Last-second field goal carries Packers to victory over Cowboys 34-31

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers celebrates after winning an NFL divisional playoff football game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday Jan. 15 2017 in Arlington Texas. The Packers won 34-31

Dallas was the NFC's No. 1 seed going into these playoffs, but it figured the road to the Super Bowl would go through Green Bay, figuratively, even if not literally. The Packers treated fans to a thrilling game, defeating the Cowboys 34-31 with some magic by Aaron Rodgers, Jared Cook, and Mason Crosby. "It's unreal", Crosby said. "We did make enough on second down to put us in field goal range and Dan was able to make the kick".

Cobb hauled in three touchdowns against the Giants last weekend and Adams led the team with eight receptions for 125 yards.

Meanwhile, one of his closest friends, Aaron Rodgers, had a game - and a few specific plays - for the ages.

Only the New England Patriots (who will be playing the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game) had a better season than the Cowboys had.

"He's got ice in his veins", Schum said. But after the big Packers win in Texas, there's another Rodgers making headlines. The All-Pro running back blasted Green Bay for 157 yards on 28 carries, the most rushing yards Dom Capers' defense gave up this season.

Fortunately, the protection, snap and hold made for a smooth and efficient operation.

Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman likely to shadow Atlanta WR Julio Jones
He has great help in the backfield where he can hand the ball off to not one, but two above average running backs. I understand that argument, but personally, I don't even want to see the Falcons get the NFC Championship game.

Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers throws a pass during the game against the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field on December 11, 2016 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

"You could see in his face, 'This is just another kick. I'm going to crush this, '" Schum said. "It's pretty awesome to be a part of it". But once you are done with that, remember what the Cowboys have built this season, and how it is sustainable for a while to come. No one person feels it more than others, so everyone should try to respect the site decorum and the rules.

"Our objective with that much time on the clock and with a timeout was go score a touchdown and end the game right there. We just needed another play down the stretch and we didn't get it".

The secondary just refused to make plays throughout the entire night.

I'm pulling for the Falcons and I've already got one of Panther friends threatening to "unfriend" me on social media. I'm sure Capers was concerned that with six defensive backs on the field Elliott would have a decent chance to rip off 10- to 15-yard run - the guy is that good - but it left linebacker Matt Ryan covering Dez Bryant in the slot.

"I saw him rolling to the right it was underneath coverage in front of me", Cook said. "As far as looking to the future, his teammates, his coaches, anything that we might look at building around him or those kinds of things - we got a lot of answers out there in that second half tonight".
