17 weeks of the 2021-2022 NFL season and nine wins by the Philadelphia Eagles in 16 games have led us all to this. It’s time for Week 18 in the National Football League. The Birds and Dallas Cowboys link up for the 126th time on January’s first Saturday at 8:15 p.m. EST.

How could you ask for more? There are a couple of twists in this one though.

If you had any inclination that, by the time we reached Week 18, that both the Eagles and Cowboys would be guaranteed a playoff spot and their regular-season finale would, as a result, fall under the category of meaningless, give yourselves a gold star.

Here’s what’s funny. The biggest story coming out of this one is this. It’s the Eagles that may rest their starters to gear up for the playoffs while the Cowboys feel as though the best option is for them to play theirs.

It was hard to see that coming a month ago, but then again, no one should be surprised if Philadelphia’s starters give it a go on this one. Heck, it isn’t like they’re firing on all cylinders.

Here are the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys Week 18 inactives.

Seven Eagles appeared on Philadelphia’s Week 18 status report on Thursday. Quarterback Jalen Hurts (ankle), center/guard hybrid Jack Anderson (illness), linebacker Shaun Bradley (stinger), and wide receiver Quez Watkins (knee) were all full participants at practice on Thursday.

Offensive lineman Landon Dickerson (thumb), right tackle Lane Johnson (rest/knee), and running back Miles Sanders (hand) didn’t participate. Sanders is out for Saturday night. Dickerson and Johnson are both questionable.

Take a look:

Three players appeared on the Cowboys injury report on Wednesday: running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee), safety Jayron Kearse (hamstring), and running back Tony Pollard (foot). Elliott was a full participant at practice on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday however.

Pollard and Kearse were both limited on all three days and are questionable for the game. Cornerback Trevon Diggs and safety Donovan Wilson are also questionable. Diggs didn’t participate in Thursday’s practice session.
