Turnovers make Jason Witten sick.

The Dallas Cowboys’ veteran tight end took a bite out of the New York Giants defense Sunday night, but the contest was a gut-churning, fumble-and-bumble fest for both teams.

Witten’s play was a saving grace for Dallas. He finished the night with 70 yards receiving and two crucial touchdowns, though Cowboys fans were likely concerned when they saw their tight end cooking up a vomlette on the Dallas sideline.

The incident was noticed by Samer Kalaf of Deadspin (via Josh Sanchez of Fansided), who has provided us all with a delicious GIF of the delightful spewing action.

Cameras were following an injured/frustrated Tony Romo as he stalked down the sideline when Witten appeared to vomit in the background. 

Granted, some players like to swish water in their mouths and spit it out, but if that’s water, it came from the rustiest well in Dallas. Based on the sheer volume of the expulsion, it’s likely not Gatorade, either.

Despite vomiting up a stream of Big Red soda, Witten finished out the game, and the Cowboys won, 36-31. Witten’s touchdowns were Romo’s only scoring throws on the night, as star wide receiver Dez Bryant failed to find daylight in the Giants' secondary.

A veteran in his 11th season with the Cowboys, Witten is still a reliable (if not quiet) part of the Cowboys offense. With his two touchdowns against the Giants, the 31-year-old tight end is already one shy of matching his total touchdowns for the 2012-13 season.

Witten is a tough nut to crack. He’s fumbled five times in his 11-year NFL career, and he’s not going to let a little liquid burping take him out of the game.
