MNF: Cowboys vs Lions Game Thread

Tracy FergusonDec 28, 2016

Elliott, the National Football League rushing leader, had a 55-yard touchdown run in the first half and finished with 80 yards on 12 carries. "And we did, and we made it happen". In doing so, quarterback Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys continually prove their readiness for the playoffs. Prescott has been great, but the former Ohio State star has been better.

Although the Dallas Cowboys had already wrapped up a division title and home field advantage, Monday night's game against the Detroit Lions at AT&T Stadium produced some of the season's more memorable moments.

Even Elliott says would understand.

Of course, it's anything but a normal situation for both teams.

Green had missed the last four games with a hamstring injury but said earlier this week that he planned to play against Houston. By comparison, Savage is on the final year of the rookie contract he signed in 2014, which will pay him $300,584 this season.

The Cowboys are the top seed in the NFC. But the Lions can lock up at least a wild card berth with a win over the Cowboys.

Stafford has differentiated himself from his quarterback peers with his exceptional play at the end of games. It led directly to the Wilcox interception, and Stafford almost threw another one in the third quarter as Sean Lee put him under duress. They have to win one more game to secure the NFC East. The Cowboys obviously have superior personnel.

Stafford found Marvin Jones for a 1st on 3rd & 7 for a first down on the one-yard line. The Falcons (10-5) have clinched the NFC South, but Ryan has faced weaker defenses all season.

Another part of the game-plan should be to cover Odell Beckham Jr. with cornerback Josh Norman and keep the passes in front of the safeties.

The Steelers locked up the AFC North and the No. 3 seed with their win over the Baltimore Ravens. They scored three rushing touchdowns in the first two quarters, after coming into the game with just five total. Ezekiel Elliott broke a 55-yard run for a touchdown a few plays into the drive. The question now is: How will the Cowboys treat their final two games of the regular season? Carr was an MVP candidate before the injury, but he's probably a long shot.

"It's fitting the right gaps, making sure we're funneling the ball the right way, making sure that we're tackling", Austin said, when asked how they can be successful against Elliott, the NFL's leading rusher. And, it's now worth wondering how much Elliott will see the field Sunday, when the Cowboys take on the Eagles in a meaningless game.

Allowing Elliott some rest, by limiting his carries to 10 to 15, is what Dallas should do.

During his 5,000-yard season of 2011, Stafford beat the Cowboys in his first game back in his hometown as a pro. It looks like not many experts believe the Lions will get the win tonight, however, that is exactly the way Detroit likes it. The line has ticked down, so it would be a smaller wager after losing a half-point of value.
