Here is a review of the ten spot and how we did at predicting for the Cowboys game.
Game Story: Redskins 23, Cowboys 28
Stat that matters II: Redskins receiver Santana Moss caught nine passes for 121 yards, a great sign considering how much he's been hurt and how little impact he had made this season. If Moss continues to play this way, the Redskins will still challenge for a playoff spot. By the way, Moss should have had two touchdowns; he was open on a post late in the game but Campbell missed him.
Turning point: The Redskins were driving inside the 20-yard line with under two minutes remaining when Jason Campbell was forced to his right. He threw back to Antwaan Randle El, but corner Terence Newman was right there and intercepted the pass. Though Washington got the ball back again, this was the Redskins last good opportunity.
Play to remember: The four-yard scoring toss to Moss in the back of the end zone. Moss simply got inside the corner and his catch made it 28-23, fueling hopes of a big upset. It capped a 76-play drive that showed a lot of grit by the Redskins.
Play to forget: Take your pick of Terrell Owens touchdown grabs. We'll take the last of his four touchdowns because it was a back-breaker, a 52-yard grab down the right sidelines to make the score 28-16. On the play, corner Shawn Springs did not get deep enough in zone coverage and safety Pierson Prioleau did not get over fast enough to stop the pass. Few plays showed the loss of Sean Taylor more than this one.
What the loss means: Washington falls to 5-5, but the bigger game likely is Sunday at Tampa Bay. The good news is that the Redskins are still OK in terms of the wild card chase. They're a game behind Detroit, but they also hold the tiebreaker. It helps that New Orleans and Chicago both lost, leaving them a game behind Washington.
