Cowboys fight past Seahawks for NFC wild-card win

The New England Patriots have made a series of transactions ahead of this Sunday's playoff meeting with the Los Angeles Chargers, including placing tight end Jacob Hollister on injured reserve and promoting tight end Stephen Anderson to the team's 53-man roster.

The lowest AFC seed remaining will play the Kansas City Chiefs on January 12th. That game is scheduled to kick off at 4:40 p.m.

The Cowboys all but put the game away with an 11-play, 63-yard drive, capped by Prescott's 1-yard score, that took 5:14 off the clock before Seattle's late TD.

If New England hopes to make it out of the divisional round, they'll need to do two things above all else on Sunday: keep Brady upright against the Chargers pass rush/interior pressure and establish the ground game. The Chargers were the ninth-best defense in terms of yards allowed; the Patriots finished a distant 21st in the same metric. It was the only quarter of Wilson's career, including playoffs, in which he had negative yards passing. Anderson also appeared in two 2016 postseason contests, but did not accrue any statistics. This is her fourth season as an official in the league. New England still has utility back James White, who contributed 425 rushing yards and had team highs of 87 receptions, 751 yards and seven TDs.

The NFC game will presumably be an even bigger defensive struggle.

It was just the third playoff victory for the Cowboys this century, after they won wild-card round games in 2009 and 2014. So, to get an opportunity again to go against them 11 years after we had that opportunity in the 2007 season, yeah, it's awesome.

The over/under already has seen substantial movement, quickly coming off the open of 47 points down to 45.5.

Philly plays at New Orleans (13-3) next Sunday.
