It wasn't a great Thanksgiving for the Washington Redskins, as they travelled to Dallas to take on the Cowboys but lost 31-26.
The Redskins had a scare that could have damaged their playoff hopes early in the game, as their tight end Jordan Reed went down as he suffered an AC joint separation in his shoulder in the first half while trying to catch a ball in the endzone.
However, the 26-year-old was able to come back by the first series of the second half, which was when Washington started to get into their groove, and the tight end pulled off a magnificent play.

On a third-and-four play from Dallas' 36-yard line with around 50 seconds left in the third quarter, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins connected with Reed for a 33-yard pass. The tight end hauled this pass in with an incredible one-handed catch as you can see in the video below.
It looks even better from this fan's perspective.
In the first play of the fourth quarter, Cousins connected with Reed once more for the 5-yard touchdown, putting Washington back into the game. The tight end would score again later on in the game, but it wasn't enough for his team to come away with a victory.
The main concern for the Redskins now would be hoping Reed is able to play through the pain for the rest of the season and help get the team in the playoffs. He's a key focal point of their offense, so if he was to miss any time, they might struggle to make the postseason.
Vernon Davis was an ok filler when Reed missed two games earlier this season, but Washington would much prefer to have the 26-year-old on the field because of these type of plays which he can make.
