After combining to score 18 points in the first 58 1/2 minutes, the teams had 17 in the last 90 seconds. Dallas scored the game's first touchdown to lead 16-9 after recovering DeSean Jackson's fumble on a punt return, Washington tied it on Jackson's 28-yard TD catch, before Bailey hit the go-ahead kick.

Dez Bryant's sideline pouting aside, the Cowboys remained in the hunt in the woeful NFC East. Last-place Dallas is 4-8, one game behind the Redskins, Giants and Eagles, who are all 5-7.
