Monday Moment: Dak Prescott Fools The Giants For A Touchdown

Welcome, world. It's time for another installment in our series.

This week, we travel to East Rutherford, New Jersey where the and played each other to a standstill for much of four quarters. As you all know, the Cowboys ended up losing a very tough and defensive-dominated game on this Sunday night, but we are here to break down one of their most creative offensive plays of the entire season.

In fact, their first and only touchdown from this Sunday night loss might be my favorite individually isolated play from the entire .

also does what he does best, selling the pitch left with authority and then rolling out to his right.

So, New York bites.

Mayle continues across the line of scrimmage, and gets out into the right flats. The Giants does a decent job of recovering on Mayle, and chasing him out to the sideline. Where they messed up, however, was in losing track of

Williams does an excellent job of sneaking behind the linebackers, and getting lost in the play action shuffle. Staying disciplined (well, trying) to Elliott's run threat, the near side comes up field and begins to angle towards Zeke.

Because of this over-aggression, Williams is left wide open down the field for the easiest touchdown of the entire season. This throw and catch gave the Cowboys a 7-0 lead, and had thinking they were in for a happy night.

Of course, things didn't end well on this game, but it's still an extremely impressive play nonetheless.
