Cowboys vs. Redskins, Week 17: Washington earns first division title since 1999

A recap of the Washington Redskins victory in Week 17 using responses from SB Nation blogs. Lets us know what you think about the game in the comments section.

The Washington Redskins defeated the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17 by a final score of 28-18. The victory clinched the Redskins first NFC East title since 1999 and earned the team their first trip to the postseason since 2007.

The game was highlighted by running back Alfred Morris and quarterback Robert Griffin III, who accounted for all four of Washington's touchdowns. SB Nation's Redskins blog Hogs Haven details the key moments of Sunday night's victory, here.

On the Dallas side of things, Girffin's performance was frustrating. With the rookie quarterback only weeks removed from an LCL sprain, he was visibly not as mobile as he has proven to be in performances earlier this season.

Despite Washington's inability to fully utilize Griffin's skill-set, the team still managed to capture the division title from Dallas in what amounted to the NFC East championship game.

However, Griffin was not the most frustrating quarterback on the field on Sunday night, as that dubious distinction belongs to Tony Romo. Having thrown two interceptions already, Romo threw a third pick in the closing minutes of the game still with an opportunity to win, which effectively ended the Cowboys' season.

Here's what SB Nation's Cowboys blog, Blogging the Boys, had to say about the interception:

In the end, when Dallas had a chance, Tony Romo threw the dumbest pass in a history of questionable decisions. I've spent a lot of time defending Romo, but that was indefensible.
