The Dallas Cowboys have tried their best to inflict pain on the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football.
"It's not necessarily (Stafford's) injury or anything of that nature, I don't think, but the really important thing is for us to make certain that we get out of that and get ourselves in position to play well", coach Jim Caldwell said. The Lions have also not won a playoff game since 1991, when they beat these same Cowboys in the Divisional Round 38-6 before losing in the NFC Championship Game against the Washington Redskins. Dak Prescott hit his No. 1 wide receiver with the pitch and Bryant went out wide left.
Bryant became the first Cowboys player with a TD pass and TD catch in the same game since Danny White against the Cleveland Browns in 1985. Bryant also threw for his first career passing touchdown on a 10-yard end-around pass to Jason Witten.
Meanwhile, Dallas fans have been wondering if they would finally get to see Tony Romo on the field this season.
The Lions are so desperate at this point on the offensive line that in the biggest game of the season, the Lions brought in rookie Joe Dahl to take his first offensive snaps of his National Football League career.
QB Dak Prescott had his fourth game of the season with three touchdown passes and completed 15 of 20 passes for 212 yards.

The rapid pace of gains has also raised fears that prices, which topped their bubble-era high a year ago, could overinflate again. The FHFA's report uses home sales price information from mortgages sold to, or guaranteed by, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac .
The Lions scored touchdowns on their first three possessions. Here is a look at the team grades for the Dallas Cowboys. "You have to be as technically sound as them and take what they give you, and just kind of grind them down".
But when the Cowboys defense finally settled in, they shut out the Lions in second half.
The Cowboys will no doubt continue to look to their strong running game and efficient pass offense as they begin to prepare for the Playoffs. Zenner kept pace with Ezekiel Elliott and found the end zone twice in the first two quarters.
Eric Ebron had his best statistical day on Monday, setting career highs with eight catches for 93 yards.
Stafford had a 1-yard scoring plunge against the Cowboys, but was sacked four times. He had four receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns. He likes to make plays and try and turn the game for his team. Bogut seemed confused about why he had been called for a flagrant foul that helped spur a game-changing 16-0 run by the Rockets in the second quarter.
Elliot has gone 1,551 yards for 13 touchdowns, which is vast for a rookie. In the first half against the Cowboys Zenner ran for 64 yards and two touchdowns.
