    Punter Mat McBriar had a rough day. He had a 23-yard punt that set up a 32-yard Redskins touchdown drive, and he finished with a 24.1 net.

    But McBriar also arguably -- he argues otherwise -- had the biggest play of the game. He tackled punt returner Brandon Banks to save a touchdown.

    "Big play, wasn’t it?" Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "It really was. And if you think about where he’s been the last few weeks with his injury. Talk about a gut check. To get yourself right to make that play, those are significant plays. You talk about the plays that show up on SportsCenter. Sometimes the tackle by a punter doesn’t really show up there, but it was a significant play in the ball game."

    I thought Carter's tackle was going to be huge as well... But I think the Skins scored anyway.

    I think that Carter would have got him. He was just off to the left of Mcbriar and looked to have the angle.
