LANDOVER - This had the look of being a meaningless game at the beginning of the season. And sure enough, it is, but for a vastly different reason. Neither the Washington Redskins nor the Arizona Cardinals are going to the playoffs, making today's game at FedEx Field one of only three this weekend with no postseason implications. Going into the season, most figured the preseason Super Bowl favorite Redskins (7-8) would have the NFC East locked up by now and that the Cardinals (3-12) would be where they are. Arizona, which has played in its fair share of pointless games over the years, did not disappoint, but the Redskins did. The season has turned into a disaster for a team with a $100 million payroll.

Washington (1-2) at N.Y. Giants (3-0) Time: 8:35 p.m., ESPN. Line: Giants by 1. Vs. spread: Redskins 0-3; Giants 2-1. Series: Giants lead 75-55-4. Last meeting: Redskins won, 50-21, on Sept. 19, 1999, at New York. Outlook: Brad Johnson has thrown more passes than any quarterback in the league. That, in part, is Washington's problem, along with the fact that Johnson hasn't done much with those throws (two TD passes, five interceptions). Who would have thought that the Giants' Tiki Barber would have outrushed Stephen Davis at this point, 326 yards to 283 yards?

Time: 4:15 p.m. today, chs. 45, 5. Line: Redskins by 6. Vs. spread: Redskins 5-7; Cowboys 5-7. Series: Cowboys lead 46-31-2. Last meeting: Cowboys won, 27-21, on Sept. 18 at Washington. Outlook: Terry Robiskie takes over as Redskins coach in the wake of Norv Turner's firing. He's looking to light a fire under an underachieving team that has no more room for error. Despite the most expensive payroll in NFL history, Washington could be eliminated from the playoffs if it loses and Detroit, Tampa Bay, St. Louis and New Orleans win. While that may be a stretch, it shows how precarious the Redskins' postseason chances are. Notable: Cowboys have won past six meetings between the teams and the past four at Texas Stadium.

The Redskins beat the Cardinals eight weeks ago when rookie CB Champ Bailey intercepted three passes, returning one for a touchdown.

LANDOVER - Washington Redskins guard Keith Sims wants diversity. Six games into the season, all the teams are starting to look alike. And today's oponent, the 5-1 Ravens, are no different. For their past three games, the Redskins (4-2) have faced teams with strong defenses and questionable offenses. Now they face the Ravens, who epitomize that synopsis, especially with their defense top-ranked against the rush and fourth-ranked overall. "When are we going to face a defense ranked in the 20s?"
