Only one team is a repeat team from last year in the current NFC playoff standings

Dallas is a wild card team after Week 9. When the Dallas Cowboys went into their bye week with a 2-3 record after a gut-punch loss to the Green Bay Packers, the playoffs were something far off in the distance.

Today, the Cowboys are riding a three-game winning streak to a 5-3 record and a spot as the sixth and final team in the NFC playoff standings. There is still the possible Zeke suspension looming, but as of right now things are...

Dak and Zeke report: Strong second half keys win over Kansas City

Unlike in losses to the Rams and Packers, Dak Prescott and Dallas played stronger in the second half en route to an impressive win over the Chiefs. Well, that was a satisfying 28-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

NFC playoff picture: Cowboys and Eagles to meet in divisional round?

If the NFC playoffs were to start today ... The NFL has reached its halfway mark, and while there is still a lot of football left to be played, today we'll ask ourselves the question, what if the NFC playoffs were to start today?
