The 8-3 Dallas Cowboys are hoping to keep pace with Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles. CeeDee Lamb is doing his part to help the Cowboys keep up with his former teammate in the NFC East.
With Dallas trailing 3-0, the Cowboys faced a third-and-9 deep in Indianapolis Colts territory. Dak Prescott dropped back to pass and found Lamb on the drag route over the middle. It looked as if Lamb was going to be stopped short of the line to gain after being wrapped up by a Colts defender. But the defender didn’t do enough to bring him down. Lamb rolled off the defender and kept his feet to run into the end zone.
It was a fantastic play on prime-time television, and social media reacted accordingly. Here’s a look at some of the best Twitter reactions to the big play.
