The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys squared off on Sunday with neither team able to secure a playoff berth on the day, but with the loser being assured of not making the playoffs. In a game that was about as ugly offensively as it was beautiful defensively for the Hawks, Seattle prevailed.
The victory over the Cowboys sets up a Week 17 showdown with the Arizona Cardinals with a potential Wild Card berth on the line, depending on the outcome of the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons game that will be taking place simultaneously on the other side of the country. Before the Week 17 games arrive, however, it’s always fun to take a peek at the reactions on Twitter following a Seahawks victory.
Especially when that victory ends the 2017 playoff hopes of the media darling Cowboys. Thus, without wasting any further time, here are some of the more amusing reactions from the Twittersphere.

So let’s get this straight.— Emmanuel Acho (@thEMANacho) December 25, 2017
The #Cowboys got a Christmas Eve miracle. NOLA beat ATL & CIN beat DET. At home with EVERYTHING to play for against a injury plagued #Seahawks team... and they lose?!
Since Jason Garrett was hired on the Cowboys coaching staff, they have made the playoffs just 4 times in 11 seasons. A massive 2 playoff wins.— Dylan (@DylansFreshTake) December 25, 2017
My favorite team is the Seahawks. My second favorite team is anybody that beats the Cowboys. Today I have achieved football nirvana.— Mikel Borg (@mikel_borg) December 25, 2017
Seattle fans are lucky they played against the dumbest head coach in Dallas history. I have said, since 1999, as long as Jerry Jones owns the Cowboys they will never see another Superbowl. Getting rid of the best head coach in the NFL (Jimmy Johnson) is a blessing to all other— Meb (@MebMeb52) December 25, 2017
Yo! @Seahawks . You didn’t beat the Cowboys. The Cowboys gifted you that game. They beat themselves.— missing_texas (@jims50stng_jim) December 25, 2017

Earl Thomas is under contract in 2018 with the Seattle Seahawks and Jason Garrett is not the GM of the Dallas Cowboys but leave it to twitter to go wild about everything— Ben Baldwin (@guga31bb) December 25, 2017

Jerry Jones hasn’t looked this unsatisfied since Roger got his extension. #Seahawks #Cowboys #SEAvsDAL— Michael Grey (@TheMichaelGrey) December 24, 2017
The Seahawks didn't have to take Zeke out of the game. Cowboys coaches took Zeke out of the game.— BetterLuckythanGood (@IntheClutch75) December 25, 2017
Dez Bryant has now gone 21 straight games w/out a 100-yard receiving effort. Dez also had his #Cowboys' high 11th dropped pass today. Dez is getting paid $14M this season. #Seahawks— Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) December 25, 2017
And, the joys of no longer living in New York . . .
I hate living in the NY football market right now. Instead of being able to watch high profile games with playoff implications, like Saints/Falcons or Cowboys/Seahawks, I’m stuck watching the Jets and Giants! I’m ready for the postseason!— Jason Pellegrini (@JPellegrini1983) December 24, 2017
And how could I ever consider discussing a Seahawks game that was played in Dallas and ended the Cowboys Super Bowl aspirations for the season without dropping this?
