The Cowboys (7-5) posted their biggest win of the season when they stifled the high-scoring New Orleans Saints in their 13-10 win. The defense performed at a high level, leaving some people to say the team is capable of making a deep run in the playoffs. Quarterback Dak Prescott has completed 75 percent of his passes while throwing fo r745 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions during the winning streak.
The Eagles (6-6) were in danger of falling out of the playoff race before they defeated Washington in Week 13. They would take over first place on account of the division-record tiebreaker with a win over the Cowboys. Wide receiver Golden Tate produced his best game since arriving via trade – Tate caught seven passes for 85 yards and a touchdown against Washington.
