Folks, I am here to save the day.
If the Dallas Cowboys want to make the playoffs, all they have to do is beat the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday. It is truly that simple.
However, for those of us who watched ESPN all weekend long, we got confused. Why? Because ESPN was reporting all Sunday that in order for the Cowboys to make the playoffs, they needed to win against the Eagles, have the Falcons lose once and the Bucs lose TWICE. Not only was the one and only Chris Berman saying this all Sunday but the ESPN ticker had it scrolling the entire day. Once ESPN figured it was completely wrong, it never corrected the errors. It just stopped running it and had the idiots stop saying it.
It was the most irresponsible garbage I have seen from the network since the Ed Werder locker room scandal.
It was untrue. Here are the scenarios:
- Dallas wins, they are in with at least the 6th seed
- Falcons lose and Cowboys win, then Cowboys are fifth seed
- Cowboys lose, Cowboys miss the playoffs
