After securing NFC East title, Cowboys host Lions

Monday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys left the Detroit Lions facing a winner-take-all scenario in their season finale against the Green Bay Packers. The New Orleans Saints defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-7), who now sit a half-game behind Washington following the loss, and the Cowboys beat the Lions despite already clinching the NFC East division title and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. He reached his boiling point after Lions running back Zach Zenner scored on a 5-yard run midway through the second quarter. QB Dak Prescott started out strong but has struggled a bit as the season's worn on, and he's completing 67.7% of his passes for 3,418 yards, 20 touchdowns and four interceptions. Dallas went up 35-21. There's risk to that approach, as the Cowboys have risky weapons in the passing game and Prescott is coming off one of his best performances of the season. Dez hauled in seven of those for his first 100-yard receiving game since November of 2015.

Both Prescott and rookie rusher Ezekiel Elliott have greatly benefited from Dallas's stout offensive line. After they drove to the 10, Prescott flipped the ball to Bryant on what looked like an end around, and then Bryant pulled up and tossed it to a wide open Jason Witten for a touchdown. Our Redskins have a chance to turn a season with 4 lost games they should have won into a season that is successful and one to be proud of.

"They're not going to go back and change it and we have a way in which we can voice our opinion without necessarily talking to the media about it because it doesn't really function that way in terms of our system so we'll use the protocol, the proper vehicle to do just that".

Jason Garrett gets all the credit in the world for this big win. There was enough time to put up a fight, but they just couldn't get things going.

We know the Redskins offense has the talent to and is capable of scoring over 30 points a game when they do not shoot themselves in the foot with penalties, dropped passes and call bad red-zone plays.

The Dallas Cowboys will be the No. 1 seed.

A win would take the pressure off of the Lions, who don't want everything riding on their ability to knock off the red-hot Rodgers in the 256th game of the season. In fact, over the past eight weeks, no team had given up fewer points than Detroit.
