Cowboys beat playoff-bound Eagles 6-0

Though the Eagles already own home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, they had a chance at their first 14-win regular season in franchise history.

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. Even if Jones emerges from today's game perfectly healthy, how much does he play in two weeks? "You know we are going to play a lot better teams in the playoffs and we have to play a lot better football".

Third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld, a 6-foot-6, sixth-round pick by Washington past year who had never taken an National Football League snap, entered for the fifth series and looked impressive in every aspect; strong arm, good reads, nice footwork and solid mechanics.

The Philadelphia Eagles plan to activate rookie cornerback Sidney Jones from the football/non-injury list Saturday in front of their regular-season finale against the Dallas Cowboys, it was announced Saturday.

Winter Weather Advisory for Saturday

Penn State wins Fiesta Bowl
Washington quarterback Jake Browning, making his final start as the Huskies' QB, was 18-28 for 175 yards and a touchdown. In the second quarter, with Penn State up 21-7 over Washington, everyone got the final highlight they were waiting for.

Donald Trump's Global Warming Tweet Shows How Little President Understands Science
In 2015, he wrote: "It's really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal". Trump has tweeted similar, almost verbatim thoughts about his climate/weather confusion before.

"I'm sad the season is over", Ezekiel Elliott said. "I know who I am as a player, and I also know that throughout my career and my life I haven't always played great games, I've been in games where execution hasn't always gone like we wanted to, and the key is you remain confident because you know who you are, you know you're going to prepare every day to do everything to the best of your ability. But I've still got a lot of confidence in the guys". While Foles and his receivers work together for hopefully just a half or so, I don't believe that Doug Pederson should be using Jay Ajayi or Legarrette Blount in the backfield. That capped a 99-yard touchdown drive.

However it sucks majorly that both have exited the Week 17 game against Philadelphia. The outcome of the game means nothing to either team, and yet it might be one of the most important games the Eagles play all year. But with or without Elliot, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has really struggled in his second season. Sudfeld then ran 22 yards on another third down and the crowd roared. This is the first time the Eagles have been shut out at home since 2005, and thankfully, it came in a game that does not matter. Maybe the offense could have put up points if Torrey Smith doesn't drop a pass on third down on the first drive, but it's hard to say.

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. Following an Achilles injury suffered during Washington's Pro Day, Jones tumbled down the draft boards. He pinned the Cowboys inside the 5 with his punt and later placed one at the 1. The fourth-down pass fell incomplete. It was the first time in a Cowboys-Eagles game since the series began in 1960.
