CeeDee Lamb’s acrobatic catch and run gives Cowboys first touchdown
ARLINGTON, Texas — CeeDee Lamb thought he had a toe touchdown against the New York Giants last week, only to see the official’s call was after a challenge from the Dallas Cowboys.
On the Cowboys’ second drive against the Indianapolis Colts, Lamb was not denied this time on a 20-yard catch by Dak Prescott.
Just before the first down, Lamb rolled over Colt’s safety Rodney McLeod, put his left hand on the ground to keep his knees off the turf, and sprinted into the end zone, knocking Isaiah Rodgers to the rim for the Cowboys’ first score.
At least two Colts defenders slowed play after they thought Lamb was down, but the receiver wisely continued without blowing a whistle.

In the fourth quarter of last week, Lamb seemed to get both feet on a pass from Prescott, but referee Scott Novak said Lamb’s heel was out.
“Man, they killed me with that,” Lamb said. “I needed that touchdown.”
He got the against the Colts, with the replay official confirming the game.
For Lamb, it was his sixth touchdown of the season and fourth in the last five games as he continues to show he deserves the No. 1 wide receiver pick.
The touchdown pass was the 154th of Prescott’s career and passed Roger Staubach for the fourth all-time in team history. He needs one more to tie Danny White for third all-time.
