PASSING OFFENSE: B -- Quarterback Vinny Testaverde threw his 20th interception and had a quarterback rating of 74.1. But receiver Keyshawn Johnson had a go-to game, and Testaverde and rookie receiver Patrick Crayton won the game with a 39-yard touchdown.
RUSHING OFFENSE: D -- The Cowboys ran for 89 yards on 30 carries. After rushing for 80 or more yards in five straight games, Julius Jones was held to 57 yards on 22 carries. He had 11 carries of 1 yard or less.
PASS DEFENSE: B -- La'Roi Glover led the way on pass defense with two sacks. Terence Newman and Lynn Scott had interceptions. The defense allowed just two completions of 20 yards or more. Quarterback Patrick Ramsey passed for just 158 yards in the game.
RUSH DEFENSE: B -- Running back Clinton Portis was held to 32 yards on 10 carries before leaving with an injury. The Cowboys held the Redskins to 84 yards on 25 carries while extending their streak of not allowing a 100-yard rusher to nine games.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B -- Keith Davis was great again on special teams, forcing a fumble in the fourth quarter. Billy Cundiff kicked two field goals. The only negative was being gashed for a 39-yard punt return by Antonio Brown.
COACHING: B -- Never mind that they were officially eliminated from the playoffs; the Cowboys ended a two-game losing streak with a much-needed victory. As least for right now, that feels a lot better than evaluating quarterback Tony Romo for the future.
