Matt Cassel completed 16-of-29 passes for 222 yards in the Cowboys' Week 13 win over the Redskins on Monday night.
Cassel didn't play well at all, missing several throws with inaccurate passes, but at least he didn't turn the ball over and helped guide the Cowboys to their first Tony Romo-less win of the season. At 4-8, they sit one game back of the 5-7 three-way-tied Eagles, Redskins, and Giants atop the worst division in football. For much of the game, Cassel rarely looked toward Dez Bryant, as the No. 1 receiver didn't catch a pass until the fourth quarter. He went off on the sidelines and had to be calmed down by the coaching staff, and at one point even took off his shoes in disgust. Cassel's longest pass of the game went to Bryant, however, as the two hooked up on a 42-yard deep ball to put the offense at the two-yard line before settling for a field goal. Cassel won't be on the streaming radar next week on the road at Green Bay.
