Keys to a Redskins victory

September 12, 1999|By Jamison Hensley

1 Stop the Cowboys' ground game. The Redskins must not revert to the form of last season, when they allowed Dallas 380 yards rushing in two games.

2 Capitalize on the Cowboys' injuries. With Dallas possibly starting two backup cornerbacks, quarterback Brad Johnson must hit his receivers on deep routes.

3 Jump ahead early. The Redskins have 16 new starters and could crumble quickly if faced with an early deficit.
