. He looked fast and smooth, but left at the end of the third quarter with cramps.

Key plays •Dak Prescott hit Brice Butler for a 20-yard touchdown pass to break the scoreless tie in the fourth quarter. It was the only score of the game. But he came up just short of the 1,000-yard mark for the season, wrapping up with 983 yards for the year.

The Cowboys went on to total 301 yards of offense, which included 129 yards rushing and 172 through the air. Philadelphia's defense did an excellent job of hurrying Dak Prescott, but some of his errors were just self-inflicted wounds; Fox play-by-play man Kenny Albert kept blaming the wind on the trajectory of his passes as if he was making excuses for a pee wee player who could barely see over the line of scrimmage. The Eagles managed to cross midfield again one more time, reaching the Dallas 44, but on fourth-and-2, Sudfeld's pass fell incomplete. Same with Jalen Mills (ankle). The challenge will be what Pederson does with the offense in the next two weeks when the playoffs begin with home-field advantage.
