Dallas Cowboys (7-7) at Philadelphia Eagles (7-7)

  • Time: 4:25 p.m. CT, Sunday
  • Line: Cowboys by 2 points
  • Playoff Position: Dallas – 4th, Philadelphia – 8th

For these two teams, the only way into the playoffs is by winning the NFC East and this game will go a long way in determining who comes out on top.

Dallas was left for dead after being blitzed by Buffalo and Chicago in consecutive weeks but showed more than signs of life by dismantling the Los Angeles Rams at home in Week 15. Meanwhile, the Eagles got a fight from the Washington Redskins and needed a late scoop-and-score to make the game look closer than it really was.

With Philadelphia’s non-existent secondary leading the way, this should bode well for the Cowboys offense including Dak Prescott and his top target Amari Cooper. While neither of these teams really deserves a home playoff game, someone is going to receive that honor and if the Minnesota Vikings can leapfrog into the fifth seed, this game will definitely be of everyone’s interest.
