The Dallas Cowboys committed two crucial mistakes at the end of both halves that ended up being too much to overcome to secure a victory in the season opener.

With under ten seconds to go at the end of the first half, the cowboys decided to run a play instead of taking a knee and down 3-0 at halftime. The result was disasterous as Tashard Choice was stripped by DeAngelo Hall who took the fumble back for a touchdown and gave the Redskins at 10-0 advantage.

Then at the end of the game and a chance to win, a Roy Williams touchdown was overturned because of a holding call by Alex Barron after time expired. Head Coach Wade Phillips knows the Cowboys beat themselves.

"A disappointing loss obviously. I felt we gave it away. The play before the half was a big big play in the ballgame. Then the last play off the game. I've never seen that happen before when you score a touchdown and get a penalty and the game is over," said Phillips. Dallas QB Tony Romo added, "It's tough to swallow right now. A difficult feeling because you thought you won and it's kind of taken away from you."

Dallas will need to regroup as the prepare to host Chicago this Sunday.

Dallas cowboys will not win the big game as long as Jason Garrett is coordinator. He do not know how to use the talent he has. He is to predictable on his plays. Get another coordinator and the boys go undefeated.
