The Atlanta Falcons, holding a 27-17 lead with just over three minutes left in the fourth quarter at Fulton County Stadium, are beaten by the Dallas Cowboys 30-27 in the Divisional Playoffs. It had been a dream season for the Falcons who rode the Gritz Blitz to a 12-4 record and were in control most of the game before the Cowboys rallied and took the lead with 47 seconds left on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Danny White to Drew Pearson.
