While the Washington Redskins struck early and took a 7-3 lead over the Dallas Cowboys in the first quarter of Sunday’s season finale, they ultimately fell by a final of 44-17.
That early lead was the product of a 69-yard touchdown connection between quarterback Robert Griffin III and wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Griffin III would finish the day 27-of-41 for a season-high 336 yards and his first rushing touchdown since Week 17 of the 2012 season, but he also had two costly turnovers in the red zone that stunted two separate drives.

Exercise with Kettlebells
By: Barbara Kapas, DPT
It might sound new, but working out with kettlebells is a time-honored technique that is finally getting the attention it deserves. A cast-iron kettlebell resembles a mini bowling ball with a handle. Since the weight isn't evenly distributed, using a kettlebell forces your stabilizer muscles to work harder. A kettlebell workout is great for cardio, strength and flexibility training. According to the American Council on Exercise, exercising with kettlebells burns about 20 calories a minute.
