    WAS 20, DAL 17: Cowboys Make 1 Too Many Mistakes

    Late in the fourth quarter the Cowboys faced a critical third down, trailing by just 3 points. As they did all night long, the Washington Redskins brought pressure, but stood in the pocket this time and delivered a strike to for a huge first down.

    Cowboys fans rejoiced thinking the team might be on their way to a game winning drive. Then, we all noticed the yellow flag on the ground.

    Holding, number 52.

    The very next play Dak Prescott took what was one of the worst sack fumbles you'll ever see in his own end zone, and the Redskins extended their lead to 10 points. As Prescott tends to do, the Cowboys battled back late and got themselves in a position to send the game to overtime if could nail a 47 yard field goal.

    Snap infraction.

    Snap infraction. Rather than Maher attempting a more make-able 47 yard field goal, he was backed up to 52 yards, where he would miss the game-tying field goal. All of this resulted in an absolutely heartbreaking loss for the now 3-4 , 20-17.

    For a Cowboys team that had a chance to take over first place in the East with a win, today's performance is extremely disheartening.

    Other Notes

    • hasn't been getting the we hoped to see, but he continued to be an absolute menace against the run today. He ended the game with 7 tackles, 3 of them for loss.
    • Dak Prescott's inconsistencies as a quarterback, the inability of any non-Cole Beasley wide out to beat man coverage, and the regression of the continued to handcuff the offense today. Their play simply wasn't good enough for most of the game.
    • and put together another impressive game, and this group (mostly the cornerbacks) seems to improve week to week.
    • looked healthy today, and made a key third down stop in the fourth quarter, knocking out of bounds and giving the offense a final chance to win or tie.
    • and this run game failed the Cowboys today. Elliott had just 34 yards rushing on 15 attempts and the offensive line was dominated all night.
    • The Cowboys have their bye this week before hosting the 3-4 on .
