NFC playoff picture: All four NFC East teams would be in the playoffs if they started today

The Dallas Cowboys helped kick Week 12 off with their Thanksgiving Day game, but they were only one of six teams to play on Turkey Day. Unlike previous years, this season’s Thanksgiving Day matchups all delivered some high-quality football, and all three results had some important ramifications on the playoff picture across the league.

Of course, the Cowboys had a huge hand in that with their win which meant a loss for the New York Giants. Just a few hours after Dallas took care of business, the Minnesota Vikings kept their hopes for the number one seed in the NFC alive with a win against the New England Patriots, but the Philadelphia Eagles kept their hands on it for now with a Sunday night win against the Green Bay Packers.
