Dak Prescott, congratulations on becoming the latest meme of the NFL world!
Late in the first quarter of Monday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys were knocking on the door at the goal line against the Philadelphia Eagles. Looking to untie a 7-7 score, Prescott took the ball himself on a quarterback sneak that was not called a touchdown on the field.
Upon review, it seemed like the angles provided and shown to the crowd in Dallas would reverse the decision and give the Cowboys the 14-7 lead. Instead, the officials confirmed the original call and the Eagles regained possession off the turnover on downs.
Here’s how the play went down in real time, alongside an aerial shot of the moment it seemed Prescott broke the plane.
