Much like fans of the Dallas Cowboys, veteran tight end Jason Witten was left stunned after the season came to an abrupt end in Green Bay on Sunday.
Witten had six catches for 71 yards in the 26-21 loss, but obviously it wasn’t enough. After giving up the lead, the Cowboys’ comeback attempt failed when a long shot to Dez Bryant on a 4th-and-2 was reversed on replay.
Per the Dallas Morning News, Witten said he was “pretty much in shock” after the game.
“Any time a season ends this way it’s emotional,” Witten said. “You get a pit in your stomach because you think you are going to go all the way. To end this way, it’s sour.
“But as a leader of this team, I don’t know that I’ve been more proud of a football team and a group of men, coaches and players, the way they have approached a year and given it their all. We emptied the bucket every Sunday.”
