1. Week 16 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

I wanted to put the Wild Card win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on this list. It was Dallas' first road playoff win in 30 years. There's no doubt that was an exciting win for every Cowboys fan out there. However, the game itself wasn't thrilling.

When looking back at the Wild Card game, it wasn't back-and-forth. It wasn't exciting, and Dallas rolled from the start. They led 18-0 at halftime and 24-0 late in the third quarter.

Although it wasn't the Prescott versus Jalen Hurts quarterback battle we all wanted, the Cowboys and Eagles played one of the most exciting games of the season on Sunday Night Football.

The Eagles got off to a fast start and scored 10 points within the first six minutes following a Prescott pick-six. Dallas, though, answered back and tied the game at 17 with just under two minutes to play in the half. Philadelphia would get a field goal to end the half (20-17).

Even when the Eagles took a double-digit lead in the third quarter, Prescott and the Cowboys answered back again. In the final 20 minutes of the game, Dallas outscored Philadelphia 23-7.

Prescott threw two touchdown passes -- one to CeeDee Lamb and one to Gallup -- to tie up the game before the quarterback led the Cowboys into field goal range for the go-ahead score with under two minutes remaining. Philadelphia had their chances late, but Dallas' defense forced a fumble and turnover on downs to secure the victory.

Anytime the Cowboys beat the Eagles in a close game, it's exciting. This one in Week 16 was a back-and-forth contest that featured six lead changes.
