The Cowboys came right back with a Felix Jones 29 yard run. Then Romo hit Witten with a 23 yard reception down the middle of the field. That lead to another Bailey 41 yard field goal making the score: Washington 16, Dallas 12.
Early in the fourth quarter, a holding call on Martellus Bennett negated a long Felix Jones run and another bad snap from Costa hindered the Cowboy’s offensive rhythm. Luckily, the Cowboys defense was up to the task causing Washington’s offense to go three and out.
Midway through the fourth quarter, Felix Jones exploded for a 40 yard run. Then Romo hit Laurent Robinson for a big 25 yard pass play. Deep in Washington’s red zone, Romo was sacked and fumbled the ball. Luckily, the Cowboys recovered the ball but a defensive holding call negated it. After a Martellus Bennett drop in the end zone and another bad route by Ogletree, the Cowboys had to settle for a 23 yard field goal by Bailey. But Washington still had the lead, 16-15.
Late in the fourth quarter, the Dallas defense was able to force Washington to punt. After a 20 yard catch by Ogletree, Costa again had a bad snap resulting in a eleven yard loss. But on the very next play Romo was able to avoid a massive rush by scrambling and hit Dez Bryant for a 30 yard reception. Along with the catch, Washington CB DeAngelo Hall was hit with a face mask penalty that placed Dallas in field goal range just before the two minute warning. Dan Bailey hits his sixth field goal of the night from 40 yards out to give Dallas the lead, 18-16, with 1:47 left in the game.
Needing about 45 yards to get into field goal range, Washington’s offense began their final series with a false start thanks to Dallas’ home crowd. But the Redskins started to move the ball down the field anyway until LB Anthony Spencer sacked Grossman and striped the ball from him. LB Sean Lee recovered the loose ball and Dallas wins the game, 18-16.
