Dallas Cowboys' Chris Jones' punt hit the AT&T Stadium scoreboard during his team's preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

The Dallas Cowboys' Chris Jones' punt was right on target.  

Unfortunately, the target was the video scoreboard at AT&T Stadium. 

According to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News, "Chris Jones' 47-yard punt struck the bottom of the HD screen suspended 90 feet above the field before falling to the turf and rolling to Cincinnati's 23-yard line." The incident occurred in the first quarter of the Cowboys' preseason 24-18 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.  

Jones narrated the event in his own words. 

"I got every piece of the ball and it ended up hitting the scoreboard." 

Sabin points out the incident marks only the second time ever when "Jerrytron" was hit by a punt. The first was courtesy of the Tennessee Titans' A.J. Trapasso four years ago during an exhibition game.

ESPN's Todd Archer adds Trapasso's kick hit a Mitsubishi Electric sign under the board which was moved to the top. It has since been taken out completely. 

Archer also writes officials didn't notice Jones' punt hit the board. They had to resort to video replay which resulted in the Cowboys punting again.  

On the second go-around, the Bengals' punt returner, Brandon Tate, returned Jones' punt for a 75-yard touchdown, giving them a 7-0 lead. 

In spite of this, Dallas owner Jerry Jones seemed to brush everything off, per Sabin. He said,"I'm not concerned about our special teams any more than I am any place else." 

It's a good thing the game's final outcome went the Cowboys' way.
