While the biggest storyline coming out of Washington, D.C. is the gruesome injury to Alex Smith, the Redskins just had an insane streak come to an end.

It might sound impossible, but Washington hasn't experienced any lead changes through the team's first nine games. Either the Redskins won the game from the opening score or lost from the moment they trailed.

However, that wasn't the case for today's matchup between the Redskins and the Texans.

Although Houston led 20-14 over Washington, Adrian Peterson found his way into the end zone to give the Redskins the one-point advantage.

If that wasn't enough to snap the streak, the Texans then retook the lead with a field goal.

Sure, this awesome streak might not be replicated for quite some time. Yet, watching these two playoff contenders battle until the final whistle is the perfect treat for football fans.

The Texans currently lead 23-21 against the Redskins, as the fourth quarter is nearing its conclusion.
