Saturday night’s NFL doubleheader ended with the Chiefs rallying to defeat the Broncos and the Cowboys sweeping the NFC East with a win over the rival Eagles.
Though the Cowboys and Eagles both had already clinched playoff berths before the game, Dallas was still playing to move up to possibly the No.2 seed in the NFC. The Eagles, on the other hand, accepted their fate wouldn’t change much as the highest they could get would be No.6 seed in the conference. They rested several key players and the Cowboys ended up with a 6-0 sweep in the NFC East.
The Chiefs came back to win it against the Broncos and clinched at least the No.2 seed in the AFC. The Titans will now have to win over the Texans to keep their spot at top seed in the AFC and get home-field advantage.
