Keys to a Redskins victory

October 24, 1999|By Jamison Hensley

1 Bottle up Emmitt Smith. The Eagles and the Giants have proven the past two weeks that the Cowboys are vulnerable when they can't run the ball.

2 Tell Brian Hansen to punt away from Deion Sanders. Hansen, who was signed Friday to replace injured Matt Turk, got the job because of his ability to angle the ball out of bounds.

3 Hit receiver Michael Westbrook on quick outs. Westbrook is bigger and stronger than Sanders, but may have difficulty eluding him on longer pass routes.
