Fourth quarter, 6:29
Washington fast got behind into a diversion with a 67-yard touchdown swell to DeSean Jackson, yet Dallas answered with another touchdown on a expostulate that featured penalties on both teams and another one waved off. Ultimately, Dak Prescott finished a pass to Dez Bryant with Kendall Fuller in coverage, environment adult an Ezekiel Elliott TD. It’s 31-19.

Fourth quarter, 10:49
Dallas answers with a seven-play, 75-yard touchdown expostulate that creates it 24-12, and creates Washington unequivocally bewail all a points it has left out there. The Redskins are outgaining Dallas, 350-294, yet a Cowboys have 3 times put together six- or seven-play touchdown drives with small resistance.

Fourth quarter, 14:54
Jordan Reed left during a initial half with a shoulder injury, yet he came behind in, hold a subsequent pass and afterwards combined a touchdown locate on a initial play of a fourth entertain to make a measure 17-12. Kirk Cousins was intercepted by Sean Lee on a two-point acclimatisation pass, that prevented Washington from shutting a opening to usually a margin goal.

Here’s another demeanour during a catch:

Halftime stats
The sum yardage inconsistency illustrates what kind of half this has been for Washington. It’s had 4 possessions, 0 punts, 4 margin idea attempts and 6 points. The Redskins are outgaining a Cowboys, 240-170, roughly all of those yards by a air. (Dallas is outrushing Washington, 88-24.) The Cowboys did measure on a brief 45-yard drive, yet are still being outgained. But their invulnerability is tightening adult in a red zone, and Washington is strike or skip on a kicks.

Neither group has a turnover. Dallas, with a one 3 and out, has a game’s usually punt so far.

Kirk Cousins is 18 of 26 for 216 yards and no interceptions in a initial half. Dak Prescott is 9-of-14 passing, for 87 yards and a touchdown.

Second quarter, 0:07 left
Vernon Davis squeezed past Orlando Scandrick along a sideline to get a initial down on third and 10, and Washington scored usually before halftime to slight Dallas’s lead. After Davis gained 12 yards, Maurice Harris hold on notwithstanding a large strike by J.J. Wilcox for a locate over a middle, and DeSean Jackson got a Redskins inside a 10-yard line again inside a final minute. After a timeout with 11 seconds left in a half, Kirk Cousins threw deficient to Pierre Garcon and Washington staid for a 20-yard Dustin Hopkins margin idea and a 17-6 halftime score.

Second quarter, 1:45
After giving dallas a brief margin following a prolonged margin idea miss, Dak Prescott found Terrance Williams in a front dilemma of a finish section from 10 yards out late in a half. The teams are scarcely even in sum yards, 172-167, yet Dallas leads 17-3. A Fox striking forked out that Washington hasn’t trailed by 14 points given Week 1.

Here’s Williams’s catch:

Second quarter, 3:51
Kirk Cousins strike a prolonged pass to Pierre Garcon to set adult another Dustin Hopkins margin idea attempt, yet he missed it, from 55 yards. ATT Stadium is indoors, so continue isn’t a factor, nonetheless object does gleam by a roof.

Second quarter, 7:57
Dallas extends a lead on a 12-play expostulate on that Dak Prescott missed a wide-open far-reaching receiver tarnishing toward a finish zone, and Redskins reserve Duke Ihenacho forsaken an interception on third down. Dan Bailey kicked a 46-yard margin idea a subsequent play; So that’s 6 points Washington left out there, including a Hopkins missed margin goal.

Washington gathering down a margin simply on a initial dual possessions, yet an early-season bugaboo reared a head: not finishing drives. That substantially happens from time to time for any offense, yet a struggles are magnified when a group is trailing in a game, and has had this emanate before.

Washington gained 55 yards on a initial drive, yet a Ty Nsekhe holding chastisement helped lead to a 43-yard margin idea attempt, that Hopkins missed. On their second drive, they gathering 75 yards to a 5-yard line, yet usually got a 24-yard Hopkins margin goal.

After a Dallas 3 and out, Washington got a round behind with 3:14 left in a opening entertain and fast gathering into a red zone, on a strength of a 38-yard execution to Jamison Crowder and a 22-yarder to Vernon Davis. But from a five, Washington wasn’t means to punch it in, and staid or another margin idea attempt. Hopkins finished it from 24 yards out. On a third down play from a 5-yard line, Redskins parsimonious finish Jordan Reed went down tough as well.

Although Washington is trailing, there’s this:

First quarter, 11:09
Dallas went 75 yards in 7 plays, mostly on a ground, in a initial 4 mins of a game. Looks like it’s going to be a prolonged day, yet let’s see how Washington bounces back. Sometimes defenses adjust after a initial expostulate and play good a rest of a way. Or maybe we’ll get both offenses putting on a Thanksgiving shootout.

We’re underway
Dallas has a round first. Live stats are above, and so is a couple to a live blog

One-time starting regulating behind Matt Jones is again a many distinguished name on Washington’s list of dead players. Long limp Nick Sundberg is harmed and will be transposed by Rick Lovato for a second uninterrupted game, and far-reaching receiver Rashad Ross is also on a list.

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

Both teams are entrance in prohibited — Dallas winners of 9 straight, with usually a one-point season-opening loss, and Washington 6-1-1 given an 0-2 start. The teams met in Week 2 and a Redskins had Dallas on a ropes before an end-zone interception thrown by Cousins; Prescott afterwards led his initial game-winning drive.

The teams are opposite now, improved maybe. All that hype is a lot to take in. Makes we consternation when you’ll even have time to offer Thanksgiving dinner. (We asked folks when they were eating, here.)
