The Dallas Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins 19-16 on Sunday, Dec. 6. The Cowboys overall record is now 4-8, and they are fourth in NFC East. The Redskins are 5-7, and are in first place in NFC East.
Dallas plays their next game on Sunday, Dec. 13 against the Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay is 8-4, and first in NFC North.
The Redskins play the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Dec. 13. Chicago is 5-7 and is third place in NFC East.
Matt Cassel threw for 223 yards, completing 16 out of 29 passes.
Darren McFadden led the Dallas offense in rushing. He carried the ball 14 times for 53 yards. He had one touchdown and his longest run was nine yards.
Terrance Williams led the Cowboys in receiving. Williams caught two passes for 63 yards. His longest reception was 38 yards.
Washington’s Kirk Cousins completed 22 out of 31 passes, amassing 219 yards through the air. He had one touchdown.
Matt Jones led the Redskins in rushing. Jones ran the ball 18 times for 49 yards. His longest run was 10 yards.
DeSean Jackson led the Washington offense in receiving. That game he caught six passes for 80 yards. His touchdown was his longest reception. It was 28 yards.
I was shocked that the Redskins won. After beating the Giants, I figured that they’d be romping over other NFC East teams. The Cowboys aren’t going far this season, but a win is a win.
