Third Quarter: Dallas leads 14-13

On the Redskins first series, Ware got his ninth sack of the year, causing a fumble that Dallas recovered. But the Cowboys were unable to take advantage of the turnover, and gave the ball right back to the Skins.

On 3rd and 15, unbelievable, the Skins get a first down on a 20 yard toss to Moss. Not good. On 2nd and 6 Betts runs for another first down. But the Cowboys were able to stop the Deadskins after several errant passes from Campbell.

Starting at their own 10 yard line Romo's pass is batted down. On 2nd and 10, Witten catches a pass for six yards. On 3rd and 4 Romo rolls to the right and finds Crayton for a first down. On 2nd and 6 Romo tries to force a pass to Witten, but it's picked off. Romo has thrown two interceptions. The Deadskins McIntosh returns it to the Dallas one yard line. But the play was reviewed and it was determined McIntosh never had control of the ball. LUCKY!!! Correction: Romo only has 1 INT still.

On 3rd and 6 after that lucky recall, Romo throws a bomb to an open Crayton, but it's underthrown. However, the DB ran into Crayton before the ball got there and it's a 51 yard pass interference call. At the Skins 22 yard line, MB3 gets a screen pass and is tackled behind the line of scrimmage. Now 3rd and 19 TERRELL OWENS IS WIDE OPEN FOR A TOUCHDOWN!!!! It was a beautiful pass from Romo. Owens didn't even run a route, unless you call straight to the end zone a "route." Someone screwed up the coverage in the secondary. Dallas leads 14-10.

The Deadskins come right back and Campbell throws a bomb to Moss, who makes an unbelievable one hand catch. On 3rd and 10 Campbell makes another damn first down with a pass to McCardell. The refs also got Ware for roughing the passer. The Deadskins just won't go away. The Deadskins are 1st and 10 at the Dallas 14 and Portis runs for no gain. On 2nd and 10 Ware has Campbell wrapped up. Refs call a intentional grounding and it's a loss of down. On 3rd and 19 the pass is incomplete in the middle. With 2 seconds left in the third quarter, the Deadskins kick a field goal and it's 14-13 Dallas.
