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 NFCEast 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.
