So not smart by indie.
We will be breaking down and going through this game here in a minute, talking about this Sunday Night football game between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs.
But I want to just break down how these final games were finishing as we always do here.
Andy Dalton had just converted a big first down to, um, Ari Cooper brings it down to the Minnesota 14 yard line.
And now Dallas, who's trailing 2024? We were at the two minute warning, so they're coming out of the two minute warning here.

We're at the 18 yard line, an adult in the shotgun.
He takes the snap.
It's caught by Ezekiel Elliott.

They were punching, punching, punching at the ball he holds onto.
It falls down about the four yard line.
The Vikings now take a time out as we get to about one minute and 50 seconds left in the game.
It's first and goal for Dallas, and as we're in that time out, I'm just going to switch over to the Green Bay indie game to see what's happening over there.

And here comes Andy Dalton.

Andy calling out directions and he takes the snap.
He's looking in the end zone.
He throws it and it's almost intercepted right at the goal line.
A bad throw and bad decision by Andy Dalton goes unpunished, and Dallas is lucky not to see that ball picked off.
He was trying to get his receiver over the top, threw it behind him.
He came across nobody bit.
Andy, Mrs, um, A little bit of a bump as he tried to come across.
It could have been a pass interference, and he knows how lucky he is.
Second in goal here, the two and seven Cowboys got the four and five Vikings.
Andy Dalton in the pistol.
He's gonna hand it off to Ezekiel out.
He's gonna bring it up the middle.
He's gonna go down.
That's gonna bring up third and goal from both the two yard line.
Dallas trailing Minnesota 28 to 24 1 43 left in the game.
Minnesota takes another time out as they want an opportunity.
If Dallas can score a touchdown here to go down the field and perhaps score a field goal or a touchdown, It will be a field goal to tie a touchdown toe win.
We could see our second game goto overtime today as we're in this commercial time out, I do want to remind everybody but what's happened elsewhere today, Washington defeated Cincinnati 22 90 Dallas is back.
On the field now is Ego Elliott behind Andy Dalton, Dalton in the pistol, A man in motion for Dallas fixed a handoff to Zeke over the middle, touchdown Dallas And that Schultz, who pulls it in and on third and goal with a minute 37 left in the game.

That puts up Dallas up 30 to 28 prior to the extra point.
Dallas able to come all the way back, but Minnesota still has an opportunity to try to get out there and take this game back in their possession again.

If they kick the field goal will have to get a touchdown in a good run.
We'll set up a second and five for Indianapolis.
