Lions vs. Cowboys live score, updates, highlights from NFL Week 17 Saturday night game

The Lions enter Week 17 as newly-crowned NFC North champions, but coach Dan Campbell insisted last weekend that the division title was just the beginning. If Detroit wants to achieve its larger goals in 2023, a win over the Cowboys would be a giant step in the right direction.

The top seed in the NFC is still on the table for the Lions, but a loss plus a win by either the 49ers or Eagles would knock Detroit out of that mix. 

Even if the Lions don’t secure a first-round bye, a win in Dallas would be a key confidence-builder ahead of what they hope will be a deep playoff run. Jared Goff and the offense are playing at a high level once again, and the defense has a chance to get itself back on track with the right kind of performance against a reeling Cowboys team.

The Cowboys severely damaged their once-promising NFC East hopes by dropping back-to-back games against the Bills and Dolphins, but Dallas can enter Week 18 still in contention with a win on Saturday regardless of what the Eagles do on Sunday. A three-game losing streak entering Week 18 would not leave Mike McCarthy’s group with the right taste in its mouth as Dallas tries to prepare for its own playoff run.

6:20 p.m. — It’s also a special night for Jimmy Johnson, who will finally be honored by Jerry Jones and the Cowboys.
