It’s only Week 13, but the Cowboys can already punch their ticket to the playoffs this weekend.
With a win over the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football, the Cowboys need either a Buccaneers loss or tie to the San Diego Chargers or a Washington Redskins loss to the Cardinals in order to secure their place in this year’s tournament.
The Cowboys have only made the playoffs eight times since winning their last Super Bowl in the 1995 season. They’re just 3-8 in those trips, never advancing past the divisional round.
