Crazy Thing No. 1
Dan Bailey and Mason Crosby combined to go 3-for-3 on field goals from beyond 50 yards, a major show of onions in the crucible of the playoffs. The first one put the Packers back in the lead after Dallas had scored 15 unanswered points to tie the game. It wasn't a cheapie either, a 56-yard bomb. If Crosby misses this, the Cowboys take over at midfield in a tie game. He didn't.
Crazy Thing No. 2
The Cowboys struggled with unforced errors all day, but this one was by far the most costly. After an 11-yard reception by Jason Witten, the Cowboys had first and 10 from the Green Bay 40 with 1:07 to play and a timeout in their pocket. Dak Prescott chose to spike the football however, killing the clock, stripping Dallas of a down to operate with, and ultimately, giving Aaron Rodgers and the Packers just enough time in the game's final possession.

Crazy Thing No. 4
Old farts like me thought about Super Bowl XXV and Jeff Hostetler, holding onto the football as Bruce Smith grabbed at his right arm in the Giants' end zone. That helped save Big Blue's season in 1991 and Rodgers' ability to keep possession of the ball on a blindside sack from Jeff Heath is nearly as impressive. It's good to have giant hands.
