A loss next week can’t hurt Dallas now. The Cowboys hold division record tiebreakers over New York and Washington. They have a head-to-head tiebreaker over Philadelphia.
With the fewest wins of the four division champions, Dallas will likely be the fourth seed in the upcoming playoffs. They will host the fifth seed, which currently belongs to the Seattle Seahawks. However, the Eagles and Minnesota Vikings could still move up.
The Cowboys could have clinched the division even with a loss today, had Philadelphia also lost to the Houston Texans. But thankfully, Dallas gets to enjoy this accomplishment off their own victory.
But for now, let’s just congratulate the Dallas Cowboys for being NFC East Champions once again!
