In a very exciting game, Dolphins' Jason Sanders secures a last-second victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The Jacksonville Jaguars are facing a bitter evening. A recap of late-night NFL games in Week 16.
Dallas Cowboys & Miami Dolphins 20:22
With time running out, Jason Sanders launched the Miami Dolphins into the playoffs.
He hit the kick from 29 yards to set up the final score at 22:20 against the Dallas Cowboys and set up the ultimate thriller.
The Dolphins are 11-4 and can no longer be knocked out of the playoffs. Overall Sanders showed a solid performance and scored a total of 16 points on five field goals and an extra point.
Running back Raheem Mostert scored the Dolphins' lone goal.
For the Cowboys, quarterback Dak Prescott (253 yards, 2 TDs) and receiver CeeDee Lamb (118 yards, 1 TD) were the most notable players.
With a 10-5 record, Dallas is still on track to make the playoffs.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Tampa Bay Buccaneers 12:30
The Jacksonville Jaguars had a very bitter evening in their Florida duel with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and suffered their fourth straight defeat at 12:30 to a tough Bucs team.
The Buccaneers took a 30-0 lead in the third quarter, but the Jaguars at least managed to make the outcome more bearable.
But what sucks is that Trevor Lawrence (211 yards, 1 touchdown, 2 interceptions) is injured again. After recently suffering an ankle injury and concussion, the midfielder was forced to leave the field at the start of the fourth quarter due to a shoulder injury.
Bucs QB Baker Mayfield had a clean, scintillating performance with 284 yards and two touchdown passes to Mike Evans.
Both teams are now 8-7 and have their eyes on the playoffs.

Arizona Cardinals at Chicago Bears 27:16
Cairo Santos eliminated the last doubts about a Chicago Bear victory shortly before the end, as the kicker kicked a field goal with just under a minute on the clock for the final score of 27:16 against the Arizona Cardinals.
It was Chicago's fourth straight home win, as quarterback Justin Field threw for 170 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 97 yards and added a rushing touchdown to his stats.
The Bears improved their record to 6-9, but have only a theoretical chance to make the playoffs.
The Cardinals are 3-12.
