ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers arent quite ready for prime time. Deshazor Everett Jersey .They also arent out of the playoff chase because of a tough loss that ended their five-game winning streak, the longest since their Super Bowl-winning season of 2002.Weve just got to keep winning, see how it plays out, Winston said after a 26-20 loss at the NFC-leading Dallas Cowboys in his first Sunday night game.The Buccaneers (8-6), who couldnt muster a comeback in the fourth quarter after erasing a 17-3 deficit and taking a 20-17 lead, dropped a game behind Atlanta in the NFC South with two games left to play.After Winston threw touchdown passes to Adam Humphries and Cameron Brate in the third quarter, Tampa Bay had only one first down on their five possessions in the fourth quarter.The Bucs punted with just over 2 minutes left after Winston was sacked and had two incompletions.Ezekiel Elliott, the rookie leading the NFL in rushing, then had a 15-yard run before the Cowboys (12-2) were forced to punt with 1:38 left.With the Bucs at their own 11, Winston had an 11-yard completion for their only first down in the final quarter before an incompletion and fumble they recovered and then two more incompletions.We had a chance in the fourth quarter. Were not playing for chances, were playing for keeps here, first-year Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter said. I can only hope that this experience will help us.Elliott rushed for a career-high 159 yards, including a 2-yard TD when he celebrated by jumping into an oversized Salvation Army red kettle in front of the stands.While the Cowboys closed in on home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, the Bucs are currently outside the NFCs top six.Tampa Bay split its two games with division-leading Atlanta. The Bucs go to New Orleans next weekend before closing the regular season at home against Carolina -- those are the two teams behind them in the division.Im not sure of all the scenarios yet, Koetter said. Right now, Dallas is the No. 1 seed. We came to their place and didnt play our best game.Dallas bounced back after their franchise-record 11-game winning streak ended, hanging on after Winston had rallied the Bucs.Winston threw for 247 yards and two touchdowns but had four turnovers, including an interception that led to Dan Baileys 38-yard field goal that gave Dallas a 23-20 lead early in the fourth quarter.Every game in the NFL is a must win, Brate said. It gets amplified here at the end of the year. Its a great opportunity for us. We put ourselves in a good spot. Things didnt go our way today, but if we win our last two, we feel like we have a good chance of making the playoffs.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Chris Thompson Jersey . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. Junior Galette Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. http:///...-trent-murphy-jersey . Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. CHICAGO -- Marian Hossa may be playing like the most experienced member of Chicago Blackhawks, but he doesnt show signs of being one of the teams oldest players.The 37-year-old forward is as crafty as ever and seems to have plenty of gas left in the tank -- even when Chicago rolls beyond regulation time.Hossa scored his team-leading 12th goal through a screen at 1:31 of overtime to lift the Blackhawks to a 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.Hossas shot through traffic from high in the slot beat Cory Schneider on the glove side, moments after New Jerseys Mike Cammalleri hit the post on a prime chance against Chicagos Corey Crawford.(Patrick Kane) took the puck, just gave it to me and I tried to hold it and maybe see my options, said Hossa, who will turn 38 on Jan. 12. And I didnt see anything so I tried to shoot through the screen.I dont think goalie saw much. It wasnt a hard shot but I just tried to shoot it at the net.It worked, and the Western Conference-leading Blackhawks won their second straight as they played beyond regulation for the third consecutive time. Chicago is 3-0-1 in its last four.Hossas heroics allowed the Blackhawks to overcome a hat trick by New Jerseys Travis Zajac in a high-tempo game with few stoppages.Zajacs third goal of the game at 8:49 of the third tied it 3-all after scores by Chicagos Artem Anisimov and Niklas Hjalmarsson late in the second period had put the Blackhawks ahead.(Hossa) seems to have found the fountain of youth, Hjalmarsson said. Hes looking better and stronger than ever.Hes been a huge key player for our team. One of the most professional players Ive ever played with. Fun to see how hard he still works.Marcus Kruger also connected for Chicago to end a 22-game drought.The Devils have dropped four straight, but coach John Hynes isnt upset with his teams energy level.We competed, we played with passion, our quality of play was very good, Hynes said. We have to clean up some penalties but I think if we have the competition level, the passion we played . we have something to really build on.Zajac completed his second career hat trick from the low edge of the left circle after taking a slick cross-ice pass from Cammalleri. He fiired into a wide open net before Crawford could react. Sam Huff Jersey. Zajac, who had a two-goal game on Oct. 25 against Arizona, has eight goals this season.It feels good, Zajac said, but youd trade it for a win, especially a road win, because weve had difficulty getting those.The Devils are 3-7-4 on the road, but 7-0-2 at the Prudential Center.Crawford finished with 30 saves, Schneider made 29.New Jersey forward Taylor Hall returned to the Devils lineup after missing eight games with a torn meniscus in his left knee.Hall had knee surgery on Nov. 16. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft originally was expected to miss three to four weeks.The Blackhawks played without captain Jonathan Toews, who missed his fourth straight game due to an upper-body injury. The 28-year-old center has four goals and eight assists in 21 games.New Jersey forward John Quenneville, the 20-year-old second cousin of Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, made his NHL debut. John Quenneville was the Devils first-round draft pick, 30th overall, in 2014.Anisimov tied it 2-2 when he drove to the net and backhanded in a loose rebound. Schneider made a pad save in Anisimovs initial tip-in attempt of Duncan Keiths shot from the point.Hjalmarrson put Chicago in front for the first time, 3-2, with 1:35 left in the second on a fluttering screened shot from high in the slot.Game notes Zajacs recording his first hat trick in March 2014 vs Florida. . New Jersey acquired the 25-year-old Hall in a trade from Edmonton last June. He had five goals and seven assists heading into Thursday night. ... Anisimov appeared to be at 100 percent, despite limping off the ice in the third period of Tuesdays 2-1 shootout win over Florida after Keiths shot hit the inside of his lower right leg. ... New Jersey C Sergey Kalinin missed the game due to an illness. ... The Devils healthy scratches were D Jon Merrill and C Jacob Josefson.
