ARLINGTON, Texas – The legend of Dak Prescott is … on maintain.
It was tackled inbounds and the clock ran out.
Prescott positive had his likelihood to inject some extra buzz, hope and debate into the indomitable Dallas Cowboys hype machine when the lights got here on for the common season at AT&T Stadium on Sunday. However simply when it appeared that the rookie quarterback would get all Staubachian and lead his workforce to a storybook victory in his NFL debut, the clock struck midnight.
The snapshot that outlined a 20-19 loss to the New York Giants was that of Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams crumbled to the turf after the sport ended, floored by the burden of what may need been.
Williams caught Prescott’s final go within the flat and opted to chop inside and combat for further yards — with no timeouts – quite than try and get out of bounds to cease the clock and no less than give the Cowboys an opportunity for an extended subject aim try. Just a few ft away, Dez Bryant waved furiously for his teammate to race to the sideline.
