(0:32)ARLINGTON, Texas -- A once promising season for the Dallas Cowboys ended in chaotic fashion Sunday after a 23-17 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC wild-card game at AT&T; Stadium.To secure the win, the 49ers had to withstand a final-second comeback that saw the Cowboys reach the San Francisco 41-yard line with 14 seconds to play and at least seemingly in position to throw a final pass to the end zone to conjure up memories of Roger Staubach's Hail Mary to Drew Pearson in the 1975 playoffs.It never happened.With 14 seconds left and no timeouts, Prescott ran 17 yards on a quarterback draw, but the ball was not spotted quickly enough for Dallas to spike it before time expired.Prescott thought he should have had a chance for a final throw to the end zone. So, you're never fully sure until they let you know."McCarthy said an official on the sideline told him there would be a review, but Kemp quickly said the game was over."I thought they were going to put time back on the clock," McCarthy said.Kemp said officials in New York could not assist in that situation."That's the end of the game once we confirmed it with the officials on the field," he said.As Kemp and the rest of the crew left the field, debris rained down from upset Cowboys fans.
