If the Eagles beat the Cowboys Sunday night, there are 10 different ways they can clinch a playoff berth.

A win alone won’t be enough on its own for the Eagles to clinch a postseason berth in week 13, but a win combined with any one of multiple scenarios will get the Eagles into the postseason for the third straight year and sixth time in the last seven years.

Here’s a look at what has to happen for the Eagles to clinch a postseason berth this weekend:

An Eagles win AND:

• A Rams loss or tie to the Ravens in Baltimore;

• A Seahawks loss or tie to the 49ers in Santa Clara;

• A Vikings loss or tie to the Raiders in Las Vegas AND a Packers loss or tie to the Giants in East Rutherford;

• A Packers loss or tie to the Giants AND a Lions loss to the Bears in Chicago;

An Eagles tie AND:

• A Rams loss to the Ravens AND a Seahawks loss to the 49ers;

• A Rams loss to the Ravens AND a Vikings loss or tie to the Raiders;

• A Rams loss to the Ravens AND a Packers loss or tie to the Giants;

• A Seahawks loss to the 49ers AND a Vikings loss or tie to the Raiders;

• A Seahawks loss AND a Packers loss or tie to the Giants;

• A Vikings loss AND Packers loss.

The Cowboys and 49ers, who are both 9-3, are the only other NFL teams that can clinch a playoff berth this weekend. Neither would clinch just with a win, but both could clinch with a win and other scenarios occurring. No AFC teams can clinch this weekend.

The Eagles, 10-2, have held or shared the best record in the NFL for 31 consecutive weeks. They face the Cowboys at 8:20 p.m. Sunday at AT&T Stadium.

The 49ers host the Seahawks at 4:05 p.m. Sunday at Levi’s Stadium.
