The win gave Dallas its 17th NFC East Division title, 21st overall, and home field advantage for this weekend's Wild Card Playoff Game.
Spencer finished third on the team with five tackles while adding two pressures and a team-best 2.0 sacks - marking his third multiple sack game of the season and his career. Spencer also forced a fumble on one of the sacks.
He was part of a defensive unit that shutout the Eagles 24-0, which was the 17th shutout by Dallas in team history. Coupled with the team's 17-0 shutout last week at Washington, it marked the third time Dallas had two shutouts in one season – (10/11/70 & 12/6/70 and 9/15/74 & 11/24/74) – and the first time in team history the Cowboys shutout an opponent in back-to-back weeks.
