Mexico City. As in the best of times, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys put on a great display in the wild card game.
The Lone Star team had a fierce reaction in the final period, scoring 10 unanswered points in a game they trailed by 17 points, but ultimately faltered offensively.
The Californians suffered, their quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo did not respond when it was needed, he could not keep possession, mostly, three plays and out.
In the last quarter, the score was 23 to 17, Dallas needed a touchdown, with one minute on the clock, they returned the ball to Prescott who made bad decisions and without extra time, the clock ran out when he decided to run to the first and 10 , instead of looking for the pass to the end zone, the clock ran out, costing them the game.
The 49ers advanced to the next round, and are on their way to the Super Bowl.
