Dallas Cowboys to keep NFC East top-seed hopes alive against Titans

Funviralpark 1 year ago 0 3

The Dallas Cowboys still hold on to their NFC East hopes.

Dallas beat the Tennessee Titans 27-13 in the final Thursday night game of the season.

But not only are their division hopes alive, they have a (very) outside chance at the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Dallas needs to win next week and the 13-2 Philadelphia Eagles need to lose their last two games (which gives Dallas a division). But Dallas needs to lose one of his next two games for Minnesota and San Francisco to move up the standings.

Tennessee entered the starting lineup on Thursday with third-string QB Joshua Dobbs without Derrick Henry, who is treating a hip injury. It should be noted that Thursday’s results mean literally nothing for the Titans – next week’s matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars will determine who wins his AFC South and who goes home.

Dallas was given an opportunity and they didn’t waste it.

The Titans couldn’t move the ball much on offense for most of the first half. Ezekiel Elliott scored the first touchdown of the game in the first quarter and Dallas added a field goal early in the second quarter. Tennessee was able to cut the deficit to seven, but Prescott threw a pick again as Dallas was down the field for a two-minute drill. I had the ball at the opposite 41-yard line. After an impressive catch-and-run by Treylon Burks, Randy Bullock scored his goal down the 29-yard field to make him 10–6 at halftime.

At the start of the second half, a defensive pass interference moved the Cowboys from their own side of the field to the Titans’ 6-yard line, so Prescott threw a 1 off to tight end Dalton Schultz to put Dallas up 11. The Titans’ best drive and first touchdown put Robert Woods in third with just over two minutes remaining in the game to make it 17-13.
