Question of the Day
Rocca commits FG gaffe
Punter Sav Rocca took responsibility for the botched 36-yard field goal that cost the Redskins three points in the second quarter.
Nick Sundberg’s snap was a bit high. Rocca raised slightly from his kneeling position to catch it, but he bobbled it. In a 2-point loss, the gaffe could be considered decisive.
“Regardless of where it was, it should have been caught,” Rocca said. “I’ve caught those many times over before.”
• Kevin Barnes helped fellow cornerback Josh Wilson recover a first-quarter fumble by batting the ball away from the sideline. Officials initially ruled that Dallas would retain possession because Barnes was touching the sideline when he dove and hit the ball toward Wilson, but the Redskins successfully challenged the call. Replays showed Barnes’ foot was in the air over the sideline, not touching it.
Barnes, however, was disappointed he didn’t make a bigger play.
“It should have been an easy scoop and score,” he said. “The footing was bad for a lot of guys out there today. I tried to stay [in] bounds as long as possible. I didn’t realize it was that close. I was basically floating.”…
• Receiver Anthony Armstrong suffered a left hamstring injury and sat out most of the second half. Linebacker Brian Orakpo left the game in the fourth quarter with cramps and had to receive intravenous fluids.
