Cowboys Clinch NFC East With 38-10 Rout Of Commanders

The victory clinches the No. 2 seed in the NFC and sets up a home date with the No. 7 seed Green Bay Packers.

LANDOVER, Md. — The Dallas Cowboys secured their spot at the top of the NFC East with a 38-10 victory over the Washington Commanders at FedEx Field on Sunday afternoon.

The victory clinches the No. 2 seed in the NFC and sets up a home date with the No. 7 seed Green Bay Packers next weekend in the wildcard round of the NFL Playoffs.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott finished the game by throwing for 279 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. He completed 31 of his 36 passes before being subbed out for backup quarterback Cooper Rush with 5:31 left in regulation.

Dallas has won the division for the second time in three seasons but have lost to the San Francisco 49ers, this year’s No. 1 overall seed, the past two years: the wildcard round in 2021 and the divisional round in 2022.

The Philadelphia Eagles (11-6) lost to the New York Giants on Sunday on the road, entering the postseason having lost five of their last six games.

The Cowboys lost cornerback Stephon Gilmore in the victory to an injury after he suffered an apparent arm injury. However, he won’t be missing any playoff time.

“He told me he was fine,” Dallas coach Mike McCarthy said, “and he’d be ready to go.”
