The Dallas Cowboys were already having a terrible game against the Indianapolis Colts, but the way head coach Jason Garrett has managed the game is getting under fans' skin.

Specifically, Garrett's decision to wait and use his timeouts until there were only a few minutes left in the game is coming under fire.

Some fans were willing to give Garrett the benefit of the doubt, citing his insistence on getting some points on the board and avoiding the first Cowboys shutout since 2003.

However, other fans were a little bit more cynical:

Additionally, Garrett's continued use of star RB Ezekiel Elliott even when the game was well-lost has gotten on the nerves of one of his biggest fans.

The Cowboys wound up losing the game 23-0 and fell to 8-6 on the season.

The loss prevents the Cowboys from clinching the NFC East title and opens up the door for either the Washington Redskins or Philadelphia Eagles.

The Cowboys will regroup at AT&T Stadium next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
