Rodgers, Packers Clock Prescott, Cowboys

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys had their season come to an end last night in a last second loss to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

The rookie sensation quarterback led the Cowboys onto the field to face the veteran Rodgers, last night. The game was immediately tilted in the favor of Green Bay, with several early scores. However, by the fourth quarter, Dallas had begun cutting away at the large deficit ahead of them. Eventually, Prescott and the Cowboys had tied the crucially important playoff game.

In the last seconds of the game however, Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby kicked a 51-yard field goal, which sent the Packers to the next round of the playoffs with a score of 34-31.

The Green Bay Packers will now advance to the next round of the NFL playoffs, where they will face the Atlanta Falcons.

The Houston Texans also lost their playoff game to the New England Patriots this weekend, 34-16.
