The Divisional round of the National Football League playoff concluded on Sunday with two games.


At Arlington, Texas:

After Aaron Rodgers (who threw for two touchdowns) completed a 36-yard pass to Jared Cook, Mason Crosby delivered on a 51-yard game-winning field goal as time expired as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 34-31 to advance to next Sunday's NFC Championship Game in Atlanta against the Falcons (in their Georgia Dome finale) at 12:05 PM Pacific Time (FOX).


At Kansas City, Missouri:

Chris Boswell kicked an NFL postseason single-game record six field goals as the Pittsburgh Steelers knocked off the Kansas City Chiefs 18-16 in an AFC divisional playoff game.  The Steelers will visit the New England Patriots in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game (New England's sixth successive trip to the conference title game), which starts at 3:40 PM Pacific Time (CBS).
