LANDOVER — There’s a beatdown at FedEx Field.
And not in the way you’d expect.
Washington held a 22-3 lead Sunday over the Dallas Cowboys at halftime. The team dominated the half — out-gaining the Cowboys, 252-108. Washington quarterback Kyle Allen has thrown two touchdowns, Antonio Gibson has rushed in another and the defense has forced two turnovers.
Washington took advantage of a porous Dallas defense that entered the afternoon having given up the most points since 1961.
According to CBS, the Cowboys have now allowed at least 20 points in the first half of six straight games — the first team in NFL history to have done so.
At half, Allen is 9 of 15 for 128 yards. Washington has also had a lot of success on the ground — rushing for 125 yards on 18 carries. Prior to Sunday, Washington ranked last in rushing yards per game with just 82.2.
