Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
For the first time since 1999, the Washington Redskins are NFC East champs. All hail as RGIII and Alfred Morris simply ran the Cowboys into the ground.
The Redskins defense also did a great job of blitzing Romo, forcing turnovers and bad throws.
Washington's season continues as they will face the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs next weekend in D.C., while the Cowboys will take it back to Dallas to assess their mediocre season.
Again, a wonderful game put forth by the Redskins. Their defense was fired up and ready to go tonight, no pun intended, and they simply out played the Cowboys.
London Fletcher played Romo's shadow and Alfred Morris did his best Adrian Peterson impression.
The Redskins are the champions of the NFC East. Hail.
For the night, Alred Morris has rushed for 200 yards, three touchdowns, on 33 carries.
He ate the Cowboys defense for dinner tonight.
Next week, its the Seahawks traveling to D.C. to play the Redskins.
Robert Griffin III vs. Russel Wilson. That should get plenty of views, eh?
4th Quarter 2:00
The Redskins have just about put this one in the record books. With an injured Robert Griffin III, they were able to put the Cowboys to bed at home on a cold winter's night.
Dallas just couldn't stop Alfred Morris and Tony Romo couldn't stop himself from turning the ball over.
When the game was on the line, the Cowboys defense got a key stop to give their offense a chance to win the game.
But Romo threw an interception to put the ball back in the hands of the Redskins.
For Washington fans, it really doesn't get much better than this.
Hail to the Redskins.
4th Quarter 2:51
That may be it for the Cowboys.
Romo just tossed his third interception of the game, this time with the game on the line.
There is simply no defense for Romo on that play as he floated the ball right into the hands of Redskins linebacker Rob Jackson.

4th Quarter 3:35
On third down and eight yards to go, the Cowboys had to have a stop for any chance of winning the game. Redskins on their own 36-yard line, and Dallas was able to make the stop.
Now its all up to the Cowboys to either take the lead or tie the game up. Romo, this is your stage sir.
More injury news for the Cowboys.

4th Quarter 8:53
The Cowboys can't handle the blitz or the legs of Alfred Morris. On third down, the Redskins sent the house, led by middle linebacker London Fletcher, and he was able to drag Romo down for an 18-yard sack.
Romo is running for his life, and Morris is running for life after this game.
Alfred Morris is killing the Cowboys defense right now, and watching his ROY stock rise.
Sure, he won't win the award, but this former sixth round pick has 172 yards on the night, and he isn't finished.
If the Cowboys can't stop him, which they haven't been able to so far, the Seahawks will be traveling to D.C. next weekend.
4th Quarter 12:54
The Redskins have another good looking drive going, but this time they are using the arm of RGIII as well as Morris' legs.
The Cowboys just simply have to many injuries at this point. That's taking nothing away from the Redskins offense and how well they are playing.
Cowboys working on another no-sack, no-turnover game. They've had four this year. All losses.— Carlos A. Mendez (@calexmendez) December 31, 2012
Folks, as we start the fourth quarter, take a look at the number of penalties called on both teams.
There have been no flags thrown through three quarters. That is simply amazing as the Cowboys and Redskins are two of the most penalized teams in the entire league.
This game may come down to a blown assignment, stupid penalty, or turnover.
3rd Quarter 1:28
The legs of RGIII aren't all that bad. He scored from 10-yards out, but he was able to sell the play fake by taking the ball out of the gut of Alfred Morris to jog in for the touchdown.
This is where the game can break open for the Redskins. If they can stop the Cowboys on this next drive, they will have an opportunity to go up by 14.
I'm not sure the Cowboys can handle any more injuries before it becomes to much.
As if Cowboys' defense wasn't banged up enough, Anthony Spencer is down.— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) December 31, 2012
3rd Quarter 7:48
Since the Cowboys can't stop it, the Redskins will continue to do it: Run the ball.
Morris has already broken the single season all-time rushing record, and he may be working on the single game mark.
Morris is chewing up the Cowboys defense, so much so that the Redskins have abandoned the pass.
Keep an eye on Morris. Redskins driving...

Neither offense can get into a rhythm tonight. Feels like a game that will be won/lost on a defensive play/offensive screw up.— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) December 31, 2012
3rd Quarter 8:42
Folks, its looking like this could be another down to the wire game.
Though they are not trading scores, they are trading blows. Morris has eaten up the Cowboys defense, but it has not resulted into points.
While Romo has settled down for the most part, he has that lone touchdown in the second quarter.
The Redskins blueprint has been to get the Cowboys to third down, and then blitz them off the field.
For the Cowboys, Washington has made a few mental errors that have ended drives. Dallas' defense has done a nice job of holding RGIII, but his health has played an issue in that as well.
If anything, they have to stop Alfred Morris. He's up to 100 yards already.
Austin seems to be out.
Miles Austin might be done for the night. He wasn't on the field the last couple of plays at least.— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) December 31, 2012
3rd Quarter 11:31
it seems like the Redskins are blitzing every single defensive play. Its working as the Cowboys offensive line has not been able to handle the pressure.
The Redskins are sending guys up the middle, from the side, and through the secondary.
Dallas was forced to punt as the Redskins linebackers simply ran Romo off the field.
Austin is back in to start the third quarter.

It's halftime, folks. What's interesting about this game is that when halftime hit when these two teams met on Thanksgiving Day, the 'Skins were up by 25 points.
I'm sure Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett will take this instead of a 25-point deficit.
Here are a few key stats before we get going in the second half.
Rushing: Alfred Morris, 13 carries, 92 yards
Receiving: Dez Bryant, 3 catches, 54 yards
Turnovers: Romo 2
No penalties for both teams.
2nd Quarter :51
Redskins corner Josh Wilson has picked Romo off once, and now he has him a little rattled.
On the Cowboys last play, Wilson came off of a corner blitz, nailed Romo in the back right after Romo released the ball, and now he is slow to get up.
Dallas ended up taking a timeout to allow Romo to gather himself.
On the bright side, the Cowboys are trying to get into field goal range before halftime.

2nd Quarter 3:20
Alfred Morris may not get rookie of the year because of the guy who plays in front of him on his own team, but this young guy has 92-yards on the ground, and it is just the first half.
I'm talking 13 carries for 92-yards on the ground.
Morris' legs are a huge problem for Dallas, so the Cowboys need to be on the look out for the play action in the second half.
