Redskins vs. Cowboys: Dallas' Biggest Winners and Losers from Week 17

The Washington Redskins entered Sunday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys with a chance to make the playoffs and become champions of the NFC East for the first time since 1999.

They accomplished both on a cold night in D.C. by beating the Cowboys 28-18.

Redskins running back Alfred Morris ran for 200 yards on the night, scored three touchdowns and averaged a sick 6.1 yards per clip. He was great for the 'Skins Sunday night and picked up any slack left by an injured Robert Griffin.

In regards to RGIII's performance, he only passed for 100 yards, but there was no need to put the ball in the air when the running game was so good.

In addition to Morris' fantastic night, Bobby Three Sticks rushed for 63 yards.

The Cowboys couldn't handle the zone read from the Redskins in the second half as Morris just wore them down.

For the Cowboys, most of the blame for the loss to the hated Redskins will fall squarely on quarterback Tony Romo. Not only did Romo turn the ball over three times, but his last interception came when the Cowboys were in position to at least tie the game in the fourth quarter.

During the month of December, and in the fourth quarter, Romo was dang near perfect for Dallas. He was playing well and doing all in his power to will the Cowboys to the playoffs.

Then Sunday night happened and we witnessed the regression.

Romo was back to his old form of folding in big games and turning the ball over.

Dallas now heads back to the state of Texas for another summer of soul searching. While they try to figure out how to change their team for the better, the Redskins will move to preparing for the Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs next weekend.

So, in this season-ending edition of winners and losers, here are 11 individuals who either came up big for Dallas on Sunday, or had a hand in sending them home.
