Final Score: Cowboys 18 Redskins 16
The Redskins entered as one of the league's most surprising teams, boasting a 2-0 record with wins over the New York Giants and the Arizona Cardinals. Rex Grossman has been better than expected and Tim Hightower may be the lead back that Washington hasn't possessed since Clinton Portis.
In Dallas, Tony Romo’s health has been the hottest topic. The Cowboys starting quarterback was cleared to play tonight even though he cracked a rib and punctured a lung against the San Francisco 49ers the week prior. Romo wore a Kevlar vest for the game.
While Romo was given the okay to compete in the contest, it raised the question of whether he'll be a target for Redskins defensive players and whether he can remain effective for four quarters. Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall already said that he would take a shot at Romo’s ribs if given the opportunity during this week's game.
