Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) throws down the "X" as he celebrates his second-quarter touchdown pass reception during the Detroit Lions vs. the Dallas Cowboys NFL football game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Monday, December 26, 2016.
While the Lions (9-6) missed a chance to clinch a playoff berth with their second straight loss following five consecutive wins, they still control their postseason fate. But a win could give the heart-attack Lions a division title and a home playoff game, the latter of which they have not had since January 8, 1994. Detroit plays Green Bay (9-6) for the NFC North title in the finale Sunday.
The Redskins (8-6-1) now sit seventh in the six-team playoff picture after beating the Chicago Bears, 41-21. That game also was moved to prime time. Meticulously, he led his team down the field, all the way to Cowboys' 12-yard line with ten seconds remaining. If the Cowboys believe Romo only has a limited amount of football left in him, it's not wise to waste it on regular season mop-up duty.
The Lions seem to relish the underdog role, and they wouldn't have it any other way. The Cowboys biggest stars, quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott were prepping for bowl games this time a year ago, and there has been talk of them hitting the proverbial "rookie wall" in recent weeks.
The Cowboys improved to 13-2.
I was really surprised that the Cowboys didn't bring anybody in to compete with Green, but thankfully when he had to fill in a couple of games for Tyron Smith earlier in the season, he performed better than anyone could have possibly expected.

It was tough watching the Lions try and run the football last week in NY.
Another thing was that the Lions clearly put it on Stafford's shoulders with the no-huddle offense, despite finding some rushing success in the first half. If the Lions lose their next two and Washington beats the Giants at home in Week 17, that would mean three clubs from the NFC East make the playoffs.
Prescott bounced back from his worst game as a pro, going 32 of 36 for 279 yards a week after completing less than 50 percent of his passes in a 10-7 loss to the New York Giants. He rushed for a career-high 159 yards with a touchdown last week. Detroit quarterback Matt Stafford is a native Texan who would love to get the win in front of his friends and family.
They need all of those to force a three-way tiebreaker with the Lions and Redskins (thus eliminating the common games tiebreaker) and win it on Strength of Victory.
Prescott leads all rookies in passing yards (3,418), touchdowns (20) and passer rating (103.2). When I was in class, people were asking me to sign stuff and they were taking selfies with me on the way to class.

Winston has cut down on his mistakes in year two and has benefited from a healthy and productive wide receiver in Mike Evans . Under that scenario, the Redskins would finish, at worst, 9-6-1, while the Bucs and Packers could get to only 9-7.
Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will be calling the game from the booth, and Heather Cox will serve as the sideline reporter. On Thursday, the Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants and can end their chances at a division title with a win.
Cornerback Aqib Talib said he would've thought somebody was lying if they told him they would hold Brady to 16 points and lose. The outcome of the game against the Patriots was similar to what happened last week in the 13-10 loss to Tennessee in Week 14.
