    For one night only, Cowboys fans were also Eagles fans.

    The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants 24-19 on NBC Thursday Night Football, helping the Cowboys clinch the NFC East title.

    More importantly, the Cowboys have also secured the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC playoffs, which includes a first-round bye and home field advantage.

    Cowboys fans were seen lining up outside the Academy on Centrall Expressway and Forest Lane Thursday night, waiting to grab some of the first t-shirts and hats bearing the championship title.

    The Cowboys host the NFC North-leading Detroit Lions (9-5) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Monday night.
