UNDATED (WTVB) - So  much  was at stake  on the final  day of the  NFL's regular season that it might  have  been one  of the  league's best finales.  It finished in dramatic fashion  as the Philadelphia Eagles held off the Dallas Cowboys, 24-22, to win the  NFC East. Kyle Orton hit Dez Bryant with a 32-yard TD pass with 3:50 left in  the fourth  quarter,  but  Cary Williams  knocked  away Dallas'  two-point conversion  attempt. Brandon  Boykin sealed  the  outcome when  he picked  off Orton.  The  third-seeded Eagles move  on to host  the New Orleans Saints next Saturday night. Drew  Brees fired four  touchdown passes in the first half and added  a  rushing score in  the second and the  Saints secured a playoff berth with a 42-17 thumping of Tampa Bay. 

Also in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers won the North on a late bomb, as Aaron Rodgers found a wide-open Randall Cobb on 4th-and-8 for a 48-yard touchdown and 33-28 victory over the Chicago Bears. Green Bay earned the fourth seed in the NFC playoffs and will host the San  Francisco 49ers in the wild card round next Sunday afternoon in the 4-5 matchup. No.  1 seeds ended up with the  Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, who were among the best teams in their conferences all season.  Peyton  Manning set  the  NFL's  single-season passing  yards  record and  the Broncos became the first team in league history to score 600 points in a 34-14 win  over  Oakland that locked up  the AFC's top seed for home-field advantage throughout the conference playoffs.  The  Seahawks won the  NFC West and earned the NFC's No. 1 seed by beating St.  Louis  27-9. The Rams also got some good news, as they ended up with the No. 2  pick in the 2014 NFL Draft after Washington's loss earlier on Sunday. The Rams  will  receive  the Redskins'  pick to  complete the  Robert Griffin III trade. Also  Sunday, the Houston Texans ensured they would have the No. 1 pick after falling to 2-14 with a loss to Tennessee. The  San  Diego Chargers  earned an  improbable playoff  berth, rallying for a 27-24 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime to nail down the AFC's final wild card spot. The Chargers were only in position to get a berth after losses by  Miami and Baltimore earlier in the day kept them alive. They will play AFC North-champion  Cincinnati  next Sunday  afternoon. The  Chiefs, who rested 19  starters, will play at AFC South-champion Indianapolis on Saturday afternoon.  In  Atlanta,  Cam Newton threw two  touchdown passes and the Carolina Panthers won  the NFC South with a 21-20 victory over the Falcons. The Panthers secured a first-round bye in the playoffs with their 11th win in 12 games.  The  New York Jets knocked the Miami Dolphins out of playoff contention with a win,  then  announced head  coach Rex  Ryan would be  back next season despite widespread rumors about his job security. Farther north, the AFC East-champion New  England Patriots  beat Buffalo  but settled  for the  No. 2  seed in  the conference. 

The  Cleveland Browns fired Rob Chudzinski on Sunday night, saying they didn't see  enough improvement  in  his one  season as  coach.  The Browns  announced Chudzinski  was  out just hours after  a season-ending 20-7 loss to Pittsburgh dropped  them to 4-12.
