NFL Week 16 as told by Twitter: Dallas avoids another meltdown
The Cowboys almost choked away another game - and a playoff spot - until Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray bailed out Dallas. Twitter users reacted with a bevy hilarious tweets.
The Cowboys narrowly avoided another embarrassing meltdown thanks to Tony Romo finding DeMarco Murray for a late touchdown to take the lead. Prior to Murray's touchdown, the Cowboys and Redskins engaged in nearly 60 minutes of football comedy. Even LeBron James chimed in on Dallas' bid to stay alive in the NFC East race.
Man the Cowboys better not lose this game! Demarco Murray got 76 yards on 11 carries with a TD. Give him the ball man! Not now but right now— LeBron James (@KingJames) December 22, 2013
Set up perfectly for Tony Romo. The gods are ruthless.— Don Van Natta Jr. (@DVNJr) December 22, 2013
Tony Romo is like, "See, that's what happens when I hand it off to Murray!!!"— Josh Katzowitz (@joshkatzowitz) December 22, 2013
In lieu of giving Romo credit, I'll just attribute that to Shanahan wanting to get fired.— Mike Tunison (@xmasape) December 22, 2013
I think we'll all remember where we were when Tony Romo engineered a comeback win against a 3-12 team that allows 31 points a game.— Mike Gianella (@MikeGianella) December 22, 2013

Like the NFC East, the NFC North is a complete mess.
So the Bears are playing for their division tonight. The Eagles would be, but the Redskins are coached by Mike Shanahan.— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) December 23, 2013
Jay Cutler missed half the season. Rodgers missed half the season. Lions were remarkably healthy, won't finish better than .500. Pathetic— Peter Bukowski (@BukoTime) December 23, 2013

Peyton Manning needs 266 yards to break the single-season yardage and touchdown records this year. http://t.co/MEPNph4ArA— CBSSports.com (@CBSSports) December 22, 2013
Meanwhile, the referees in Green Bay are probably still confused about this play.
Refs say you can’t challenge possession? What? OK, so how about being DOWN BY CONTACT? Was that up for a challenge?— Dejan Kovacevic (@Dejan_Kovacevic) December 22, 2013
Mike Tomlin should’ve jumped on Ryan Clark’s lateral. Problem solved.— ryan wilson (@ryanwilson_07) December 22, 2013
"Possession in the field of play is not a challengeable aspect of a replay" Then why review turnovers at all?— Mike Tunison (@xmasape) December 22, 2013
Wow. Steelers definitely had possession with a knee down. Tomlin should have been able to review that.— Adam Hoge (@AdamHoge) December 22, 2013
This looks miserable.

Stork, a center, is just 25 and started the Patriots' most-recent Super Bowl as a rookie
The Broncos GM and Cardinals coach bring plenty of experience to the table
It actually makes a lot of sense given Cleveland's limited options with troubled WR
No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa isn't any closer to joining his team ahead of his rookie seas...
The NFL cupboard isn't at all bare after the departure of three first-round picks
It turns out that Dez Bryant is a terrible kicker
