How Cowboys can still make playoffs if they lose to Eagles

The Dallas Cowboys will end the regular season on December 29 by hosting the Washington Redskins (3-12).

The Giants have lost 10 of their last 11 meetings against the Eagles, but took them to overtime three weeks ago and are planning to make things hard for them again this time.

The Cowboys can still clinch a playoff spot even though they blew a chance to lock up the NFC East. Rookie Daniel Jones returned to the lineup after missing two games with a high ankle sprain and threw for 352 yards and five touchdowns, both career highs, against Washington. They followed that win up with a 37-27 decision over Washington and then dominated Dallas, 17-9, on Sunday.

Last night, the Dallas Cowboys completed their incredible season-long capitulation by losing to the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 17-9, thus ceding control of the NFC East to their division rivals.

So, while taking care of business at Lincoln Financial Field is obviously the preferred option, Cowboys fans can enjoy some comfort in knowing that a loss on Sunday doesn't guarantee they won't be playing football in January.

As for Dallas, they need to take care of business against the Redskins and pray for an Eagles loss at the Meadowlands at the hands of Danny Dimes, Saquon Barkley, and the New York Giants.

The Giants defeated the Redskins, 41-35, in overtime on Sunday.
