NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The #4 Dallas Cowboys overcame a late rally by the #6 Seattle Seahawks, claiming the 24-22 win in the NFC Wild Card game.

After the Seahawks went up 14-10 in the third quarter, the Cowboys scored two unanswered fourth quarter touchdowns from Ezekiel Elliot and Dak Prescott, putting them up 24-14 with 2:08 left in the game.

The Seahawks then scored with 1:18 left in the game and completed at two point conversion that tightened the lead to 24-22. A botched onside attempt by Seattle was recovered by the Cowboys, ending the game.

The Cowboys (11-6) advance to the NFC Divisional Round next weekend and their match up will be determined by the Bears vs. Eagles game tomorrow.
