In Week 3 of the 2022 season, the Dallas Cowboys scored 10 points in the fourth quarter and beat the Giants, 23-16, thanks to WR CeeDee Lamb‘s go-ahead, one-handed touchdown grab.
That catch is something New York corner Adoree’ Jackson said he hasn’t forgotten about. Especially because he was injured for the second matchup against Dallas and didn’t get the opportunity to go up against Lamb again.
“We talked about on the sideline, me and Rome [DB coach Jerome Henderson] did,” Jackson told reporters. “I remember that vividly, asking what I could have done better, this, that, and the third. Played it through the hands, played it through the pocket, it was one of those where the quarterback put it where he needed to put it. He stuck his left hand out there and caught it one-handed.
“So, it was one of those things where you don’t really harp too much on it. It’s one of those things where it could go 50/50, could have been a bad throw, doesn’t catch it or whatever it may be, I can get my hand on it. Just for me, just keep playing my technique, playing your game. It’s never a situation where you go out of your frame of work, you go out of your frame of body and think that you need to do anything different. Just keep doing what you’ve been doing and go from there.”
Jackson won’t have to wait long to get his rematch, as the Giants take on the Cowboys in Week 1 on Sunday at 8:20 p.m. Still, the play is something that sticks with him.
“It was a great throw and catch,” Jackson said. “Caught it kind of, not on his helmet, but dang near. Threw that way. We always talk about when we are playing in the red zone, make sure that they throw it to the back pylon, which they did, you don’t want to have anything cross your face or be anything in…
