Giants CB Jenkins (back) inactive vs. Eagles

NEW ORLEANS LA- DECEMBER 04 Matthew Stafford #9 of the Detroit Lions reacts during the first half of a game against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes Benz Superdome

Last night, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New York Giants which gave the Cowboys the top-seed in the NFC. This is the final game of Week 16, and features two teams that are in the postseason picture.

"Again, we're focused on practicing as well as we can practice and playing the best game we can play on Monday night and the preparation leading up to that is critical for us", Garrett said, "and we anticipate everyone being in the same roles they've been in".

Below you'll find some of the best tweets from Twitter celebrating the Dallas Cowboys NFC East championship. QB Matthew Stafford, who went to high school in Dallas, is averaging 287 yards passing with 11 TDs and five INTs in past seven road games.

Atlanta's Matt Ryan, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and Dallas' Dak Prescott were selected ahead of Stafford.

That quieted talk about replacing the rookie with longtime starter Tony Romo. Dallas is second in the league with 154.5 yards per game on the ground. But that was no match for Exekiel Elliott, who racked up 159 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries, followed by a viral post-TD celebration, jumping into the Salvation Army kettle. Prescott completed 32 of 36 passes for 279 yards and added a rushing touchdown in that 26-20 victory. He is much more patient than he used to be, although that has resulted in far fewer explosive plays. Ty Montgomery has been playing wide receiver for most of the season, but injuries to Eddie Lacy and James Starks early in the year led to him seeing a lot of snaps in the backfield. Fantasy Tip: Stafford has 728 yards passing with four TDs (three passing, one rushing) in two meetings with Cowboys. I just wanted to come back and perform after the game I had last week. The game was not quite a "must-win" but with the upcoming game against Dallas and the season finale against the Packers, a win against the Giants would have certainly been beneficial.

Love him or hate him, Detroit Lions' quarterback Matthew Stafford's latest move off the field is earning him fans across the nation. This will be their fifth consecutive game on national television. There will be a ton of eyes on both these teams.

Detroit is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday Nighters and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the under is 8-0 in their last 8 games overall.
