WATCH: Former Wisconsin tight end has a career day in Cowboys’ blowout loss

The Dallas Cowboys just did it again. There were high expectations, a high-flying team, a high-profile quarterback, the No. 2 seed and everything working in their favor. The result: another debilitating loss in the playoffs.

This year it came in the form of a 48-32 loss to the upstart Green Bay Packers.

Minus all the important storylines including Mike McCarthy’s possible firing, Dak Prescott now being on razor-thin ice, the possibility of Jerry Jones hiring Bill Belichick, Matt LaFleur’s masterpiece, Jordan Love’s arrival and Brian Gutekunst’s genius offseason, the Cowboys did end up wasting a really good game from former Wisconsin tight end Jake Ferguson.

Ferguson finished with 10 catches, 93 receiving yards and three touchdowns. In a game where the defense was brutal, Prescott threw multiple interceptions and even the rock-solid kicker missed, the former Badger may have been the only Cowboy to show up to work.

Ferguson and starting center Tyler Biadasz’s seasons came to an end with the Cowboys’ loss today. The Packers move on to face the 49ers in the NFL Divisional Round next weekend.
