Cowboys receiver/returner Dwayne Harris: Harris’ 86-yard punt return for a touchdown and 90-yard kickoff return that set up another score were huge swing plays for the Cowboys. Harris finished with 222 return yards.

Cowboys cornrebacks Brandon Carr and Orlando Scandrick. The pair combined on 10 tackles and one interception. Scandrick’s fourth-quarter interception basically crushed the Redskins’ comeback hopes. Carr had six tackles.

Cowboys linebackers Sean Lee and Kyle Wilber. Wilber might have made the biggest play in the game when he sacked Robert Griffin III, forced a fumble and recovered the fumble in the fourth quarter that led to a score. He also had three tackles, one tackle for loss and one quarterback hurry. Lee had 10 tackles and one pass defensed. His first-quarter stop on Griffin at the 2 yard line early in the game set the tone for the defense.

Cowboys defensive line. There aren’t many healthy bodies left on the line, but Jason Hatcher is leading the way. He had six tackles, two sacks, two hurries, one tackle for loss and one forced fumble. A slute to George Selvie, Nick Hayden and Ware, before he was injured, in controlling the Redskins’ read option.

Redskins linebacker Perry Riley. He did his part, but it wasn’t enough as a unit. Riley had five tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss and three hurries.
