No matter what happens this weekend, one thing is for sure. The San Francisco 49ers will have a bye week Wild Card weekend. Now how does the rest of seeding go? Well a lot can happen.

As the late Al Davis used to say, "Just win baby!" Win and that second seed is the Dallas Cowboys to have. However, if Detroit AND Philadelphia lose this weekend then the Dallas Cowboys will also have the 2nd seed if the Cowboys were to lose on Sunday. They would play the 7th seed (that is currently the Green Bay Packers).

How Can the Cowboys Get the 3rd Seed?

Cowboys would have to lose to the Washington Commanders AND the Philadelphia Eagles would lose to the New York Giants. Then if the Detroit Lions win, the Cowboys would fall down to the 3rd seed. They would get a home game in Arlington against the 6th seed (That would currently be the Los Angeles Rams).

How Can the Cowboys Get the 5th Seed?

The only way the Dallas Cowboys do not win their division and play their playoff games on the road would be if they lose to the Washington Commanders on Sunday AND the Philadelphia Eagles win. They would play the 4th seed (which would currently be in Tampa Bay against the Buccaneers).
