FedEx Ground Moment: Redskins Force, Recover Three Fumbles


This week's FedEx Ground Moment of the Week takes a closer look at the Redskins forcing the Cowboys into three fumbles on Monday Night Football.

For the fourth time during the 2015 season, the Washington Redskins were able to force three turnovers, this time on Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys. [



One week after they snagged three interceptions off of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, the Redskins defense forced and recovered three fumbles against the Cowboys.

It was the first time the Redskins recovered three fumbles since Oct. 17, 2010 vs. the Indianapolis Colts.

The first forced fumbled happened on the Cowboys' second offensive play of the game, as Dashon Goldson forced and recovered a fumble by Darren McFadden.

Getting the ball to start the second half, it took just three plays to get Dallas' offense off of the field, as Jason Hatcher stripped the ball from McFadden's possession, and Mason Foster would recover.

Then on the Cowboys first drive of the fourth quarter, after getting a first down at their own 43-yard line, Mason Foster freed the ball from Devin Street's posession. It would be recovered by Will Blackmon.
