Eight NFL teams have won their franchise’s first Super Bowl title since the Cowboys last appeared in the big game to end the 1995 season. The Bengals could be the ninth.

The Cowboys thought they had the team to do it this season . . . as they did in 2020 and 2019 and . . .

Dallas was the only home team that lost in the wild card round of the 2021 postseason, running out of time in a failed comeback attempt against the 49ers.

The Cowboys were out of timeouts with 14 seconds left when offensive coordinator Kellen Moore called for a quarterback draw to try to get close enough for a better play than a Hail Mary. Prescott ran 17 yards to the San Francisco 24, and the Cowboys scrambled to the line to try to spike the ball before time ran out. They got the spike off but with no time for another play.

Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb relived the play during an appearance on PFT Live on Thursday.
