Cowboys officially eliminated as Eagles beat Giants, win NFC East

It was all for naught.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys are taking care of their business as they are blowing out Washington. Unfortunately, that was only half the battle. The Philadelphia Eagles have beaten the New York Giants and have won the NFC East. That puts the team from Philadelphia into the playoffs and leaves the Cowboys out in the cold.

The Cowboys had their opportunity last week to win the division but they went up to the City of Brotherly Love and played a horrible game. That’s not the only chance the Cowboys had this year. There were plenty of opportunities for the Cowboys to win the division but when you dump a game against the New York Jets, and then play awful for stretches of the season, you really don’t deserve to win the division or make the playoffs.

Now comes the speculation and then the decision. Will Jerry Jones do the deed quickly and let Jason Garrett know he isn’t coming back? Will Dallas try to hold on to any of their coaches or will they let a new head coach clean house and bring in his own guys?

The Cowboys also need to get things settled with Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper in terms of contracts. The 2019 season is over for Dallas. A very interesting offseason is just getting started.
