Scene of The Week: Eagles Defeat Cowboys in Important NFC East Matchup
The Dallas Cowboys walked into Lincoln Financial Field this past Sunday with one goal in mind: to lock up the NFC East. All the Cowboys needed was a win, and they were simply in. If the Eagles win, they’d have to also win Week 17 in order to clinch the NFC East Title and the 4th seed in the NFL Playoffs.
But the Eagles had an incredible defensive performance, only allowing the Cowboys to score nine points, putting up 17 of their own, downing their divisional rivals 17-9. Carson Wentz threw for 319 yards and a TD, with Dak Prescott throwing 265 yards. The Eagles travel to New York to take on the Giants in an important NFC East matchup, and if they secure the victory in the tundra of MetLife, they’ll be playing playoff football.
Take of the Week: Seahawks win the NFC West with a Win Next Week
The Seahawks and 49ers face off next week in Seattle with the winner clinching the NFC West and the potential of home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Seahawks defeated the 49ers earlier this season in San Francisco, with Russell Wilson and company having a great game.
Now they have a chance to defeat the Niners again, and this time it matters a whole lot more. I think the Seahawks will, in fact, win, thanks to a dominating performance by Wilson, a rumbling 10-15 carries from recent signing Marshawn Lynch and a stout performance from the Hawks defense, keeping Garoppolo out of hte end zone for much of the night.
Bengals Clinch No.1 Pick in NFL Draft
The Bengals have definitely not had the best season, going 1-14 through the first 15 games. But, the Bengals are now on the clock, and will most likely select QB Joe Burrow with the #1 overall pick in the NFL Draft. Burrow just recently won the Heisman at LSU and will help Cincinnati with its long term QB situation.
On the other hand, the Bengals could go and select DE Chase Young, who many are saying is the best defensive player this game has seen since Jadeveon Clowney. Young or Burrow, who will they take?
