Brett Maher casually nails 60-yard FG vs. Vikings after 1st make was wiped out due to replay review
Brett Maher and the Dallas Cowboys are in Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Vikings. Dallas leads 23-3 at halftime courtesy of a 60-yard field goal by the former Nebraska kicker.
But it was the events leading up to the make that raised some eyebrows, though.
Maher actually made his original attempt from 60 yards out just inside the right crossbar to give the Cowboys a 20-point lead at the break. However, the officials blew the play dead extremely late to review a catch down the sideline by CeeDee Lamb, which was upheld.
That meant that Maher had to do it again from 60. And, as you can see below, he delivered once more.

Cowboys fans were rightfully fired up by the late whistle of the officiating crew to wipe out the original Maher make. But Maher coolly stepped up and made good on his re-do to end the 1st half.
The Vikings have showed a knack for late-game comebacks all season long. Do they have another one in them, or will the Cowboys leave the Twin Cities with a 7th win?
