The Dallas Cowboys didn't need a bad start. The pressure on them is constant, and it gets worse at the slightest sign of adversity. That's multiplied for Dak Prescott.

On Sunday, the Cowboys had a bad start. So did Prescott. And they never recovered in a crushing 48-32 loss to the Green Bay Packers in a wild-card playoff game.

The Packers had a long drive to take a 7-0 lead at the start of the game at Dallas, and then, after the teams traded punts, Prescott threw an interception that put Cowboys fans into full panic mode.

Jaire Alexander, who was iffy to play Sunday due to an ankle injury, crawled over Brandin Cooks and made a tremendous catch for an interception.

Prescott's line in the first quarter: 1-of-4, 0 yards, 1 INT, 0.0 passer rating. Not good. The Packers turned Alexander's interception into a touchdown and a 14-0 lead.

He threw it right to safety Darnell Savage, who had an open path to a 64-yard touchdown return.

Prescott's inability to lead the Cowboys on a long playoff run has been a constant offseason topic of conversation among Dallas fans throughout his career.
