December 18 Redskins 35 Dallas 7

Washington beats the Cowboys 35-7, their largest margin of victory in the series ever.. Washington twice beat Dallas by 27 points, back in 1996, the final game at RFK 37-10 and 1986, a 41-14 Washington win..

The win ties the Skins in the NFC East standings with the Cowboys but gives them the playoff by way of a series sweep.. Washington hadn't swept Dallas since 1995.. The Redskins have won 3 straight and face the NYG on Satruday.. If the Skins win out, they would win the division if the Giants lose their finale as well due to a better division record, Washington would be 5-1.... If the Giants beat Oakland on the final regualr season weekend, the Redskins can only make the playoffs as one of the two wild cards..

Washington outgained Dallas 334-216 and led 28-nothing at half, Washington caused 4 Dallas turnovers and only turned it over once themselves.. Phillip Daniels had four sacks, the team finsihed with a season high 7.. Four sacks in one game ties Dexter Manley and Diron Talbert for most by a Skin in one game..

Clinton Portis had his third straight 100 plus yard game, he hadn't had back to back 100+ yard games since becoming a Skin until the Rams and Cardinals outings.. He had 112 yards on 23 carries...

Chris Cooley scored 3 touchdowns in the first half..

DT Joe Salave'a returned after missing two games with his injured foot.. DT Corenlious Griffin recorded his first interception as a Skin on Dallas's first offensive play from scrimmage...

Mark Brunnell threw for under 200 yards for the fifth straight week, but was 12-20, 163 yards and four touchdowns..

This was the most points the Skins had scored ina half (28) since their 6th game of the year against SF when they scored 35 in the first half.. This was only the 6th time this year Washington scored more then 20 points in a game this year and third time they went over 30..

G Randy Thomas will miss the rest of the season after fracturing his fibula.. he will have sugery on Monday at a Reston area Hospital and will need 3-4 months of rehab before he will be off crutches..
CB Carlos Rogers missed the game, his biceps injury was clarified, it is not just a bruise, but a torn muscle.. He does not have a tendon injury and thus he can potentially play later in the season, but his availability for the NYG game is very much up in the air..
WR James Thrash was deactivated again due to his injured hamstring, but he practcied much of last week and may be a possibility for the NYG game..
LB LaVar Arrington was inactive for a second straight week with a thigh bruise.. He is unkown for the NYG game..
S Matt Bowen was inactive due to a knee injury.. DT Ryan Boschetti was inactive dur to a sprained knee..
All other injuries incurred in the game were described as just bumps and bruises..

The Redskins signed CB Dimitri Patterson from the practice squad and placed TE Robert Johnson on IR effectivly ending his season..
