NFL.com uses the designations x y z and * as playoff clinch codes. X means clinched a playoff spot. Y means clinched division title which is NFC East for the Cowboys . Z means clinched first round bye. Finally * guarantees home field advantage throughout playoffs not, of course, including the super bowl.
So with two games remaining in the regular season, the Dallas Cowboys are the ONLY xyz* team in the ENTIRE National Football League. To put this in proper perspective, the legendary Patriots are the only xyz team meaning Tom Brady’s team have not yet clinched home field on the AFC side. How bout them Cowboys Jimmy Johnson?!!!
Damn it’s nice to be playing at home in indoor heated stadium rather than in super frigid NYC stadium where Prescott was a little out of sorts as a result of the elements. What else could you expect from the affable performer from warm Mississippi?
