SOCIAL MEDIA ROASTS THE COWBOYS’ RARE FINAL PLAY IN LOSS TO THE 49ERS
It was a tough night for McCarthy and the Cowboys.
Dak Prescott finished 24 of 37 passing for 206 yards, one TD pass and two interceptions. The team had 282 yards of total offense and went 5-for-15 on third down.
«Just let down,» Prescott said of his performance. «The defense gave us a chance to win this game. They played hard against a very, very good offense, a very good team. For us to just put up the points that we made, that’s unacceptable. It starts with me. He has to be better. No There’s another way to sweeten it.»
McCarthy admitted that emotions were running high.
