The Dallas Cowboys' offense wasn't the only thing that couldn't take off today.
Not long after they were bested by the Philadelphia Eagles by a 17-9 final in a massive game with playoff implications, their charter plane out of Philadelphia was deemed “not viable” to fly, according two people with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

Had the Cowboys defeated the Eagles, they'd have won the NFC East. Now, they'll have to rely on an Eagles loss next week combined with a win over the Redskins to to secure a playoff berth.
