The Dallas Cowboys raced to an 18-0 lead at halftime tonight, but that doesn’t mean it was a flawless first 30 minutes.
If kicker Brett Maher can convert his extra points, Dallas can go through with 21 points. Maher missed all three points after attempting in the first half, making it four straight through Week 18.

Prescott was Caught by ESPN cameras In particular someone yelling “F—–G go for two.”
As it turned out, the Cowboys scored on their first possession of the third quarter and didn’t go for two. Maher was brought back for another PAT attempt.
He missed. Maher missed four for tonight and five going back to the regular season finale.
Assuming the Cowboys win tonight, Maher will almost certainly be replaced before Sunday’s Divisional Round game.
