The Cowboys had one final shot at a miracle and drew up a play that only a headstart backyard football team could concoct.
Here is the play that lit the fire of a social media bashing fest:

First off, if I’m Zeke Elliot, I’m packing my stuff and heading out on my own. How can you draw up a formation with your running back snapping the ball and then getting blasted into oblivion? We didn’t even get the chance to watch a lateral parade.
The chances of pulling off the miracle were slim. The chances of pulling off the miracle in this formation were less than slim. Even with a timeout after teasing the formation,
Dallas still believed this was the correct way to pull off the impossible. Hats off to them.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to have fun with yet another disappointing Cowboys playoff loss. Here are some of the best reactions to the final blow of the Cowboys’ 2022-23′ season:
Many are laughing at that final Cowboys play but at least they changed gears from normal type failure and I appreciate that

It wasn’t the best night to be a Dallas Cowboys fan but fear not Dallas faithful. There’s always next year.
