Redskins vs. Cowboys 2012: Forbath makes huge kick for Washington

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Redskins kicker Kai Forbath remains a perfect 10-for-10 on field goals in his career after hitting a key 48-yard attempt late in the team's win over the Cowboys on Thursday.

Washington Redskins kicker Kai Forbath might as well run for mayor in Washington, D.C., says Hogs Haven's Kevin Ewoldt:

Kai Forbath with a HUGE field goal to make it a 2 score game late. He should run for Mayor of DC tomorrow...he'd win in a land slide assuming he's never smoked crack.

Forbath's field goal at the 2:58 mark in the fourth quarter put the Redskins ahead by two scores, which was of massive importance at that point in the game. After trailing at halftime, 28-3, the Cowboys pulled to within a score of Washington on their previous possession.

Given the football with a little more than eight minutes left and desperately needing a long, time-consuming drive, the Redskins' offense went to work. Quarterback Robert Griffin III hooked up with Santana Moss for two key plays, one of which came on third-and-1, helping Washington to embark on an 11-play, 50-yard drive that took more than five minutes off the clock.

Forbath then put his 48-yard attempt directly through the middle of the uprights, putting the Redskins up by 10. Washington held Dallas to a field goal on the next possession, and recovered the ensuing onside kick to put the game away.
