In the moments that followed Washington’s surprising 20-17 overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night, everyone wanted to speak to hometown boy (and Redskins quarterback) Colt McCoy.
A reporter tried to get to McCoy but only to be shooed away by Tony Wyllie, Senior Vice President of Communications for the Redskins.
The Washington Redskins shocked the Dallas Cowboys, 20-17 in overtime on Monday night thanks to a courageous effort by third-string quarterback Colt McCoy.
McCoy’s counterpart, Tony Romo, wasn’t as fortunate. Romo left the second half with a back injury – only to return for duty late in the fourth quarter and then overtime.
According to Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, Romo suffered a back contusion and his X-rays came up negative.
Shockingly, the 6-1 Dallas Cowboys have the best record in football through the first seven games of the season.
Peyton Manning finished the evening atop the NFL record books (again).
Manning threw his record-setting 509th TD pass on Sunday night to Demaryius Thomas, which toppled previous touchdown pass king Brett Favre.
