Texas Stadium - The Cowboys tried to hand their guests the game, turning the ball over six times, but the Redskins were having no part of it, as they lost to Dallas.
Any chance the Redskins had were strangled by an utter lack of a passing attack. Joe Theismann came in hobbled with a hamstring injury and played the first half before being pulled in favor of backup Mike Kruczek. Neither was effective. Until a drive late in the game, the Redskins had a net of minus nine yards passing.
