WATCH: Wright’s timely INT leads to Grier-Fehoko TD strike for Cowboys

·1 min read

This preseason hasn’t been a friendly one to cornerback Nahshon Wright but he finally got some redemption late in the first half against the Seahawks. The Cowboys 2021 third-round pick has been picked on at times in the preseason but found himself on the other end of an errant throw from Seattle’s Drew Lock. The Seahawks were beginning their two-minute drill but Wright stopped the momentum right after a 22-yard gain put them near midfield.

Wright’s interception is the second of the game for the Cowboys, the first being by safety Israel Mukuamu in the first quarter. Wright started the big play on the outside and read Lock’s eyes to slip down to the receiver underneath and the Seattle quarterback never saw him.

The takeaway set up the Dallas offense in strong field position at the Seahawks 31-yard line. With a 13-3 deficit, the Cowboys took the opportunity to close the gap. Quarterback Will Grier got the drive rolling with a 16-yard scramble and finished it with a strike to wide receiver Simi Fehoko, who was wide open in the back of the end zone.

The touchdown is Grier’s first of the preseason and Fehoko’s second.  Heading into halftime, the Cowboys made it a 13-10 game with plenty of time in their final preseason contest.
