The Cowboys edged the Seahawks with a 24-22 victory in the NFC Wild Card on Saturday, but Dallas bettors weren't as fortunate, partly because of a key injury. for the Seahawks.

First, Elliott stiff-armed Shaquill Griffin on a 17-yard run to get inside the 20, then Prescott scrambled up the middle before a head-over-heels hit from Tedric Thompson at the Seattle 1. The Cowboys rode the legs of Ezekiel Elliott, who finished the season as the NFL's leading rusher with 1,434 yards.

Prescott scored on the next play. He limped off the field as the Cowboys took a 10-6 lead into the half.

Janikowski was also injured briefly during a game against Kansas City two weeks ago, compelling Dickson to attempt two drop kick kickoffs.

After Wilson ran for 4 yards for a touchdown and Mike Davis' 2-point conversion run put Seattle up 14-10 late in the third quarter, Prescott led a 67-yard drive to put the Cowboys back in front for good.
