A strip-sack and defensive touchdown ruined the Cowboys' comeback attempt in a 20-17 loss to the Redskins at FedEx Field. The Redskins led by three with five minutes to play when Ryan Kerrigan strip-sacked Dak Prescott near the goal line and Preston Smith recovered the ball for a score. Alex Smith threw a touchdown pass and Adrian Peterson fell one yard short of 100. The Redskins are first in the NFC East at 4-and-2. Prescott threw for a score and ran for another in the loss. Ezekiel Elliott was limited to 33 yards on 15 carries. Michael Gallup caught three passes for 81 yards and a touchdown as Dallas fell to 3-and-4 and 0-and-4 on the road. Brent Maher missed a field goal as time expired that would have sent the game to overtime.
