Dallas Cowboys Wishlist at Philadelphia Eagles

They've earned their home-field advantage for the duration of the NFC playoffs.

Those who did attend probably weren't too happy.

But Sunday's regular-season finale against Dallas affords Jones an opportunity to play in a game that lacks typical significance to find his NFL.

Coach Doug Pederson acknowledged the fact that Jones hasn't been exposed to the physicality of the sport in a long time "is a little bit of a concern", but said he is doing well healthwise. "I have confidence in our guys".

It's Sudfeld time While Pederson stressed most of the starters will play, the coach also acknowledged Nate Sudfeld will replace Foles at quarterback at some point during the contest. But they didn't show much when they were playing.

On the one hand against the Giants, Foles spread the ball evenly as per the Philadelphia way this season, putting five targets over 40 yards and dishing out a touchdown pass to three different receivers. "There are ways to make it count that way", said Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith.

Liberians hail Weah's presidential victory
President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday congratulated George Weah on his election as the next President of the Republic of Liberia. Buhari described Weah's victory as an affirmation of the will of the Liberian people to remain united, peaceful and prosperous.

Foles said he remains confident.

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. "We have the guys to do it, so I'm not anxious".

Foles underthrew Alshon Jeffery and was picked by Chidobe Awuzie at the Cowboys 48 on Philadelphia's third possession. But the drive stalled at the Cowboys' 39-yard line.

"I think that's foolish on my part". They'll have two weeks to work on a slumping offense before hosting a playoff game on January 13 or 14. The Eagles, at 13-2, have already clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC. After a bye in the first round next weekend, they will host a divisional round game on Saturday, Jan. 13 or Sunday, Jan. 14. The Eagles' title chances suffered a huge blow when quarterback Carson Wentz went down for the year. But he struggled in a 19-10 loss to Oakland last week and was inconsistent again against the Cowboys, making several poorly thrown passes. Just like last season, these two will see their paths intersect at Lincoln Financial Field in "The City of Brotherly Love".

Both Jones, aside from trying to tackle Ezekiel Elliott on a 16-yard run in the second quarter, and Sudfeld actually played well. 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. Wouldn't it be a good idea to play the offensive starters and get the offense in the best shape possible heading into the playoffs?

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.
