EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (CBSDFW.COM) – A little late for Halloween, but just in time to interrupt Monday Night Football between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
A black cat ran onto and around part of the field with about four minutes to go in the first half with the Cowboys trailing 9-3.READ MORE: Shooting And Flipped Vehicle Results In Section Of LBJ Freeway In Balch Springs Shut Down For Hours
State Troopers on the field tried to corral the cat, but it was the cat that decided when it was time to go, and after a few minutes left the field and down a side tunnel in the stadium.
The crowd cheered.
After the cat left the field, the Giants got a field goal, the Cowboys scored a touchdown and then Bret Maher kicked a 52-yard field goal for the Cowboys as time expired in the first half to give Dallas a 13-12 lead.
The Cowboys scored 10 points in the final minute of the first half.
