On Sunday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys whipped the Washington Football Team 56-14. It shouldn’t surprise that the Cowboys did some remarkable feats in a game that was essentially perfect. They achieved an unusual feat that is unlikely to be repeated anytime soon.
Jon Machota, of The Athletic, tweeted that “Tonight is a first in Dallas Cowboys history that an offensive and defensive lineman (DeMarcus) score in the same game.”
In case you missed it, here is Terence Steele’s touchdown catch. He was open during the play.
This was an unusual touchdown for an offensive lineman. The Cowboys didn’t need any tricks to score. It will be remembered as one of most meticulous and methodical whippings in the 2021 NFL season.

The Dallas defense was unable to be stopped. Defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence displayed not only his hand skills, but also his incredible speed in open field as he returned an interception for touchdown.
This play showcases Lawrence’s amazing hands and agility to move between the Washington player down the sideline. He scored his first touchdown as a Boise State player on his second NFL interception.
DEMARCUS LAWRENCE DOES IT HIMSELF

NFL teams should be concerned about the Dallas Cowboys playoff team. They are one of the most dangerous and powerful teams in the league, and they have weapons all around them.
Trevon Dibble and Micah Parsons both played like the NFL Defensive Players of the Year in the Cowboys’ defense. In his first season at Penn State, nobody has found the secret recipe to block Parsons.
He’s simply posted record-breaking numbers. He’s the only rookie to have recorded 75 tackles or more and 10 sacks or more in 2021. He is currently 1.5 sacks short of breaking the NFL rookie record for sacks. Former Tennessee Titan defensive line Jevon KEARSE set the record at 14.5 sacks.
Trevon Diggs scored his 11th interception in Sunday’s match against Washington. Since Everson walls did it back in 1981, he’s now the first Cowboys player who has intercepted 11 passes. It was the first time in 40 years that no player has done it. It is an amazing feat, without a doubt.
The Cowboys (1-4 in total) are thriving, just in the nick of time for the NFL playoffs.
