    The Washington Redskins have the worst defense in the NFL. So the Redskins need generosity from the opposing offense to win games.

    In the season opener against the Cowboys, on the final play of the first half, Tony Romo threw a pass in the flat to Tashard Choice. While struggling for a few extra meaningless yards, Choice fumbled the ball. Cornerback DeAngelo Hall scooped it up and raced 32 yards for Washington's only touchdown in a 13-7 victory.
