The Cowboys currently still have a head-to-head tie-breaker over the Eagles, of course, since Dallas beat Philly back in Week 7. But there’s still time for that to change since these two division rivals will face off again in Week 16. A look at their remaining schedules:
EAGLES’ LAST FIVE GAMES
Week 13 - at Miami Dolphins (2-9)
Week 14 - vs. New York Giants (2-9)
Week 15 - at Washington (2-9)
Week 16 - vs. Dallas Cowboys (6-6)
Week 17 - at New York Giants (2-9)
COWBOYS’ LAST FOUR GAMES
The Eagles were already in position to clinch the NFC East by winning the remainder of their games. The Cowboys’ loss to the Bills gives Philly a little more margin for error, though. The Eagles can gain even more if Dallas drops another game (or two).
As it’s been said for some time now, the division will likely be settled when the Eagles host the Cowboys later this season. It’s hard to feel amazing about the Birds given how offensively inept they’ve looked lately but maybe they can turn things around and actually make a run.
Here’s hoping, anyway.
Which team will win the NFC East?
