Does either team really want to win this game? The Redskins had a gift-wrapped chance to go up 17 to 0. Did they do that? Nope. They didn’t even go up 13 to 0. Josh Bidwell is having a bad game punting, and may have been the culprit on the botched field goal. I’m not sure though – the snap was a bit high.
The Redskins cannot let Dallas hang around. Too late – they have, and the Cowboys are in the red zone AGAIN. The Redskins continue to miss tackles in space. They’ve got to keep Dallas out of the end zone. Haynesworth is making his presence felt, fortunately. Nonetheless, Romo just hit a wide open Miles Austin for 6. Reed Doughty went for the play action fake. Urgh!!!!!
A quick word about our Lead Writer. Ryan is at the game. I’m jealous.
Okay, the Skins have the ball – Portis ran for 8, which is very nice to see. The third quarter is over – the Skins have a second and something in Cowboys’ territory. Sellers caught a short pass for what I think was a five yard gain. Not absolutely sure yet.
Washington needs to get six points. They can win if they don’t, but it won’t be easy or likely. Controlling the clock now would be wonderful. Nope – McNabb was sacked. Great punt this type. The Cowboys will start just inside their 20.
