Matthew and Kelly Stafford step up for family of slain Detroit policeman

Cowboys fan Ernie Flores takes a selfie with his brother Eddie Flores with the Cowboys NFC East Champion products at Academy Sports & Outdoors in Dallas on Thursday. Staff

This is the final game of Week 16, and features two teams that are in the postseason picture.

Anthony: I think regardless of the outcome of the Thursday night game involving the Giants, (a Giant loss would lock up home field for Dallas) Jason Garrett and the coaching staff will have the team ready to play and not looking to hold anything back.

For the Dallas Cowboys to put themselves in the best position possible to achieve their goals this season, they simply can't allow their mentality to change now that they know without a doubt that the NFC East division is locked up. Slay has been the sixth-best cornerback in the NFC this season according to ProFootballFocus, but it bears mention that he has missed two games.

Atlanta's Matt Ryan, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and Dallas' Dak Prescott were selected ahead of Stafford. Despite the fact that father time has taken a significant toll on Boldin's speed and athleticism, he is still risky as a possession receiver and red zone target as he is second on the team in receptions with 58, and leads the team in touchdowns with seven. Even more impressive, he has the most yards after catch of anyone in the league. "But as much as they're getting out of it as seeing little kids that maybe just lost a father or a mother or whatever it was, have something to be happy about, it means a lot too, to be able to give back especially this time of year". Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for more than 1,500 yards on the season with 13 touchdowns.

IIT Kharagpur students stage protest over fee hike, director held inside office
According to students, during admission students were not informed about any fee hike and this decision came mid-semester. A student said that while a fee hike of between Rs 2,000 and Rs 3,000 was common, the rise of Rs 8,000 had angered them.

Eli Manning threw 3 interceptions, and we once again learned that if the Giants are going to be stopped this season, it'll be the combination of Ben McAdoo and Manning that brings them down. The Cowboys will finish next week at the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Lions are passing for more than 250 yards per game, and rushing for 81.7 per game.

Not to mention, the Lions have had a rough few weeks. The Giants haven't reached 20 points in four consecutive games. Detroit might be going on the road to play a team that hasn't lost in their stadium since the September 11 opener, but the Lions' quarterback will be far from uncomfortable. For Miami to earn a playoff berth with a game to go, the Dolphins need a victory and a Denver Broncos loss. If the Packers defeat Minnesota this weekend, Detroit's game at Dallas will have no bearing on the division race. Plus, Dallas is the favorite against Detroit - and why not?
