Tough matchup for Marcus Washington

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley
That last play was a nightmare for the Redskins' defense. Linebacker Marcus Washington, who's been banged up, was trying to cover Jason Witten one-on-one. Witten used an outside move to lose Washington and freeze the safety.

If you're Jim Zorn, you can't abandon the run here. The Redskins desperately need to string a couple of first downs together. And the quick slant to James Thrash is a good start. The Redskins love to run on second down, so I wouldn't expect any pressure from the Cowboys on this next play.

This is a handoff to Clinton Portis all the way.
