Texas Stadium - The contrast between the pre game bravado and post game despair was telling.
Before the game, on the subject of Dallas' mobile quarterback Roger Staubach, George Allen said, "He will scramble at his own risk."
After the game, on the same subject, Allen said, "Staubach hurt us rolling out." You need see no more than those two quotes to figure out who won this one.
By the time the third quarter ended, it was 17-0 as Staubach engineered a 70-yard TD drive with Calvin Hill scoring from the one. The Redskins got their only points late in the game when Rusty Tillman blocked a Dallas punt and Ken Stone scooped it up and went in from the 12.
