The Redskins ended five possessions in Dallas territory and scored only the opening-drive touchdown. In the past three games, the Redskins have driven into the opponent’s territory 20 times but scored only one touchdown, not counting Santana Moss’ 50-yard touchdown catch at Detroit. That confirms Zorn’s theory that the offense is doing good things, but not consistently and certainly not in the most crucial situations.

For the first time Monday, the offensive players expressed guilt at letting down a defense that held Dallas to 315 yards - its lowest output in Tony Romo’s seven starts. They know improvement better come quickly, or else that 4-1 start will be washed away.

“I don’t care how good your defense plays; you’re not giving yourself a chance and you’re not giving your defense a chance if you’re not scoring points,” said Moss, who has six catches for 43 yards in the past two games. “We’re not getting our behinds whipped up and down the field. We’re just coming up short. We just have to find a way.”
