Now just one year later, the script is completely flipped.
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. The degree of difficulty will be high, but maybe Pederson busts out some crazier play calls, maybe the Eagles come up with defensive touchdowns, maybe Foles catches lightning in a bottle and dispels the pessimism sinking in around the city.
Players with any lingering injuries will most likely not play. The Eagles have already clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, and the Cowboys have been mathematically eliminated from the playoff picture. The Cowboys are slight road favourites in this spot as the odds makers are anticipating most of the Philly starters to be taking most of the game off, but either way the Cowboys might be a smart play regardless.

Frankly, it's pretty remarkable that the Eagles played in one of the worst recent football games I can remember against Oakland, and then outdid themselves less than a week later.
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. 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? Nate was drafted out of IN in 2016, but has never played IN an National Football League game. Nonetheless, the journey to becoming a pro for Jones finally culminated in the regular-season finale. Some will think the team rushed him back because the Eagles want to go all out for the Super Bowl this season. Going against the Eagles backups for most of the game should make their day easier, but don't sleep on the Eagles backups on defense.
With one week left in 2017 NFL season, numerous league's elite team's have already made a decision to rest their starters for the playoffs. The rookie will get a chance to get some tackles and break some passes, but that's about it. But, as the Eagles start to pull their starters, expect to see Dallas come back in the second half. The Eagles are 8-1 in their last nine ATS on grass and are 1-4 ATS in their last five against the Cowboys and with this being a meaningless game that trend could continue in Dallas' favour.
