>> new york won again today. the giants who have beaten you twice. they own the tiebreak. knowing that coming into this ga >> just win. stay focused. look for it and win. >> congratulations, dak. >> thank you. >> let's turn over to zeke. another big running night for you. but let's lk decision to jump into the salvation army pot. what made you decide to do that? >> i mean, just sitting there in the end zone. perfect celebration. but i mean, we should work the salvation army. they're one of our biggest partners. had to show them a little bit of love. >> would you do it again? didn't sound like your coach was really happy about it. >> he wasn't happy about it. with the penalty for special teams. him or the special teams coach were not happy. i can't keep making them mad. >> one person you can't be mad at or one group, is your offensive line. runehind this group? >> it's a great group of guys. hard workers. every day, they come to work, no
matter how sore you are. they get banged up. we play physical. and teams know we're going to run the ball. week in and week out, we rely on those guys. and i love them. >> congratulations on the win. >> thank you. >> bob? >> okay, michele, thanks. let's look at the nfc playoff picture. with tonight's win, the cowboys take a big step towards securing the number one seed. dallas needs just one win or one giants loss to lock up home fields advantage throughout the playoffs in the nfc. the lions are just a game up on the packers in the north. green why has won four-straight. they will play in detroit in week 17. and a game that will likely decide the division. the detroit loss also moved atlanta into the third spot. and the falcons are a game up in the south. tampa has lost control over the final wild card. if washington wins out, washington would be in. we turn to tony dungy. there were a lot of questions about dallas and tampa bay coming in.
what do you make of tonight's results? >> well, for tampa, bob, you see a team with a lot of talent, a lot of energy. but they're not quite ready yet. four turnovers. missed opportunities. really cost them the game. on the other side of the coin, the cowboys, one question got answered tonight. should dak prescott be the quarterback? obviously, he should. 32 for 36. he answered that question. but i think all of those nfc contenders that you read off there could take something from this game. prescot played as well as he could play. ezekiel elliott had a career-high rushing. tampa turned it over four times. they had the ball with a chance to win on the last drive. if the cowboys are the number one seed, people are not going to fear going in there. not to say it's going to be an easy game. but dallas is not unbeatable at home. >> let's switch conferences to the afc. new england has clinched the east. and oakland is also in the playoffs. in good position for a bye,
thanks for the chiefs loss to tennessee today. miami controls its playoff outcome. if the dolphins win the last two, they will be in the playoffs. pittsburgh and baltimore play on christmas. if the steelers win, they win the division. the ravens would win the division if they win out. tony, what do you expect? >> that pittsburgh/baltimore game should be tremendous. both team knows each other very well. a lot of playoff experience. and they're really mirror images. they both are playing very good defense right now. they have super bowl quarterbacks. they both have big play receivers. but the difference, to me, is that the running back position. le'veon bell, i think gives the pittsburgh steelers an edge. should be a great game. i think bell could be the difference. >> tony, thanks. you're allowed to take the rest of the night off. busy few days. thursday in seattle. saturday in new jersey. tonight, you're done. for a while, at least.
let's turn to mike florio. >> thank you, bob. >> a lot of news c the jacksonville/houston game. the jaguars fired coach gus bradley. and the texans benched brock osweiler in favor of tom savage and went on to win the game. is that a change we can expect to see next week? >> after the game, bill o'brien refused to commit to any specific quarterback. but this is a shocker because brock osweiler was the big ticket off-season investment. million guaranteed. he was supposed to turn the texans into a championship contender. and one thing o'brien did say, they're not going to make the decision based upon quarterback salary. it does open the door for savage moving forward. the door is closed, as you mentioned, on gus bradley in jacksonville. they made the decision, after last sunday's loss to the vikings. and they wanted to start the search. and they did not want to start
the search while gus bradley was still the head coach out of respect to him. they decided time to move on. we'll end the relationship. we'll begin the search. and that's why the move happened today. >> a lot of people are wondering about this. they're on the road. they lose the game. is he on the charter back? isn't that an awkward situation? >> it's either that or give him a ticket to fly back on his own. they brought him back on the charter. he had to know that this was coming. they were very patient with him. and some say they give him more chances than they should have. now, when you go forward, should be an attractive job. to have a young defense. they get somebody to fix the offense, this is a playoff contender as soon as next year. >> you can catch mike tomorrow morning on pro football talk live from 7:00 to 9:00 eastern, followed by the dan patrick show, with matt ryan as a best. final score, cowboys 26, bucs 20. al and cris wrap it up after this.

your day with us. denver and kansas city. denver would have to win out to have a chance. they dug a big hole losing to new england. and oakland is now on top. if oakland and kansas city wind up with the same records, since kansas city won the season series, they would win the divisions. a lot at stake in this game. >> all i know is the denver/kansas city game we did earlier, was fantastic. came down to a doink off of one upright. almost hit the other upright at the end of overtime. and it was terrific. we hope we get one just that good. >> it's philly and new york. and it will be denver and kansas city. nose are our two games next week. meanwhile here, the dallas cowboys go to 12-2. tampa bay's winning streak is snapped at five. as dallas wins the game. final score is 26-20. al michaels, cris collinsworth, michele tafoya. george hill, andy freelen,
