Cowboys fans spent a lot of money to see their best team in years only lose to the 49ers.
One can say they were fighting mad.
They were fighting in the stands and once the game was over they started fighting in the parking lot.
Meanwhile the Cowboys were copping pleas for their decision-making at the end of the game.
With 14 seconds left and no timeouts, Prescott ran 17 yards on a quarterback draw but the ball was not spotted quick enough for Dallas to spike it before time expired. Prescott thought he should have had a chance for a final throw to the end zone. Mike McCarthy thought there would be a review from New York. Both defended the final play call despite the risk of having the game end the way it did.
According to referee Alex Kemp, there were no mistakes on their part. “The umpire spotted the ball correctly,” Kemp said in a pool report. Umpire Ramon George was trailing the play when Prescott took off and collided with the quarterback before placing the ball down. Prescott said he saw four seconds on the clock when he got behind center Tyler Biadasz. He said he saw two seconds on the clock after colliding with George.
“He collided with the players as he was setting the ball because he was moving it to the proper spot,” Kemp said. That time proved to be the end of the Cowboys’ chances for an improbable comeback. “The execution between us and the official spotting the ball obviously wasn’t in tune,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “We shouldn’t have had any problem getting the ball spotted there.”
McCarthy defended offensive coordinator Kellen Moore’s decision to call the run, even with no timeouts. He said he was “shocked” the Cowboys didn’t get a last-play opportunity. The Cowboys call those situations, “church clock,” situations and it is something they practice each week.
Prescott implied the refs screwed them and commended the fans for throwing trash at the refs.
Their aim was bad and hit some Cowboys players.
