If you’re one of the sad sacks who bet the Over 45.5 in Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, may god have mercy on your soul.
The Cowboys boat-raced the Buccaneers in the NFC Wild Card meeting 31-14, which missed the Over by a half-point. But, the Cowboys-Buccaneers game was actually more lopsided than the final score suggests.
In fact, Dallas left four extra-point attempts off the board thanks to four straight shanks by Cowboys PK Brett Maher. The internet predictably had its way with Maher.
DALLAS COWBOYS SURVIVE FOUR MISSED EXTRA POINTS TO DEMOLISH TOM BRADY’S BUCS, ELIMINATE THE GOAT IN POTENTIAL FINAL GAME
Here are some highlights:
As the saying goes, “misery loves company,” so I’m kinda happy the Over whiffed. My handicap for Cowboys-Bucs was dog-sh*t. Both my Tampa plus the points and OVER Bucs RB Leonard Fournette rushing yards bets lost.
Nah, I’m just messing. I send my condolences to everyone who bet Over 45.5 and their families. Given how fluidly Dallas moved the ball and how many times Tom Brady chucked it, this game should’ve flown Over the total.
