Redskins win the NFC East for First Time Since 1999
- Updated: December 31, 2012
The Washington Redskins did something many “experts” never thought they could do, win the NFC East with a rookie quarterback and running back. In a game that will forever go down in Redskins lore, the Redskins controlled the Dallas Cowboys for pretty much the entire game and claimed their 7th win in a row.
The win put the Redskins in the playoffs as the four seed, which means Washington will host the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday in the wild card round.
The Redskins rode Alfred Morris hard in the Sunday Night Football showdown, Morris had 200 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. Rookie phenom quarterback Robert Griffin III, looked like he was playing at less than 100% but still had 100 yards passing and 63 yards rushing on 6 carries (rushing TD).
DeAngelo Hall had the game of his career as he held Dez Bryant in check for pretty much the entire game. Bryant had 4 catches for 71 yards and no touchdowns.
The Redskins did what they have down all season long, force turnovers without giving any away themselves. Tony Romo threw three interceptions and extended his horrible ‘win or go home’ game record to 1-5. The Cowboys are now 2-11 in week 17 games since 2000.
After Alfred Morris scored on a 1 yard run, the crowd erupted, singing ‘Hail to the Redskins’. Thankfully, Chris Collinsworth finally found the right time to be quiet! (Video below)
