Philadelphia Eagles: The importance of week 17

The Eagles secured home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs after defeating the Raiders. The Cowboys were eliminated from the playoff race after losing to the Seattle Seahawks Philadelphia Eagles: The importance of week 17
Andrew Cummings | 01 January, 2018, 01:44

If that's not a marvelous regular season, then I don't know what is. It would also not be a surprise to see Jalen Mills have a limited role as he still deals with a lingering ankle injury. Douglas has played very well so far this season and should get a lot of playing time regardless. Jones' Achilles injury forced him to watch from the sidelines, and some believe that might prove to be a blessing in disguise. Defensively, the Eagles are a sound unit and after a questionable few games, shut the Oakland Raiders completely down.

The Eagles should start fast in the first half, as their starters are more talented than what Dallas has to offer. He needs to continue to get Nick Foles reps with the first-team offense, but at the same time not risk injuries to any significant players heading into the postseason. Sudfeld completed 19-for-23 for 136 yards. He followed poor throws to his receivers with taking big sacks and the Eagles were consistently punting from near their own end zone. Foles' elbow may still be bothering him. Foles finished 4-of-11 for 39 yards (3.5 yards per attempt) with an interception as the Eagles were shut out 6-0 by the Cowboys.

The Philadelphia Eagles secured home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but they don't seem to cause fear in potential opponents following a lackluster win in Week 16.

EPL: Conte reveals Chelsea's target this season
Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland has said his team must play with more discipline as they attempt to find a rare clean sheet. The Premier League champions now sit 14 points behind unbeaten leaders Manchester City , who also have a game in hand.

That is, of course, a very fine line Pederson is walking.

The most important thing will be to have a healthy team in two weeks for the divisional round, but if the Eagles can have a good offensive showing on Sunday without anyone getting injured to gain confidence, then that will be an added bonus. It's discouraging to think that such a target was so misused in any game much less one in which the Eagles are still trying to figure out timing and comfortable routes in advance of the playoffs. Defensively, the Eagles should just rest everyone, as now that Foles is the quarterback, they are the unit that the Eagles are going to have to rely on heavily in the playoffs. That was on display once again Sunday, as Jim Schwartz's unit limited Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys' attack to six points despite resting a bulk of the Eagles' starters.
