Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles - 12/31/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

01 January, 2018, 02:26 | Author: Lamar Ellis
  • Philadelphia Eagles Nick Foles left hands off to Jay Ajayi during the first half of an NFL football game against the Oakland Raiders Monday Dec. 25 2017 in Philadelphia

Sunday marks the anniversary of the last time Jones played - in the Peach Bowl as a member of the Washington Huskies against Alabama. They wouldn't have been that high on the totem of players pulled back. The unit has avoided injuries for most of the year, with the exception being Hicks.

Jones had "mini-open repair" surgery performed by Dr. Robert Anderson to fix the Achilles - a less invasive procedure that has netted good return rates for National Football League players since it was introduced in 2012.

Five of Philadelphia's defensive starters — LB Nigel Bradham, DE Brandon Graham, DT Tim Jernigan, S Rodney McLeod, CB Jalen Mills — and one regular — DE Derek Barnett — were inactive. Jones, coming off his Achilles injury, needs some experience under his belt, and if he's ready to go, this is a flawless opportunity for him.

However it sucks majorly that both have exited the Week 17 game against Philadelphia. This is a flawless week for them to get some extra rest an avoid a pointless injury before heading into the playoffs. But he has followed up with two poor performances. His replacement, Nate Sudfeld, managed 134 passing yards off an 82.6 completion percentage, but he was also sacked three times. The last thing the Eagles need is for Alshon Jeffrey or Zach Ertz to get hurt heading into the playoffs, not to mention Foles. Foles' elbow may still be bothering him. While Foles and his receivers work together for hopefully just a half or so, I don't believe that Doug Pederson should be using Jay Ajayi or Legarrette Blount in the backfield.

Blast in Russia's Saint Petersburg injures four
Investigators said the device contained 200 grams (7 ounces) of explosives and was rigged with shrapnel to cause more damage. Russian President Vladimir Putin called the explosion at the Perekryostok supermarket on Kondratyevsky Avenue in St.

Pederson cited penalties (they were flagged on back-to-back plays during Foles' final drive of the afternoon) and a key third-down drop from receiver Torrey Smith as contributing factors, and also said weather played a role for the second consecutive week. The Eagles leading rusher was LeGarrette Blount, although he ran for only 37 yards.

Although the Eagles are the top seed in the NFC playoffs, it does not appear as if they will be letting up in the season finale.

That is, of course, a very fine line Pederson is walking. They want to keep their players fresh and ready for the playoffs while at the same time avoiding injury. 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. Just like last season, these two will see their paths intersect at Lincoln Financial Field in "The City of Brotherly Love". Star running back Ezekiel Elliott returned from a six-game suspension and ran for 97 yards, but quarterback Dak Prescott threw two interceptions - one a pick-six - in the game.

With one week left in 2017 NFL season, numerous league's elite team's have already chose to rest their starters for the playoffs.
