PLAY OF THE GAME

Score: Redskins 6, Pittsburgh 3

Quarter: Second, 2:21 remaining

Situation: Redskins’ ball, fourth-and-1 from the Washington 36

The play: Andre Frazier blocked Ryan Plackemeier’s kick, and Pittsburgh’s William Gay grabbed the ball, returning it to the 13. Five plays later, the Steelers scored.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Byron Leftwich

The former H.D. Woodson player shook off a season and a half of mothballs to guide the Steelers on two scoring drives to put the game away.

UP NEXT

Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins

When: Sunday, Nov. 16, 8:15 p.m.

Where: FedEx Field

TV/radio: Chs. 4, 11, ESPN 980

Outlook:The Redskins will have a week to rest and recover before starting to prepare for another night game, this one against the reeling Cowboys (5-4). Dallas expects to have quarterback Tony Romo back from his hand injury by then, which should have a huge impact on an otherwise lackluster offense. And the defense expects to have Pro Bowl corner Terence Newman back as well. Not that it mattered in late September; the Cowboys were home and at full strength when the Redskins beat them 26-24.
