It’s not everyday that meme makers get to react to the Dallas Cowboys winning a playoff game. But once every few years it happens, this time at the expense of the Seattle Seahawks.
Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott delivered in the postseason for the first time in their first 3 years in the league, putting the painful loss two years ago to the Green Bay Packers behind them. Prescott let loose in the second half, Elliott was fantastic from the get go, and the Cowboys move on to the Division Round, a stage they haven’t been past since the Super Bowl years of the 1990’s.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks failed to undermine the Cowboys defense. Russell Wilson was limited to a weird offensive gameplan by Pete Carroll, who stuck to his run-run-pass order which worked pretty well in the regular season, but rarely got things going against one of the best defensive units in the league.
The Seahawks kicking situation didn’t help, be it field goals being missed or desparate onside kicks going the wrong way. The Cowboys also lost Allen Hurns to a horrific injury, ending what has been a disappointing season for the wide receiver in Dallas.
