IRVING, Texas -- Washington’s new coach, Jim Zorn, was looking for something to help him build up a healthy hatred for the Dallas Cowboys. Turns out, he kind of likes playing his team’s archrival.
Jason Campbell threw two touchdown passes and Clinton Portis ran for 121 yards, leading the Redskins to a 26-24 victory that knocked the Cowboys from the ranks of the unbeaten.
Washington (3-1) won for only the second time in its last 13 visits to Texas Stadium. With Dallas (3-1) moving to a different suburb next season, this was the Redskins’ last visit to a place that rarely treated them well. Thus, unless Washington returns for a playoff game, Zorn will have been undefeated here.
More important, the Redskins proved they’re legit, and that means the NFC East -- already the best division in the NFL -- is now a four-way race.
