Cowboys clinch playoff spot, despite being blown out by Bills

"It was all good just a week ago" to quote the legend Jay-Z that's all I can say about them as they came in flying after the colossal 33-13 win over Philadelphia. The NFL’s top-scoring offense was limited to a field goal for 57 minutes. Dallas is 7-0 at home, where they outscored opponents 279-108, but fell to 3-4 on the road, where they been outscored 156-152.

On a positive note, the Cowboys (10-4) clinched their third straight playoff berth before kickoff

thanks to losses by Green Bay and Atlanta on Sunday and Detroit beating Denver on Saturday. But nothing else happened right for Dallas, which fell a game behind NFC-best San Francisco.

Dak Prescott went 21 of 34 for 134 yards with an interception and was sacked 3 times. The offense finished with a season-low 195 yards.

Buffalo dominated all game with ground and pound style. Buffalo rushed for 266 yards and 3 touchdowns with 179 of those yards and a TD attributed by James Cook. They held the ball for 10 minutes longer than Dallas and had 28 first downs to the Cowboys’ 14.

When asked about the loss Dak said, "They got up on us and continued to control the ball, control the possession, kill the clock. And we didn’t convert on our third downs, which we have been great at all year." That’s been our way of winning games. So, they beat us in the formula.”
