As for the Philadelphia Eagles, they are already in the playoffs. They also won the NFC East, clinched a first-round bye, and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.
For the traveling Dallas Cowboys, Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones went on sports radio 105.3 the Fan and said that they are basically treating this game as a preseason game. starters and backups will get an opportunity to show what they have to offer to the team. Dallas is heading into this game with an 8-7 record and locked in the 2nd spot in the NFC East standings. The only thing they can improve on is their position in the draft.
In Philly, Eagles fans wings were clipped when quarterback Carson Wintz went down with a season injury, fans dreams for a Super Bowl were turning into a nightmare. Luckily, they have veteran quarterback Nick Foles. When he started in week 15 against the Giants, he led the team to a victory. Then in week 16, he struggled and turned the ball over multiple times leaving fans on the edge of their seats.
