UP-DOWNS

Came in perfect on field goals; came out considerably less than that

REDSKINS’ DEFENSE [up]

An outstanding performance — until the end

ROCK CARTWRIGHT [up]

Despite the loss, veteran backup back turns in a career effort

REDSKINS’ OFFENSIVE LINE [down]

Chad Rinehart is the latest to go down. How long can this go on?

PLAYER OF THE GAME

London Fletcher

Even though he figured in the Cowboys’ winning play, the veteran middle linebacker forced a fumble, picked off a pass and anchored a terrific defensive effort.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Score: Washington 6, Dallas 0

Quarter: Fourth, 2:50 remaining

Situation: Cowboys’ ball, second-and-goal on the Washington 10

The play: Flushed out of the pocket, Tony Romo rolled to his left, stopped and threw across his body to Patrick Crayton in the end zone. The wide receiver improvised to get open and found himself matched up with middle linebacker London Fletcher. Crayton got free for the Cowboys’ only score of the game. But it was enough.

UP NEXT

Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles

When: Sunday, 1 p.m.

Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia

TV/radio: Ch. 5, ESPN 980

Outlook: The Redskins suffered another heartbreaker Sunday, a 7-6 loss to Dallas after outplaying the Cowboys and leading for most of the game. The unpredictable Eagles played Chicago on Sunday night, hoping to rebound from successive losses to Dallas and San Diego. Come this Sunday, both teams likely will be missing their top running backs, and Washington will be down to No. 3, Rock Cartwright, who got most of the playing time against Dallas.
