Brett Favre became the first 40 year old to claim victory in the playoffs, leading his Vikings to win over the Dallas Cowboys 34-3 yesterday in Minneapolis. The 19-year veteran picked apart the Cowboys defense through all four quarters, completing 15 of 24 passes for 234 yards and four TD’s. “This is what I came back for,” said Favre with a smile after the big win. “Probably the most fatigued I got today was celebrating.”
Head coach Brad Childress didn’t hesitate to address the many predictions in favor of the Cowboys. “The Tasmanian devils were coming from Dallas that were about to bombard the state of Minnesota and run through us like Sherman through the South,” he said. “All of us felt it quite palpably.” The Vikings are set to advance to the NFC Championship against the top-ranked New Orleans Saints away at the Superdome.

The Minnesota Vikings (12-4) after a well deserved first-round bye week are set to host the Dallas Cowboys (11-5) Sunday in the NFC Divisional playoff round at 12:00 PM ET. Quarterback Brett Favre and his offense averaged 29.4 points per game compared to the Cowboys 22.6, but Tony Romo and crew have really turned things around in the final stretch of their 2009-2010 campaign.
Favre has said for the Cowboys to represent a team that nobody wishes to compete against right now. “I mean, this is the playoffs. Rarely can you play badly or average and win,” said Favre. “So, we are aware of how we need to play. In the fact that we are playing maybe, in my opinion, the hottest team in football right now. Just from a confidence level, from just watching them play, they are making plays, they know they are making plays, they are confident.”
The Cowboys have lost their last three games at the Metrodome that includes a 1999 wild-card playoff contest. They last claimed victory there back in 1995. Dallas may have the momentum but Minnesota will expect to negate this advantage early and often through home-field advantage. Purchase your Vikings vs. Cowboys tickets right here at AceTicket.com!
The Dallas Cowboys finally claimed victory in the playoffs for the first time since December of 1996 Saturday night over the Philadelphia Eagles 34-14 in Arlington, TX. Following a scoreless first quarter the Cowboys really found their rhythm, posting 27 points in the second while holding Philly to just one score.
“It’s just … rewarding,” said QB Tony Romo. “It makes me proud of the guys in there – fighting, grinding, staying committed to the approach. I’m happy for the guys, happy for Wade, happy for Jerry.”
Felix Jones produced a 73 yard run in the third quarter for six, marking the Cowboys final TD of the contest. The Eagles scored again in the fourth but the game was already well out of reach at that point. Dallas is set to play Minnesota in the NFC Divisional Round next Sunday at 1:00 PM.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys will square off this Saturday for the second time in seven days at Cowboy Stadium. Last week Dallas dominated the Eagles 24-0 and earned the rights to call themselves NFC East Division champs in the process. Eagles head coach Andy Reid is certainly looking forward to Saturday’s contest following his team’s lack of production during Week 17.
“They played better than we played,” said Reid. “They coached better than we coached. You get back to business and you do it in a very matter-of-fact way. If you get caught up in all the what ifs and this and that, then you’re making a mistake. We don’t have time for that. It’s a hurried-up week and you have to get right back on the horse and figure out how to not get bucked off again.”
This year the Cowboys have the advantage on the offensive end, as they usually rack up 400 yards per game to Philadelphia’s 358. The Eagles are slightly better defensively, giving up just six fewer yards on average. Cowboys vs. Eagles tickets are now available!
