The Cowboys added to their long list of playoff failures with Sunday’s 48-32 loss to Green Bay in the wild-card round.
Dallas allowed the most points in its playoff history — and left team owner Jerry Jones shocked over the performance.
The Cowboys are still in search of their first Super Bowl win since 1995. With the early exit, Dallas became the first team since the NFL merger to record 12 wins in the regular season but fail to reach a conference championship in three consecutive seasons.
With the latest in string of disappointing postseasons, all eyes are now on Jones, who could shake up the Dallas sidelines. While Jones did not get into many details about the future of the organization in the immediate aftermath of the loss, he did give his evaluation of the game.

It’s rare to see Jones at a loss for words. The longtime Cowboys owner is usually quick to deliver witty responses.
But Jones did not have much to say Sunday after watching his team give up 48 points. Dallas became the first team in NFL history to lose to a No. 7 seed in the playoffs.
“I don’t have any comments, questions or answers on why we didn’t do what we wanted to do tonight,” Jones said.
Jones called the loss one of the most surprising results since he joined the organization — which is impressive, considering all of the other heartbreaking moments the Cowboys have racked up over the last two decades.
As for the future of the club, Jones did not delve into any details, but he did say he was “disappointed” for everybody.
“I wont get into any of the addressing of coaches, personnel, any of it,” he said.
There are multiple names who could be on the hot seat following the stunning loss, but no seat will be hotter than Mike McCarthy’s. The Dallas head coach already had his job security thrown into question heading into the playoffs, as it was reported that the team could move on from McCarthy following an embarrassing result in the playoffs.
The result in the wild-card round is as embarrassing as it comes, leaving McCarthy’s future with the team in serious jeopardy.

“We’re disappointed as a whole team,” McCarthy said when asked about his job security. “We’re hurt. I haven’t thought of an outcome past that.”
If the Cowboys do move on from McCarthy, expect Jones to go after the biggest fish in the pond — Bill Belichick. The longtime Patriots head coach is on the market after mutually parting ways with New England.
The dust is still settling from the playoff loss. But a seismic shakeup could be on the horizon in Dallas.
