The Redskins held the Cowboys to just 21 rushing yards, and 162 total yards, in the first half.

Dallas had what seemed like a big-time injury scare late in the first quarter, when Dak Prescott, taking off down the sideline, lunged headfirst for the first-down marker where he was abruptly met by Greg Stroman. Prescott went down hard and looked woozy getting up. CBS color analyst Tony Romo immediately identified it as a concussion.

But the worries proved premature, as Prescott would return to the game on the Cowboys' next drive.

D.J. Swearinger has been flying all over the field.

Jonathan Allen landed this mean sack on Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott in the second quarter.


The Redskins needed a big game defensively against Dallas. So far, so good.
