The Cowboys defeated the Redskins, 18-16, with Dallas’ only points coming off six field goals. Tony Romo threw for 255 yards and Felix Jones ran 14 times for 115 yards, but neither could get into the end zone the entire game.
The highlight of the game (unless you’re a Cowboys fan) was watching the slow-motion replays of center Phil Costa’s early snaps that bounced off a surprised Romo’s chest and tumbled away. Costa committed four bad snaps, which he attributes to the Redskins’ defensive line yelling at him and simulating the snap count, according to ESPN.com.
With a crowd of 91,017 on hand at Cowboys Stadium, it was already tough enough for the offensive line and receivers to hear Romo, and with the addition of foul play by the Redskins, Costa was in serious trouble.
“Costa said the D-line kept calling out the snap count. We’ll get that worked out.,” Romo said. “We’ll tell the league and see if that’s something that can be fixed because you’re not supposed to be able to do that. So we’ll see. But we can’t have that happen. We shouldn’t have been in that situation.”
