It was touch and go for a while, but your Dallas Cowboys held on to defeat the Seattle Seahawks 24-22 to advance to the NFC Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. The atmosphere inside AT&T Stadium was electric, as Dak, Zeke and Dem Boyz got only their 3rd playoff win since 1996. Dak became the first Cowboys quarterback ever to have a rushing and passing touchdown in the same playoff game. The Cowboys will now be focused on today's other NFC Wild Card Game between the Eagles and the Bears. If the Eagles win, the Cowboys head to LA to face the Rams next week. If the Bears win, the Cowboys would head to New Orleans to face the Saints. Go Eagles?
Here are some highlights from my unique perspective as In-Stadium Host for the Cowboys, including my postgame victory interview with linebacker Jaylon Smith, who had 7 tackles on the night. He broke up a pass on the Seattle’s first offensive drive, forcing a three-and-out. That set an early tone as the Seahawks converted just 2 of 13 third downs.
