After winning the toss, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott told the official they wanted to kick and did not say “we’ll defer.” Thus, the Cowboys kicked off to begin the game and will kick off to start the second half.

Wow. Dak Prescott didn’t say “defer” so Rams will get ball to start game AND to start 2nd half. First time in NFL history. pic.twitter.com/R1lXB8x3MH

Excuse me, what? First the fact that this is a rule is absolutely insane. As someone who has money on the Rams I can not believe this is an actual thing. I’ve been watching football for 20 years and have never heard of this and from the looks of it no one else has either.
Second, if your Jason Garrett you need to make sure you know this rule and that your captains are overly aware of it. That goes for every team. Everyone calling for Garrett’s job is a moron though. Should he have a job? No. Is this why? No. Get over yourself.
As I’m writing this it turns out Dak didn’t even fuck up! He did say he wanted to defer it. This has conspiracy written all over it, this ref has money on the game.
