Another week, another tough loss for the New England Patriots and their fanbase to absorb.

On Sunday, the Patriots fought hard and battled the Dallas Cowboys into overtime, but ultimately fell short. The Cowboys prevailed at Gillette Stadium in overtime by the score of 35-29 when their franchise quarterback Dak Prescott found wide receiver CeeDee Lamb for a 36-yard TD strike.

The play ended a hard-fought battle that saw the Patriots overcome a deficit, a seemingly back-breaking pick-six and a downright outstanding football team in the Cowboys.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the loss.

Twitter Reacts To The Patriots’ Crushing Loss To The Cowboys

If you love football, you had to enjoy this game. It was packed with ups and downs and great plays from both teams. That seemed to be the sentiment coming from MSNBC’s Kailani Koenig, though it is clear she was pulling for the Patriots.

The same goes for Amazing America’s Peter Stringer who added some admiration for Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones.

In the postgame pressers, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is never a bundle of energy, but SuitUp News’ Exavier Pope found Belichick particularly “despondent” after this loss.

Faith on the Field’s Rob Maadi believes this latest loss for the Patriots is even more proof which New England sports icon was more important during the team’s 20-year dynasty.

We said the game was great, but to get a visual on how epic of a contest it was, take a look at Next-Gen Stats’ win probability chart. There were multiple times during the game when it appeared one team was headed for certain victory.

The entire contest was in doubt until Lamb crossed the goal line and taunted Jalen Mills after the game-winning touchdown.

CLNS’ Evan Lazar implores the Patriots to “take some swings.” He’s referring to the team’s tendency to play it safe at crucial moments in the game. Associated Press’ Steve Peoples seconds that emotion in the form of this co-signee tweet.

WPRI12’s Morey Hershgordon delivers the painful stat to Patriots fans, some of whom weren’t even alive the last time the team began the season 0-4 at home.

Is there a better way to sum up the Patriots and their season than this quote from Justin Bethel, captured by NESN’s Zack Cox?

Nope, I didn’t think so either.
