Redskins Vs. Cowboys Score Update: Dallas Settles For Field Goal, Cuts Lead To 16-15

The Dallas Cowboys keep inching back into the Monday Night Football game against the Washington Redskins, but they keep coming up short when it matters. The Cowboys drove the ball deep into Redskins territory and even got first and goal from the two-yard line, but could only come away with another short field goal to cut the Redskins' lead to 16-15.

The Cowboys got it down deep into Redskins territory thanks to some nice work from Felix Jones. On second down, Romo was sacked, but a defensive holding penalty on Oshiomogho Atogwe brought the ball to the Redskins' two-yard line. But the Redskins' defense held. Tashard Choice was stuffed on first down, and the Redskins forced two straight incompletions thereafter. With his defense playing well, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett went for the field goal and will hope his defense comes up big.
