The NFL had some interesting outcomes with the Sunday slate of games.
While some games held playoff implications for teams, others were meaningless games.
However, for two teams, their losses were crushing for them.
So which two teams had crushing defeats on Sunday?
With the Dallas Cowboys being in a tough division with the Philadelphia Eagles, they needed a win.
Their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars was a chance for them to keep pace with the Eagles.
However, an overtime interception cost the Cowboys the win.

The loss is crushing for several reasons, with the first being how they gave up 40 points to a 6-8 team.
But the biggest issue is how this loss can cost them a shot at winning the NFC East.
Now, the Cowboys need to win out and hope for the Eagles to lose out to win their division.
New England Patriots
If you are looking for the most crushing defeat from Sunday, look no further than the New England Patriots loss.
With the game tied in Las Vegas, the game was looking like overtime was coming.
However, an insane play by the Patriots gave the Las Vegas Raiders the win.

Instead of heading to overtime, players for the Patriots were trying to make something happen with no time remaining.
But the actions by players to extend the last play saw a turnover ending the game.
With the loss, the Patriots now fall out of the playoff picture.
While they can make it back into the race, the loss forces them to fight an uphill battle.
