The Dallas Cowboys may have run the worst play of the 2020 season on Thursday night.

In the fourth quarter of the Dallas-Washington Thanksgiving day game, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarrthy made the bold decision of busting out a fake punt on the team’s own 20-yard-line on 4th and 10 while down only four points that failed miserably.

Washington went on to score a few plays later to take a 27-16 lead and Cowboys fans were irate with McCarthy.



Update: McCarthy told the media that he felt the fake punt “was a good play call”.
