Philadelphia Eagles: 5 players to watch against the Dallas Cowboys
The Philadelphia Eagles will be playing for nothing this Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
Normally when the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys meet, there is a lot to play for. While the rivalry still continues, this Week 17 matchup isn’t very important. Similar to last season, the Eagles versus Cowboys in Philadelphia is just another meaningless game at the end of the season. Except for this time around the tables have turned. The Eagles are heading to the playoffs while the Cowboys are packing it up after this week.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was left with some tough decisions to make this week. He was undecided on whether or not he should give his starters some playing time. Normally when a team is locked into the first seed, the starters would get the week off. But with the playoffs now two weeks away, Pederson has concerns about what kind of shape the players will be in when they finally play again.
Regardless of how long the starters play, some young guys will definitely be getting some reps this Sunday. Similar to a preseason game, this week can allow some of the guys who are lower on the depth chart showcase some of their unknown talents against a first-team Cowboys defense. Let’s take a look at some players to look out for in Sunday’s game.
