Coincidence ?

I think not !

Unleash the Gumbs !!
The Redskins didn't force Romo to take any chances and throw the ball down the field. Washington self-destructed and Dallas just stood around and watched.

This was a pretty poor showing for a team coming off a bye week and facing a team that lost several starters early in the first half.
Redskins defense wasn't on the field much because of the special team gaffs that allowed the Cowboys to score 14 pts. in the bat of an eye. The offense moved the ball maintained time of possesion but failed in the redzone more than once to score a TD. Add in Griffs fumble Dallas didn't have many yards gained on 3 possessions yet still manged to put up 21 pts. They shut down Dez Bryant so it wasn't all bad but the stats are misleading imho.
