Featured Game Week 1 - Dallas Cowboys At Washington Redskins

     Optimism abounds in week 1, the Cowboys are picked by many to win the division. The Redskins with a new coach and new veteran QB hope for a much better season this year, perhaps even a playoff berth.

Redskins first drive with McNabb at QB is a nice 6 minute 28 second field goal drive. It would have been better for them if it were a touchdown drive but it is still a pretty good 19 PossessionPoints start.

Redskins end half with an unbelievable touchdown. The Cowboys try a desperation play, that was going nowhere with 0:04 seconds left in the half. The Redskins forced a fumble and returned it for a touchdown. No PossessionPoints but that is the kind of a play that gets coaches fired. The Cowboys will not live up to their potential this season if they continue to do dumb things like that.

Dallas had been doing everything in their power to give the Redskins the game. The Redskins just haven't taken it, in fact they gave the Cowboys great field position with a bad punt. The Cowboys capitalized on it with a 3 minute 26 second touchdown drive that was worth 30 PossessionPoints.

The Redskins hit a 49 yard field goal after a 4 minute, 24 second drive. That leaves the Cowboys needing a TD to win. As you can see both teams are still "red" so anything can happen based on our stat.

Crazy ending to this one. Tony Romo throws a TD that appears to win the game, but an obvious holding penalty was called against the offensive line. That ended the game. The Cowboys lost but easily could have won this game. Hopefully our next feature game will have at least one team get to the "Green" on offense.
