Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

• On third-and-13 from the Redskins‘ 29-yard line in the second quarter, Washington showed a four-man line but rushed seven in a Cover-0 blitz. That’s the reverse of what the Redskins more frequently do: show a Zero blitz but drop out of it. Dallas completed a pass for 10 yards and settled for a field goal.

• Washington had safeties Reed Doughty, Oshiomogho Atogwe and DeJon Gomes on the field at the same time for two plays on separate series in the second quarter. One resulted in an incomplete pass on third-and-6, and the other was a 9-yard completion. Gomes provides some versatility because he often played in the box as a linebacker at Nebraska.

OLB Rob Jackson made a rare play in pass coverage in the third quarter. He jammed WR Laurent Robinson — or perhaps Robinson ran into Jackson — at four yards. That disrupted the timing of Robinson’s crossing pattern, and QB Tony Romo’s throw was beyond his reach.
