The Washington Redskins defeated the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17, winning by a score of 28-18 and securing the NFC East divisional crown in the process.

The Redskins won this game without a stellar effort from rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, who struggled in this game. Griffin only passed for 100 yards on the night, though he did manage to play mistake-free football and rushed for a touchdown. 

The hero of the night on offense for the 'Skins was Alfred Morris, who rushed for 200 yards and three touchdowns on 33 carries. 

The Redskins made some huge plays on the defensive side of the ball, too, as Richard Crawford, Rob Jackson and Josh Wilson all came up with interceptions, while veteran linebacker London Fletcher sacked Tony Romo twice. 

Romo didn't do anything to shake the stigma that he chokes in big games, throwing the aforementioned three interceptions to go along with two touchdown passes. 

In the end, the Redskins just made more plays when it mattered, and they'll be hosting the Seattle Seahawks next weekend in the Wild Card Round as a result. 

The Cowboys, on the other hand, will have to go back to the drawing board and take a hard look at how they ended up at 8-8 and on the outside looking in.
