The Eagles clinched a playoff spot with the Vikings’ loss on Sunday night and that means head coach Nick Sirianni’s Monday press conference opened up with a question about whether the team will play their starters against the Cowboys in Week 18.

Sirianni said that the team is still working its way to a decision and “taking everything into account” when it comes to the benefits of resting players as opposed to staying sharp by playing in the final game of the regular season.

“We’re talking through all that still. We haven’t decided anything there yet. We don’t have to decide right now,” Sirianni said.  

The Eagles will have a shorter week than usual with the NFL deciding to move their game to Saturday night and that will likely factor into the team’s thinking along with the fact that they are likely to face the Buccaneers regardless of the outcome of their game against Dallas.

  1. Rest then or not they will get bounce whoever they play because hurts it’s not a good quarterback

  2. How bout we rest the quarterback back the rest of the year and actually have a chance to win a game or two.

  3. At this point in the season, just about everyone on the roster could use the rest. I say rest all we can and get Minshew and his ‘stache under center!

    The worst team to makes the playoffs would be the following:
    2020: WFT at 7-9
    2014: Panthers at 7-8-1
    2010: Seahawks at 7-9

    Philadelphia has always had a winning record when making the playoffs unlike your team. Hugs and kisses to you!
