Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter admits to putting the cart before the horse when, near the end of the first half of the loss to the Chiefs, he dropped what looked like a surefire pick-six.
“I think I was thinking about the end zone before I had already caught it and took my eyes off the ball,” Carter said of the play, per ESPN Dallas. “I've just got to work at that in practice and just keep getting better.
“Whenever it comes again, I’ll be ready.”
Carter’s drop got a lot less press than Dez Bryant’s, which came in the fourth quarter and also would have very likely gone for a touchdown, but the third-year North Carolina product came away from the loss kicking himself a bit for not bringing his first career interception down. The defense had no turnovers against Kansas City, after recording five against the Giants.
“That was a play that I have to make to put my team in position to win,” Carter said. “We’ve got to capitalize on all those opportunities.”
