The Dallas Cowboys' Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks has provided more fireworks than the usual Thursday night matchups. The first half saw a pair of touchdowns by both sides and even more impressive plays made by the talented players on both offenses.

Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson got in on the fun by hurdling Seahawks defender Quandre Diggs in the second quarter.

On a second-and-8 from Dallas' own 27-yard line, quarterback Dak Prescott found Ferguson on a short pass. Ferguson extended the play by going up and over Diggs, who whiffed on the tackle after going low on the former Wisconsin standout.

Unfortunately Ferguson didn't get many yards after that and Seahawks linebacker Frank Clark gave him a big hit right after, but it was an impressive play to jumpstart the drive.

The tight end's highlight-reel catch and run set up a manageable 3rd-and-1, which Tony Pollard converted. The Cowboys ended up driving deep into Seattle territory and even scored a touchdown down on fourth down, but a holding penalty wiped out Prescott's score on the ground.

Instead, Dallas was forced to settle for a field goal. However, it's possible Mike McCarthy's squad wouldn't have put any points on the board if Ferguson didn't make the play he did.

The Cowboys will need all the scoring they can get to hold off the Seahawks' loaded passing attack. At the time of writing this article, Dallas holds a slim 20-14 lead with under a minute left before halftime.
