It was like a Cowboys wide receiver CD LambHis performance on Monday night will be remembered as a blunder until he hits a more positive moment in the fourth quarter.
Cowboys quarterback Cooper Rush hit a wide-open Lamb with a deep ball that would either turn into a touchdown or put the Cowboys in winning position, but Lamb missed the ball through his hands and the Cowboys didn’t score on that possession. The lack of points in that spot was one of the reasons the Cowboys and Giants drew 13–13 when the Cowboys got the ball in the fourth quarter to set the stage for Lamb’s redemption.
Rush hit Lamb four times for 48 yards on that drive, including a terrific one-handed catch in the end zone for a touchdown that put the Cowboys up for good. After the 23-16 victory was recorded in the books, Lamb said he was “ready do something to make upto make up for the fall and that he was grateful to the team for giving him the opportunity to do so.
“We preach resilience and willingness, and I was willing to put my body on the line for the other 10 guys and the other guys on the touchline,” Lamb said via the team’s website. “They believe in me, they trust my talent, and so do I. There will be ebb and flow. It’s all about being consistent and staying positive. Things won’t go the way I did, but when it does, things will go big.”
On Monday night, the lamb made great strides on both fronts, but in the end, the positives outweighed the negatives.
