The only other possibility for worst bad call was the 1980 regular season final game for the division championship against the Dallas Cowboys. It was a great game with a controversial ending. Both teams seemed assured of a playoff birth regardless of the outcome of the game. But an earlier blowout game the same day flipped a tiebreaker meaning that the Redskins had to defeat the Cowboys to get into the playoffs as the division winner. The Redskins found out about this during halftime and they were trailing. They came out of the locker room fired up and determined. They controlled the game for most of the second half, coming back and taking a seemingly insurmountable lead when John Riggins turned the corner and in an astonishing display of speed by the big fullback, outraced the entire Dallas defense for a 65 yard touchdown. But the Cowboys were not done. Hall of Famer Roger Staubach playing in his final regular season game put together the greatest comeback in his entire career putting the Cowboys back on top 35-34 on a touchdown pass with just over 30 seconds left. During the final seconds, the Redskins were frantically trying to get into range to attempt a game winning field goal by Mark Moseley -- the last of the top straight-on style kickers and the greatest clutch kicker in the history of the game. On the final play, the Redskins got into position for a 57 yard attempt with two seconds left; their quarterback Joe Theisman turned to the head referee and repeatedly called for a time-out. The referee simply turned his back on Theisman and walked away letting the final two seconds expire denying the Redskins an opportunity for a long potentially game winning field goal.
