  Winners, losers from Bears’ statement victory over Cowboys on 'TNF' When all was said and done, Dallas laid flat as Chicago won by the score of 31-24 in a game that was not as close as the final score indicated.

Good news: If the Cowboys beat the Eagles in Week 16, they can probably afford to lose their other two games. How many of those put the Cowboys in the playoffs ? Far too many to check by hand. So we built this simulator. Most calculators force you to choose the winners of each remaining game.

Yes, the Eagles still have a chance to make the playoffs , even with another loss.

The Eagles and Cowboys faced off once earlier this year, with Dallas winning 37-10. Thus, the Cowboys are considered to be decent favorites, even with the hoopla surrounding Dak Prescott's shoulder. But what if the Cowboys somehow lose? Is there any chance of them making the playoffs?

Wentz, Eagles keep NFC East hopes alive by beating Redskins

  Wentz, Eagles keep NFC East hopes alive by beating Redskins LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Carson Wentz recovered from a disastrous fumble by leading a 75-yard, go-ahead scoring drive and throwing his third touchdown pass of the day to keep the Philadelphia Eagles' NFC East hopes on track with a 37-27 victory at the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Wentz threw TD passes to running back Miles Sanders, tight end Zach Ertz and receiver Greg Ward and was 30 of 43 for 266 yards. The 4-yard pass from Wentz to Ward with 26 seconds left put Philadelphia up for good and electrified a stadium full of green-clad Eagles fans.

How the Dallas Cowboys Can Still Make the Playoffs . Following Week 10 of the NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys are sitting at 2-7 and riding a seven game losing streak. Most 2-7 teams would start turning their attention towards college prospects as they prepare for one of the top picks in the draft

Both the Cowboys and Seahawks lost winnable games in Week 15, which brings the Eagles within one game of those teams with two to play . This is obviously the most direct way for the Eagles to make the playoffs , but they still need help. If they beat the Texans and Redskins, they will be 9-7.

Of course it's possible. For crying out loud, it's the NFC East.

If the Cowboys lose, they can still earn a playoff berth by beating the Redskins in Week 17. However, they'll have to rely on their rival New York Giants to take care of business against the Eagles. While the G-Men have struggled, they only lost to Philadelphia by only a touchdown the last time they played, so it's possible.

So, while taking care of business at Lincoln Financial Field is obviously the preferred option, Cowboys fans can enjoy some comfort in knowing that a loss on Sunday doesn't guarantee they won't be playing football in January.
