Down by 10 points late in the third quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys needed a spark. That’s exactly what punter Chris Jones delivered when he took off running on a fake punt, gaining 30 yards on the play.

This gutsy play was actually designed as a potential pass play, but Jones definitely made the right decision to keep the ball and skirt around the left side of Philly’s defense.
This set up a 23-yard field goal that cut the Eagles’ lead over the Cowboys to just one score, 20-13.
