Dak Prescott could not break the Dallas Cowboys‘ 27-year Super Bowl drought with their elimination last night. The 49ers beat America’s Team 19-12 in the divisional round game.

I know that’s who I am,” Prescott said at the post-game press conference.

The Dallas Cowboys lost Tony Pollard at the end of the second quarter, and Prescott’s inability to pull them through didn’t sit well with fans.
