The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Green Bay Packers Sunday because they left too much time on the clock for Aaron Rogers. That happens. What happened at the end of the game almost never works but is a delight to watch. Michael David Smith:
With the ball on their own 25-yard line and five seconds left in the game, the Cowboys tried what teams always try in that situation: A desperate, Stanford band-style, multiple-lateral play. What was crazy about this particular play was how close it came to working — thanks in part to multiple players on the Packers seeming to think the game had ended while the play was still going on.
Players were just standing around. It ain’t over until the fat lady sings, and time on the clock doesn’t matter until the last play is whistled dead.
Almost made it but fun to watch.
