FRISCO - Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy this week talked about in a media briefing here internal The Star, “We’re fighting for a division title Sunday evening. What else may perchance perchance you query for? This is what it’s all about.”
It can perchance also be that straightforward.
Or it may perchance well probably perchance also be some distance more advanced.
This is the easy section: As we come the cease of the 2021 NFL season, Dallas is one 5 teams with a risk to clinch a postseason berth on this Week 16.
And it's moral firm: With wins this weekend, the Buccaneers, Cardinals, Chiefs and Rams can (we agree with!) extinguish the identical.
To boot to a playoff characteristic locked up, Dallas and Tampa Bay would moreover claim their division titles.
Each of these teams are 10-4 and are clearly browsing for their 11th set aside of the season, which within the NFC is at this time the same old-bearing amount, as Inexperienced Bay enters the weekend with the coveted No. 1 seed and a 11-3 trace. (The Packers accumulate already captured their division crown.)
Also within the NFC, the Cowboys and the Bucs set aside three-sport leads in their respective divisions, whereas the Cardinals and the Rams are tied atop the NFC West.
Nonetheless having talked about all of that, Dallas (bolstered by its 5 Pro Bowlers) doesn't need to beat Washington at dwelling on Sunday evening to set aside the NFC East.

Tampa Bay - which on paper has the highest odds to clinch this weekend with a matchup against the 5-9 Panthers - is a team Dallas (at this time the No. 2 seed within the NFC) has lost to, so the head-to-head ingredient is detestable data there. Nonetheless Arizona - which is challenging to play Indianapolis this weekend - has to play at Dallas in Week 17.
So the Cowboys win no longer need to sit down and wait. They would perchance also be amongst the first teams to clinch in Week 16 ... and within the parity-infected NFL, they are on the very quick list of teams that can.
