If Campbell doesn't pluck that ball out of the air it hits the ground and nobody is around except for white-shirted defenders. The Redskins probably don't get those three points in a game they won by two points. Of course, we don't know how the dynamic of the game would have played out had Dallas recovered a fumble to keep the game knotted up at that point. But none of the scenarios I can think of would have been very good for the Redskins.
Campbell is receiving a lot of praise for his poise in the pocket today, for checking down and finding his second and third options on pass plays. Zorn loved how he didn't take chances with the ball and thus went his fourth straight game without an interception. Here he's getting kudos for all of that and for making one, little heads up play that averted a potential disaster.
