Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Allen Hurns suffers gruesome ankle injury
Jan 07 2019
AT&T stadium fell silent about halfway through the opening quarter, when Cowboys wide-receiver Allen Hurns completed a pass from quarterback Dak Prescott as he initiated contact with the Seahawks' defence. Antwaun Woods made a huge stop in the backfield on first down, bowling over Chris Carson for a loss of eight yards. If not for the drive starting at their own ten, Seattle would've been in position to take the lead with a touchdown on this drive. Janikowski did not return and rookie punter Michael Dickson took over.
A fourth-quarter K.J. Wright interception in the end zone seemed like it would be the turning point in a memorable comeback postseason win for the Seahawks. Another long catch by Lockett - a pretty spectacular one at that - put the Seahawks near field goal territory with the two-minute warning bearing down.
Lockett wasn't done making big plays, though.
Dallas' defense came through again, though, forcing a punt and giving Elliott and Prescott a highlight play apiece on a drive to Prescott's 1-yard sneak for a 24-14 lead with 2:08 remaining.
Beasley soon returned, but was seen limping heavily on the ankle.
An ugly win like the one the Cowboys just earned has become something of Dak Prescott's resolve.
Unlike in his first playoff experience, the Cowboys weren't chasing in the second half, kept in each contest this season by a tremendously well-coached and talented defense.
Since the Philadelphia Eagles as the lowest seed can only face the New Orleans Saints, the Rams will get to host either the Dallas Cowboys or Chicago Bears Saturday night, depending on how Sunday turns out.
