First loss for Dallas
What hurts the most is the fact that it was at home and against a divisional rival, something that hopefully won't come back to bite them in the ASS later on. Romo didn't have a bad game( 300 yards, 3 TDs) but he did throw a pick on a first down when the team was starting to move and gave the Redskins the ball at midfield, leading to a field goal and a 23-17 lead. But that's not what beat the Dallas Cowboys today. What it really came down to was not running the ball AND not stopping the run. What allowed the Redskins to control the ball was because of the run defense not stopping Portis particularly in the second half. It would have been one thing if Dallas stopped the run. Them not running the ball COMBINED with not stopping the other team from running it on them was what did them in. Hopefully, this causes the team to refocus. Cincinnati comes to town next and the Cowboys had better not be feeling charitable towards the hapless 0-4 Bengals. The Redskins have to play the Eagles next week so at least one of them will have TWO losses. So we'd better get well against Cincinnati.
