Beaten badly by DK Metcalf, Diggs chased down the Seahawks receiver before he crossed the goal line and punched the ball through the back of the end zone to force a touchback.
Instead of allowing their second touchdown pass of the first quarter of more than 40 yards, Diggs' play gave the Cowboys the ball at their 20. It went down as a 62-yard completion but it could have been much worse for a Cowboys defense that has been susceptible to the big play.
The game at Seattle's CenturyLink Field was tied 9-9 midway through the second quarter.
Great hustle by #DallasCowboys rookie @TrevonDiggs 👏— NFL (@NFL) September 27, 2020
The @dallascowboys get the ball back following the touchback.
