It would have been so easy, really. I was 7 years old, and my city's pro football team had played wretchedly for my entire sentient existence. In fact, the Colts were mere weeks from being hauled out of town for good on a fleet of Mayflower trucks. Just down the road, however, lay an alternative, the best dang football team in the world actually. They boasted a cool, telegenic maestro at quarterback and a dignified wizard of a head coach. Their receivers invented a dance routine to celebrate the pure joy of scoring touchdowns.

Just four weeks removed from considering another January spent on their sofas, the Washington Redskins find themselves in the driver's seat for the sixth and final NFC playoff berth. Sunday's 35-7 rout of the Dallas Cowboys and losses suffered by Dallas, the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons vaulted the Redskins (8-6) three spots to sixth in the conference standings. Washington has posted three consecutive victories since the loss of six of eight games put the team at 5-6, and now the Redskins have an outside shot at grabbing their first NFC East title since 1991 - the last season the franchise won the Super Bowl.

LANDOVER - Washington Redskins coach Marty Schottenheimer got something he wanted, namely an awakened offense, in last night's 27-25 preseason victory over the Cleveland Browns at FedEx Field. The Redskins, who had looked awful offensively in their two previous preseason losses, came to life last night, with 327 yards in total offense, and their first extended scoring drives of the preseason. However in the reawakening of the offense, Schottenheimer also may have gotten something he didn't want - a potential quarterback controversy between incumbent starter Jeff George and new backup Tony Banks.

IRVING, Texas -- It was one of those things that seemed like a good idea at the time.When the NFL scheduled the Washington Redskins to play the Dallas Cowboys on the next-to-the-last Sunday of the season, they made it a 4 p.m. start.They figured it would be the second game of the CBS doubleheader with John Madden and Pat Summerall doing a game that would be critical to the playoff hopes of both teams.Nobody dreamed that the Cowboys would be 17-point favorites over a Redskins team that is apparently heading toward its worst season in 30 years.
