C -- Troy Hambrick initially responded to the sideline presence of Adrian Murrell with two fumbles. That Hambrick finished with 100 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries showed his competitive side. Murrell added 20 yards in the team's 208-yard rushing day.
C -- Quincy Carter was 17-of-33 passing for 196 yards with one touchdown, two interceptions and a rating of 54.6. He was also undone by five drops. He made enough plays, however, to lead his team to victory.
A -- The Cowboys sacked Patrick Ramsey four times, notching their highest sack total since recording six in the 2002 season opener. Safeties Roy Williams and Darren Woodson continued to make a case for being the best safety tandem in the league with 10 combined tackles, including two sacks, and two pass deflections. Cornerbacks Terence Newman and Mario Edwards are holding their own on the outside.
B -- The Redskins ran okay, rushing 16 times for 89 yards. However, Steve Spurrier didn't stick with it, which was to the benefit of the Cowboys. Linebackers Dexter Coakley and Dat Nguyen combined for 14 tackles.
B -- A penalty robbed Derek Ross of a touchdown on the opening kickoff. He averaged 27.5 yards on two returns. Joey Galloway had his best game on punt returns, averaging 15.4 yards on five returns, including a long of 36.
B -- It wasn't pretty. Mike Zimmer, however, gets credit for calling a great defensive game. Offensively, Bill Parcells and Maurice Carthon didn't let the offense get down after a rough early start. A win is a win is a win. That's all that matters to the Cowboys after Sunday's ugly victory, which gave them six beautiful wins on the season and put the 5-11 funks in the past.
