IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys did their best to give the Washington Redskins a chance to climb back into last night's nationally-televised game at Texas Stadium. Dallas took a 14-point second-quarter lead, but a slew of penalties kept the Cowboys from breaking it open in the first half. Then leading by seven in the third quarter, Dallas turned the ball over when running back Julius Jones fumbled at the Cowboys' 39-yard line. But the Redskins did not want to be impolite guests. They gave the ball right back to the Cowboys on Mark Brunell's first interception of the season, and Dallas put the clamps on what would be a 27-10 victory.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The limping Washington Redskins should find some leftover Halloween costumes for their visit to chilly Rich Stadium tonight.The Redskins need to dress up as some losing team such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the New England Patriots.That's because the Buffalo Bills seem to be convinced they're playing the Redskins team that routed them in Super Bowl XXVI, 37-24, just 21 months ago, not the struggling 1-5 Redskins team that is showing up for the game.The Bills, who are making history this year, have extra incentive against the Redskins.

Washington Redskins fullback Larry Centers doesn't want this to be his last trip to the desert. Centers, who spent nine years with the Arizona Cardinals before joining the Redskins last season, could be saying goodbye today to the city where he started his professional career. Arizona voters will decide Tuesday whether to approve a proposition that would help finance a new stadium for the Cardinals (2-6), who will have their last chance to make a statement when they take on the Redskins (6-3)

SAN FRANCISCO -- Forget the odds. Forget the matchups. Forget the records.The thing to remember is that the San Francisco 49ers are playing the Washington Redskins in a playoff game today at Candlestick Park. The teams have won seven of the past 11 Super Bowls.Both know what it takes to win a game like this, and both know what it's like to lose.That's why it's tempting to overlook the fact that the Redskins are the biggest underdogs on the board -- nine points -- this weekend and that they lost four of their last seven regular-season games and backed into the playoffs with a 9-7 record.

When Bobby Beathard was general manager of a Washington Redskins team that won two Super Bowls in the 1980s, he was dubbed the "smartest man in pro football" by Sports Illustrated.His smartest move was hiring an obscure San Diego assistant named Joe Gibbs as coach in 1981.At the time, the skeptics wondered if the Air Coryell offense -- created by Chargers coach Don Coryell -- would work on a Redskins team with John Riggins.It didn't. The Redskins started Beathard 0-5 in Gibbs' first season before he switched to a one-back offense with Riggins and went to the Super Bowl in his second and third seasons, vindicating Beathard.

The setting looks all too familiar. A team seeking a postseason berth needs only to win its regular-season finale to advance to the playoffs. But the opponent, a below-.500 squad with nothing to play for, pulls off the upset. The Washington Redskins have seen this happen before. In fact, Washington did the exact thing last season, wrapping up a 6-10 year by upending the Minnesota Vikings. That's why the Redskins (9-6), who will qualify for their first postseason since 1999 with a victory at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field at 4:15 p.m. today, are not taking the 6-9 Eagles lightly.

ASHBURN, Va. - A day after saying nobody on his team lacked effort in Saturday's 24-3 drubbing at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Washington Redskins interim coach Terry Robiskie apparently found someone who did. Robiskie cut backup safety Matt Stevens, who had played in every game this season and started three. Stevens, 6 feet, 206 pounds, had 41 tackles and one interception this year. Robiskie was particularly upset over Stevens' missed tackle during the Steelers' 53-yard punt return for a touchdown in the second quarter.

ASHBURN, Va. - Special teams for the Washington Redskins have been anything but that lately, but coach Steve Spurrier expressed his confidence in the embattled unit that was woeful on Sunday. The Redskins' 26-10 win over the Houston Texans made it easy to overlook two missed field goals, two 10-yard punts and three punt returns that gained a total of 3 yards, but Spurrier said the team did not plan any significant changes. Cornerback Champ Bailey will return to the punt return duties he had handled for six games before losing the job to defensive back Bruce Branch last week after fumbling punts in consecutive games against the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles.

ASHBURN, Va. - For two guys who showed up late, Rod Gardner and Fred Smoot have made up for lost time. Gardner and Smoot, the Washington Redskins' first two draft picks, each arrived at training camp tardy, as details of their contracts were being hammered out, with both signing the first week of camp. As a result, there was no reason to believe that either of them, much less both, would be able to supplant the veterans ahead of them on the depth chart and crack the starting lineup for today's season opener in San Diego.

ASHBURN, Va. - Marty Schottenheimer believes in "The Plan." In the flies-in-the-face-of-convention stance that every NFL coach carries into a new job, Schottenheimer, the new boss of the Washington Redskins, has a plan that he knows will work. And the plan? Simply to work his team as hard as any other team in the NFL. In spite of evidence that suggests otherwise - namely a suspect offensive line, a pair of quarterbacks, Jeff George and Tony Banks, who have never fulfilled their promise, and a talented but potentially brittle defense - Schottenheimer says that, with a little hard work and some faith, the Redskins will be better than the 8-8 record their star-studded, big-money roster produced last season.

IRVING, Texas -- Darrell Green admittedly never laid a hand on Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith, much less his shoe or sock or ankle.Smith's 48-yard touchdown run with 3:10 remaining knocked the stuffing out of the Washington Redskins yesterday at Texas Stadium, and made Green a candidate for analysis."
