Notes on Nick: Foles struggles mightily against Cowboys

01 January, 2018, 01:41 | Author: Phil Peters

By activating Jones, the Eagles ensure the rookie will be able to practice with the team throughout their playoff run and add depth at cornerback.

Now just one year later, the script is completely flipped. The Cowboys were in this spot against the Eagles a year ago and Dak Prescott and the rest of the offense played a series before things were eventually turned over to Mark Sanchez.

Theres always a fine line for coaches of teams that have top playoff spots locked up this time of year. Then came the waves of hope in that Nick Foles holds records for the best passing game of all time and has been a serviceable starter in the league for a few seasons.

Barnett has been dealing with a groin injury, while Jernigan has had a lingering ankle injury for a good portion of the season.

In the secondary, Jalen Mills is questionable for Sunday and Ronald Darby already missed a big portion of the season with a non-contact injury. They want to keep their players fresh and ready for the playoffs while at the same time avoiding injury. But with or without Elliot, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has really struggled in his second season.

Philadelphia and its fan are caught in limbo between the week 15 performance against the Giants and the Raiders Eagles game this past Sunday in what was one of the worst football games I've ever had the misfortune of watching.

There has to be some concern on how terrible the Eagles offense looked again led by Nick Foles.

Sidney Jones won't play the majority of the snaps. The Eagles are going to rely on their ground game and the defense, but at least they know the road to the conference championship runs through Lincoln Financial Field. 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. That said, they will need Foles to get as comfortable as possible with the offense if Philadelphia is to stand a chance. But, as the Eagles start to pull their starters, expect to see Dallas come back in the second half.

A federal appeals court has set a Thursday hearing as attorneys for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott seek a longer-lasting injunction to stop his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations. The outcome of this game is meaningless, but coming away with no major injuries will be the real victory on Sunday.
