Sunday was a bad day for the Cowboys. They lost their divisional playoff game to the Packers, on a last-second field goal, no less. But then after the game, players and fans couldn't just pack up and go home.
Instead, they got stuck inside AT&T Stadium due to severe weather in the area. Weather forecasts showed potential tornadoes and dangerous flash flooding.

Dismantling the goal posts 2 hours after game ended. Yes, that is same goal post for Mason Crosby's game winner. pic.twitter.com/yyc6e1W2kF— KristiCowboySideline (@KristiCowboy) January 16, 2017

There was some silver lining for fans who got stuck, though. They got to see some of their favorite players one more time this season.
