ARLINGTON, Texas – With a win tonight against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys would be the No. 3 seed in the NFC playoffs and would play the New Orleans Saints at AT&T Stadium next weekend.

With Green Bay defeating Chicago 33-28 on a long Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass in the final minute, the Packers won the NFC North with an 8-7-1 record.

Even though the Cowboys lost to the Packers two weeks ago, their 9-7 record would be better than Green Bay’s record.

If the Cowboys win and play the Saints it would be a rematch of the teams' Nov. 10 meeting at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which New Orleans won 49-17.

San Francisco’s last-second win at Arizona pushed the Saints to the No. 6 seed in the NFC.
