Black cat that rushed NFL field is announced as a starter

CNN 5 days ago
A brave black cat took to the field during the Cowboys-Giants NFL football game to show off his sprints, delaying the game as he scurried all over MetLife Stadium.

Last week, no one knew the random black cat that delayed Monday's NFL game. This week, the cat's been announced as a starter for the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys listed the black cat as "MVP Rally Cat" in a tweet announcing this week's starting lineup against the Minnesota Vikings. The graphic also included the blue Cowboys star in the pupil of the cat.

The frantic feline took to the field during the second quarter Monday when the Cowboys were playing the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Evading New Jersey state troopers, the cat scored its own touchdown and the crowd -- Cowboys and Giants fans alike -- erupted in cheers. The cat then disappeared into a tunnel and into the night.

    The cat was bad luck for the Giants, but good luck for the Cowboys, who won 37-18.

    Cowboys fans can only hope the black cat luck continues as they play the Vikings.

    CNN's Elizabeth Wolfe and Justin Lear contributed to this report.
