Video: Cowboys QB Dak Prescott connects with Michael Gallup for huge TD vs. Packers
The Dallas Cowboys needed to get back on the scoreboard down 31-3 to the Green Bay Packers with 2:09 left in the third quarter. Luckily, a Dak Prescott 40-yard connection to wide receiver Michael Gallup came on 2nd-and-4.

Both the throw and the catch are impressive on the touchdown play. Prescott was being hit while making the throw, and couldn’t quite deliver it all the way. Meanwhile, Gallup made a physical play at the point of attack and finished it with the strength to deflect an incoming tackle.
Though the Cowboys got off — very — slow, the Prescott to Gallup touchdown keeps them in the game. Three minutes after the score, running back Ezekiel Elliott punched in a two-yard touchdown to narrow Green Bay’s lead to 14.
Gallup is playing his first game since facing (and beating) the Washington Redskins in Week 2. The second-year wide receiver went under the knife to have knee surgery after the Washington game.
