Monday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Cowboys Season Ends in Worst Way Possible
Was it a catch? Dez Bryant made one of the season's best catches to set up a would-be Dallas touchdown opportunity late in the fourth quarter against Green Bay, only to see the call overturned and the Cowboys' season come to a sudden end. The play left New Jersey governor (and Dallas superfan) Chris Chistie stunned, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan ecstatic and Lions players tweeting about karma. Other highlights from the NFL weekend: Aaron Rodgers gave millions of fantasy owners a team name for next season (New York Bozo) ... Tony Romo throws with his eyes closed ... The Cowboys and Packers had a mid-game brawl ... Peyton Manning had a bad day throwing the ball, which inspired a bunch of noodle-arm memes ... ESPN's experts all whiffed on the Colts-Broncos game ... Marshawn Lynch gave the media another stiff-arm after Seattle's victory, though he had plenty to say on this Kam Chancellor interception return ... Speaking of Chancellor, he is a freak ... Tom Brady was especially chippy after being kneed by Ravens LB Pernell McPhee ... John Harbaugh is still fuming about the Patriots' offensive line strategies. He should recognize that Bill Belichick is a genius. Julian Edelman isn't so dumb either as he had t-shirts for sale within 24 hours of his memorable trick play touchdown pass.
But nothing beat Hannah Storm delivering a stiff-arm to her makeup artist.

If you're not sure who to root for, this video of Buckeyes players with the Studebaker Brothers (who both have Duchenne muscular dystrophy) may swing your allegiance ... One Oregon player (offensive lineman Stetzon Bair) is expecting his first child any second now but made the trip to Dallas... Cardale Jones busted out a great mama joke at the OSU press conference ... OSU receivers have matching "Zone 6" necklaces ... A grocery store chain with locations in Columbus is stocking up on Ducks.

Darts Gone Wild
Rowdy fans got into an enormous chair-throwing brawl during the Darts Invitational Challenge in Melbourne on Saturday. Police are looking at footage to see what sparked the craziness, but an Etihad Stadium spokesman noted that the venue served only mid-strength beer and closed the bar as soon as the violence erupted. Also, I like the expression "mid-strength beer."
My Favorite College Hoops Fan
Can't say enough good things about Will Privette, who didn't let a wheelchair stop him from storming the court after N.C. State's victory over Duke. Privette famously stormed the court in 2013 and ended up being carried to safety by Wolfpack forward C.J. Leslie.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Rule
The duo roasted just about everyone in their Golden Globe monologue last night. I thought the George Clooney joke was their best.
