Dallas Cowboys Week 3 Win Over The Redskins [PHOTOS]

Washington Redskins v Dallas Cowboys
Tom Pettington

The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins squared off, yet again, for another bitter rivalry meeting that saw some hard hitting, smack talking football that was eventually won by a kicker. Here’s a recap of the Cowboys 18-16 win over the Redskins on Monday Night Football. The stage was set.  One of the biggest rivalries in the NFL going toe to toe under the Monday night lights on national TV with over 90,000 people in the stands.  There was Tony Romo, fresh off a comeback win over the 49ers with a cracked rib and having to hear the smack talk from DeAngelo Hall and the rest of the ‘skins, plus having to hear an earful from Cowboy nation.

When the Cowboys and Redskins meet, it doesn’t matter what the records are for either team, it usually turns out to be a nail biter with some of the hardest hitting you’ll see all season.  This game was no exception as the game went back in forth with the spotlight on both defenses.  Neither offense could move the ball consistently as most of the points were scored from the legs of their kickers.  In fact, rookie kicker, Dan Bailey made history as the only Cowboy rookie kicker to hit 6 field goals in one game and became only the 3rd rookie kicker in NFL history to do that as well.

Tony Romo, playing hurt, completed 22 of 36 for 255 yards with one pick and no touchdowns.  More importantly, he showed the toughness that the Cowboys have lacked for a while.  Nevermind that he didn’t have real good stats.  He literally was a coach as receivers were running wrong routes and couldn’t line up right, plus, center, Phil Costa couldn’t snap the ball right. Romo wasn’t the only one hurt as Felix Jones, Jason Witten, Mike Jenkins, Dez Bryant and a crap load of other players were hurt, yet all of them pushed through and showed their toughness with a team effort that won it for the Cowboys.

I think it’s safe to say that these Cowboys, at least so far, are not the “golly gee” Wade Phillips coached squad of past years, but a tough football team that is not going to give up.  They’ve been able to push through injuries, just as most good teams do, and put all of the negative talk to rest – at least this week.

How do you feel the Cowboys did? What do you think about Tony Romo now?

Here is a recap of the game in pictures.  I did throw in some Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader pics as well so even if you hate the Cowboys, at least there is some eye candy for ya!  Enjoy.
