Cowboys Skinned By Washington After Wild Finish

For decades it seems no matter what the team records, something crazy tends to happen when the Cowboys and Redskins play.

It was one crazy finish to Sunday's game in Washington.

Tony Romo made his second start for the Cowboys.  In the first quarter, running back Julius Jones would be tackled in the endzone. The Redskins would get the safety and it was 2-0, Washington.

In the second quarter the Redskins tacked on a field goal but the Cowboys tacked on a touchdown. Tony Romo would connect with Terry Glenn from 10 yards out for the touchdown.

The Cowboys went for the two-point conversion and missed making it 6-5, Dallas.

Still in the second quarter, Clinton Portis would go 38 yards into the zone and the Redskins would go up 12-9.

Cowboys would tie the game on a Mike Vanderjagt field goal just before the half.

In the third, quarter the Cowboys took the 19-12 lead when Romo connected with Terrell Owens for the touchdown.

Late in the fourth quarter, the Redskins quarterback Mark Brunell,would hit Chris Cooley deep in the endzone and the game was tied at 19.

With six seconds left in the game, Mike Vanderjagt went for the game winning field goal. It was blocked by the Redskins, the ball popped loose and was later recovered by Washington.

The Cowboys were called for a face mask penalty on the play and that allowed  the Redskins to kick s field goal to win with no time left on the clock.

22-19 Washington, the final score.

"I don't feel good," Tony Romo said after the game. "I'm not here to put up any kind of numbers or anything. I'm here to help this team win. That's why I go out there and that's what I was trying to help accomplish today and we didn't do that today so this leaves a very bad taste in my mouth right now."

"It was one of those that could have gone either way,"Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells said, "and a really tough pill to swallow."

The Cowboys will play the last game of their three game road stretch against Arizona next.
