The Cowboys cannot play a wild-card game at Philadelphia no matter what happens, since they have clinched at least the fifth seed and the Eagles would be the third seed if they do win the division.

That means that Dallas is likely to play a first-round game at Seattle - and remember that no Super Bowl loser has won a playoff game the following season since 1997, and no NFC Super Bowl loser has done so since 1977!.

The Seahawks, however, will have one advantage in this postseason: Matt Hasselbeck has won two playoff games in his NFL career; assuming the Giants beat Washington Saturday night and something totally ridiculous doesn't happen on Sunday with the strength-of-victory thing, the other five NFC playoff quarterbacks combined will have won one, by one point (Jeff Garcia, 39-38 over the Giants in a wild-card game in 2002).
