Thanksgiving 1974 - How Sweet It Is
I remember it like it was yesterday ... Thanksgiving, 1974. Cowboys vs. Redskins. Roger Staubach gets knocked out of the game. Backup Clint Longley has to come in. Cowboys losing, 16-3. Playoff chances over with a loss. Things look bleak. And then ... Longley leads them to two touchdowns. It's 23-17 Redskins, but only 28 seconds left to play. Longley fades back and lofts a Hail Mary to number 88, Drew Pearson. Pearson gets behind the Redskins secondary .... for a 50-yard touchdown! Best Thanksgiving ever! You can catch the second half highlights over on YouTube. -- Gerry
