Keys to a Redskins victory

September 19, 1999|By Jamison Hensley

1 Control Giants defensive end Michael Strahan. One of the NFL's top pass rushers must be kept away from injury-prone Redskins quarterback Brad Johnson.

2 Play with poise. The Giants defense accounted for two touchdowns last week and is a threat to capitalize on mistakes by the Redskins, who have a growing reputation of choking late in games.

3 Make sure Dan Wilkinson and Dana Stubblefield show up. The run-stoppers combined for two tackles against Dallas and cannot afford a similar showing against the makeshift Giants backfield.
