🏈Cowboys: The Cowboys kept their playoff hopes alive until the final moments, but sadly, a new year did not give us a new Andy Dalton. With just over a minute remaining in the game, Dalton threw his seventh interception of the season. The pass was picked off in the endzone, securing a 23–19 win for the New York Giants. Womp womp.

  • The good news is that Pro Bowl QB Dak Prescott reportedly intends to stick with the team heading into next season. Prescott suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5, but will be ready to go for 2021.
  • And the ’Boys already locked in a key member of the offense prior to the end of the regular season, signing a multi-year contract extension with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore on Saturday. Here’s how we’re feeling about next year, Cowboys Nation.

🏀Mavericks: The Mavs couldn’t lift our spirits on the hardwood, suffering a 118–108 loss to the Chicago Bulls last night. They’ll look to right the ship against a potentially James Harden-less Houston Rockets squad tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
