The Dallas Cowboys blew out the Washington Redskins 47-16 on Sunday, but it became largely meaningless in the grand scheme of things. Dallas needed a win and a Philadelphia Eagles loss in order to win the NFC East (and with no chance to be a Wild Card team). The Eagles were playing the New York Giants at the same time the Cowboys were playing the Redskins.
And in the fourth quarter of the Eagles-Giants game, Philadelphia’s Boston Scott ran for his third touchdown of the game to put the Eagles up 27-17 (they went on to win 34-17). Cowboys owner Jerry Jones watched this happen on television from his suite at AT&T Stadium, and thankfully, the Fox broadcast camera found him.

It’s not like the Cowboys were deserving whatsoever of a division title — or even a playoff spot — as an 8-8 team anyway. And it’s their fourth 8-8 finish over the last nine seasons. It will be interesting to see if Jerrah decides to keep Jason Garrett as head coach.
