Cowboys vs. Redskins, third quarter score update: Redskins lead 14-7 thanks to Morris, Griffin

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Alfred Morris has 141 yards through three quarters, and Robert Griffin III's rushing touchdown gave the Washington Redskins the lead against the Dallas Cowboys in the fight to be the last team in the NFL playoffs.

With 15 minutes to go, the Washington Redskins have the advantage in a win-or-go-home Week 17 game, as Alfred Morris is gashing the Dallas Cowboys on the ground and Robert Griffin III gave his team a 14-7 lead with a 10-yard score.

Griffin and the Redskins went 82 yards on nine plays, finishing with a zone-read type play where Griffin pulled the ball from Morris' gut and sprinted to the pylon.The team's first drive of the second half had been a three-and-out, but they had no troubles moving the ball the next time they got it. Morris started the drive off by carrying the ball five straight times for 49 yards, and Griffin completed both of his passes, hitting Pierre Garcon twice for a combined 31 yards. He was untouched on his score.

Meanwhile, Washington put Dallas on lockdown in the third quarter: Tony Romo's first five passes were incomplete as both of the Cowboys' first two drives of the half ended in punts, including a three-and-out.

The Cowboys are currently driving in Washington territory at the start of the fourth quarter.
