Heading into week 17 the Dallas Cowboys still have a chance to make it into the playoffs.

The Dallas Cowboys have just wrapped up a win against the rival Philadelphia Eagles, bringing them to 6-9 on the season. They got just hot enough at exactly the right time to be in this position.

For the Cowboys to make the playoffs, they must:

1. Beat the rival New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

2. They have to cross their fingers that the Washington Football Team loses to the Philadelphia Eagles.

That’s the only path that Dallas has to reaching the postseason.

The Cowboys suffered early in the season after losing quarterback Dak Prescott, then losing Andy Dalton for a few games.

But Dalton came through in the end helping them win some clutch games against the Vikings and the Eagles.

As of right now, the:

  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • New Orleans Saints
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Buffalo Bills
  • Green Bay Packers
  • Seattle Seahawks

Have all clinched playoff spots, with the Chiefs clinching a first round bye for the AFC.
