Monday Night Football, Week 16: Lions at Cowboys

Dallas goes for the No. 1 seed in the NFC. (Gross.)

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

To be fair, this should probably be a fairly competitive game, and one worth watching. Matthew Stafford is having a very good season; some people thought he was snubbed from a spot in the Pro Bowl. On the other side, of course, the Cowboys are very talented. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott have formed one of the most formidable QB-RB combinations in the NFL, which is insane considering they’re both rookies.

I would watch this game if I had absolutely nothing else to do tonight. I might even watch it over watching something equally mind-numbing on television. But if you have other things to do — say, eating cookies and talking with your brother? — I would recommend doing that instead.
