The Dallas Cowboys have enormous hopes of winning a Super Bowl for the first time in 27 years. Currently, Dak Prescott has silenced his critics with a record of 9-3 and is closely trailing teams like the Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers.
The big question surrounding the Cowboys was that they hadn’t been able to defeat a single team with a winning record. Now, as their schedule entered the most challenging stage, thousands of fans were wondering if they are ready to be a championship caliber franchise.
After a huge victory over the Washington Commanders on Thanksgiving Day, their chances of securing home-field advantage are still alive with another great performance at home against Seattle. A tremendous 41-35 victory in Week 13.
Dallas Cowboys are still in the mix for the NFC East
In the standout game of Week 12, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Buffalo Bills (37-34), achieving an impressive record of 10-1. Thanks to this result, Nick Sirianni and his players had a two-game lead over the Dallas Cowboys.
Furthermore, the Eagles hold the tiebreaker over the Cowboys as they won their first meeting in Week 9. If that wasn’t enough, Philadelphia have a 6-0 record against NFC opponents, while Dallas now stand at 7-3 in such matchups.
As a result, in practical terms, the Dallas Cowboys were almost three games behind the Eagles before playing the Seahawks. Now, considering the 49ers and Philadelphia will clash on Sunday, the home-field advantage dream seems, once again, within reach thanks to Thursday’s win against Seattle.
Who will have home-field advantage in the NFC?
The Philadelphia Eagles have a record of 10-1 and hold the No. 1 seed with a possible bye week. The San Francisco 49ers are No. 2 with a record of 8-3, followed by the Detroit Lions at No. 3 (8-3). Despite a record of 5-6, the Atlanta Falcons are the No. 4 seed as division leaders.
That implies that, if Jalen Hurts avoids a massive downfall, the Cowboys (9-3) will have to play the wild card round as visitors against the NFC South champion. After that, their path would likely take them to face San Francisco on the road and potentially Detroit or Philadelphia also away in the NFC Championship Game.
The numbers don’t lie about the impact the Cowboys felt with Philadelphia’s victory over Buffalo. In 2023, Dallas has a record of 6-0 at home and 3-3 on the road. Undoubtedly, their chances of winning the Super Bowl depend on AT&T Stadium, although anything is possible in the NFL.
