As if the sting of Sunday's 34-31 loss would not linger long enough, some Dallas Cowboys fans were unable to leave AT&T Stadium to escape their misery.
A tornado and flood warning issued for the Arlington area kept players, media and lingering fans inside following Sunday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.
A tornado watch for the entire Dallas/Fort Worth area was initially issued by the National Weather Service around 19:00 (local time), but a warning for Tarrant County was issued at 21:15 (local time) and would remain in effect for 30 minutes.

That meant a shelter in place order was issued and people were kept inside the monstrous Cowboys stadium.
Storms in the area also resulted in flash flood warnings, and hopefully everyone would get home safely.
