Dak Prescott kept handing it to all the wrong people.
He should have delivered the football to umpire Ramon George instead of to his center Tyler Biadasz before time ran out on Dallas' season, leaving Cowboys fans ruminating the quarterback draw that was called with no timeouts and just 14 seconds left.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers sure aren't advancing the easy way.

Bosa was rushing Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott from the left side when he was crunched in the head and neck area as Jones came from the other direction late in the second quarter Sunday.
Encores are tougher to pull off after receiving overwhelming acclaim for trying something new.
However, Nickelodeon and CBS Sports feel as if Sunday's kids-focused broadcast of an NFL playoff game will be better than last year.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Old playoff foes Dallas and San Francisco haven't met in the postseason since the last of three consecutive NFC championship games in the 1990s.
The wild-card meeting Sunday is the first step toward a Super Bowl instead of the last, with Dak Prescott and the Cowboys (12-5) trying to get that far in the playoffs for the first time since the year after their rivalry with the 49ers was the biggest thing going in the NFL.
Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott soared to the top of the NFC as twin rookie stars for the Dallas Cowboys five years ago.
It's not so much that the quarterback and running back didn't appreciate the moment and the opportunity, and there are better reasons to explain why Green Bay beat Dallas in their playoff debut (Aaron Rodgers would be a good place to start).
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The New York Jets and Detroit Lions will get an up-close look at some of college football's top players at the Senior Bowl.
The coaching staffs of both teams were assigned by NFL Football Operations on Tuesday to lead the all-star squads for the game in Mobile, Alabama, on Feb.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The most complete victory of the season for the Dallas Cowboys came just in time for them to try to stay in the running for the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

So they took care of the star quarterback’s slump instead.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The last time the Dallas Cowboys played in prime time on a Sunday, they had to figure out how to win without Dak Prescott.
Now they need to figure out how to get their star quarterback back to what he was before the calf injury that kept him out of that victory over Minnesota.
The only way the Dallas Cowboys can clinch the NFC East title in what's left of Week 15 is if Washington and Philadelphia tie.
With the playoffs and division crown essentially wrapped up, the final three games of the regular season will be about trying to solve the mystery of an offense gone cold.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — It's been said defenses win championships, and nobody in the NFL might be playing better D right now than the Dallas Cowboys.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The only thing separating the Dallas Cowboys from being an NFL power might be their offense.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Most of the talk about the Dallas Cowboys this week is focusing on stellar rookie linebacker Micah Parsons and quarterback Dak Prescott's recent struggles.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — A slumping Dak Prescott has become a danger to comfortable fourth-quarter leads for the Dallas Cowboys in the star quarterback’s first $40 million season.

The NFC East race is tightening up on Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys, who could be without the quarterback's top two receivers in another game with the best pair of defensive ends sidelined on Thanksgiving.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes has been trying to convince everyone that the Kansas City Chiefs' defense has been playing better.
Hard to dispute it now.
What was one of the worst defenses in the NFL — and maybe Chiefs history — the first six weeks of the season showed just how stout it has become on Sunday.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Injuries and COVID-19 put the Dallas Cowboys in a predicament against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs had played so horrendously on defense earlier this season that the Dallas Cowboys and their top-ranked offense probably felt confident that they could keep things rolling Sunday night.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The most dynamic offense in the NFL will be on display inside Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas defensive end Randy Gregory will miss multiple weeks after straining a calf in practice, making him the third Cowboys player to miss time with the injury.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday no decision had been made on Gregory being placed on injured reserve, which would sideline him at least three weeks.
Dak Prescott won't suit up every week in the NFL's first 17-game regular season because he's already had to sit once with a strained right calf.
The star Dallas quarterback can still see the big picture of the added game.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jonathon Cooper and the Denver defense pestered Dak Prescott a lot more than the rookie’s first two sacks in the NFL showed.
The final score wasn’t much of a reflection of the Broncos’ dominance either.
