        Bizarre ending

        After the circumstances surrounding the ending of the game, it’s perhaps understandable why Cowboys fans were frustrated.
          Despite all the offensive talent the team has, Dallas struggled to move the ball against the 49ersthe Cowboys had 11 possessions, seven of which ended with no points.
          But trailing by six points and with just over 30 seconds on the clock, Prescott had an opportunity to make amends.

We could say, 'Si, he needs to be closer to the ball,’ or whatever, but in hindsight, it’s just tough. Just tough to accept.
