The game ended with Bill Parcells flinging his headset to the ground and Joe Gibbs looking like he needed a blood transfusion. The Cowboys had it won ... and then lost it. The Redskins had it lost ... and then won it. Just another week in the NFC East, folks.
How do you even explain what happened yesterday in the last few seconds at FedEx Field, the series of events that turned a killer 22-19 defeat for the Snydermen into a life-giving 22-19 victory? It was improbable enough that Mike Vanderjagt, who once went an entire season without missing a kick, had a chip-shot field goal try blocked -- and almost unbelievable that Sean Taylor scooped up the loose ball and weaved 30 yards, Barry Sanders-like, to the Dallas 44.
"But after all that," Brandon Lloyd mused, "how does a penalty come into play that gives us a chance at the winning field goal?"
