Did the Washington Redskins defensive line cheat Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys?
“No way” according to rookie defensive tackle Chris Neild.
Cowboys center Phil Costa alleged the Redskins were mimicking Tony Romo’s snap count causing him to snap the ball prematurely on multiple occasions.
The Cowboys made officials aware of Costa’s complaints, but no action was taken against the Redskins during the game.
Neild says that’s because it wasn’t happening at all.
“We weren’t doing that,” Neild said Wednesday at Redskins Park. “Man, I don’t know what he’s talking about.”
The seventh-round pick out of West Virginia followed up with another emphatic denial and said the Redskins were trying to gain the upper hand in other ways.
“We were trying to get advantages everywhere around the field,” he said. “As far as doing anything in the way of cheating like that? We weren’t doing that. That was not happening. No way.”
