Dak Prescott scored a touchdown against the Eagles on Monday Night Football. Unfortunately, the refs screwed the Cowboys by making a terrible call.
It didn’t take long for Monday Night Football to be marred by a questionable decision by the referees.
The Cowboys were in disbelief when the officials didn’t overturn a call on the field denying Dak Prescott a touchdown at the goal line.
Dallas went for it on fourth-and-goal from the one-yard line with the quarterback attempting a sneak. It looked close on the field, so the refs not calling the score in the moment made some sense.
However, when it went to replay no one understood why there wasn’t enough evidence to prove he’d crossed the goal line when he clearly had.
Here’s the video of the play, including that overhead shot.

The official Cowboys twitter accounted needed a single emoji to react.
Dallas can take heart knowing the defense held up and forced a three-and-out on the ensuing Eagles drive. When Prescott got the ball back, he took his team back down the field and left no doubt with a touchdown pass to Dalton Schultz for 19 yards.
Dallas now has to make sure that lost touchdown doesn’t come back to hurt them later.
