The Dallas Cowboys came into their Sunday afternoon game against the Washington Commanders with a shot at the NFC East title.
They needed a win, plus a loss by the Philadelphia Eagles, to win the NFC East going into their game.
However, the game saw them losing to the Commanders, keeping the Cowboys as the fifth seed in the NFC playoffs.
The loss is having fans take to Twitter with how they feel about the enormous loss to the Commanders.
With the Cowboys having a playoff spot, at least they can win a game next week.
Good job keep your heads up well get em next week!

Another Twitter user called the Cowboys the Mickey Mouse club after their 20 point loss to the Commanders.
M-O-U-S-E (that's me!)
It's the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
Come inside, it's fun inside
It's the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (roll call!)
Diggs (hyuck, here!)
Parsons (woof! woof!)

While they have a playoff spot, it isn’t giving fans any confidence after the loss on Sunday.

With Dak Prescott having a horrible game, fans feel the Cowboys threw the game.
Did Dallas throw this game?! It's hard to imagine playing much worse.

However, one fan of the Cowboys will be a realist after their team’s loss.

It’s easy to see why fans are unhappy with the Cowboys, who had their second worse game of the season.
Their six points was the lowest score in a game during their season since their loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week one.
Prescott’s 128 passing yards was his worse since week one, where he had 134 yards.
The loss now takes away momentum from the Cowboys, who head to Tampa Bay during the wild card weekend.
With the playoffs seeing a rematch between the Cowboys and Buccaneers, the Cowboys might have another short playoff run this season.
