I said five hours ago that whoever won tonight would host a playoff game in January.
While an Eagles loss certainly wouldn’t have resulted in me giving up on the rest of the season, a victory would bury Dallas, unable to recover from 2-6, even with reinforcements in the form of a Pro Bowl quarterback on the way.
Despite two ridiculous pass interference calls late in the contest and some self-inflicted wounds along the way, the Eagles did what they had to do. Their next three opponents are a combined 7-17. It’s a two-team race, and the Giants don’t scare me.
Let’s hit the haiku and enjoy the end of the Cowboys’ season:
Die Greg Hardy Die
Jordan Matthews breathes again
Cowboys coffin closed
