The Philadelphia Eagles won the first half against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. Their NFC East rival, however, made an effort to make the game more exciting after the break.
Jalen Hurts was able to connect with DeVonta Smith, a wide receiver, to win the game.
Many analysts and fans pointed out that the referees may have missed a call after this score. The Eagles might have had some ineligible players downfield on the play-action pass.
I'm not saying the Cowboys were going to win this game if this call was made, but geez, refs. The LOS is the 7. The entire Eagles line is inside the 5 when the throw is made. Any chance we might enforce the rules? pic.twitter.com/52Se4KidqB
