Dak Prescott rallied the Dallas Cowboys to an National Football League playoff victory over Seattle on Saturday, while Andrew Luck powered the Indianapolis Colts into the second round with a victory at Houston. They have to fly back to the west coast before heading back to Foxborough to face off with the New England Patriots next week.
The NFL playoffs kick continue Sunday with the remaining Wild Card round games.
In their win over the Ravens the Chargers were dominating until a late fourth quarter surge by Baltimore.
Luck went 19-for-32 for 222 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in an uneven but productive-enough afternoon at NRG Stadium, powering the Colts to a 21-7 win over the Texans that vaults them from the No. 6 seed to a chance to play in the AFC Championship Game. Still an incredibly young team, I don't think anyone expected the Colts to be in the playoffs this season, but here they are about to face a very talented Houston Texans team, led by the surging Deshaun Watson and a dominant defense. It was the first playoff win for Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott on their second try after losing a divisional game as rookies two years ago.

Engineers had to wait in nervous anticipation for hours as the signals travelled back to Earth following the flyby at 12:33 a.m. Based on observations of similar-sized solar system objects, Ultima Thule will nearly certainly display impact craters.
At Houston, Luck flipped a six-yard touchdown toss to Eric Ebron and an 18-yard touchdown pass to Dontrelle Inman, while Mack scored on a two-yard run as the Colts leaped ahead 21-0 at halftime. The Jaguars peaked with that victory over the Patriots, going on to lose eight of their next nine games to lock up the under 9 wins in a 24-21 loss to the Bills in week 12.
Well at least for the first playoff game it should be a breeze.
The Indianapolis Colts, as Seattle pulled in by a Wildcard in the Playoffs in the first round, and significantly fewer problems than Dallas. The victor of that game will then take on the victor of the Chiefs vs. Colts divisional game to determine the AFC championship game.
The lowest NFC seed remaining will play the New Orleans Saints on January 13th.
