Miami Dolphins vs Dallas Cowboys: Miami Wins Heavyweight Clash with Walk-Off FG After Late Dak Prescott TD

Miami Dolphins clinch playoff spot with last-second win over Dallas Cowboys, as defenses dominate in a game of field goals.

The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins, both with identical 10-4 records and the league's top two scoring offenses, faced off in a game that was dominated by defense. However, both teams managed to do what they needed to secure a lead late in the game. The Dolphins ultimately clinched a playoff spot with a game-winning 29-yard field goal as time expired, marking their consecutive postseason appearance for the first time since 1997-2001. On the other hand, the Cowboys are unlikely to win the NFC East, barring the Philadelphia Eagles' continued struggles.

The game saw a total of seven field goals, with Miami's Jason Sanders contributing five successful kicks. However, it was a go-ahead touchdown pass from Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott to wide receiver Brandin Cooks that initially put Dallas in the lead. The game ultimately came down to the Dolphins' final drive, where they capitalized on a facemask penalty to set up Sanders' game-winning field goal.

The game began with a mishandled handoff between Prescott and fullback Hunter Luepke, resulting in a fumble recovery and takeaway for the Dolphins' defense. Despite this, the Cowboys managed to find the end zone early in the game. However, Miami's offense proved to be more consistent, with Sanders' reliable kicking contributing significantly to their victory.

The Cowboys struggled to find their footing, with an offensive rut in the second quarter and a series of punts at the start of the second half. Although they managed to score 13 points in their final three possessions, including a touchdown, their inability to move the ball earlier in the game proved to be their downfall.

In the end, it was Lamb's explosive 49-yard catch-and-run touchdown that stood out as the most exciting play of the game. The Dolphins will face the Baltimore Ravens, while the Cowboys will take on the Detroit Lions in their final games of the regular season.
