LANDOVER — The Washington Redskins can’t stop making mistakes. 

The Dallas Cowboys lead 14-7 at halftime Sunday over the Redskins, who have committed a number of penalties to help their NFC East rival keep drives around.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has two passing touchdowns, one on a 51-yard bomb to Devin Smith and another to Jason Witten on a two-yard strike. For the latter, the Redskins appeared to come up with the stop on third down on the previous play — only for Jimmy Moreland to get called for holding. The penalty gave the Cowboys a new set of downs, and Prescott found Witten on the next play. 

Washington’s lone touchdown occurred at the start of the second when Adrian Peterson rushed in the end zone.
