The scorching Dallas Cowboys finally hit a wall last Sunday against the Cardinals, who resurrected their final leg of the season with a 25-22 victory over Dallas. The Cowboys had won four in a row and it looked like they could at least play a few home games in the playoffs, but the loss left them in fourth place in the NFC at 11-5. While it is a success, it in no way devastates the Cowboys, who have actually been better on the road this season than at home.
Their Week 18 showdown is the Philadelphia Eagles, who are coming off securing a playoff spot behind Jalen Hurts. Hurts has been excellent since a brutal three-interception performance against the Giants, leading the Eagles to three wins on a four-game win streak (Gardner Minshew got the other win when Hurts was injured). The excitement around the young quarterback has reached a fever pitch, with fans smashing a railing at FedEx Field as they clamored to congratulate him on the Eagles’ most recent win over Washington Football Team in an effort to secure the playoffs.
The Eagles are locked in at six or seven, while the Saints and 49ers will play for last place in the conference. As of now, the Eagles are seventh in the NFC, with the same record as the 49ers. If the 49ers lose and the Saints enter with a win over the Falcons, the Eagles would be No. 6, probably putting them against the Buccaneers rather than the Rams in this scenario. It’s an out-of-the-skillet situation, but it’s clearly not a meaningless week for the Eagles.
For the Cowboys, the move will be difficult. If the Rams win, they will be locked in at No. 4 with a rematch against the Cardinals. The Cowboys can move up with a 49ers win over the Rams, a Seahawks win over the Cardinals and a win over the Eagles. If the same scenario occurs with the Panthers beating the Saints, the Cowboys can go up to No. 2. But basically, they’re almost stuck at No. 4 without help. These teams met for the first time in Week 3, with the Cowboys dominating 41-21. That wasn’t the Eagles team we’re seeing on the field right now, so we’ll see how these teams pair up now that the Eagles have become the run-first team that they should be under Hurts.
