Felix Jones’ status may depend on Giants result

We’ve told you previously that the importance of the Cowboys-Eagles game rests largely with what happens between the Jets and Giants at 1 p.m. ET.

If the Giants win early, the Cowboys and Eagles both have much less to play for. Dallas may approach the game accordingly.

Matt Mosley of Fox Sports Southwest reports that Felix Jones won’t play a snap if the Giants win early. If the Giants lose, Jones is “50-50” to play.

Jones didn’t practice during the week, but he’s listed as questionable. Sammy Morris will get the call otherwise.

    i can understand not playing jones, but as for the rest of the team, they should be playing this game all out no matter what the giants do. players get hurt when they play not to win…..i think thats a bad way to approach a game, especially this late in the season when the boys are very close to making the playoffs.

    Is there any chance both NY teams can lose? Now that would be a real Christmas gift…that city of idiots watching the playoffs, crying, doing drugs, getting government handouts…

    The Cowboys are soft.

    So what is his status when the NY game ends in a tie?

    Losing D. Murray was a huge loss , Felix is important but to win this game the D has got to play better, it’s time they make a stop in a critical situation.

    Truthfully they should want to play all out because they can make the playoffs in wildcard position if they beat the birds and lose to NJ.

    Wow, bonehead coaching before the game starts guess these ARENT must win games this time of year in big d. the objective is to win every time regardless this is why teams shouldn’t worry about other teams. Damn lack of focus.

    I guess they are softly leading the division then.

    “Truthfully they should want to play all out because they can make the playoffs in wildcard position if they beat the birds and lose to NJ.”

    Not without a lot of help.

    This game is HUGE for Dallas!

    Show up..don’t show up. So big D can decide now? I thought that was just what they did anyways?? How is this different then any other game this year.

    Either way they better pull up their big boy pants. The birds are showing up. If the G men lose, the iggles are coming to spank that a–.

    They still win the game. Just can”t trust The Birds,even though i want to,sigh……………

    You play…to win…the game!

    Seriously though, if NYG lose Dallas could wrap up the division today. I’d much rather take my chances winning a home game against a team with a losing record than trying to win a road game with everything on the line next week. If Dallas goes to NYG needing a win, I’d put the odds at 44-6 that they lose.

    Get sick of hearing these teams and players winging it. “We’ll play this guy or that guy if this happens” Or “We’re gonna rest our guys the last game to keep them from getting hurt” Just nasty theology. It’s one thing if someone us hurt as opposed to just avoiding injury

    “If Dallas goes to NYG needing a win, I’d put the odds at 44-6 that they lose.”

    I’d put the odds at 24-0 than they win.
