The NFL Super Wild Card Weekend concluded Monday night following the Cowboys win over the Buccaneers, meaning three of the four NFC East teams who dominated this season have made it to the Divisional Round, a complete flip-flop of last season. Now, the Cowboys will face the No. 2 seed San Francisco 49ers and the Eagles and Giants will face off. The Commanders? They have some early offseason business of their own.
Eagles vs Giants: May the Best Man Win
With the Eagles taking their much needed bye week, they will end up facing the New York Giants on Saturday night. The Eagles dominated much of this season, including two wins against their upcoming opponent. The Giants are not to be overlooked yet as they beat the third seed Minnesota Vikings, 31-24. The Vikings had their share of struggles all season, but still put up 24 points against the Giants.
Cowboys vs 49ers: Offense-Defense Battle
The Dallas Cowboys took care of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-14, meaning they’ll take on the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers also got the job done over the Seattle Seahawks, 41-23. Both teams are firey on offense, but aggressive on defense. It’ll be a great matchup because the 49ers defense will be all over the Cowboys offense, and vice versa.
Commanders vs Themselves: Clean House?
The Washington Commanders are not in the playoffs, but could we see them next season? Per NBC Sports Washington, the team is getting close to being sold. Could that mean the team and coaching staff gets a face lift?
