UPDATE: Packers clinch playoff berth; playoff scenarios for division & home field

However, a source told ESPN that the quarterback does not have a fracture.

The Dallas Cowboys need a win over the Los Angeles Rams Sunday afternoon to move to.500 on the season and maintain their status as the first-place squad in a disgusting NFC East.

The Cowboys and Eagles are tied for the NFC East lead at 7-7, and Dallas advances to the postseason with a victory.

Prescott injured his should during a 7-yard run on the Cowboys' sixth play of the game last Sunday. "We haven't been consistent enough really throughout this season".

A year after playing in the Super Bowl, the Rams seemingly have only one way to make a third consecutive playoff appearance. He also rushed for two yards on three carries.

Packers are 11-3 after Sunday's game. On a roll out to the right, Prescott was tackled by Rams linebacker Clay Matthews, who landed hard on Prescott's shoulders. The Cowboys kicked off to start the game and were set to kick off again to open the second half.

Those two TDs essentially made the coin toss question moot, but the Twitter storm had long since raged. Anderson said a couple of times the Cowboys wanted to kick, creating the confusion.

"I'm getting better, simple as that", Prescott said. Worst of all the Rams defensive personnel were not ball hawks causing just 21 turnovers a year after causing 41. We pulled the audio. "We got beat on".

But what did he say.

"In a way", Prescott said when asked if the team re-established its identity. "We know the situation" he said, via the team's official website.

The Cowboys outscored the Rams 28-7 in the first half.

"I would have been pretty ambitious when we started this season to think we could go out here and play against the Rams the way that our running game did tonight", owner Jerry Jones said. "I do know he has a little injury to his index finger".

Dallas looked more like that early season version. "Like 300? Close to it?" We know how good our offensive line is. He called the pain level "annoying" and claimed "I've dealt with a lot more pain [in the past]".

Prescott hit Tavon Austin with a 59-yard touchdown pass on the first drive of the rally.

Goff completed 33 of 51 passes for 284 yards, two scores and an interception in the loss. He finished the game with 117 yards rushing on 24 carries and two touchdowns.

Thanks to this win, the Cowboys have reignited their NFC East title hopes. Maher was just 1 of 5 from 40-49 yards.

The Cowboys scored first near the end of the first quarter when Prescott and tight end Jason Witten combined on several completions, including Witten's spectacular one-handed catch for a touchdown.

The injury could not come at a worse time for the Cowboys, as the victor of this weekend's matchup against the Eagles will likely determine the victor of the NFC East.
