VIDEO: Redskins Take 10-0 Lead Over Cowboys After DeAngelo Hall Causes Fumble, Scores

Talk about a sudden turn(over) of events.

Heading into the half during a game that had featured only a field goal by Redskins kicker Graham Gano, Dallas paid a steep price for another mistake.

The Cowboys' third running back, Tashard Choice, had just caught a fluttering shuffle pass from quarterback Tony Romo, and was near the sideline when DeAngelo Hall hit him, stripped the ball and sprinted for the end zone, hands raised. The ensuing extra point was the last play of the half, and Washington went into the locker room with a 10-0 lead.

It brought sudden life to a game that had slipped into an exchange of punts (three by each team) and penalties (two for Washington but five for Dallas, for 41 yards).
