WASHINGTON — The Washington Redskins showed no interest in retaining Alfred Morris as a free agent last offseason, but it didn’t take long for him to score in the place he once called home.
Backing up rookie Ezekiel Elliott in his first game back at FedExField, Morris took over in the Dallas backfield in the fourth quarter after Elliott’s second fumble of the day.
As the team entered the red zone, the Cowboys turned to Morris, who went into the end zone swinging:
To be sure, it wasn’t the best offensive performance by Morris, and his first touchdown of the season equaled his total from 2015.
But ending up in the end zone, swinging his imaginary bat in front of an appreciative crowd of Cowboys fans and Redskins sympathizers, was the moment he spent months waiting for.
Scoring the game-winning touchdown in front of his old bosses was just the cherry on top.
