Not a good fit for the West Coast offense? Right …

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Santana Moss

Big receivers like Terrell Owens might be en vogue in the NFL, but the 5-foot-10 Moss plays big enough. Moss overshadowed the more publicized Owens with eight catches for 145 yards in the Redskins’ upset victory.

Play of the Game

Score: Redskins 20, Redskins 17

Quarter: Third

Situation: Cowboys ball, first-and-10, Dallas 37, 18 seconds remaining

The play: After forcing a Redskins punt, the Cowboys, who drove for a quick touchdown at the start of the second half, were in position to take the lead or at least tie the game when quarterback Tony Romo dropped back and spotted Miles Austin near the sideline. But rookie safety Chris Horton, the 249th pick in the draft, cut in front of Austin for his third interception of the season. The play gave the Redskins the ball on the Dallas 44 and set up a field goal that provided key points in the Redskins’ 26-24 victory.

Up Next

Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles

When: Sunday, 1 p.m.

Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia

TV/radio: 1 p.m., Ch. 5, ESPN 980

Outlook: The Redskins are coming off a huge 26-24 road win over the Dallas Cowboys to run their record to 3-1, but another tough NFC East test awaits. Philadelphia was averaging 30 points going into Sunday night’s game against Chicago, although the two main components of its offense, quarterback Donovan McNabb and running back Brian Westbrook, were banged up.
