Final: Cowboys 31, Redskins 26

The Redskins can’t come up with a defensive stand on the Cowboys’ final series, and Dallas runs out the clock for a 31-25 win. Washington falls to 6-4-1, ending a two-game winning streak, but amasses 505 total yards of offense, including 443 passing yards and three touchdowns from QB Kirk Cousins. The Cowboys win their franchise-record 10th in a row to remain in control of the NFC East.

Cowboys get key first down

WR Cole Beasley collects an eight-yard catch on third and seven to move the Cowboys to the Washington 44 with 1;47 to play. Washington has one timeout remaining.

Cowboys recover onside kick

Dustin Hopkins’s onside kick attempt goes out of bounds for a 15-yard penalty. Dallas has first and 10 at the Washington 47 with 1:53 left in regulation.

Skins trim deficit to 31-26 with 1:53 to play

TE Jordan Reed catches eight-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins to draw Washington to 31-26 with 1:53 left in regulation. It’s the third touchdown for Cousins, who has thrown for 449 yards. The Redskins have two timeouts remaining.

Even in this shortest of turnarounds, there’s been no shortage of buildup for this game: The rivalry is back. This is even better than the 2012 Thanksgiving clash in Dallas. Kirk is the man. Dak is the man too, not Tony. These Cowboys resemble the ones from the ’90s. Don’t tell the Redskins what they can’t do.

Both teams are coming in hot — Dallas winners of nine straight, with only a one-point season-opening loss, and Washington 6-1-1 since an 0-2 start. The teams met in Week 2 and the Redskins had Dallas on the ropes before an end-zone interception thrown by Cousins; Prescott then led his first game-winning drive.

The teams are different now, better maybe. All that hype is a lot to take in. Gene Wang, Master Tesfatsion and Keith McMillan will help sort it out, providing updates and analysis frequently from kickoff to final whistle, and sporadically before and after the game. Discuss the game here.
