PHILADELPHIA (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Dak Prescott threw a career-high five touchdown passes against Philadelphia Eagles backups to keep their slim No. 2 seed hopes alive with a 51-26 win on Jan 8.
The Cowboys still had seeding to play for against an Eagles team that rested Jalen Hurts and other key starters ahead of an NFC wild-card game next week.
The NFC East champion Cowboys (12-5) need losses Sunday by Tampa Bay against last-place Carolina and also for the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona to lose to earn the No. 2 seed. The Cowboys can't finish worse than the fourth seed. The Eagles (9-8) could still be the sixth seed.
Cedrick Wilson and Dalton Schultz each had two scoring catches. Corey Clement caught one, and JaQuan Hardy and Ito Smith ran for a touchdown each.
