The Dallas Cowboys are wearing their blue jerseys that they break out on rare occasion, which generally tend to bring bad luck. Unfortunately for Dallas, the myth continued to ring true and they wasted no time making a crucial mistake that led to an early score by the Oakland Raiders on Thanksgiving afternoon.

Cowboys rookie wide receiver Terrance Williams made his way out of the endzone on the opening kickoff, when he was hit hard and put the ball on the ground. Raiders wide receiver and special teamer Greg Jenkins scooped up the ball and returned it for a touchdown.

The play was reviewed, as are all scoring plays, but there was inconclusive evidence and the score was upheld.

Here is a look at the play:

Dallas went three-and-out on their next drive and the score remains 7-0 with the Raiders taking over possession.

If the Cowboys go down 14-0 to an undrafted free agent rookie quarterback at home, mass panic will be settling in.
