Dak Prescott says he'll 'never be over that loss' to the Packers

BY Cameron DaSilva • January 25, 2017

The Dallas Cowboys sent seven players to the Pro Bowl in Orlando this year, though they would have much rather sent zero instead. That’s because as the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the Cowboys had Super Bowl aspirations and would have liked to be playing next Sunday instead of this weekend.

Their hopes were dashed when they fell to the Packers in the Divisional Round thanks to a last-second field goal by Mason Crosby. Dak Prescott played admirably in his playoff debut, but that doesn’t make the loss any easier to swallow. In fact, he says he’ll never get over it.

"It's behind me, but I can't say I'm over that loss," Prescott said after Pro Bowl practice Wednesday, via ESPN. "I'll never be over that loss. I'll never be over any loss. It's definitely fuel to the fire and ready to get back to work."

Prescott obviously realizes how good the Cowboys were, but he wouldn’t say if they’re the best team in the NFL.

"There's other great teams out there. So it's hard for me to say with me not playing in the last game," he said.
