The Dallas Cowboys were forced to punt the ball midway through the third quarter against the San Francisco 49ers and we got a rarity. Cowboys punter Bryan Anger booted the ball directly into the scoreboard that hangs over the center of the field. The refs ruled it a dead ball and a re-kick.
It’s notable the Cowboys benefitted from the re-kick. When Anger booted it off the scoreboard, it came down around the 30 yard line. When he re-punted, Anger kicked it 48 yards and the 49ers fair catch set them up at their own 7 yard line.
