Dallas Cowboys playoff scenarios: They can still make postseason

Jason Garrett

The Dallas Cowboys may have lost on Sunday night to the Philadelphia Eagles, but their season is not over yet.

The Cowboys can still clinch a playoff spot even though they blew a chance to lock up the NFC East. Here is their simple playoff scenario:

– Cowboys must beat the Redskins at home in Week 17
– Eagles must lose at the New York Giants in Week 17

If the Cowboys win and the Eagles lose, both would have 8-8 records. They have split their head-to-head matchups, making their division records the next tiebreaker. In this scenario, the Eagles would have two division losses (4-2) and the Cowboys would only have one and be 5-1 against the NFC East.

With Dak Prescott trying to play through a shoulder injury, Dallas isn’t even assured of beating Washington at home. But if the Giants play as well as they did on Sunday, they could upset Philly.
