Dallas wins a tight one 28-23

Dallas has the ball and on 1st and 10 Crayton gains 8 on a catch and run. On 2nd and 2, Romo is pressured and he throws the ball away. On 3rd and 2 Sam Hurd catches it for a first down on a slant route. On 1st down, Romo throws to Witten for 24 yards. On 1st and 10, a fake reverse to Jones gets two yards. Flo Adams gets his usual false start penalty and it's now 2nd and 13. Romo grabs another high snap and tosses another bomb to T.O. FOR A TOUCHDOWN. T.O. has three touchdowns. Dallas leads 21-13.

The Deadskins were able to drive the ball into the redzone but left with just a field goal. Dallas still leads 21-16.

Dallas has the ball again and appear to be trying to run the clock down with 8:18 left. MB3 has had three carries in a row. Finally a pass to Owens, who breaks a tackle, stays in bounds and SCORES on a 52 yard play. Terrell Owens has 4 touchdowns on the night, and ties Bob Hayes for the team record. Dallas now leads 28-16.

Washington comes right back and scored a touchdown with 3:45 left. Dallas now leads 28-23.

The Cowboys pass and it's incomplete on 1st and 10 which is just mindblowing. Why? Then, a run by MB3 is stuffed. Romo is then sacked. Punt.

The Deadskins get the ball back after a nice punt return into Dallas territory. Campbell on 1st and 10 throws the ball away. On 2nd and 10 the Deadskins gain another first down and they are on the Dallas 20 yard line. On 1st and 10 Campbell throws just out of reach for Moss in the endzone. Lucky. On 2nd and 10 Campbell throws behind Portis on a short sweep pass, and it's dropped. On 3rd and 10 Campbell scrambled a bit and throws right to Newman with 1:39 left in the game!!!

Dallas still can't run the clock out and has to punt it back to the Deadskins, with 34 seconds left. The Skins start at their own 30 with no time outs. On 1st and 10, an illegal contact penalty gives the Skins five yard. On 1st and 5 another flag on the field as Ware is offsides. Moss then catches a pass for 15 yards and gets out of bounds on the 50 yard line with 16 seconds left.

On 1st and 10 Campbell throws it away with 11 seconds left. Newman breaks up a pass and with 5 seconds left Campbell has no choice but to throw a bomb into the end zone. The Hail Mary is broken up and the game is over. Dallas is 9-1!

Too close of a game, but a win is a win. It's always interesting when Dallas plays Washington, ain't it?
