Questionable snap infraction call costs Cowboys against Redskins

Elliott raises a valid point, as consistency is what the Cowboys must accomplish in the tight NFC East, where the Redskins lead the division by a half game. "That penalty had zero impact on the result of that kick, I can promise you that", he said.

Quarterback Dak Prescott's pair of lost fumbles did not help, including one that turned into a touchdown and a 20-10 lead for the Redskins late in the fourth quarter.

"I've done a lot of research through the years, just learning about our history as an African American", Smith said. "Yeah, that was one of the easiest touchdowns I ever had".

The defense harassed Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott all day long, sacking him four times, including on the play of the game.

Earlier, Prescott had tied the game up at 7-7 going into half-time after a 49-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Michael Gallup. They also dropped the Cowboys to 0-4 on the road, 3-4 overall, as they head into their bye week.

With the Redskins up 20-17, Cowboys kicker Brett Maher lined up for a 47-yard field goal. He ran for 97 yards last week and the Redskins hope to have his running mate Chris Thompson back this week, who has been great for Alex Smith as a receiver too.

Happened again Sunday, when Elliott was held to 34 yards on 15 carries, the second-lowest total of his National Football League career, and Dallas was beaten by the Washington Redskins 20-17.

"He's held the fort down very nicely", Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said.

"We got out of that little brother taste, now we're starting to whoop some tail". With the No. 2 defense (total yards; fourth against the run and pass), an argument could be made that they should be able to defend whatever the Cowboys come up with. "So once we got down to that point, the biggest thing that we wanted to do was maximize the field goal opportunity and run the ball, make some yards, use the timeout and then kick the game-tying field goal".

But in the final seconds, Dallas seemed content to try to get to OT rather than pushing for a go-ahead TD.

Generally, you won't see a penalty called when the long snapper subtly moves the ball like that on a field goal.

He acknowledged that his team's offense is not doing almost as much as its defense when it comes to giving the Cowboys a chance to win, particularly in away games. On the other side, the Redskins have been a seesaw so far through five, loss, win, loss, win.

"Definitely with their O-line, their running game is something that definitely jumps off on film", linebacker Mason Foster said.

They were able to ride a fast start to a win last week against the Carolina Panthers.
