The Dallas Cowboys saw their season end on a questionable play call in their Wild Card loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, and many have wondered who actually made the decision. We now have an answer.
The Cowboys got the ball trailing 23-17 with 32 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. They needed to go 80 yards for the winning touchdown, and they reached the San Francisco 41-yard line with three straight completions. They then called a quarterback draw for Dak Prescott despite having no timeouts left. Prescott rushed for 17 yards, but the officials were unable to spot the ball in time for a spike (video here). Time expired before the Cowboys could run another play.
