Aussie NFL star's nightmare game


//

Michael Dickson had the worst game of his young NFL career but the Seattle Seahawks still hung on to narrowly defeat the Arizona Cardinals and set up a playoff clash with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Sydney-raised Dickson, named to the Pro Bowl in his rookie season, had two punts blocked on Sunday that led to touchdowns.

Cardinals defensive end Cameron Malveaux knocked the punt down and linebacker Dennis Gardeck fell on it in the end zone.

The other block came as Dickson punted from the back of his own end zone and the ball landed at the Seahawks' 27-yard line.

The Cardinals took advantage of the field position and scored three plays later.

Dickson also had a 54-yard punt returned 45 yards.

The Seahawks managed to hang on for a 27-24 win against the lowly Cardinals, who lost 13 of their 16 games this season. Dickson was the holder for the go-ahead field goal for Seattle.

Australia's two other punters on teams in playoff contention on the final day of the regular season, Philadelphia Eagles' Cameron Johnston and the Pittsburgh Steelers' Jordan Berry, had nervous days.

The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles needed to beat the Washington Redskins and hope the Chicago Bears defeat the Minnesota Vikings.

The stars aligned, with the Eagles crushing the Redskins 24-0 and the Bears outplaying the Vikings 24-10.

The Eagles take on the Bears next weekend.

The Steelers also had to navigate a slippery slope to the playoffs and will not know their fate until the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans game concludes later Sunday.

The Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 16-13, but their path became unlikely when the Baltimore Ravens outlasted the Cleveland Browns 26-24.

The Steelers' only hope is the unlikely prospect of Indianapolis and Tennessee ending in a tie.
