Defensive dynamo Tom Jackson got his Bronco teammates fired up for this snow-swept game against Green Bay. On the first two plays from scrimmage, Denver forced two fumbles and racked up two touchdowns as a result. The 17-14 Denver win lives long in the folklore of the Mile High City.
The Vikes had to get it done now if they were to become NFC Central Division Champions. As they had all season, the defense stepped up, scoring their seventh TD in a 21-14 battle with the eventual World Champions.

Buddy Ryan's last game as an NFL coach was, not surprisingly, a sad end to his Cardinals' season. On the bright side, Dallas running back Emmitt Smith scored his 25th touchdown of the year, breaking John Riggins's 1983 mark.

A Cowboys team that had started 1-3 needed an offensive revival. Emmitt Smith was back in form, as was Herschel Walker.

Emmitt Smith turned on the overdrive en route to the NFL rushing title. He bounced pff Atlanta tackles on a memorable 29-yard TD scamper during the Cowboys' 41-14 romp.
Richie Petitbon didn't win many games as Redskins' coach, but his first game had to be the best win from a psychological standpoint. Dallas was playing without Emmitt Smith, who was holding out for more pay. The result was a 35-16 fallout to the archrival 'Skins. It precipitated a few unproven predictions that Dallas would not repeat as World Champions.moreless
The NFL's greatest rivalry again opened the MNF season, but the stakes were much higher. Washington, the defending Super Bowl champions, went nowhere this night at Texas Stadium.

Carolina Panthers 32, Green Bay Packers 29 Green Bay QB Brett Favre went 28-for-47 for 303 yards, 4 touchdowns and one interception.

Chan Gailey was the Cowboys' first-year head coach. His primary mission was to restore glory. With Troy Aikman sidelined, Jason Garrett was pressed into the QB position. But the game belonged to Deion Sanders. His 60-yard punt return TD was the spark that lifted Dallas' offense. Later he returned an interception 70 yards for another score in Dallas' 31-7 walloping of the Giants.moreless
