The Dallas Cowboys edged out the Detroit Lions 20-19 in a nail-biting finish to their Saturday night clash, which saw Detroit score with 23 seconds left but denied the go-ahead two-point conversion.  Jared Goff threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Amon-Ra St Brown in the dying embers of the game, then adding the two-point conversion with a successful pass to offensive lineman Taylor Decker in the end zone.

Goff finished with 271 passing yards, one TD and two picks.CeeDee Lamb caught 13 passes for 227 yards, including a 92-yard touchdown in the first quarter that nudged Dallas ahead after the Lions had opened the scoring with a 41-yard Michael Badgley field goal on their first possession.  Dallas Cowboys’ Dak Prescott produced an unbelievable 92-yard touchdown pass to CeeDee Lamb.

Detroit then drove down inside the Cowboys’ five-yard line after a successful fake punt play but wound up turning the ball over on downs.  Only with 4:34 remaining in the third quarter did the scoring resume, with the Lions taking the lead on a David Montgomery three-yard touchdown run up the middle, to cap off a 13-play, 74-yard drive.  Brandon Aubrey made a 51-yard field goal with 23 seconds left in the quarter to tie the score 10-10, before Detroit regained the lead off the back of another Badgley kick early in the fourth, this one from 30 yards – set up by a 63-yard completion from Goff to Jameson Williams.

The Cowboys responded with a 75-yard scoring drive, capped by an eight-yard TD toss from Prescott to Brandin Cooks with 7:20 left.

Later in the quarter, Donovan Wilson claimed a crucial interception of Goff at Detroit’s 29-yard line to help set up an Aubrey 43-yard field goal, to stretch the Cowboys’ lead to seven with 1:41 remaining.  The Lions (11-5) would find the end zone again but, rather than attempt to tie the game and force overtime with an extra point, they went for the two-point conversion and the win, only to be ultimately denied by the officials.Following that, at 9.25pm, the wobbling Kansas City Chiefs (9-6) will look to end their poor run of form when they take on the Jake Browning-led Cincinnati Bengals (8-7), who have hopes of keeping their slim playoff chances alive following a heavy defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Sunday Night Football then sees the Green Bay Packers (7-8) resume their playoff hunt when they meet their divisional rivals Minnesota Vikings (7-8), who currently occupy the eighth seed just outside of the wild card berths while owning the tie-breaker over Green Bay – kick-off in that one at 1.20am, Monday morning.
