The New York Giants took a lead in the third quarter of Monday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys with a spectacular touchdown run from Saquon Barkley. After quickly tying the game in the third quarter, the Cowboys answered with a highlight-reel caliber touchdown of their own, this own from CeeDee Lamb.
A critical drop from Lamb likely cost Dallas a touchdown in the first half. In the fourth quarter, though, he went a long way in atoning for that drop. Lamb not only pulled in a Cooper Rush pass with one hand but managed to get his feet down in bounds for a touchdown.

The NFL world heaped its collective praise on Dallas’ receiver in the moments after the tremendous touchdown catch.
No more silence of Lamb.

Have him credit when he earned it and criticism when he deserved it. That’s how it’s supposed to be. https://t.co/A0xCICCPNW

Lamb was a constant thorn in the side of New York’s secondary throughout that entire possession. He caught four passes for 48 yards. That included not only the touchdown reception but also a critical four-yard grab on fourth down to keep the drive moving.
The touchdown also ended a long scoring drought for Lamb. He had not scored a touchdown since Week 10 of the 2021 season when he caught two against the Atlanta Falcons. Including the postseason, that drought lasted 10 full games.
