Dexter Lawrence cost his New York Giants on Thursday night with a penalty.

Lawrence’s Giants were leading the Washington Football Team 29-27 with five seconds left. Washington was lining up for 48-yard field-goal attempt on 3rd-and-4 from the Giants 30.

Kicker Dustin Hopkins missed the kick wide to the right. But he was bailed out by a penalty flag thanks to Lawrence jumping offsides.

The penalty gave Washington five yards, a first down and a second kick attempt. This one was from 43 yards away, and Hopkins didn’t miss. Washington won 30-29 thanks to the second chance on the field goal.

You win as a team, you lose as a team, but it must really stink when your penalty cost your team the game.
