If you were hoping the Dallas Cowboys would make it to the playoffs then you will have to wait until next season. Dallas lost to the New York Giants with a score of 19 to 23 eliminating them from playoff contention.
The offense was absolutely terrible the first half of the game for the Cowboys. It seemed as if they couldn’t catch Daltons throws , Dalton getting sacked several times and when the offense finally caught a ball , they would make it a yard or two. The only thing keeping the Cowboys on the scoreboard was their kicker Zuerlien as he made three of his 3 field goal attempts. Then it was half time.
The beginning half looked a little more promising as Eziekel made a 62 yard drive and scored a Touchdown. Elliotts game this season has been a little off as he struggled to complete catches and score touchdowns . He has not been the usual Elliott we knew from the Ohio State days and his first two years with the Cowboys that have been phenomenal. Seeing this touchdown from him made me think back to his Ohio State game days when his “feed me “ actually felt like his road to promises of giving you a game you will remember .
The Cowboys were slowly catching up to the Giants as their offense started to wake up as they were coming to the realization that they need this win to have a chance in the playoffs. Then at the last final minute of the game Dalton throws an interception and at that second all of the Cowboys fans knew it was the end of the season for them.
All hopes of being in the playoffs next season will depend if Dak Prescott , who is a free agent , will get signed back to the Cowboys next season . After Daks injury hit is beyond clear that Dak can get this team to the playoffs. As I watched the Cowboys struggle all season I noticed the offense plays better when Dak is throwing the ball. Eziekel plays better when Dak is out there and so does Cooper.
For anyone who is curious who won the game between the Pittsburg Steelers and the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Browns took that game tonight as Ben Rothlisberger sat out and some of Pittsburgh tougher players sat out as well since the Steelers have already clenched their spot into the playoffs. Easy win for Cleveland tonight.
Better luck next year Dallas !
