It's never a great thing when you're counting on the Washington Redskins.
Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys found a way to fight back today down in DC and juuuust missed crumbling for the second week in a row.
The Redskins had the Cowboys up against the ropes in the fourth quarter but Romo found DeMarco Murray on 4th and goal from the ten yard line to put the Cowboys up for good. Well, after Dan Bailey barely freakin' made the extra point.
The incredible potential for a party at the Linc tonight was totally extinguished with the Cowboys victory today. Whether the Birds win or lose tonight does not matter for their playoff hopes. It could obviously help with seeding and momentum, but not whether they get in or not.
The Eagles must win in Dallas next week to win the NFC East and earn a playoff berth.
Chip had said earlier in the week that he'll stick with his regular guys regardless of the outcome of Washington-Dallas. Should he stick with that plan?
On the plus side, maybe you can have an extra cocktail or three tonight and not stress about the game all that much. #NoInjuries

The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract.
Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.
In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015.
Thomas (6-5, 315 pound) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing agains the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016.
In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries.
Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.
Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.
Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.
"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.
Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.
It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
