Cowboys clinch 1st playoff berth since 2018 due to 49ers loss


DALLAS, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys have clinched a playoff berth for the first time since 2018 with the San Francisco 49ers' 20-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night.

Dallas (10-4) currently sits as the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs and still has a shot at the No. 1 seed.

The Cowboys are one game back of the Green Bay Packers (11-3) with three games remaining. Dallas and Green Bay are the only teams in the NFL to earn playoff bids thus far.

Dallas will clinch the NFC East with a win Sunday over Washington, or with a Philadelphia Eagles loss to the New York Giants. 

Dallas last won the NFC East, and made the playoffs, in 2018 when they lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the Divisional Round.

The Cowboys have not advanced past the Divisional Round since 1995, which is also when the team last won the Super Bowl.
