Terence Newman's spearing penalty on Santana Moss setup the Redskins for their first TD.
- McBriar's Bounce - Earlier in the fourth quarter, Mat McBriar shanked a 28-yard punt that led to Washington's game-tying touchdown. But later in the fourth, with the game tied, he not only boomed a 54-yard punt, but got a friendly bounce at the 1, with the Cowboys able to down it at the 4. The Redskins did get a first down, but eventually had to punt after a crucial third-down sack by Victor Butler. The good field position set up the Cowboys for the game-winning field goal.
