The Redskins failed to score a touchdown in a 23-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers before last week's bye. They took a 7-0 lead Sunday night on their opening drive on a 2-yard pass to fullback Mike Sellers but failed to find the end zone again.
Romo completed his first six passes -- but only for 47 yards. His accuracy deserted him on a third-and-3 at Washington's 27 when he threw a pass behind Terrell Owens and right to cornerback DeAngelo Hall. It was Hall's fourth interception of the year but his first with the Redskins, who signed him last weekend after he was cut by the Oakland Raiders.
The Cowboys were driving deep in Redskins territory later in the first half when another Romo-to-T.O. misconnection resulted in a turnover. The pass was on target, but cornerback Carlos Rogers nailed Owens just as the ball arrived. Rocky McIntosh caught the deflection for his first career interception.
But Dallas tied it at 7 on an 80-yard drive that included a 28-yard pass to tight end Jason Witten and a 25-yard strike to Owens. Barber scored from 2 yards with 1:01 remaining in the half.
Rock Cartwright returned the ensuing kickoff 58 yards, setting up a 41-yard field by Shaun Suisham with 4 seconds left to put the Redskins ahead 10-7 at the half.
In the second half, it was the Redskins' turn to spoil promising drives. Newman picked off Campbell at Dallas' 33, and Suisham drew the fury of coach Jim Zorn when a 46-yard field goal attempt fell well short of the goal posts.
