The Dallas Cowboys are fully embracing their good-luck charm. Yes, the black cat that ran on the field during their Week 9 matchup with the New York Giants, has now been dubbed "Rally Cat" by the franchise.

Before Sunday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings, the Cowboys introduced their offensive starters on the videoboard and the last "starter" was a bit of a surprise:

Yes, they've apparently named him their MVP and given him Tony Romo's old number.

The players and fans have gotten into the spirit too:

If you weren't paying attention, during Monday night's matchup between the Cowboys and Giants, a black cat ran onto the field at MetLife Stadium. The Cowboys trailed when the cat made an apperance and rallied in the second half to win 37-18.

And before you ask, yes it was all because of the cat.
