Hails and Fails: The best and worst of the Redskins loss to the Cowboys


The Best and worst of the Washington Redskins 31-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.  The Redskins offensive line failed to give RGIII the protection he needed.  Here are some more success and failures from the Redskins loss.

 

Hail:  London Fletcher and Perry Riley – The Inside linebackers Fletcher and Riley had their best game as a tandem this season.  They were outstanding in coverage and against the run.

Fail:  More missed Tackles - This missed tackle by Josh Wilson was huge, as Dallas QB Tony Romo scrambled away to complete a touchdown pass to Terrence Williams.

Hail:  Rookie TE Jordan Reed – The rookie continues his impressive first season as he had 4 receptions for 59 yards, and more than likely should have caught even more balls.

Fail:  Special Teams - The special teams gave up an 86 yard punt return for a touchdown and a 90 yard kick off return to set up another touchdown.  These plays were ultimately the difference in the game.

Hail:  DeAngelo Hall - The veteran cornerback had another very good performance, not only in coverage as Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was in check most of the game, but Hall was also a sure tackler laying down some good legal hits as well.

Fail:  The Redskins offensive line - The offensive line was pretty much dominated by the Cowboys defensive line the whole game.  Robert Griffin III could have used better protection, especially with Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware leaving the game with an injury..

Hail:  The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders – I know they cheer for the enemy and all, but still…..they deserve a Hail!
