AJ Brown was on Fire

Dallas Headed Back to the Playoffs with SF Loss

Tennessee also helped the Dallas Cowboys get a free pass in the playoffs, allowing them to enter the postseason for the first time since 2018. With San Francisco losing, the Cowboys moved to second in the NFC standings with the better conference record than their fellow 10-4 teams Tampa Bay, Arizona, and the L.A. Rams.

Dallas also became the second team after the Green Bay Packers to clinch a playoff berth. But the Cowboys have a bigger goal in mind and they are still overwhelming favorites to top the AFC East. Dallas can clinch their division with a win over Washington on Sunday. And even if they lose, a Giants win over the Eagles or the Cowboys returning the favor by clinching a strength-of-victory tiebreaker over the Eagles would still land Dallas the AFC East.

Despite the loss, the 49ers still have a 69% chance of making the playoffs according to ESPN’s playoff index. If both the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints win on Sunday, the 49ers will move down to the 7th spot in the conference but it looks like there is no scenario where they will fall lower than no. 7. San Francisco plays the Houston Texans in Week 17 and that’s a sigh of relief for them.
