It was a valiant effort by Dak Prescott and the Cowboys in one of the greatest playoff games I ever seen.
  Unfortunately, for Dallas too much Aaron Rodgers stole the show.
NFL dot com reports the Green Bay Packers are back in the NFC title game.
Mason Crosby's 56- and 51-yard field goals late in the fourth quarter sent Green Bay past the Dallas Cowboys, 34-31, in Saturday's Divisional Round matchup. 

Dak Prescott led a 15-point Cowboys comeback, culminating in a 52-yard Dan Bailey field goal with 44 seconds left. But Aaron Rodgers saved his best for last, capping off a 43-yard, 32-second drive with an impossible 36-yard sideline bullet to Jared Cook. The play set up Crosby's winning kick with three seconds left.
