A black cat turned out to be a bad omen for the New York Giants on Monday (November 4) night. Late in the second quarter, with the Giants leading the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 9-3, the feline wandered onto the field near the endzone.
The game was interrupted for about two minutes while state police tried to capture the cat. It eventually ran into the endzone before briefly jumping into the stands. As Giants fans ran for cover, the cat jumped back onto the field and then disappeared through the tunnel as the fans cheered.
That was one of the last things fans at MetLife Stadium had to cheer about. The Cowboys would go on to outscore the Giants 34-9 en route to a 37-18 victory.
When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones saw the cat, he thought it was bad news for his team, who lost to the New York Jets earlier this season.
"I haven't seen one glare at me that far away before," Jones said. "I know he was looking at me the whole time he was out there. But things did kind of change when that black cat came out."
Officials at MetLife Stadium said they were unable to locate the cat and that is still on the loose.
