Final observations: Cowboys 6, Eagles 0

Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence only made it about half a sentence worth of deflecting about his contract before he couldn't help himself on Sunday after a season-ending win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Should the Eagles consider starting Nate Sudfeld instead of Nick Foles in the playoffs?

Third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld, a 6-foot-6, sixth-round pick by Washington previous year who had never taken an National Football League snap, entered for the fifth series and looked impressive in every aspect; strong arm, good reads, nice footwork and solid mechanics. That was also the last time Philadelphia was blanked. If the past two weeks have proved anything, it's that this is not the same team that routinely blew out opponents with Wentz at the helm.

The Eagles finish the regular season at 13-3 - one win shy of a franchise record.

The Eagles and Cowboys are scoreless midway through the second quarter.

See: punter Donnie Jones, who actually forgot to even take off his sweatpants before going out on the field. They'll need significant production out of their ground game. Maybe the offense could have put up points if Torrey Smith doesn't drop a pass on third down on the first drive, but it's hard to say. He was the first player to reach 100 against the Eagles since Washington's Matt Jones ran for 135 yards in Week 6 previous year. He had a particularly bad series on the Cowboys' scoring drive early in the fourth quarter. Defensive end Brandon Graham (ankle), cornerback Jalen Mills (ankle), defensive end Derek Barnett (groin), defensive tackle Tim Jernigan, linebacker Nigel Bradham, safety Rodney McLeod and running back Jay Ajayi, all among the top 12 players on offense or defense, were inactive.

The 28-year-old had a disappointing season, catching just 36 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns.

While the Eagles were playing with backups and third stringers for the majority of the afternoon, they still managed to hold Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott to just one touchdown that didn't come until the fourth quarter. Sudfeld then ran 22 yards on another third down and the crowd roared. The Eagles got their first third-down conversion midway through the third quarter. He pinned the Cowboys inside the 5 with his punt and later placed one at the 1. Foles was hurried and threw an incomplete pass on fourth down.
