The Dallas Cowboys head into the NFL wild card playoffs against the number one rush defense in the nation. However, the Detroit Lions just learned their best defensive player, Ndamukong Suh, has been suspended.
The Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions prepare to play in the NFC wild card game. Here is a look at the Lions as they take on Dallas in the Cowboys first playoff berth in five years.
The Detroit Lions have to face the Dallas Cowboys and their excellent offense, perhaps without Ndamukong Suh.
In 2014, the New York Giants (6-10) committed over $116 million in free agent contracts in order to avoid a repeat of the 2013 season. Unfortunately, injuries derailed Big Blue’s season before it ever started, and the team continues to be a work-in-progress.
The Eagles went from being able to wrap up a second straight NFC East crown at home to three weeks later being locked out of the postseason fun. The Eagles won 10 games, but will have nothing more to show for it. It never should have come to this.
Any given Sunday, one NFL team can tie another.
Two NFC East teams going in different directions will face off on Saturday, but there is still a lot to prove. The Philadelphia Eagles need to make sure they earn a spot in the playoffs.

A last-second field goal by Shayne Graham brought an end to the first season of the Chip Kelly era as the Saints left Philadelphia with a 26-24 victory in the NFC Wild Card playoff. The time for season-long evaluations will come over the coming week, but for now let’s take a quick look at how the Eagles performed in this game.
