ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas Cowboys clinched the NFC East title in style on December 23 at AT&T Stadium with a 27-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Randy Gregory provided the pressure and forced the strip sack. Then Jaylon Smith took it from there.
“Immediately as I tucked the ball, I told myself I wasn’t getting caught,” said Smith.
And he didn’t.
The 69-yard touchdown return proved to be the signature play of the game, helping the Cowboys beat the Buccaneers and secure the division championship.
“To be crowned NFC East Champions is a blessing, you know that’s one of the first goal we want to accomplish – each and every year,” said Smith.
