The Cowboys need to win and get a lot of help this weekend. They got most of what they asked for.
"Part of the reason Cowboys fans wanted Philadelphia to win on Sunday night was because it is in their best interest to have the Rams win the NFC West. If L.A. is in a Wildcard position with them, the Rams have the head-to-head tiebreaker virtue of beating them.
Additionally, Cowboys fans were rooting hard for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Lambeau Field on Sunday. This is all because the Packers are about to get Aaron Rodgers back (he can help the Cowboys too FWIW), but we need them to stay a game behind Dallas due to them also having the tiebreaker."
