Cowboys Still Alive For NFC East After Eagles Loss

Two weeks ago, the Cowboys' chances of winning the NFC East looked nearly impossible, trailing the Eagles by three games with three to play.

But now, the Cowboys are still alive to win the NFC East after the Eagles' 20-10 loss to the Saints on Sunday in Philly.

The Eagles drop to 13-3, just one game ahead of the Cowboys at 12-4.

That means Dallas must win at Washington next Sunday and the Eagles would have to lose at home again to the Giants, who clinched their own playoff spot on Sunday

If the Cowboys win and the Eagles lose, both teams would be tied at 13-4.

But since both teams split the two games in the regular season, the next tiebreaker would be division record and Dallas would be 5-1, while the Eagles would fall to 3-3.

Still, the Cowboys will have a shot to win the division, something that looked rather bleak two weeks ago after their overtime loss to the Jaguars
