Dallas Cowboys Kick Their Way to Win Over Washington Redskins

Tony Romo’s ribs held up just fine. So did Dan Bailey’s leg.

Romo persevered through pain to lead enough deep drives to set up Bailey for six field goals, including a 40-yarder with 1:57 left to give the Cowboys an 18-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.

“When the whole season ends up getting written and the book’s done on the year, they don’t ask you what happened in Week 2 or 3 or 4 or 6, why you lost or won. It’s a ‘W’ or an ‘L,’” Romo told DallasCowboys.com. “Some are ugly. Some you win going away. But at the end of the year, you need the wins. Tonight was a great example of us keep grinding, keep going forward. There were a lot of mistakes that don’t sit well with me. We’ll correct that tomorrow. That’s part of the game, especially when you have some young guys. But these guys are tough.”

Dallas’ Anthony Spencer chopped the ball from Washington’s Rex Grossman with 28 seconds left, and linebacker Sean Lee recovered it, setting off a celebration inside Cowboys Stadium.

Dallas coach Jason Garrett dropped to a knee and pumped his fist wildly at being 2-1 — guaranteeing no repeat of last year’s miserable 1-7 start. The Cowboys are even tied for first place in the NFC East, along with Washington (2-1), which was seeking its first 3-0 start since 2005.
