Eagles Drop Concerning Regular Season Finale To Dallas 6-0

Eagles Drop Concerning Regular Season Finale To Dallas 6-0

The quarterback play was horrendous for both teams, with some friskiness in the pocket from Nate Sudfeld the only thing providing any bounce.

With one week left in 2017 NFL season, numerous league's elite team's have already chose to rest their starters for the playoffs. With a 13-2 record, a division title, first round bye and home field advantage all locked up, the Eagles really have nothing to play for except their pride. He had a passer rating of 9.3. Then Donnie Jones drilled a ideal punt that went out inside the Cowboys' 1-yard line.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott, in his second game back from suspension, pounded out 103 rushing yards with another 38 gained receiving. Sudfeld completed 19-for-23 for 136 yards.

The last time these two NFC East rivals met was back in Week 11 when the Eagles exploded in the second half en route to a 37-9 victory to move to 9-1, a game in which they were fueled by another MVP like performance from quarterback Carson Wentz. He also had an interception and was sacked twice.

The Eagles have had one 50-yard rusher in the past two games. Chris Jones, and his counterpart on the Eagles, Donnie Jones, were certainly busy, if nothing else. He was beaten on a 20-yard slant for the touchdown.




These two teams have been playing since 1960. It's because he's coming back from a severe injury and the game against the Dallas Cowboys is his first official National Football League game.

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.

Dallas' offense was anemic despite their first team being matched up with nearly all Philadelphia backups, and the defensive guys deserve credit for that from Jim Schwartz all the way down to the special teams players. They wouldn't have been that high on the totem of players pulled back. They played well on Monday night after a couple of rough games, forcing five turnovers and have excelled over the course of the whole season.

The only thing left at that point was whether or not the defense could pitch the shutout. On the other hand against the Raiders, the Eagles managed just 12 first downs, one 40-yard receiver, and targeting Alshon Jeffery twice. Instead, they wound up 13-3 and were shut out for the first time since the regular-season finale on January 3, 2010, a 24-0 loss at Dallas. 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. The road to Minnesota for the NFC goes through Broad and Pattison now, which means that the Eagles can rest their starters for Sunday's meaningless regular-season finale against the Dallas Cowboys, who were eliminated from playoff contention last week.
