Do their job Sunday afternoon in Arlington and the Cowboys can make the rest of their 2018 regular season pretty simple. They won't have to worry, as they did last year, about results in Detroit, Seattle or Carolina, nor will they face the pressure of having to win out merely to have a chance of getting the last spot in the NFC's post-season tournament.

Beat the Eagles and all the Cowboys will need to do to get into the playoffs is win one of their three remaining games against the 6-6 Colts, the 5-7 Buccaneers or the 4-8 Giants, barring some truly unforeseen circumstances
