Another late afternoon game, another problem with the sun at the Dallas Cowboys’ home stadium.
The Cowboys frequently kick off at around 3 p.m. C.T., and the glare from the sun at AT&T Stadium can be an obstacle. It cost cornerback Jourdan Lewis a huge play.
The Chargers had the ball, 1st and 10, near midfield when quarterback Philip Rivers threw a pass that appeared destined to be intercepted. However, the pass was thrown directly into the glare and Lewis was not able to come down with the ball. That drive went on 10 more plays, and ended with a field goal for the Chargers.

Last year, the Cowboys played against the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving, and quarterback Kirk Cousins admitted that he had problems with visibility during the game. He told one of the referees that he couldn’t see, and the referee responded, “I can’t either.”
Through one half of play the Chargers have a 3-0 lead. The Chargers have been dominate with 224 yards of offense and 10 first downs, to the Cowboys’ 84 yards of offense and 5 first downs.
