Films Encore: Harper Steals Irvin’s Thunder

Dallas Cowboys, Films Encore, Nick Condit, Tales from the Vault

Two years ago, Michael Irvin hosted a reality competition show called “4th and Long.”  When Jesse Holley won it, he earned a chance to try out with the Dallas Cowboys.  Holley made the most of his opportunity, first making the Cowboys practice squad, then the active roster.  Yesterday, his realty-TV story became a dream come true, when he set up Dallas’ game-winning field goal with a long catch-and-run in overtime against the 49ers.

Let’s take a look back at another play between the Cowboys and 49ers in which Michael Irvin had a hand.  It came in the 1992 NFC Championship game when, once again, an unlikely receiver set up the game-winning play.
