Cowboys-Eagles followed by Cowboys-Eagles

The Cowboys play the Eagles this week. The Packers play the Cardinals. There is a better-than-good chance those could be the NFC matchups in the wild-card round of the playoffs. The Jets and the Bengals also play this week, which could be a preview of an AFC wild-card game. (There is a very slim chance the Patriots and Texans could meet in back-to-back weeks. The Texans need two of three teams (Jets, Broncos and Ravens) to lose.)

Nine times in history have teams played each other in back-to-back weeks -- in the regular-season finale followed by a playoff game. Four times the same team won both games. Five times the teams split.
