    If you're my age or older you remember this like it was yesterday. I used to love these Game of the Week shows, which was often all I saw of the Cowboys game played the week before (in the regular season). Playoff games, of course, were televised nationally.

    EDIT: looks like you have to follow the link to Youtube to watch it. Outdoor football, on dirt, in Minnesota. Imagine that.

    That was a great day. I watch it once in a while and it always makes me smile. The look on old Bud Grants face was priceless.

    Too funny ,my little brother (about 6'3" 240,when I saw him last in 05)

    Texted me a couple of days ago STILL fuzzed up over that play!
    He was a vikes fan,me a cowboy's when we were kids(we still are,just bigger kids now)

    He can break it down from memory to me to THIS day just as vividly as when we watched it unfold back then,,,pretty hilarious.

    It was fantastic! What a game. In fact, Drew caught 2 Hail Marys in that game. Great Cowboy memory!
