On a Sunday night when the quarterbacks didn't exactly light up the box score, rookie Alfred Morris rushed for 200 yards and three touchdowns in a 28-18 Redskins victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The win gives Washington the NFC East title and again sends Tony Romo and Dallas home early with a bitter season-ending defeat.
The Cowboys, who continued to lose starter after starter to injury during the game, got the ball back in Romo's hands with less than four minutes to go and down just three points. Romo thought Redskins linebacker Rob Jackson was coming on a blitz and floated an interception right into his waiting hands. It was Romo's third interception on a nightmarish night that will kick off a very long offseason in Dallas.
Washington, meanwhile, can prepare for the playoffs. The Redskins' offense didn't look quite as dynamic as usual Sunday because Griffin clearly was not 100 percent. The rookie quarterback threw for 100 yards on 18 passes and amazingly rushed for 63 yards and one touchdown despite missing his usual burst.
