NFC overreactions: Washington tumble and Cowboys rumble set up NFC East drama
SportsPulse: The NFC East will go down to the final week of the season as well as every wild card spot in the NFC. Mackenzie Salmon reacts to the biggest storylines in the NFC from Week 16.
With its playoff picture largely crystallized, the NFL announced its Week 17 broadcast schedule Sunday night.
The capstone game probably wasn’t what the league envisioned, but the matchup of the Washington Football Team (6-9) and Philadelphia Eagles (4-10-1) will still decide the NFC East title even though Philly has already been eliminated from playoff contention. A WFT victory gives D.C. its first division championship since 2015.
The Dallas Cowboys (6-9) will visit the New York Giants (5-10) for a 1 p.m. ET kickoff next Sunday. If the Cowboys win, they capture the division if Washington loses to the Eagles. If the Cowboys and WFT both lose, the Giants advance to the playoffs.
