What a Game! Those poor Cowboys are going to require open heart surgery this offseason, because Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers crushed the Cowboys' Super Bowl hopes in the most devastating, Red Wedding/Titanic sort of way. Riding Aaron Rodgers' hot hand, the Packers held off a Cowboy comeback to win 34-31. The Boys have now lost 5 straight playoff games.
Rodgers zipped a 35-yard pass to tight end Jared Cook with 3 seconds remaining Sunday, setting up Mason Crosby’s game-winning 51-yard field goal in a 34-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys that moved the Pack one win from a Super Bowl berth.
The wild finish was just what the NFL needed after a postseason that had been void of competitive games thus far. The playoffs’ first six games were all decided by at least 13 points. Last night’s 2 point Steeler win capped off a great day of playoff football.
Cowboy fans will look back on the 2016 season with a measure of pride, but also with thoughts of what might have been, again. This year because of their success, the team once again picked up more new fans or “bandwagon jumpers”. “America’s Team” fans can be obnoxious. Just ask any Giant fan. Their team improved greatly with the passing of the torch from Romo to Zak Prescott, while Elliott had a great rookie year, but when it counted most, yesterday’s mental errors and a slow start served to hinder the team in its quest for a sixth championship. This squad, still needs to learn how to win in the playoffs, and Cowboy fans need to realize that their team has won one playoff game since Bill Clinton was in office, but yet they still act like they are perennial Super Bowl contenders. NOT!
