Cowboys Report Card

The offensive line was horrendous, allowing a season-high seven sacks.

RUSH OFFENSE: F -- Never mind Julius Jones' 59-yard run in the second half - he is still running on empty. He finished with 79 yards. The ground attack produced little when the game was still a game. Once the blowout was on, a big run against a team playing pass defense was meaningless.

PASS OFFENSE: F -- The offensive line was horrendous, allowing a season-high seven sacks. Quarterback Drew Bledsoe cracked under the constant pressure, throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble.

RUSH DEFENSE: F -- The Cowboys were run over and run down again. For the third straight week, they allowed a 100-yard rusher as Clinton Portis followed Tiki Barber of the Giants and Larry Johnson of the Chiefs to trample the Cowboys on the ground.

PASS DEFENSE: F -- The Cowboys did not have a sack in a game for the first time all year. And the coverage was even worse. Redskins tight end Chris Cooley caught three touchdown passes and the Cowboys still haven't caught up with receiver Santana Moss, who again burned them deep.

SPECIAL TEAMS: F -- Punter Matt McBriar may be looking for a job after unleashing punts of 24 and 15 yards against Redskins. The same might go for kicker Billy Cundiff, who missed a 38-yard field goal. Deep snapper L.P. Ladouceur is also in that mix with a poor snap on the field goal.

OVERALL: F -- To play this badly in game with playoff implications is inexcusable. Once 7-3, the Cowboys have lost three of the last four and on the brink of playoff elimination.
