The Cowboys have been looking like playoff contenders all season long, while Detroit found their footing after a rocky start. They could have sealed the NFC North in week 15, but the Lions dropped a close one to the surging New York Giants, who were fresh off of giving Dallas their second loss of the season the week before. Lions QB Matthew Stafford, 28, has proved to be a master of comebacks, as his team has trailed in the fourth quarter for eight or their last nine wins, so Dallas will want to get out ahead and stay there if they want to prevail.
That shouldn’t be a problem as the duo of Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, 23, and running back Ezekiel Elliott, 21, have been on fire all season, and their efforts were recognized by the NFL Dec. 20 as they became the first rookie duo from one team to make the Pro Bowl. Now that Dallas has everything they could have hoped for in the post season, the Lions are going to come in to do a major battle to keep their divisional championship hopes alive. Will Dallas fold and let the Detroit get their much needed win? Watch and see in this amazing game.
