The Philadelphia Eagles left the door open for the Dallas Cowboys to steal the top seed in the NFC for the playoffs.
The Dallas Cowboys still have a chance to win the NFC East and earn the top seed in the NFC.
What if it actually does happen? (This is the Cowboys Playoff image.) It won’t have anything “ugly” about it.
The “quality of play” displayed by coach Mike McCarthy’s club, particularly in games against the Indianapolis Colts, New York Giants, Houston Texans, and finally against a Tennessee Titans team that rested starters, has angered many in Cowboys Nation. However, four of those victories have since shown to be rather beneficial.
But despite all the complaining, it is those “ugly” victories that have put the Cowboys in the previously unthinkable position of passing the Eagles.
The Cowboys are not just “playing for something” in Week 18 — they are also compelling the Eagles, losers of two consecutive games, to do the same. However, this is still a long shot since so many things need to go the Cowboys’ way.
The only team to receive a first-round bye is the top seed. It would be the ideal time given how damaged Dallas now is.
As Eagles fans learned today while bemoaning a lacklustre performance against the Saints, the ugly victories over the supposedly “lesser” opposition are nonetheless victories and far superior to any kind of losses.
Dallas, which is on track to make the playoffs, will still need to win its game against the Washington Commanders next week and hope the Eagles fall once more at home against the Giants, who are also on track to make the playoffs.
However, the Eagles now have a new task on their hands as a result of their defeat to the Saints.
In order to stop the bleeding, Philadelphia might now be forced to bring back an injured Jalen Hurts right away. Self-doubt can start to seep in. The “must-win” situation might vary.
Therefore, for all the Cowboys supporters who are saying things like, “Dak Prescott sucks!” and “We aren’t a playoff team” because of the shaky performances against inferior opponents, realise that it was those victories that propelled you to the brink.
one match. numerous marbles Take no rest. That is what the focus of Week 18 is. What if the Cowboys defeated the Commanders “ugly” and the Giants defeated the Eagles “ugly”?
