    It happened so quick. The Redskins ramming the ball down the heart of the Dallas defense on their first drive, all runs, ending in an A. Morris TD to make it 7-0. On the ensuing kickoff, D. Harris fumbles the short kickoff and gives Washington excellent field position. RGIII would take it in from the 1/2 yard line to make it 14-0. Somebody check the team bus!!! Where's the D???

    J. Echavaria would mount 2 scoring drives to even things up at 14-14. The teams would exchange FGs before things got interesting late in the 4th. The Redskins' FS B. Rambo would pick off Echavaria and Washington would convert the opportunity into a TD, making it 27-24. Dallas would take the ball all the way down to the 4. Instead of pounding the ball like they had been doing all 2nd half, a pass attempt into the endzone was picked off by B. Meriweather. However, instead of taking taking the touchback, he attempted to return the pick and got tackled at the 3. After 2 runs yielding little yardage, RGIII tried to take advantage of an all out blitz by Dallas on a quick out. SS J.J. Wilcox had other plans as he beautifully broke underneath the WR, picked off the pass and returned it for the TD, making it 31-27 Dallas. And that would be the final score.

    GG Jon!!!
