Rain falls briefly through Cowboys Stadium roof

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)

A little rain will fall - even at Cowboys Stadium.

The roof was open for Thursday's game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins, and there was a brief period of rain early in the second quarter.

It was the first time since the stadium opened in 2009 that rain fell while the roof was open during a Cowboys game.

Nothing like Thanksgiving Day 1993 when the Texas Stadium field was covered in snow. That is the game known for Leon Lett's gaffe of touching a loose ball after a blocked field goal, setting Miami up at the 1 for another kick that won the game.

Unlike the $1.2 billion dollar stadium the Cowboys now call home, the hole in the roof at Texas Stadium couldn't get closed.
