Redskins Win 27-23 In Duel With Dallas

NEW YORK -- The Washington Redskins toppled arch-rival Dallas from the ranks of the NFL's unbeaten 27-23 as Terry Allen rushed for 121 yards and Gus Frerotte threw for 192 yards and two touchdowns.


With quarterback Troy Aikman missing all but the first series with a strained right calf that is expected to keep him out 2-3 weeks, the Redskins Sunday handed the Cowboys their first loss in five games and left Miami as the only unbeaten and untied team.


"We wouldn't have beaten them if Troy Aikman played today," Cowboys coach Barry Switzer said. "Troy Aikman doesn't play defense."


After Darren Woodson's 37-yard interception return gave Dallas a 10-3 lead, Washington (2-3) scored 24 straight points. The Cowboys tried to rally behind backup quarterback Wade Wilson, who was 21 of 29 for 224 yards, but the Redskins hung on.


Dolphins 26, Bengals 23. Cincinnati (2-3) wasted a chance to tie in the closing seconds when Doug Pelfrey's 45-yard field-goal attempt drifted feet wide left and left Miami at 4-0.


Colts 21, Rams 18. At Indianapolis, Marshall Faulk rushed for a career-high 177 yards and three touchdowns as the Colts (2-2) handed the Rams their first loss as a St. Louis-based team.


49ers 20, Giants 6. In San Francisco, the 49ers bounced back from last Monday's defeat at Detroit, shutting down New York's ground game. Steve Young passed for 202 yards and directed four scoring drives for San Francisco.


Chiefs 24, Cardinals 3. In Tempe, Arizona, Steve Bono threw two TD passes and stunned Arizona with a 76-yard touchdown run, the longest ever by a quarterback in NFL history.


Raiders 47, Jets 10. At East Rutherford, New Jersey, Jeff Hostetler threw for four touchdowns, three in the first half as Oakland (4-1) built a 31-3 halftime lead over New York.


Jaguars 17, Oilers 16. In Jacksonville, Mark Brunell threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Desmond Howard with 63 seconds left in the game to rally the expansion Jaguars to their first victory, a 17-16 win over Houston.


Steelers 31, Chargers 16. In Pittsburgh, Willie Williams and Alvoid Mays returned interceptions for touchdowns in the first quarter and Bam Morris rushed for two first-half touchdowns as Pittsburgh pounded San Diego 31-16, avenging their loss in last year's AFC Championship Game.


Buccaneers 20, Panthers 13. At Carolina, backup quarterback Casey Weldon's one-yard touchdown dive in the fourth quarter helped Tampa Bay keep the expansion Panthers winless.


Falcons 30, Patriots 17. In Atlanta, Morten Andersen kicked five field goals to beat New England. (AP, Reuters)
