The Dallas Cowboys came up big in Week 16 of the NFL season, winning America’s Game of the Week 40-34 on FOX. But the “Boys'” win over the Eagles, specifically their margin of victory, cost a contender $100,000 to win the FOX Bet Super 6.
In last week’s challenge, a Super 6 contestant had picked all the winners and margins of victory perfectly for the Eagles-Cowboys game.
After winning five of six games, this South Carolina player predicted that Dallas will come out on top.
What the Cowboys win against the Eagles on Christmas night says America’s Team
The Dallas Cowboys narrowly defeated the NFC East Philadelphia Eagles 40-34, largely due to Dak Prescott’s three touchdowns and 388 total yards.
However, based on how Philadelphia dominated most of the game, Terry Bradshaw’s $100,000 jackpot seemed to be completely out of reach. At the end of the first quarter, Philly led 10-7. At halftime, the Eagles were ahead of the Cowboys 20-17.
At the end of the third quarter, however, the score was tied at 27.
Suddenly, the outlook for the Super 6 player was hopeful. All they needed was for the Cowboys to win by 8 to 10 points, and Terry’s $100,000 would be all theirs.
With 5:49 left in the game, CeeDee Lamb caught a seven-yard pass from Dak Prescott and Brett Maher added the PAT. This tied the game at 34.
Finally, Dallas finished the game with two more field goals to beat the Eagles by a score of 40-34. That margin of victory fell a couple of points short of what the future winner needed to earn a six-figure payout.
Ugh, if only one of those last two field goals was a touchdown. So close we could practically taste it!
Although our almost winner didn’t take the money last week, people actually win. And while this was a tough loss for the contestant to swallow, all is not lost because there is another huge prize in the pot for the next NFL roster.
