One of the worst games anyone would see on national stage end up becoming a chance for the other teams in the NFC East.
The Dallas Cowboys without quarterback Tony Romo pull out a win on the road against the Washington Redskins. This is the first time in the season the Cowboys won a game without Romo starting. But the game was as sloppy as what happened last Monday. By far the NFC East is the worst division in the league. It was clearly a field goal type of game until the fourth quarter, where the floodgates opened and each team finally converted a touchdown. Everything going against the Cowboys and yet they are only one game back for first place.
This is a crazy game,” Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant said after a wild finish was marked by Dallas and Washington combining for 17 of the game’s 23 fourth-quarter points in the final 74 seconds according to USA Today. Dan Bailey won it with a 54-yard field goal with 9 seconds left.
The Cowboys on offense were led by Matt Cassell. He manage the game well enough to have opportunities to score against the Redskins defense. But that scored came in the fourth and even he thought it was a bizarre game.
One of the craziest games I’ve ever been a part of,” said Cowboys quarterback Matt Cassel, whose NFL tenure spans 11 years and 5 teams. Cassel called it an “emotional rollercoaster.
The results of this game now even gives the New York Giants a chance to redeem themselves after another lead blown in the fourth quarter. Regardless of what happens in the last quarter of the season, week 17 for each team in the division will determine who goes to the playoffs.
