However, if the Jets beat the Giants, the Cowboys and their home fans will be informed that a win that day will clinch the NFC East and a playoff home game.  So just before kickoff or shortly after you will here the fans getting wild and the team will get a huge boost of new energy and purpose.  Now they are thinking revenge, playoffs, and a rest starters week against Giants.  

Just wanted everyone to know this game will take on a whole new meaning just at kickoff time, and the players will have a strong reaction that could effect the outcome greatly.  Good luck to all.  As for me, love my Cowboys, but only way I see them matching the Eagles intensity for 4 quarters is if Eagles are already eliminated and they hang their heads in the 2nd half.  Taking the Eagles in a tease with the OVER. 

Doesn't really matter dude, Cowgirls get their behind kicked either way. . .

"For the Eagles to repeat as East champions, they must beat the Cowboys and Washington at home on Jan. 1. They need the Giants to lose to the Jets and then beat Dallas in their last game."

OK, so the Giants win and Philly is out. Would they play pissed off, as spoilers? Would they be loose and wild with nothing to lose?
These narrative picks can go either way. But I think it helps the Boys.

How is the Eagles season over if the Giants win??? The Cowgirls drop these next two and the Eagles win the next two guess what??? Unless your saying there will not be a wild card out of the NFC east. But the result of that has nothing to do with the Giants game???

Pretty avatar!

What it means: A couple of things. First, it means next Sunday's game between the Giants and the Dallas will decide the NFC East. The winner advances to the playoffs as division champ. The Cowboys could theoretically still make it as a wild card if they beat the Eagles this afternoon, but the Giants' only way in is to win the game and the division. This Giants win also means that the Philadelphia are, at long last, eliminated from contention for this year's postseason.
