The Washington Redskins began tonight’s match-up with division foe Dallas in dubious fashion. Jason Campbell led Fred Davis too much, resulting in a tipped ball which was picked off at about the 50 yard-line and returned to the Redskins’ 35. Shortly it was Dallas 7, Washington 0. The next Washington drive was defined by a Santana Moss offensive holding penalty. The Redskins couldn’t recover, and were unable to move the ball into Dallas territory.
The Redskins’ defense is playing tough, bending but only breaking once. That may not be good enough, as the Cowboys will receive the ball to start the 2nd quarter. As the TV announcers noted, London Fletcher got away with a forearm to the head of Patrick Crayton. Thankfully, Crayton was not injured.
There’s not much else to say. The ‘Skins can’t let Dallas get ahead by two scores. Fortunately, the 12th man showed up big-time tonight. Go Skins!
