The Dallas Cowboys have a 13-7 lead over the Carolina Panthers, thanks in part to a fortunate officials’ decision. Dak Prescott completed a pass to tight end Dalton Schultz on Dallas’ second touchdown drive, but he was dropped on a perfect form tackle by Panthers defensive back Jeremy Chinn. Chinn appeared to have dislodged the ball while making the hit. The refs, however, ruled Schultz’s forward progress was halted, allowing the Cowboys to keep possession. Prescott later connected with Schultz’s tight end partner Blake Jarwin for a touchdown, putting the home team up by six points.
