Cowboys – Redskins: Halftime


It’s halftime.  The Redskins were hanging in there and seemed to be gaining confidence on offense.  They executed their two-minute drill from their own goal line, passing their way out to the 20 immediately.  Portis is blocking viciously, but he dropped a pass that would have made up the yardage the Skins lost on a 15-yard penalty.  With half-a-minute to go, the Skins had to punt from inside their 20.  Fortunately, they did just enough to make Dallas burn their last two timeouts before the punt. 

The Skins’ punt wasn’t great, but the ball took a great Redskins’ roll.  Dallas started on their 30.  After a quick-out on first down, Romo threw a duck deep to avoid Orakpo.  Then, Romo hit Dez Bryant to move the ball to the Cowboys’ 42.  The Skins are blitzing heavily now.  Sure enough, Dallas held with 4 ticks on the clock.  And, what did the STUPID Cowboys do?  Romo flips the ball to Tashard Choice who has it stripped by DeAngelo Hall, and boom shakala, Hall runs it in to make it 10 to 0.  Now that’s what I call divine intervention, sought of.  I don’t know whether to thank God or thank Jason Garret.

I’m so happy, I’m going to go call my friend in Dallas and see if she actually answers the phone.  Go Skins!
