Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy is waiting to see how results shake out in Week 17 before he makes any decisions about the regular-season finale.

The Cowboys need the Eagles to lose out in order to have a chance to win the division. If the Eagles beat the Saints this weekend, Dallas can finish no higher or no lower than their current No. 5 seed.

On Friday, McCarthy was asked if he plans to rest his starters in Week 18.

“I think I should probably answer that Monday for you,” he said, per Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

The Cowboys notched their 12th win of the season with a victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday. McCarthy and his squad — starters or otherwise — will face off against the Washington Commanders in Week 18.

McCarthy will have his eyes on the Eagles as they face off against the Saints on Sunday.
