Best NFL Week 17 Games: Cowboys lead Titans on TNF


Week 17 of NFL the season kicks off with the Dallas Cowboys taking on the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football.

This is the last time we can see professional football on a Thursday until next season, and the game will have huge implications for both teams. Tennessee is fighting to keep its playoff hopes alive as a bubble team on the brink of extinction. At 7-8, the Titans are tied with four other AFC teams and need a big win to climb to the top of the roster heading into Sunday’s slate.

Dallas has already clinched a playoff berth, but is still aiming to win the NFC East. The Boys will give up the top spot in the division if Philadelphia wins on Sunday, but for now they are focused on the things they can control. And these are the Tennessee Titans.

Here are the best games!

Dallas Cowboys vs. Tennessee Titans

Up to the gut!

When in doubt, smash it to the ground with Zeke. The boys’ first possession was a fruitless ploy, but they had their second chance to score, scoring seven on a 10-play, 60-yard drive that ended with a vintage growl from Ezekiel Elliott down the middle.

Go the other way

Dropped passes have been a problem for the boys throughout the season, and it bit their backs again when a bouncing ball jumped out of the hands of Peyton Hendershot, before falling into the lap of the Tennessee safety , Kevin Byard.

Buy one…get another

After Byard grabbed Tennessee’s first takeaway, he slid past another pass attempt from Prescott to run away with his second INT of the first half. The crucial grab put the Titans in perfect position to strike from goal range, bringing them within four at halftime.

TE Spike!

After a huge pass interference call put the Cowboys in the red zone, Kellen Moore drafted a play call for one of his favorite close-range targets, and Dalton Schultz confirmed his confidence with a score without an appointment. The TD put Dallas up 17-6.

Schultz advised

The Prescott-Schultz connection is getting stronger, and it again gave points early in the fourth, as the No. 4 dialed in a nice lobber to No. 86 in the end zone to give Dallas a 24-minute lead. -13. And Schultz was sure to tell his defender about his shortcomings.
