Drive of the Game: Jamison Crowder Caps Quick Drive With 11-Yard Score


This week's Redskins Drive of the Game, presented by Ford, was Jamison Crowder's 11-yard touchdown grab on a perfectly placed ball by Kirk Cousins in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Trailing by three points after two quarters, the Washington Redskins needed to make a statement to begin the second half. An eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive did just that.

For a second consecutive week, a Redskins touchdown drive was highlighted by the use of the no-huddle as Washington covered a big portion of the field with a pair of no-huddle passes.

Running back Matt Jones began the drive with a four-yard run, and Washington hurried to the line where quarterback Kirk Cousins found Pierre Garçon down the left side for a 16-yard gain.

A minute had still yet to elapse in the third quarter when Cousins found Vernon Davis over the middle, where he showed incredible athleticism by turning the short pass into a 32-yard pickup.

After a completion to DeSean Jackson for no gain, Jones was involved again with a seven-yard run, bringing up the first third down of the drive.

Cousins calmly found Ryan Grant near the right sideline for a five-yard gain and a first down at the Cowboys' 11-yard line.

After Cousins was unable to connect Josh Doctson on a pass to the right on the next play, he did find Jamison Crowder – the fifth different receiver to catch a pass on the drive – in the back of the end zone where Crowder did a fantastic job of keeping his feet down for the touchdown. Crowder sacrificed his body in the process as he rammed into a short wall beyond the end zone, but he was able to get up and celebrate with no problem.

Dustin Hopkins added the extra point to make it 17-13, Redskins. Although the Cowboys came back to win 27-23, Washington showed the diversity of its offensive attack with six different receivers being targeted and five different players making receptions on the drive.
