Cowboys’ Michael Gallup leaps over the pylon for Dallas score
In terms of wide receivers, Amari Cooper gets all of the attention when opposers face the Dallas Cowboys offense. He deserves that type of attention. However, that doesn’t mean defenses can stop Dallas’ receivers. Michael Gallup, a second-year deep-threat with athleticism coaches can gush over, exists.
On Monday, during Dallas’ divisional tilt with the New York Giants, Gallup made an impression on the nation. Watch the Colorado State product make an uber-athletic play to expand the Cowboys’ lead below.

First off, before talking about the catch and ensuing scamper, the throw must be appreciated. Dak Prescott lasered that pass — which got over a defender — to Gallup. Then, the receiver did not let his quarterback down.
Watch again and again. Gallup somehow kept his feet in play, lept over a defender, then seemingly flipped into the end zone. What a play by the Cowboys’ second receiving option.
