NFL Week 16 was full of interesting games, surprises, and high scores. The biggest emotion of the round was due to the match between the Cowboys and Eagles, who are the leaders of the NFC East Division. The Eagles didn’t do enough to beat the Dallas team and struggled to hold off quarterback Dak Prescott throughout the game. The scenario of the NFC East Division did not change after this result but winning the best team of the season had a special flavor for the Cowboys, who had just finished qualifying for the playoffs.
Cowboys vs. Eagles were also the most points game of the round: 74 points. Round 16 also marked the heavy victory of the Rams over the Broncos (52-17). Despite the win, the Rams are unlikely to advance to the playoffs.
These are the teams that have already won a place in the playoffs: Bills, Bengals, Ravens, Chiefs, Chargers, Eagles, Cowboys, Vikings, and 49ers. The last two weeks will be decisive for us to know the last classifieds.
