The biggest Dallas Cowboys playmaker so far? Easy, (No.) 38.
Cowboys fans were able to sleep soundly Sunday night after Jeff Heath made a heroic play to save the Cowboys’ season in a 20-17 victory over the Raiders.
With seconds left in the game, QB Derek Carr made an effort to run the ball for a touchdown that would’ve given Oakland the lead to ultimately win the game.
As Carr extended mid-air to reach the ball across the pylon, Heath sprinted across the field and forced a fumble in the end zone. It was then Dallas’ ball and victory.

It was like something out of a fairytale. The Cowboy’s season was just inches away from ending and here comes super Safety Heath to the rescue. The effort we watched during those last few seconds was truly amazing.
But Heath is no stranger to making plays.
He leads the team with three interceptions, one of which was caught against Kansas City to give QB Alex Smith his first thrown interception of the season.
Heath’s post-season performance against Green Bay last season really set the tone for what this young safety is capable of. He managed to get in three tackles and two interceptions against the bad man Rodgers. Heath was arguably the biggest reason why the Cowboys stood a chance that day.
However, statistically, Jeff Heath isn’t the most impactful player on the roster. He’s simply a player who is at the right place and time to make GOAT plays.

And one thing is definitely certain, he gave this Cowboys team one more chance to continue a playoff run.
Thanks of Jeff Heath, the Cowboys live to fight another day.
