Dallas Cowboys Salvation Army celebration

The Dallas Cowboys took on the New York Giants in their annual Thanksgiving day game on Thursday. The game was a back-and-forth affair, but the tight end corps for Dallas helped turn the tide in the Cowboys’ favor, highlighted by one epic celebration by the group.

The celebration occurred in the fourth quarter after an innovative play call by Dallas that had rookie tight end Peyton Hendershot rush for a two-yard touchdown.

It was the first career rush attempt in Hendershot’s career, and it was a huge momentum swing for the Cowboys, giving them a 28-13 lead late in the fourth quarter.

While this was a well-executed play, it was perhaps an even better celebration coming from Hendershot and his fellow tight ends.

All active tight ends on the roster except for Hendershot jumped into the Salvation Army kettle behind the end zone, and Hendershot proceeded to play “whack-a-mole” as his teammates popped their heads up.

This celebration certainly got some rave reviews from many around the NFL world.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott famously made jumping into the Salvation Army kettle famous back in 2016, but this celebration took the antic to a whole new level.

The top three tight ends for the Cowboys all had great moments in Thursday’s game, so this awesome celebration was certainly justified.

Starting tight end Dalton Schultz had two big touchdown catches in the game from quarterback Dak Prescott.

Meanwhile, rookie tight end Jake Ferguson had potentially the most impressive highlight in the game with an insane hurdle over Giants cornerback Jason Pinnock.

The impressive game from all three tight ends ultimately resulted in a big 28-20 victory for the Dallas Cowboys, which propels them to 8-3 on the season.
