The Cowboys ranked the black cat in the "MVP Rally Cat" category in a tweet announcing this week's training against the Minnesota Vikings. The chart also included the blue star of the Cowboys in the cat pupil.
The frenzied feline entered the field in the second quarter on Monday as the Cowboys faced the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. By avoiding New Jersey state soldiers, the cat scored his own touch and the crowd – fans of Cowboys and Giants – burst with joy. The cat then disappeared into a tunnel and into the night.
The cat was unlucky for the Giants, but good luck for the Cowboys, who won 37-18.
Cowboys fans can only hope that the black cat's luck persists as they face the Vikings.
