Brett Maher missed a 52-yard field goal that bounced off the upright on the final play of the fourth quarter that would have sent the game into overtime. Instead , Washington escaped with a 20-17 victory that it shouldn’t have had to sweat.Washington sits atop the NFC East standings at 4-2, with the Eagles and Cowboys tied for second at 3-4.Washington led by 10 points with 4:55 remaining but allowed Dallas to score a touchdown on a 1-yard Dak Prescott run with 1:37 remaining. The Cowboys used two timeouts on Washington’s ensuing possession and Alex Smith inexplicably allowed Sean Lee to push him out of bounds on third down, allowing Dallas to save its third timeout.Dallas drove from its own 36 to the Washington 29, setting up Maher for a 47-yard try. Cowboys snapper L.P. Ladouceur was called for a snap infraction, possibly the first of his 14-year career , turning the kick into a 52-yarder.It appeared Maher, who had made 16 in a row since missing his first NFL attempt, would have made the kick from 47. It hit the left upright, sending Washington into celebration.The Cowboys can’t find a way to win the road. They are undefeated at home, averaging 35.3 points and 363.3 yards in three games. They have scored 54 points in four road games and have averaged 287.8 yards per game in those losses to Carolina , Seattle, Houston and Washington.The Cowboys had only 170 yards after three quarters, including only 4 yards on six plays in the third quarter. They were fortunate still to be in the game, but Washington had to settle for chip-shot field goals after reaching the Dallas 3 and Dallas 7 in the second half.The Cowboys gained 154 yards in a frantic fourth quarter to finish with 324.Prescott completed 22 of 35 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown. He ran for 33 yards and a touchdown on six carries but also lost two fumbles, one of which Preston Smith scored on with a 1-yard return.Ezekiel Elliott had 34 yards on 15 carries.Smith went 14-of-25 for 178 yards and a touchdown. Adrian Peterson ran for 99 yards on 24 carries. We’ll know in about a week."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys News2019 Cowboys Draft: Juan Thornhill might be the exact safety that Dallas is looking forNew ,151commentsWe’ll know in about a week.CDTShareTweetShareShare2019 Cowboys Draft: Juan Thornhill might be the exact safety that Dallas is looking forGeoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsWe are less than a week away from acquiring some new members of the Dallas Cowboys. It’s the final days before Christmas and we’re not allowed to shake any of the presents underneath the tree.Dallas held their annual pre-draft press conference this past week and this is typically something that provides a lot of information on what they’re looking for. This year Stephen Jones did most of the talking which meant that Jerry didn’t have as much opportunity to tip the Cowboys hand, but it was still valuable nonetheless. Listening to either Jones member discuss things it’s easy to come away thinking that the Cowboys have a serious focus on the safety position. Stephen has said several times recently that it’s one of the spots on the team that they’ve devoted the fewest amount of resources to. Just look at the Cowboys defense and you’ll see first-rounders that have been spent at defensive end (not to mention a huge contract), linebacker, and cornerback. Safety has been tough even with the drafting of Byron Jones that they were able to salvage.What exactly are the Cowboys even looking for at safety, though? What type of player do they want? While he was keeping things ambiguous Stephen did drop some information on it , and what’s even more interesting is how one player in this draft class fits that mold almost to a t... Virginia safety Juan Thornhill. We know how much the Cowboys love position flex, it’s part of what did indeed make Byron Jones thrive once more, and Thornhill could be someone who they value from that perspective. It’s been discussed greatly as to exactly what kind of safety the Cowboys need, why not get someone who can handle both roles the position necessitates?Thornhill has athleticism that allows him to do a variety of things. He’s skilled enough to roam the backfield but strong and smart enough to make decisions when things break down. He’s a weapon that this team could very much use defensively. Imagine him under the tutelage of Kris Richard.We’ve talked about Thornhill a lot here at BTB, he’s a favorite of many for the 58th overall pick. He’s a realistic option and not one that would require a draft free fall , what’s more is he could be a legitimate star in this secondary.The NFL Draft is an unpredictable thing and Thornhill could in fact be gone in the first 57 picks. He could also be on the board one selection later and see the Cowboys pass over him. Listening to Stephen Jones though it sounds an awful lot like he’s a perfect candidate to wear a star on his helmet.Hopefully that’s the case a week from now.
