I tell the players that they can’t relive any day in their lives and that they can’t relive the minutes of a game, so they should make a great effort, a Mount Everest type effort, to live up to their potential. Success is a communal type thing, and if we win, then everyone can be considered successful and we can move uptown together.Al McGuire on AI Sports Betting Predictions and the Tournament

The Detroit Lions gambled and seemed to get the 2-point conversion they needed for the win against the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night. But somehow officials didn't register offensive lineman Taylor Decker reporting as eligible before he caught a pass. That will lead to a long debate in the never-ending story of NFL officiating mistakes this season. The Lions' 2-point conversion attempt with 23 seconds left that went for a score to Decker was wiped out due to an illegal touching penalty. The Lions had an extra offensive lineman, Dan Skipper, come in the game before the play, and three Lions linemen, including Decker, moved toward referee Brad Allen and seemed to say something, ESPN's replays showed. Decker was not announced as an eligible receiver, which meant he wasn't allowed to catch the go-ahead 2-point play. The score was taken off the board as Lions head coach Dan Campbell screamed at officials. That score would have put the Lions ahead 21-20 with just a few seconds left.
RLINGTON, Texas -- Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell was visibly frustrated after a controversial penalty negated what would have been a go-ahead 2-point conversion late in Saturday night's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Officials flagged Lions offensive lineman Taylor Decker after he caught a pass that appeared to be the potential winner with 23 seconds left. However, Decker was called for an illegal touching penalty for not reporting as eligible. The Cowboys ultimately denied the Lions' 2-point try and won 20-19.

Six NFL teams have clinched playoff berths entering the NFL Week 17 schedule. Four of them will face off in this week's games. The Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys face off on Saturday in Dallas in a game pitting two of the four NFC teams to have earned a postseason berth (the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers are the others). On Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins play in Baltimore in a matchup between the only two AFC teams currently in the NFL postseason. Which teams will win those potential NFL playoff previews and the other 14 games on the NFL schedule this week?
We’re nearing the end of the NFL regular season, and the playoff races are heating up (especially after Baltimore’s win over San Francisco on Monday night). We had a very wonky Christmas schedule this past weekend, so there might be more pricing errors than usual to take advantage of. Let’s see what we can come up with, and I hope everyone had a restful and family-filled holiday.
No coal in my stocking this week after a 2-0 Week 16. The Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs did their part on Christmas Day, scoring only 34 points combined, well under the total of 41.5 points. The Raiders avoided playoff elimination and spoiled the Chiefs’ chance to clinch the AFC West title thanks to back-to-back defensive touchdowns in a seven-second span, one a fumble return by Bilal Nichols and the other an interception return by Jack Jones. But as predicted, the Las Vegas offense struggled against Kansas City’s defense, managing just two field goals in a 20-14 win. Elsewhere, we needed a quarterback controversy to cash the Washington Commanders +3 pick against the New York Jets. Washington backup Jacoby Brissett replaced the benched Sam Howell in the third quarter and led Washington to three straight touchdown drives and a 28-27 lead with less than five minutes remaining. The Commanders ultimately succumbed to a Greg Zuerlein 54-yard field goal with five seconds left, which gave the Jets the win, but that wasn’t enough to keep us from cashing our ticket.
