The Dallas Cowboys could have ended the suspense with a win in Indianapolis on Sunday afternoon.

But the Cowboys’ 23-0 loss to the Colts and the Washington Redskins (7-7) beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 16-13 means they’ll have to wait until next week to clinch the NFC East.

The Cowboys could clinch the NFC East before they play next week. If the Eagles lose to the Rams on Sunday night and the Redskins lose to the Titans on Saturday, they’ll win the NFC East before Sunday’s game vs. the Bucs.

The Cowboys (8-6) saw their five-game win streak snapped by the surging Colts (8-6). The Colts snapped the Houston Texans’ nine-game win streak last week and have won seven of their last eight games.

The last time the Cowboys were shutout in a game was Nov. 16, 2003, when the New England Patriots beat them 12-0.
