NFL schedule 2012: Cowboys and Redskins close out regular season

The NFL saved Sunday's best game for last: Dallas vs. Washington with the NFC East crown on the line.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL's regular season comes to its conclusion with the national spotlight on America's Team. The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins will meet with the NFC East up for grabs in the finale of Sunday Night Football.

It's the marquee game of a Week 17 that will have a lot of postseason story lines. The Redskins (9-6) have a one-game lead over the Cowboys (8-7) and New York Giants (8-7) and can clinch the division's guaranteed playoff spot with a win. The same is true for the Cowboys, who would win the tie-breaker over the other two teams if they should beat their rivals on the road Sunday night.

The division title is the only road in for the Cowboys, who wouldn't be able to grab the final Wild Card spot with an 8-8 record.

Sunday night's game between the Cowboys and Redskins kicks off at 7:20 p.m. CT and can be seen on NBC. Here's the rest of the Week 17 NFL schedule. All times are CT:
