Last night’s “Monday Night Football” matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants was briefly interrupted in bizarre fashion.

With just under six minutes remaining in the second quarter, a black cat was suddenly spotted running all over the field.  The cat ran around the field for a few minutes, evading a horde of security personnel before it was corralled and taken off the field.

The Giants, who were winning at the time, went on to lose the game in typical embarrassing fashion, 37-18.

This stroke of bad luck comes right in the middle a dreadful season for the Giants.  After benching long-time quarterback Eli Manning in the third week of the season, the Giants have only won two games.

Those wins came against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins.  Combined, those two teams have 3 wins in 17 games this season.

So, the bad luck continues for the Giants.  After this black cat invasion, maybe the Cowboys should have been penalized for 12 men on the field.
