Football News

Tonight saw an incredible finish to the divisional match up between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys.

The Redskins would have gained control of the NFC West if they could get the win while the Cowboys were simply trying to prove that they can do it without Tony Romo.

Late drama

The Cowboys would get the 19-16 victory with a lot of late drama in the final two minutes of the game.

It was certainly a night for kickers though as the teams were tied 9-9 going into the two minute warning in the fourth quarter.

It all started with a punt by the Cowboys as Redskins returner DeSean Jackson tried to do everything the could to take the ball back as far as possible.

Despite getting to the 20 yard line, he would look for extra room and be tackled down at the nine yard line where he would also fumble the football and let the Cowboys pounce on it for great field position.

Darren McFadden would then run the ball into the endzone with 1:14 remaining to give the Cowboys a 16-9 lead.

Armed with two time outs, the Redskins would get the chance to reply and Jackson got himself some redemption with a 28 yard touchdown reception, leaving just :44 left the Cowboys.

That was more than enough though as Matt Cassell would get the Cowboys into field goal range thanks to a great kick-off return.

Dan Bailey would kick the game winning 54 yard field goal to send the Cowboys to 4-8 before they face a very tough road game against the Green Bay Packers in week 14.

Chase for the title

The NFC East is now the tightest division in the NFL and with the Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants all on 5-7, who knows who will win.

The Cowboys are now only one game away from their divisional rivals so hopefully week 14 will give us a bigger clue about who will be crowned division champion come the end of the season.
