Week 17: Redskins-Cowboys Video Highlights


Here's a recap of some of the best Redskins highlights from their Week 17 matchup against the Cowboys in Dallas.

The Redskins got things going early, as quarterback Kirk Cousins would find rookie Jamison Crowder over the top for a 44-yard reception:

To end their first scoring drive, Cousins connected with second-year receiver Ryan Grant for a five-yard touchdown, Grant's second-career score:

On the ensuing Cowboys possession, linebacker Will Compton picked off a Kellen Moore pass, the first interception of Compton's career:

The Redskins would make the Cowboys pay, as Cousins, on third down, threw over the top to Pierre Garçon for a 39-yard touchdown:

More Cowboys miscues: this time, Moore fumbles, which was recovered by defensive end Chris Baker, Baker appeared to fumble on the play, too, which was picked up by DeAngelo Hall, but Baker was ruled down by contact:

Make-Em-Pay, Round 2: Cousins would find Crowder on a three-yard touchdown to end their next drive:

The Cousins-to-Crowder connection would pay off again, this time with some historical context. Their 28-yard pass-and-catch meant Cousins moved past Jay Schroeder's 4,109 passing yards in 1986 for the most in a single season in Redskins history. The fourth-year Michigan State product would exit in the second quarter having thrown for 4,166 passing yards this year:

Colt McCoy got in on the action, tossing a 71-yard touchdown pass to Rashad Ross. It was the longest pass of McCoy's career, and the first-career receiving touchdown for Ross:

On the ensuing drive, Moore looked poised to throw a touchdown pass. Will Blackmon had other ideas. He stepped in front of the pass and picked it off in the end zone:

Blackmon made another splash play on the Cowboys' next drive. Darren McFadden had what looked like a sure rushing touchdown, but Blackmon smacked the ball out of his hand just short of the goal line. The ball rolled out of bounds in the end zone for a touchback, possession back to Washington:
