PLAY OF THE GAME

Score: Washington 10, Dallas 7

Quarter: Third, 3:51 remaining

Situation: Redskins’ ball, third-and-13 from the Dallas 20

The play: With the Redskins in field goal range, defensive lineman Jay Ratliff got to Campbell for his second sack of the game. It put Washington just out of Shaun Suisham’s range, and his 46-yard attempt fell short, hitting the crossbar.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Marion Barber

The hard-running back led the Cowboys in receiving (six catches for 39 yards) in addition to rushing (24 carries, 114 yards and a touchdown). His fourth quarter - which included 14 clock-killing carries - was awe-inspiring.

UP NEXT

Washington Redskins at Seattle Seahawks

When: Sunday, 4:15 p.m.

Where: Qwest Field, Seattle

TV/radio: Ch. 5, ESPN 980

Outlook: Washington’s last two trips to Seattle have ended in memorable playoff losses, last year and at the end of the 2005 season - just one game away from the NFC title game. This year, with the Seahawks (2-8) struggling in the punchless NFC West, another playoff meeting is probably out of the question. But this game will carry more a sentimental weight: Redskins coach Jim Zorn will be returning to the city where he was the Seahawks’ quarterback before joining Mike Holmgren’s staff as quarterbacks coach. He also will face the quarterback he spent years tutoring: Matt Hasselbeck, who returned from injury this weekend.
