Dallas clinched the NFC East title thanks to Philadelphia's victory over the New York Giants Thursday night.
They were back above.500, and on their way to competing for the division title that will be up for grabs Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Plus, given how Elliott and Prescott have performed like veterans, it will take a team with a QB that's already won in the playoffs to trump them. A Green Bay Packers offense that scores 27 points a game is a potential matchup as well. The scheduled kickoff for this post-Christmas Day affair offers a variety of opinions on not only whom will play but how important the game is for both teams. But, with DeAndre Levy back in the lineup, the Lions have the personnel to load up against the run.

More than that, this game is of massive importance to the Detroit Lions quest to make the playoffs, so we know they will be working hard tonight, because they have their hopes of their season on the line. Robinson, a Texas native, was drafted in large part because of his run-stopping prowess, and the Lions are counting on him to help contain Ezekiel Elliott.
Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, who graduated from Highland Park High School in Dallas with Stafford in 2006, attended the game. He had four receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns. Coupled with his two receiving touchdowns, Bryant was a significant factor in the Cowboys' 42-21 win in Detroit. He leads Detroit with 119 tackles. Late in the game on a crucial third down play, Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens was penalized for pass interference on Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew. Rather than pitching it to Elliott, Dak Prescott pitched it to Bryant. He rushed for a career-high 159 yards last week.
His first touchdown catch was also historically significant because it moved him past Cowboys Hall-of-Famer Michael Irvin on the all-time touchdown list.
