New York Giants coach Joe Judge was livid and threw his headset after a penalty brought back a touchdown late in the first half against the Dallas Cowboys.

Judge called up a fake field goal play with a third-and-4 at the 27-yard line. Punter Riley Dixon took the snap and found tight end Evan Engram on the right side for a touchdown. The score would have given New York a one-touchdown lead.

Instead, the Giants were called for an illegal shift, the touchdown was taken off the board and they were pushed back 5 yards.

Judge was immediately irate on the sideline and slammed his headset into the ground. He ensured everyone knew exactly how he felt by pulling down his face mask to yell “bulls---” toward the field.

On replay, it appears Cam Fleming didn’t get set on the line before the snap, prompting the call. The Giants settled for a 50-yard field goal by Graham Gano to take a 20-17 lead.

Despite pouring it on the Cowboys early, they went into the half trailing, 24-20, after Dak Prescott led Dallas to a last-minute touchdown in the first half.
