Cowboys Set Ugly NFL History In Wild Card Loss vs. Packers

This looked like the year in which the Dallas Cowboys could end the ineptitude in the postseason. The NFC looked to be pretty wide open as no team, outside of the San Francisco 49ers, was able to cement their status as legitimate Super Bowl contenders.

Thanks to earning the No. 2 seed in the NFC, the Cowboys wouldn’t have to face off against them unless they advanced to the NFC Championship Game. Alas, Dallas isn’t going to get that chance as they were crushed by the Green Bay Packers during Super Wild Card Weekend.

Hosting Green Bay at AT&T Stadium, Dallas had yet another dud playoff performance, losing 48-32. They had no answer for Jordan Love and Aaron Jones, as the Packers offense picked the Cowboys apart from the opening whistle.

While the statistics look solid enough for the Dallas offense, the box score is a mirage. The Packers scored the first 27 points of the game and led by as many as 32 in the second half as most of the production of Dak Prescott came with the game already decided.

It was a truly disappointing effort from the Cowboys, who carried a good amount of momentum heading into the playoffs. There could be some major changes on the horizon as this current group proved once again they cannot get over the hump when it matters most.

Just how bad of a loss was this one? According to Jordan Raanan of ESPN, it was a historic one. Per ESPN Stats & Info, the Cowboys are the first franchise since the NFL merger to win 12 games in three straight seasons and fail to make a championship game in any of them.

That is certainly not the kind of history the Cowboys want to be attached to. Under Mike McCarthy, they have had their most success in the regular season since the dynasty in the 1990s.

His teams in the last three seasons are the first to win double-digit games in consecutive seasons since that point. However, the lack of playoff success has left a sour taste in everyone’s mouths, leading to some questions about his future with the franchise.

While regular season success is nice, that isn’t what Jerry Jones measures his team’s success by. He wants to see the Cowboys win championships but hasn’t seen his team get close to a title since their dynasty ended in the 90s.
