Watch: Cowboys’ Lamb toe-tap leads to Maher thumbing nose at interfering refs

The Cowboys had the ball at their own 14-yard line with 31 seconds left. Quarterback Dak Prescott slowly marched down the field with quick throws before delivering a dime to wide receiver CeeDee Lamb for 27 yards.

Lamb taught a toe-tap masterclass on the play, clearly keeping both feet in while securing the ball. This set up kicker Brett Maher for a 60-yard kick, which he drew inside the right upright for his NFL record fourth 60+ yard field goal. It was 23-3 Dallas for a moment until the officials made a shocking change.

The crew announced that they were reviewing Lamb’s highlight grab and allegedly made the call before Maher’s booming kick. Lamb’s catch was clear, and the review appeared as a ploy to keep the score closer to the Cowboys faithful. Nonetheless, Maher walked right back on the field and made it no doubt right between the uprights for the 60-yard field goal, which might as well be a 120-yarder.

The make was followed by a furious celebration by Prescott as Maher walked off the field with some swagger. Thanks to the kick, Dallas goes to the locker room with a 23-3 lead and receives the ball to start the second half.
