PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles could have made things easy on themselves by winning, as they were expected to, in Minnesota on Sunday. Thankfully, the Cowboys also decided to make things more difficult on themselves by blowing a 26-3 lead to the Packers, and losing as well.
The simple reality is that both teams share the same “win and in” playoff scenarios. If either the Cowboys or Eagles win both of their remaining games, they will win the NFC East.
Here are the possibilities:
Eagles beat the Bears, Cowboys beat Washington
In this case, the winner of the Eagles Cowboys game in week 17 will win the NFC East. Even though the Eagles will come in to the game ahead by one game in the standings, the Cowboys will own the tiebreakers, so a tied record means the Cowboys win the division.
Eagles beat the Bears, Cowboys lose to Washington
