Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams will wear the goat horns tonight, thanks to his inexplicable clock management gaffe in the final seconds.

With the Cowboys attempting to drive for a game-winning field goal in the final seconds, Terrance Williams committed an epic blunder. The fourth-year wide receiver caught a Dak Prescott pass near the sidelines...and turned back upfield instead of getting out of bounds and stopping the clock.

Did we mention Dallas was out of timeouts? They were, and couldn't get to the line of scrimmage in time to spike the ball. The clock expired, and the New York Giants left the field victorious.

If Williams made the smart play, Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey would have had roughly a 60-yard field goal attempt. Bailey had already made kicks from 54 and 56 yards on the day. In the background Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant can even be seen directing his teammate toward the boundary.

We know what the top story will be in Dallas tomorrow.
