The Cowboys want to play at AT&T Stadium one more time during these NFC playoffs.

A few things have to happen for that scenario to become a reality.

First, the team must earn a victory over the Rams in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Oddsmakers list Dallas as an underdog and fivethirtyeight.com does not project a victory for the road team.

The Cowboys also need the Eagles to go on the road and steal a victory from the Saints, the top seed in the NFC.

So, what is the point spread for that game?

Right now, the Eagles are eight-point underdogs at most betting outlets, according to vegasinsider.com.

And fivethirtyeight.com also does not project them to win the game, either. As of right now, the site gives Philadelphia a 36 percent chance to upset New Orleans.

However, it is worth noting that the data-driven outlet gives the Eagles a slightly greater chance to upset the Saints than it gives the Cowboys to upset the Rams.
