Week 14 Studs and Duds: Eagles lose in OT

And that's all folks. 

Barring some sort of miracle, the Eagles playoff hopes were killed on Sunday thanks to a 29-23 overtime loss at the Cowboys. The Eagles, despite allowing nearly 600 yards of offense, fought and battled and almost won the game. But almost only counts in horsehoes and hand grenades. 

STUDS

3. Rasul Douglas

I know he was the defender on the game-losing touchdown catch by Amari Cooper, but Douglas read the play perfectly and deflected the pass. Just an unlucky bounce. Overall, Douglas had nine total tackles and one tackle for a loss. 

2. Darren Sproles

He didn't get a ton of opportunities, but Sproles caught all three of his targets for 34 yards and the game-tying score late in the fourth. Sproles never quit on the season.

Seven tackles, five QB hits, four tackles for a loss, one and a half sacks, and a forced fumble. Are you kidding me?!

 

DUDS

3. Golden Tate

After his coming out party vs. the Redskins, Tate had just three targets and caught just one ball. Yikes. 

2. De'Vante Bausby

Maybe it's not his fault, but I'm just not sure the 25-year-old undrafted corner is capable of playing significant NFL snaps. Amari Cooper caught 10 balls for 217 yards and three touchdowns and Dak Prescott threw for 455 yards, so you knew there would be at least a couple of corners on the dud list. 

1. Sidney Jones

Let's just hope that Jones is hurt and isn't himself, because he hasn't been good at all this season. Jones was consistently beat by Cooper in the fourth quarter.
