The NFC divisional round curse continues to haunt Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys as the team fumbled against the 49ers on Sunday. This is the second straight loss for America’s team in back-to-back seasons missing the Super Bowl run by a narrow margin. Certainly, the Billionaire looked seemingly disappointed and expressed his emotion in one word.

Jones said that he was “sick” for coming up short and credited the opponents for their phenomenal gameplay. Not to mention, the turnovers from Dak Prescott did play a crucial role in the loss. And now, the management will look forward to correcting their mistakes in the coming offseason.

Apart from their own jitters, the Niners offered great resistance. The only time Cowboys scored a lead was during their first touchdown posting 6-3. However, Brett Maher’s extra-point attempt was blocked.

Thereafter, Prescott’s side had to settle for two field goals, eventually going down 19-12 by the end of the final whistle. Since 1996, America’s team hasn’t gotten past the NFC divisional round. Interestingly, it was the last year they had won the Super Bowl. Hence a title drought continues to haunt the Cowboys’ locker room.

“We came up short. We’re sick. Just sick. Sick. Frankly, turnovers do settle the scores in games like that. And I’m so disappointed for our fans. This felt good today, felt good with the team. But San Francisco had something to say about that,” he added in the interview.
