Cowboys 31, Redskins 16

Big plays propel Cowboys to first

Related News/Archive

ARLINGTON, Texas — Dwayne Harris and the Dallas defense were so good that Tony Romo didn't have to do it all.

Harris returned a punt 86 yards for a touchdown and set up another score with a 90-yard kickoff return, helping Dallas hand Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III his first loss in his home state.

Romo had just 170 yards passing a week after getting 506 in a wild 51-48 loss to Denver. Harris had 222 total return yards and defensive end Kyle Wilber forced and recovered a fumble on a sack of Griffin that left the Cowboys needing just 3 yards for a clinching score in the fourth quarter.

"Dwayne did a fantastic job," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. "Talk about making difference-making plays in the game."

The Cowboys gave owner Jerry Jones a win on his 71st birthday and tied the Eagles for first in the NFC East at 3-3. Those two meet next Sunday in Philadelphia.
