I could lead into this post with a lot of words, but really, the images say it all. Here are the faces of Rob Ryan, the Dallas Cowboys' defensive coordinator, and Mike Shanahan, the Washington Redskins' head coach, after the Cowboys hit the game-winning field goal.
The faces these men are making give you an idea of just how dramatic this game really was. It's cliche, but it's true: when the Redskins and the Cowboys square off, you can throw out the records. You just never know what is going to happen. In a game that featured so many shifts in momentum, you can understand why Ryan and Shanahan were emotionally drained by the end.
