The Dallas Cowboys lost to the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s Wild Card matchup and we know why. It may not have been because of talent, and it may not have been because the better team won.

The Cowboys lost because the Dallas Fort Worth airport jinxed them prior to the game.

49ers fans are known to travel well to away games. Take last weekend against the Rams, for example. The visiting fanbase was so loud in Los Angeles that the home team had to run a silent count, which is simply unheard of.

Obviously, a trip from the Bay to Texas isn’t quite as easy, but San Francisco fans flooded the Dallas area anyway. In turn, the airport for which the vast majority of them will be arriving, took a shot on Friday.

The airport’s official twitter account chirped the visiting fans ahead of kickoff. It tweeted out that they just stocked up on tissues at each of their stores, so when 49ers fans go home crying, they will have something to cry and blow their noses into.

That is a LOT of talk for an airport. Especially considering that their team has been known to choke in the playoffs. And they did.

If 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is smart, he used the tweet as bulletin board material. And now that his team won, it is going to be an absolute bloodbath for the DFW airport on Twitter.

The jinx is real.
