Dallas Morning Star - Timeless loss: Cowboys fall to Redskins on final play
CowboysPlus.com | News for Dallas, Texas | Top Story
LANDOVER, Md. – They walked off the field through the tunnel stunned. They sat at their lockers stunned. As they walked to the buses, they were still stunned.
"Just when you think you've seen everything there is to see," Cowboys linebacker Akin Ayodele said, shaking his head and then asking for a moment inside the quiet locker room.
The Cowboys' trip to the midway point of the season ended bizarrely Sunday at FedExField when Nick Novak slipped a career-long 47-yarder just inside the right upright with no time left – giving Washington an improbable and surreal 22-19 victory.
"We keep talking about how it's a long season, but we've played eight games and it's almost over," linebacker Bradie James said of the Cowboys' 4-4 record. "At some point we have to get over the hump as a team, and time is money. So we have to make it happen."
If the Cowboys fall short of the playoffs, they will look back at Sunday's loss as a killer.
