Cowboys Vs. Redskins Score Update: Jason Witten 59-Yard Touchdown Gives Dallas 24-17 Lead

The Dallas Cowboys have seized momentum back from the Washington Redskins midway through the fourth quarter. Tony Romo made another huge play outside the pocket, rolling out and finding tight end Jason Witten for a 59-yard catch and run to put Dallas up, 24-17, with 8:48 to play in the game.

Romo has now made two huge plays outside the pocket rolling to his left for touchdowns. First, he found Laurent Robinson to tie the game at 17. This play, though, was even more demoralizing for the Redskins. It was third and eight, and Romo was flushed to his left. Witten broke off his route, sat in the middle of the field and Romo hit him in stride, allowing Witten to race past the Redskins' secondary for the touchdown.
