Hold Seals Victory For Redskins

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) – DeAngelo Hall returned a fumble 32 yards for a touchdown to end the first half, and the Washington Redskins needed an end-of-game penalty to hold off the Dallas Cowboys 13-7 Sunday night.

Hall helped forced a fumble by Tashard Choice, scooped up the ball and somersaulted into the end zone for Washington's only touchdown, making both Donovan McNabb and coach Mike Shanahan successful in their Redskins debuts.

The Cowboys had a chance to win on the final play when Tony Romo scrambled to find Roy Williams open for a touchdown, but Alex Barron was called for holding – Dallas' 12th penalty of the game.

McNabb completed 15 of 32 passes for 171 yards for the Redskins (1-0).

Romo was 31 for 41 for 282 yards for the Cowboys (0-1).
