Eagles Drop Regular-Season Finale, Finish With 13-3 Record

The Eagles' starting offense was colder.

After Donnie Jones unleashed what may be the punt of the season, dropping a ball out of bounds at the Dallas one-yard line, I was openly pining for a punting competition to replace the rest of the game.

The last time Beasley caught a touchdown pass was during a win over the Kansas City Chiefs back on November 5, when he snared two balls in the end zone.

These two teams have been playing since 1960. Foles' next chance to impress will come in two weeks, when the Eagles hosts an NFC divisional round playoff game. They've earned their home-field advantage for the duration of the NFC playoffs.

Despite having already been eliminated from playoff contention, the Cowboys still finished with a winning record at 9-7. It was 0-0 after 30 minutes.

Eagles P Donnie Jones ran onto the field for a punt with his warmup trousers still on and had to rip them off before the snap. For the first time EVER in this matchup, the game was knotted at 0-0 at halftime.

It was the first scoreless game at halftime in the entire National Football League since December 2011. It put them up 6-0 after the missed extra point. They'll need significant production out of their ground game.

Key stat Foles was 4 for 11 for 39 yards and an interception. Dak Prescott completed 56.7 percent of his passes, but did not have a turnover, finishing with an 85.3 passer rating.

A memorable chapter of Eagles vs. Cowboys this was not. He was the first player to reach 100 against the Eagles since Washington's Matt Jones ran for 135 yards in Week 6 a year ago. Sports talk radio will be fun in Philly for the next two weeks.

Foles' third drive was his most concerning. Foles didn't gain any confidence on Sunday afternoon. He played really well.

Beasley began to become an even more prominent member of the offense in 2015, as he brought down 52 catches for 536 yards while reaching the end zone five times.

Defensive dud Rasul Douglas didn't have a great game. The offense went three-and-out on the first unit's fourth and final series. He did let Ezekiel Elliott get wide on him for a first-down run and later was beaten by Terrence Williams on a sluggo route, but the pass fell incomplete. He looked fast and smooth, but left at the end of the third quarter with cramps. Douglas was beaten on the play.

The Cowboys drove 99 yards for the first score. It was the only score of the game. He pinned the Cowboys inside the 5 with his punt and later placed one at the 1. Then came a short run and a sack.

Injuries Graham (ankle) sat out Sunday's game. Thankfully, everything looks good heading into their playoff bye week.
