There are only two weeks left in the NFL’s regular season.
Teams are making a final push toward the playoffs, hoping they can find a way to sneak in and make some noise in the postseason.
When looking ahead to this weekend’s matchup between the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys, both teams have already secured their playoff berth.
While it is not necessarily imperative for either team to win this game, David Jacoby pointed to the Cowboys as a team that “needs a win bad.”
“This is a huge win for the Cowboys even though it won’t change much in terms of the playoffs. They just need a win bad.”

After a fast start to the year, the Cowboys have lost their last two games, including a 31-10 defeat from the Buffalo Bills.
As Jacoby indicates, if they want to have any momentum heading into the playoffs, they’ll want to beat the Lions this weekend.
This is especially important for the Cowboys heading into Week 18, where they will take on the Washington Commanders, who have nothing to play for.
While Jacoby believes that this is a must-win for the Cowboys, the Lions could still use the victory.
They are still in the hunt for the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC, as they are in a three-way tie with the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers.
The last two games of the year are especially vital for this team, as they could secure a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Fans will want to be sure to tune into this game, as it could provide a playoff-like atmosphere for these two dominant NFC rosters.
