The new coach’s new offense has any number of kinks to work out. The new quarterback was shaky at times, and he couldn’t lead even a single touchdown drive. And the result wasn’t determined until, on the game’s final play, an official called a Dallas offensive lineman named Alex Barron for holding Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo – a penalty that, with no time remaining, wiped out what would have been the decisive score for the hated Cowboys.
What remained: An exasperating 13-7 victory for the Redskins over those Cowboys, the kind of win that has been absent recently at FedEx Field. It wasn’t overwhelming, like it might have been during the first stint of former coach Joe Gibbs, back in the 1980s. But for this franchise at this time, it could serve as a soothing balm for the wounds from two wayward seasons that could be characterized, at times, as embarrassing.

Next week the Redskins have another Texas team to deal with in the Houston Texans. The Houston Texans defeated the Indianapolis Colts yesterday 34-24. I hope the Redskins are ready for this game.
