No one on the winning Washington Redskins or the losing Dallas Cowboys seemed entirely sure about the rule that led to a penalty for "snap infraction".
Now, he has scrutinized Cowboys vs. Redskins from every possible angle to reveal a strong point-spread pick that he's sharing only at SportsLine. That was a redemptive win for a team that fell 43-19 to Drew Brees and the Saints the week prior. They just keep alternating wins and losses.
By dispatching the Cowboys, the Redskins gave themselves a solid lead in the NFC East.
If they were going to go into the season with a limited quarterback like Alex Smith, this is the year to have done so.
The Cowboys didn't necessarily do anything new against the Lions, but they most assuredly will this week against the Redskins, at least by way of signaling and remaining in sync on offense. You can probably expect a heavy dose of Prescott and Elliott on Sunday.

But he got stopped just short of the goal line, sealing the fourth straight win for New England. We have a lot of guys stepping up, making plays, nobody really cares who gets to shine.

Jamison Crowder is out, and it sounds like there is a good chance Paul Richardson could be as well. But he's been making bigger and bigger plays as his first season is progressing.

This is a tough game to predict. This should be a heck of a divisional matchup in what figures to be a low-scoring game. The feeling the Redskins have, after back-to-back, down-to-the-last-play wins, is exactly how teams feel when those special seasons - when you're pretty good, nowhere near great, but also kind of lucky and very plucky - start to arrive. Having Thompson makes the offense be able to do a lot more, including screens and short dump offs to move the ball down the field.
Just two years ago, Gruden's team missed the playoffs because they lost their final home game to a Giants team that was resting its regulars.
