IRVING, Texas -- Yeah, the Cowboys are dead. Real dead."When was the last time you all played this well?" someone asked Michael Irvin."In practice Friday," Irvin said, not missing a beat.Yeah. Real dead."The regular season was boring for us," Cowboys tight end Scott Galbraith said. "Now, it's the playoffs. Different deal entirely."We noticed."Felt like the old days out there today," Irvin said. "Real nice feeling. We had lots of fun out there today."If this is dead, every other team in the NFL should start next season with a death wish.

IRVING, Texas -- The same type of numbness Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith experienced in his left elbow was also felt among the partisan Cowboys' crowd of 64,560 that filled Texas Stadium yesterday.And as he left the stadium late in the game holding his elbow, grimacing in pain, the Cowboys' opportunity to win another Super Bowl started to fade in his shadow as he walked into the tunnel.But it wasn't long before the Cowboys were celebrating a 34-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals -- and the good health of their most valuable player.

LOS ANGELES -- Daryl Johnston doesn't mind being just another face in the Dallas Cowboys crowd."I enjoy being able to just go around and not really be recognized. When you see guys like Emmitt [Smith] and Michael [Irvin] and Troy [Aikman] and what they have to go through from the personal side just walking around town, it's very difficult. It's a lot tougher than people realize," he said.It's not a problem for Johnston because as he blocking back for the Cowboys, he rarely gets noticed.That changed a week ago when CBS announcer John Madden lauded him for his role in the 30-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC title game.

IRVING, Texas -- Just a week ago, the Dallas Cowboys appeared to be a team going nowhere.They were 3-7 and their top two offensive players, quarterback Troy Aikman and running back Emmitt Smith, were complaining about the offense.Aikman wanted to open it and Smith wanted the ball more.Suddenly, the Cowboys appeared to have solved all of their problems. They have scored 51 points in victories over the Los Angeles Rams and the Washington Redskins in a five-day span.Smith got the ball 23 times and ran for 132 yards, including a 48-yard touchdown burst in a 27-17 victory over the Washington Redskins yesterday.

IRVING, Texas - With fireworks blasting and celebrities stalking, Emmitt Smith ran past Walter Payton in the NFL record book yesterday and the Dallas Cowboys turned it into as big a deal as an individual can enjoy in a sport that emphasizes team. Smith passed Payton's 16,726 rushing yards with 9:10 left to play against the Seattle Seahawks. Needing 93 yards, Smith got 109 on 24 carries, his first 100-yard game of this, his 13th season. Although Smith scored on the drive to tie the score, the Cowboys lost, 17-14, in a game that was incidental to the festivities organized by owner Jerry Jones.

Emmitt Smith dreamed about this as a teenager, planned for it as a rookie, lived it for the past year as his personal countdown grew louder and shorter. Sometime soon - possibly on Sunday - the Dallas Cowboys' running back will pass Walter Payton as the most prolific rusher in NFL history. It will be the crowning accomplishment in a career destined for the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, and a deserving tribute to one of the game's most respected stars. But what makes it all the more remarkable is that Smith, now 33, envisioned this day for the first time as a youngster - at the age of 14 or 15, he says - growing up in Escambia, Fla. It was right around that time that Payton slashed past Jim Brown in the record book.

When the NFL owners passed that silly rule last March forbidding players from taking their helmets off on the field, it was immediately dubbed the Emmitt Smith rule.That's because Smith had a habit of taking his helmet off when he scored a touchdown -- which he used to do frequently.Going into this season, the Dallas Cowboys' running back had rushed for 108 touchdowns, the third-highest total ever.Believe it or not, Smith hasn't run for a single touchdown in the first four games this season, so he hasn't had a chance to take off his helmet to celebrate.

Football fans don't follow numbers the way baseball fans do.Football, for example, has no comparable numbers to 2,130, 56 and .367.This explains why football fans couldn't identify the number 16,726 the way baseball fans could identify 2,130 with Lou Gehrig's consecutive-games playing streak -- before Cal Ripken broke the record last season -- 56 with Joe DiMaggio's consecutive-game hitting streak and .367 with Ty Cobb's lifetime batting average.But football fans may soon start to recognize 16,726 -- the career rushing yards total rolled up by Walter Payton.

Brady Anderson plays with appendicitis.

IRVING, Texas -- The defensive players were knocking each other and their coaches. The young quarterback seemed shaky and over his head. The young offensive guard said the coaches didn't think he was tough enough to play hurt. Jimmy Johnson said they had the worst talent in the league.That was just some of the baggage the Washington Redskins carried into Texas Stadium yesterday when they were 18-point underdogs against the Dallas Cowboys.The Redskins, who are tied with Cincinnati for the worst record in the NFL during the last three years, somehow pulled together to spring their biggest upset in this long and storied rivalry, shocking the Cowboys, 24-17, before 64,866 fans.
