1. Cowboys win ninth straight– September 11th, 2016 was the last time the Cowboys lost a football game. Since then, a World Series champion was crowned, Brady came back from his suspension and there was something called an election. This was a tough test for the Cowboys with a revamped Ravens team coming to town and they have been great at stopping the run. They did a good job at shutting Zeke down and the gameplan was simple: put the game in Prescott’s hands and that’s exactly what happened and he took over. For the first time in franchise history, the Cowboys have won nine straight games.
2. Redskins hand Packers fourth straight loss– Ten months ago, these two met in the Wild Card round of the playoffs and Green Bay simply dominated and had their way with them. Both teams would need to enter this one with a chip on their shoulder especially Green Bay and how they’ve looked in their last few games. Washington was looking to get their revenge and in their last set of games, they’ve been quietly going about business and are in the thick of the NFC East race. The Packers struggles continued once again and the Redskins handed them yet another loss. Now, Green Bay sits at 4-6.
3. Minnesota snaps losing streak– After a 5-0 start to the season, the Vikings have struggled big time losing four games in a row and they would eventually lose their first place spot in the NFC North. This was a big game for them with November coming to an end. They beat a Cardinals team that just hasn’t been the same compared to what we saw last year. The Vikings recorded takeaways and put pressure on Carson Palmer throughout the game.
4. Dolphins win fifth straight– The Miami Dolphins have been rolling and it looks like everything it starting to come together under Adam Gase. Last week, they won a tight game in San Diego and this week, they were facing Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams. It wasn’t a pretty win, but it was a win nonetheless. The Dolphins look good right now.
5. Oklahoma steamrolls West Virginia– It was a marquee battle between two of the best in the Big-12. Oklahoma still entered the night on the outside looking in of the playoff picture and West Virginia was looking to make a statement. Oklahoma got off to such a quick start and never looked back as they held on to win 56-28.
