So much went right for the Redskins at Cowboys Stadium. Their defense forced two turnovers, one at the Washington 12, and made Miles Austin, Romo’s No. 1 downfield threat, disappear for almost three quarters. Their offense, which practically seems picked out of a hat at times, outgained Dallas 324-305. And their punter kept pinning the Cowboys deep in their own end - first at the 12, then at the 6 and finally at the 10.

Yet the end result, as it has been all too often, was another loss.

“It’s been one crazy season,” said Campbell.

With more craziness to come, no doubt. The pattern has been too well established. And in their diminished state, the Redskins, try as they might, appear powerless to alter it.
