The talk surrounding Dallas's mishaps in Sunday's wild-card loss to the the 49ers has filled Monday's headlines, but one fourth-quarter blunder nearly cost San Francisco its victory.
Leading 23–17 with 40 seconds left in the fourth quarter, the 49ers tried to execute a quarterback sneak on fourth-and-1 from the Dallas 38-yard line that would have effectively ended the game.
