Redskins come back to force tie with Cowboys

Tony Romo settled into a bit of a groove, and the Redskins remembered who they were.

As a result, we’re effectively where we started, with the Cowboys and Redskins tied 7-7 at halftime of the de facto first playoff game.

Romo overcame a pair of early picks to get the Cowboys on the board first (though he might have gotten a break on the play-clock) with a touchdown pass to Jason Witten.

The Redskins responded by doing what they do best, run the ball. With rookie Alfred Morris running 13 times for 92 yards, they are beginning to wear on the Cowboys defense a bit. Morris’ 17-yard touchdown evened things.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III looks like a man coming off a knee injury, or a rookie. He’s looked far less than dynamic, and only a solid defense, Morris and Romo are keeping him in this thing.

    What a gift to get the two NFC West teams in the playoffs for the Redskins. Easy path to the NFC Championship game.

    What do you mean “he might have gotten a break on the play-clock”? It was a missed penalty, clearly. Cowboys might have scored even with it, we’ll never know, but it was a missed penalty, that particular play should not have counted.

    Though he “may have” gotten a break on the play clock? Every living person watching the game knew the play clock expired except the officials. How that is acceptable is a mystery.

    Aside from the blown play clock call (noncall), next time watching that replay, check out the holding nocall being done to Cofield.

    There was clearly a delay of game (not called by the ref) on the Dallas touchdown pass to Witten. Cowboys got lucky.

    Don’t tell me that Redskins have to beat both the refs & Cowboys to win the NFC East division.
