Well, that will about do it in the battle for first place in the NFC East.
The Cowboys had somehow, some way found a way to hang around until late in the fourth quarter. They held Washington to field goals on goal-line stands after the home team reached the Dallas 3 and Dallas 7 in the second half.
Washington held a precarious 13-10 lead when Dak Prescott fumbled at the Washington 1-yard line on a strip-sack by Ryan Kerrigan. Preston Smith picked it up and ran it in for the score that likely has iced the game with 4:55 remaining considering Dallas has gained only 209 yards.
Washington leads 20-10.
The Cowboys would not have even been in that situation if not for a holding call on rookie left guard Connor Williams, who has struggled all season. Williams had an obvious hold on Jonathan Allen, negating a 16-yard pass from Prescott to Cole Beasley to the Dallas 36.
