Follow live: Cowboys 38, Redskins 14

It's a clash of 5-6 NFC East teams on Thursday Night Football.

The Cowboys ride a three-game losing streak into their home bout with the Washington Redskins, one week after a Thanksgiving Day clunker against the Los Angeles Chargers.

4th quarter

It's a touchdown frenzy in the fourth! Alfred Morris punched in a one-yard touchdown with just under five minutes to play in the game, and Rod Smith added a short score with just over a minute-and-a-half to go.

Kirk Cousins went 8-of-8 on Washington's first drive of the fourth quarter, and TCU grad Josh Doctson grabbed a 14-yard touchdown to cap an 87-yard drive to keep the Redskins in it.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, Dez Bryant hauled in his 72nd career receiving touchdown, leaping for the catch despite a pass interference call, to put the Cowboys up 24-7.

3rd quarter

The Cowboys, trying to flip the recent second half script, started with two stops in the third quarter Thursday night. Dallas also punted on its first drive of the second half.

2nd quarter

The Redskins got a much-needed touchdown on a 20-yard pass to Ryan Grant in the waning moments of the second quarter. The 75-yard drive was fueled in large part by a 33-yard catch-and-run by Jamison Crowder just after the two-minute warning.

Ryan Switzer put the Cowboys up three scores with an 83-yard punt return touchdown late in the second quarter.

The Cowboys' second takeaway of the game proved fruitful in the second quarter. A strip-sack by DeMarcus Lawrence gave him the league lead in sacks and gave the Cowboys the ball at the 19 yard line. Dallas had to settle for a Dan Bailey field goal after six plays.

After taking over following an interception, the Cowboys scored on the seventh play of the second quarter. Dak Prescott found Jason Witten for an 8-yard touchdown with just under 11 minutes to go in the half.  

1st quarter

Both teams went scoreless in the first quarter. The Cowboys thwarted a potential Redskins scoring drive in their own red zone with a Jeff Heath interception, on a pass that deflected off the hands of Washington wide receiver Jamison Crowder.

Pregame

The Redskins, who really didn't want to wear their all-mustard-yellow "Color Rush" uniforms Thursday night, appear to have won the fight and will wear burgundy on burgundy.

It's the third year in a row they've dodged the Color Rush bullet.
