Dak Prescott’s massive Cowboys coin-toss gaffe leaves fans fuming in LA Rams win

Dak Prescott left Dallas Cowboys fans furious after his request was misheard by referee Walt Anderson.

The NFC East side saw off last year’s Super Bowl finalists 44-21 in a crushing win.

And one man they have to thank is Prescott, who made two touchdown passes and 212 passing yards.

“We defer to second half.”

And the NFL official accepts this while the team prepares for the kick off.

Anderson did not appear, though, to hear the 26-year-old asking to defer, thinking the Cowboys start wanted to start the game with a kick.

It meant the NFC West side were allowed to receive the ball in the first and second half.

The NFL officials did correct the decision, though, as the Rams kicked to start the second half.
