The NFL has officially announced the specifics of next week's regular-season finale with Washington, a game that still has plenty of playoff implications.

The Cowboys will face the Commanders on Sunday at 3:25 p.m. City at FedEx Field. At the same time, the Giants and Eagles will play in Philly.

If the Eagles can win and improve to 14-3, they will win the NFC East title outright and receive the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC. But the Cowboys can still win the division if they beat Washington and the Giants beat the Eagles.

While the Commanders were eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday, the Giants have little to play for next week after locking up the No. 6 seed in the NFC playoff picture this weekend.

For the Cowboys, if they don't win the division, they'll be the No. 5 seed and face Tampa Bay, which won the NFC South on Sunday over the Panthers.

The NFL changed its format for Week 18 this season, leaving the entire weekend open to all teams, allowing the league to set the final week based on the most interesting matchups.

But since the Cowboys/Commanders and Giants/Eagles influence each other, the league decided to play these two games at the same time.

For the Cowboys, a chance to win the division will prevent them from resting key starters. If the Eagles had beaten the Saints, the expectation was that several top players,

from Dak Prescott to Micah Parsons, would get some much-needed rest in the regular-season finale. That's unlikely to happen with two divisional games starting at the same time.

And if the Cowboys win the NFC East, they either have a 49ers loss to the Cardinals to get the No. 1 seed, or possibly the No. 2 seed, which would guarantee them home for Week 1 and Week 2 of the postseason if they advance.
