Red­skins, Ben­gals bat­tle to 27-27 tie in Lon­don

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

The Wash­ing­ton Red­skins and Cincin­nati Ben­gals played to a 27-27 draw Sun­day in Lon­don as the NFL got its sec­ond tied game in a sea­son for the first time since 1997.

The sold-out crowd of 84,488 at Wem­b­ley Sta­dium left de­flated and even puz­zled as the reg­u­la­tion-time shootout be­tween Kirk Cousins and Andy Dal­ton turned into an over­time com­edy of er­rors.

“It def­i­nitely feels more like a loss than a win, be­cause we moved the ball so well and had so many op­por­tu­ni­ties to win,” Cousins said.

Wash­ing­ton (4-3-1) ap­peared to have the game won with 2:13 left in over­time, but Dustin Hop­kins hooked his 34-yard field goal at­tempt wide left.

Hop­kins, whose first over­time at­tempt sailed smoothly through the up­rights but was negated by a last-sec­ond Ben­gals time­out, ap­peared calm and un­ruf­fled in the locker room.
