The Washington Redskins upset those hated Dallas Cowboys yesterday 26-24. I really enjoyed this game, especially since they defeated the Cowboys on their home turf. Quarterback Jason Campbell had a great game.

IRVING, Tex., Sept. 28 — His work on the field completed, Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell still had obligations to meet Sunday after playing a major role in a 26-24 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
As a large group of Redskins fans converged at the railing atop the tunnel at Texas Stadium, Campbell stopped to chat before joining Washington’s latest locker-room celebration, thanking them for their support throughout the biggest victory of his career. It appeared the appreciation was mutual.
The crowd continued to chant his name as he disappeared beneath them, a fitting ending for Campbell after his strong performance in the first half helped propel the Redskins to an impressive victory against their biggest NFC East rival in front of 63,462.
Campbell continued his strong run that began in the second half of a Week 2 victory over the New Orleans Saints, leading the Redskins on three consecutive scoring drives to close the first half and put them ahead 17-10.
“The first half, right there, man, Jason really got us going,” Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels said. “He was good the whole game, he’s been really good, but we needed to start fast and he got us going. He’s definitely leading us, and we’re just following him.”
He managed things well in the second half as Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, wide receiver Terrell Owens and the rest of the NFL’s top offense (statistically, at least) rallied to tie the score, but never took the lead.

Of course crybaby Terrell Owens is bitching about not getting the ball enough during the game. I can’t stand Terrell Owens!!! If he’s ticked off then I’m happy 🙂
