PFF Game Ball:
DeMarcus Ware, OLB, Dallas Cowboys
Anthony Spencer may have caused the game sealing fumble, but it was the continual presence and pressure brought by Ware that stopped the Redskins getting into a rhythm on offense. A 10 total pressure day is pretty good.
A Tale of Two Corners
It seemed rather odd for DeAngelo Hall (-2.9) to come out and say he was going to target Tony Romo’s ribs. After all, this is a cornerback who has rushed the passer just once all season (in 176 snaps). That didn’t change in this game, and perhaps he should have been less focused on Romo, and more on covering the Cowboys’ receivers. Hall gave up five of the five balls thrown his way, for 85 yards, allowing four first downs and plenty of yards after the catch. In contrast, Josh Wilson (+3.1) made some big plays in the secondary. He allowed only three of eight balls thrown his way to be completed, in large part due to him breaking up four passes.
