The same group allowed seven sacks – most ever in a game played by Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo -- and multiple other knockdowns in last week’s 23-20 victory over Cleveland.
The Cowboys (5-6) struggled to run against the Redskins (11 carries, 35 yards). But Dallas finished with 458 net yards of offense.
“I did not think (offensive line) was our problem today,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “And I frankly thought defensively that I don’t know how to game plan any better. (Redskins QB Robert Griffin III) just made the plays and his receivers made the plays.”
After the game, Jones said he singled out Parnell and center Mackenzy Bernadeau for post-game praise.
