The Dallas Cowboys have been the focus of criticism for weeks now, as the team and its postseason hopes seemingly fell apart. But after getting their first win over a team with a winning record in Week 15, the Cowboys' odds to win the Super Bowl have jumped from +4000 to +2500, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Cowboys Odds to Make Playoffs

While they are only 7-7 on the season, the Cowboys have found some momentum with their 44-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15. However, that game is behind them and the only one the matters now is their Week 16 matchup in Philadelphia with the Eagles, in which the winner clinches a playoff spot with an NFC East title and the loser will be watching the postseason from home.

Football Outsiders gives the Cowboys a 66.6 percent chance of winning this upcoming game and clinching a playoff spot, while FanDuel Sportsbook gives them -152 odds to make the NFL Playoffs. Dallas' odds to make the postseason remained the same that they were this time last week, however, its odds to win the NFC East improved to -155 from -140.

The Cowboys are in a unique position heading into this weekend as they essentially have a playoff game coming two weeks early with a postseason bid up for grabs in Week 16, especially as 2.5-point road favorites over Philly, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

While still the underdogs to make the postseason in this scenario, the Eagles still have +114 odds to make the NFL Playoffs and +130 odds to win the NFC East, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
