For all of your griping about the officiating blunders that have seemingly gone against the Cowboys the past two weeks, take solace in knowing that the only reason the Cowboys beat the Redskins is because of an officiating mistake.
According to television replays, the final 10-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Patrick Crayton Sunday, giving the Cowboys a 7-6 victory, shouldn't have counted. Guard Kyle Kosier and center Andre Gurode were down field on the play. Kosier, anticipating that a scrambling Romo might run, was seen on video throwing a block two yards down field.
That should have been a penalty, thus nullifying the touchdown. But the officials were too busy watching Romo's whodini act and late heroics to see the penalty.
