Dallas Cowboys Win Playoff Game: With their second dominating win over the visiting Philadelphia Eagles in six days, the Dallas Cowboys won their first playoff game since 1996 with a 34-14 victory Saturday night. They advance to play Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings on the road next week. Quarterback Tony Romo threw for 244 yards and 2 touchdowns and Felix Jones ran a 73-yard touchdown that helped put the game out of reach.

Good win by the Cowboys. They look strong.

The Cowboys looked very good. I'm glad the game is in Minnesota next week, I don't think the Vikes would stand a chance if the game was in Dallas. #4 and team will need to be ready.

Hard to believe this is the first time I've been able to talk about a Cowboys playoff victory in the entire history of SportsFilter.

If they bring that pass rush to Minnesota, Brett Favre's going to get his biggest challenge of the season.

Dallas has been a painful obstacle in Favre's career over the decades. It has been very hard for him to go to Dallas and get a win there. Right up through 2007, when he got knocked out of the game.

He's fortunate the Cowboys are coming to his facility.

I would like to ask the television producers a favor in advance. Could you just go ahead and not show Phillips and Childress on camera during the game?

We know who they are. We just don't want to see them or be reminded of their presence. Kind of wrecks the viewing experience.

If you have to show a coach on screen, put up some vintage footage of Stram.

Same with Jones, please! I think there must be a stipulation in the TV contract that they have to show Jones so many times on camera during a game. I think he gets more camera time than most players.

Without a doubt, the Vikings O-line will have to step it up. I think this is probably the key to the game. If Favre has time to throw we'll be alright.

I totally agree on a ban on showing Jones on TV. When Jones gets more coverage than the Dallas cheerleaders you know something is wrong.

Don't worry about Jerry Jones. If they keep putting his face on TV, sooner or later, Dick Tracy will see him and have him picked up and brought to HQ.

Reminds me more of this.

Finally.... and of all teams to smack down the Eagles and their rowdy fans. I think Donovan McNabs best moves were coming out of the tunnel. What the hell was that?

... And thus began the Telemanjaro era.

I think the Cowboys are going to destroy Minnesota. Dallas is peaking at exactly the right time, and Minny is unfortunately a different team now with all their injuries.

Actually, I think the 'Boys can walk into New Orleans or Arizona/Green Bay and whomp that damn team too.

(I'm currently a big fan after my bets last night.)

It is fitting, isn't it? The load that has been lifted off of Wade and Tony's shoulders was pretty large, and both deserve much credit for their recent run.
The play of both lines has been great, and the D, under Wade's tutelage, has really stepped it up a notch... I like their chances next week. Despite Jerry's reflective forehead and orange hair.

The Eagles, Giants and Cowboys always give each other the best (and most painful) smackdowns. I love the geographical mismatch that put the Cowboys in the NFC East.

Aww, the poor Washington team.
