The Eagles will wrap up the 2016 regular season today as they take on the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles look to finish the season at 7-9 on the season in a game that has very little meaning for the team. Earlier in the season, the Cowboys edged the Eagles in overtime at AT&T Stadium, 29-23.

After Dak Prescott’s worst performance of the season in the Cowboys’ Week 14 loss to the Giants, some talked emerged about whether he could potentially be benched in favor of Tony Romo if he continued to post passer ratings around 45.4 and throw more interceptions than touchdown passes. Three weeks later, Prescott may actually sit for at least part of the Eagles-Cowboys game on Sunday — but only because of how well he’s playing.

“You can expect Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Dez Bryant and those offensive guys to start, but I don’t see them playing the entire game,” Dallas Morning News Cowboys beat reporter Jon Machota told Birds 24/7. “Some of them will be pulled after maybe a half; perhaps Dak goes into the third quarter a bit. Once Dak is pulled out, I think you’ll see Mark Sanchez and not Tony Romo. That first-team offensive line will play as long as Dak is out there, and I think they’ll be subbing those guys out once Dak is pulled.” Read more »
