The Dallas Cowboys lost exactly how most of the rest country likes it: In the most painful and hilarious way possible. The Cowboys were kicked out of the playoffs with a 23-17 loss to the 49ers on Sunday, in a game where they got dominated in the first quarter, only to show signs of life in the fourth quarter, and then have Lucy pull away the football right before Charlie Brown was about to kick it.
In this case, the Cowboys had the ball in the final minute, needing a touchdown to win. Inexplicably, the Cowboys called for quarterback Dak Prescott to run the ball up the middle with 14 seconds remaining and no timeouts. Prescott ran for 17 yards to the 49ers’ 24, but by the time the ball was spotted by an official, time had expired and the game was over.
