Well that day the Dallas team was facing the Cardinals of St. Louis. This would be the stop they made right after Chicago and before Arizona.
Pretty soon, after several attempts that yielded positive yards, the cornerback for the Cardinals started inching up on that play. He was ready, willing, and able to snatch that ball from an unsuspecting White/Renfro and haul it the other way for points.
The next time Renfro ran the out, he added a slightly different wrinkle. He broke to the sidelines, as he was want to do from time to time, and then turned up field.

Needless to say the White to Renfro pass produced six points and Dallas went on to win that game.
Of course this wasn't as famous a toss as Tinker to Evers to Chance. Which is a story that old guy who started this mess will have to relate.
But it was pert near perfect for an October afternoon, many moons ago.
I thought Renfro was a very good player for Dallas, when healthy. He burned the Redskins and the Giants on similar plays in 1985. He and White had the timing down on that out pattern.
