ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys are out of the playoffs despite a 47-16 season-ending win over Washington. Dak Prescott threw for four touchdowns, but the defending NFC East champions were eliminated from the postseason when Philadelphia beat the New York Giants. The Cowboys lost control of their playoff fate with a 17-9 loss to the Eagles last week. Now they wait to see how much longer Jason Garrett will be their coach after underachieving in the final year of his contract. Michael Gallup caught three TD passes, and Ezekiel Elliott had a touchdown rushing and another receiving.
