You have to see Dak Prescott’s touchdown to Cole Beasley from this angle

It was a thing of beauty.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

It’s playoff time for the Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks are who they’ll have to vanquish if they want their season to continue. Dallas is headed into the game with some positive momentum they built up in New York, especially considering how the game ended.

The Cowboys chose to play some starters for the entirety of the game and it worked out about as great as they could have hoped. Dak Prescott led a fourth quarter comeback and hit Cole Beasley for the touchdown that won the game (after a Michael Gallup two point conversion). It was the least impactful game of the season for the Cowboys but also one of the most invigorating moments. Funny how football works.

This is one of the greatest throws of Dak Prescott’s career, it’s also one of the finer catches of Cole Beasley’s. Prescott manages to escape the pressure, roll out, and while on the move rifles a pass in the airspace of the Saucemaster. Cole gets there on time and thanks to an extra look the right call is made, Cowboys win the game. Hooray.

As incredible as the play looked on the broadcast, getting a look at it from Dak’s point of view makes it all the more amazing. You can fully see just how far he goes on the move and what’s more is you can see the anticipating that he releases with. He completely throws Cole Beasley open. It’s a thing of beauty.

Sunday is the next opportunity for the Cowboys to get the first playoff win of the Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott era. It certainly bodes well for them that their quarterback is entering the contest coming off such a performance that includes throws like this.

Hopefully it’s a sign of things to come.
