ARLINGTON, Texas – There was no real flash this time - no 78-yard punt return touchdown like last week in Philadelphia, no long catch and run for a score as he has managed in preseason games.
In fact, there weren’t any true highlights at all. But
He did have a nice punt return to help set up
“I didn’t even know there was a flag on the play,” Harris said. “He was shielding me from the ball. I felt like it should’ve been pass interference. … They got it right. It helped our team get downfield to get a field goal to take it to overtime.
“It feels good anytime I can help the team get a win or help the offense get good field position.”
In the most active offensive day of his career, Harris caught three passes for 20 yards. He equaled that total on an overtime punt return across midfield.
“When you keep doing stuff like that, a lot of people, I think they just respect our special teams more,” Harris said. “We continue to do what we do and have that success of special teams, we’re getting the respect that we deserve.”
Along with rookie
“I think he has just done a real good job understanding what his role is on this football team and really embracing it,” head coach Jason Garrett said. “We have a lot of confidence in him – not afraid to put him out there, and he’s responded really well.”
