10. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED – Let’s face it, you thought the team was done after their Week 3 loss to the awful Cardinals. You lost hope during the Week 5 32-point, prime-time thrashing in San Francisco. Following consecutive defeats to the Bills and Dolphins in December, you were left thinking, “Same ol’ (bleeping) Cowboys!” The startling downfall of the Eagles and the Lions’ semi-proper reporting were a little assistance along the way. However, they finished 9-3, won the NFC East, and were granted the opportunity to host two playoff games following that depressing loss to the Niners. For a squad you gave up on, that was a rather brave reversal.

9. WOEFUL WASHINGTON – The Cowboys have a 3-1 record against the Commanders after winning both of their season-long encounters 83-20. They had records of 73-45-2 versus the Redskins and 3-3 against the football team.

8. DAK-TASTIC – It seems a little optimistic, if not ridiculous, to be talking about Dak Prescott winning MVP given Brock Purdy’s numbers and the 49ers’ current position. He did, however, end up with the most touchdown passes in the NFL with 36, matching Roger Staubach in 1973 as the only other Cowboys quarterback to accomplish so. He had four touchdown passes. What’s more, he kept his word to cut down on the number of interceptions. He completed 15 of 394 passes in 2022. Only nine out of 590 passes this year. Three selections were made in a single game, against San Francisco.

7. HOME, SWEET HOME – The Cowboys, seeded No. 2, will host at least two of their postseason games at AT&T Stadium. They defeated 8-0 at home. While travelling, they became 4-5. They could only possibly travel to play one road game, which they did in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers, losing 42-10.

6. FAMILIAR FOE – Next weekend, the Cowboys will play host to the Green Bay Packers in the NFL Playoffs’ opening round. The postseason record for the clubs is 4-4. After Brett Favre’s Green Bay teams were defeated three times in the 1990s by Dallas, the Packers have won the last two under Mike McCarthy’s coaching.

5. STREAK *SNAPPED – As rookie kicker Brandon Aubrey of the Cowboys finally *missed a field goal, Mike Vanderjagt, sitting somewhere on a couch, sighed with relief. Aubrey’s 32-yard try in the second quarter was a complete bust; there was never any opportunity to get it in. By blocking out, Tyler Biadasz created a wide opening on his inside, giving Joshua Pryor an unobstructed route to stop Aubrey’s kick. Technically, Aubrey’s career-beginning run ended with the miss at 35, two off Vanderjagt’s record-setting 37 from 2003. Aubrey made a mistake and missed a 36-yard try in the fourth quarter. He then began a fresh run of scoring with a 50-yarder to round off the score.

4. CRAFTY COMMANDERS – On the game’s opening play, they executed a reversal. “Philly Special” was the receiver-to-quarterback pass play they used. In the first half, they attempted four fourth downs, including two on their side of the 50. Washington performed like a team with nothing to lose, with offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy channelling his inner Mike Leach and maybe coaching his final game and head coach Ron Rivera auditioning for his future position. It was successful. for a period of time. The Commanders led 10–7 after a tipped interception and the blocked field goal, but the Cowboys quickly made it a blowout by scoring four touchdowns in four different drives.

3. TERRIFFIC TURNAROUND – The Cowboys played at FedEx Field on the first Sunday of January of last year, still mathematically able to win the NFC East. Rather, in a 26-6 defeat, Prescott played what may have been his worst game ever. He completed 14 of 37 passes with one pick-six. Dak was playing at his best level this year, and he needed a victory to take the NFC’s No. 2 spot. For 279 yards and the four touchdowns, he completed 31 of 36 passes. At the line of scrimmage, his lone pick was redirected.

2. LAMB THE GOAT? – Although CeeDee Lamb didn’t have the best receiving season in Cowboys history, he is still considered the team’s greatest wide receiver. Just before the half, he scored a leaning, reaching touchdown to give the team a 21-10 advantage. And halfway through the third quarter, he made it 28-10 with an impromptu 6-yard touchdown catch, effectively ending the game. He has caught 26 catches for 325 yards and three touchdowns in Dallas’ previous two crucial games. Lamb finished the season with 135 catches, the most in the NFL, 1,749 yards, and 12 touchdowns.

1. EAST BEASTS – Dallas’ triumph continues one of the most amazing runs in NFL history, as it now stands at 19 straight NFC East champions. A repeat winner hasn’t occurred since Philly in 2003–04. In the past ten years, the Cowboys have won the division five times. The Eagles, who appeared to be in charge of the division on Christmas, stumble into the postseason after suffering back-to-back defeats to the Cardinals and Giants, while they go into the playoffs off the strength of two excellent victories.
