Memorable Games between the Panthers and the Cowboys
The Panthers shock the Cowboys - On January 5, 1997, the Dallas Cowboys made their way to the Ericsson Stadium, now renamed the Bank of America Stadium, to take on the Carolina Panthers. The Cowboys had won three of the last four Super Bowls whereas the Panthers had existed for just two years. However, the Panthers had cinched the NFC West title that year. It looked like a straightforward walkover for the Cowboys in that postseason encounter. Nobody, however, gave that script to the Panthers.
The Panthers put up an inspiring performance and ran the Cowboys ragged. In a one-sided game, the Panthers came out on top 26-17 and removed the Cowboys from the playoffs. It was this encounter that announced their arrival as a team to be taken seriously.
The Cowboys mount a stunning comeback - Like they say, it ain’t over till the fat lady sings, and the Cowboys proved that on October 13, 2002. The Dallas Cowboys and the Carolina Panthers squared off once again, this time at the Texas Stadium, and it turned out to be an unforgettable game.
The Panthers began the game like a house on fire and went 13-0 up in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys had not been shut out at home for eleven years, but it looked as though that run was about to end. But then, the shell-shocked Cowboys woke up. Quincy Carter threw an 80 yard pass to Joey Galloway for a touchdown. The score was now 13-7.
Carter led the team forward once again and with just fifty-six seconds left on the clock, he threw a rocket of a pass to Antonio Bryant in the end zone, who juggled the ball but eventually held on to score the winning touchdown. The final score: Cowboys 14-Panthers 13.
