The Philadelphia Eagles end the 2021-2022 season on a high note.

Well, they don’t call it Cowboys week for no reason. Whenever these two meet, things just feel different.

Perhaps one of the wise things that the NFL’s schedule makers have done has been concluding each team’s regular-season schedule with a few games versus divisional opponents. Philly’s Week 18 game pits them against their rivals from Texas, and this one figures to still be relevant to postseason berths as the expectation is nothing will be ironed out in the NFC East by the time we all arrive at this point of the season.

This one could be some sort of winner-take-all scenario or, as it was last season, a game where the winner determines whether or not another team from the division will earn a spot in the postseason. These are the Cowboys though. There’s no way Philly’s laying down for them right?

The Birds take this one by two scores.

Final score: Cowboys 16, Eagles 26 (2021-2022 Eagles record: 9-8)

Final thoughts: If you’re keeping score, this gives the Philadelphia Eagles a 9-8 overall record, a mark of 3-3 in the NFC East, and a 6-6 win-loss total versus the National Football Conference. Will that be enough to lift them to a postseason berth? We won’t have to wait too much longer to learn the answer.
