The Dallas Cowboys are getting really creative with their play-calling this season.
In the second quarter of the Cowboys-Steelers game, the Cowboys nearly scored a touchdown on a brilliant lateral play off a Steelers punt.
Cowboys getting tricky with it on special teams 👀 @dallascowboys

Apparently, the Cowboys had C.J. Goodwin fake a hamstring injury while running down the field before catching the ball on the play.
Really nice fake punt return here by Dallas. Watch 29 pretend like he had a hamstring injury and start limping.
He’s the guy who catches the throwback. Great sell on the fake injury pic.twitter.com/5u7aqxdyOp
