Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles - 12/31/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

"I feel great and I know what I can do", Foles said.

However, one thing that Dallas can do is take a close look at some of their younger players. With the No. 1 seed in the playoffs locked up, Foles and numerous offensive starters were pulled after one quarter of play to avoid injury. Thankfully, everything looks good heading into their playoff bye week.

These two teams have been playing since 1960. They are still trying to find their footing with a new quarterback. "We can do special stuff". That's how good it was, and how bad the offense was at the same time.

"I'm not concerned about the offense", coach Doug Pederson said.

But there were sweatpants on the field, so we've got that going for us. Everything was lined up for them to do damage in the postseason, with a unique blend of veterans and young talent on hand between the roster and the coaching staff. They can go undefeated at home for the first time since 1992.

Foles should play well to give the Eagles a lead in the first half, but Dallas will come back and win it against the reserves in the second half.

You just never know, and even if those things don't happen, it's worth appreciating this team vastly overachieving what most thought they were capable of.

Despite the recent slide offensively, the Eagles finished the regular season 13-3 and hold the top seed in the conference. Now it's time to take advantage of it. Who wouldn't get a kick out of that?

A touch of magic, Wilson laughs off controversial equaliser
Arnautovic said : "It can't be a goal for Bournemouth and it has to be a red card for Bournemouth , but that is football". A brace from in-form striker Marko Arnautovic gave the Hammers a 3-2 lead and seemed to put them on course for victory.

Sunday marks the anniversary of the last time Jones played - in the Peach Bowl as a member of the Washington Huskies against Alabama. Foles was hurried and threw an incomplete pass on fourth down.

In spite of Foles's very lackluster performance, Pederson was impressed with his quarterback's resilience at overcoming his mistakes and finally putting his team in position to win late in the ball game. This is a ideal week for them to get some extra rest an avoid a pointless injury before heading into the playoffs.

Almost everything about this football game was bad, and no poetic waxing about defense will erase how bad it was as a whole. They want to keep their players fresh and ready for the playoffs while at the same time avoiding injury.

Plus, if the goal is to get the offense some additional reps with Nick Foles under center, would you want him standing in the pocket behind anything less than the best five offensive linemen? He wasn't targeted a whole lot and made some nice plays as a tackler, but he fell victim to the same double moves other Eagles have been torched on in recent weeks. That being said, the Eagles did not play well, at least on the offensive side of the ball last Monday night against the Oakland Raiders.

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.

Of course, when you're praising punters, it's a clear sign that the game was not a particularly exciting one.

There are going to be fans, analysts, and talk show hosts alike who make the case for Sudfeld to play over Foles.
