The NFC East will be officially over if the Cowboys lose to the Washington Redskins tonight on Thursday Night Football. The only way the Eagles can still miss the 2018 NFL playoffs is if they lose out and Dallas wins out. That’s clearly very unlikely to happen.
Winning the division is hardly the ultimate goal for this Eagles team. Philly is still looking to maintain the lead for the No. 1 seed in the NFC with the Minnesota Vikings only one game behind them.
But clinching the division is still a noteworthy moment for the Eagles. They haven’t won the NFC East crown since Chip Kelly’s first season with Philadelphia in 2013. And how many teams can say they clinched the division in the month of November?
So here’s to a Cowboys loss on Thursday night.
Dallas opened this game as 2.5 point favorites. The line has since shifted to make the Cowboys two-point underdogs at home. Looks like a lot of people are betting on Washington to win this game.
It’s no surprise as to why. The Cowboys have flat out sucked without Ezekiel Elliott in the lineup. Dak Prescott has been historically incompetent.
Cowboy fans may not want to hear this..OK, they DONT want to hear this. But Dak first QB in 10 yrs, 0 TD passes and 8 turnovers in 3 gm span— Babe Laufenberg (@BabeLaufenberg) November 30, 2017
Cowboys have scored fewer than 10 points in 3 straight games for the first time in franchise history.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) November 29, 2017
Last 2 teams to do that?
'09 Browns w/Brady Quinn
'09 Raiders w/Jamarcus Russell@NFLResearch
Even if the Cowboys can somehow beat Washington, the Eagles will still clinch the NFC East if they defeat the Seahawks in Seattle this week.
It’s only a matter of time.
