On Saturday, the Dallas Cowboys won against the Philadelphia Eagles to end the regular season. The Cowboys won 51-26 against the Eagles to secure playoff positioning. This was one of their best performances. The Cowboys are now ready to face any challenge that comes their way.
Following Saturday’s win in Philadelphia, Dak Prescott, the quarterback, was asked on the field whether he would like to see a rematch against the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona beat Dallas 25-22 in Week 17. Prescott’s answer was straightforward. Prescott’s response was simple: The Cowboys will play anyone in the playoffs.
“It doesn’t matter,” Prescott said when asked if he wants a Cowboys-Cardinals rematch in the playoffs, via The Athletic’s Jon Machota. “Line ’em up. … Whoever it is, wherever it is, we’re ready for this run.”
The Cowboys came back from a big deficit against the Cardinals Week 17 but fell just short of a comeback. Arizona led 22-7, but the Cowboys regained control with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and a 2-point conversion.
Prescott’s performance was not perfect throughout the season. However, the Cowboys offense also had some inconsistent plays. With the playoffs fast approaching, Prescott is starting to heat up. In two of their three previous games, the Cowboys have scored at most 51 points. Prescott has thrown for 851 yard and 12 touchdowns during that stretch, without single interception. Prescott threw five touchdowns on Saturday night, which is a record for him.
The Cowboys are the fourth seed in the NFC’s playoffs as of Sunday’s slate. The Green Bay Packers are the overall top seed with 13-3. Los Angeles Rams (No. 2) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2. 3) both sit at 12-4. Dallas is currently at 12-5.
The Cowboys are aware that they will be facing one of three NFC wildcard teams in round one of the playoffs. Both Arizona and Philadelphia are guaranteed a playoff spot. The final spot is still up for grabs, with San Francisco and New Orleans hoping to sneak in.
