Overall Preview: The Washington Redskins come to Texas Stadium. Our home crowd will be electrified, The Cowboys are coming off a shootout and clutch win against the Chargers, its Monday Night Football, and the Cowboys will be inducting “The Triplets” Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith. Expect the Cowboys to come out the gates and take it to the Redskins. The Redskins are 0-5 the last 5 times the Cowboys have hosted the Redskins. Keys to the game will be to slow down Clinton Portis, win the battles in the trenches, limit penalties and turnovers, create turnovers on defense, and field position will be key.

QB preview: Bledsoe is poised to have another great game, this will mark his debut at home in Texas Stadium. Bledsoe has had great success with a Parcells ran team, and you can bet the results will be the same on Monday Night. Bledsoe has various weapons in the air attack, the Redskins will NOT be able to stop them all, and someone will be open, whether that be Key, Glenn, Witten, or the new weapon in Crayton.

RB preview: Look for Julius Jones to really light it up on the ground. Julius wants to have a career game at home against the much hated Redskins. In addition, he wants to be seen by Emmitt Smith, The Cowboys greatest running back ever. Besides Bledsoe, Expect Julius to have a huge day 150+ yards and 2TDS

WR preview: Terry Glenn has had a quiet preseason, but it’s only a matter of time before Glenn has a breakout game, and this could be the week. Glenn has had good games against the ‘Skins in the past, and now he’ll have Bledsoe at the helm to deliver the ball to him. Keyshawn matches up well against the ‘Skins CBs. Expect the Cowboys to throw the ball to rookie Carlos Rogers early and often, his play is suspect and you can bet the Cowboys are going to take their shots at him. Patrick Crayton is the Redskins killer; he proved it last time these teams played. Crayton gave us a preview of his composure, and we’ll see Crayton involved in the game as well. Newly acquired WR Peerless Price status for the game is still up in the air, BUT if he makes the active roster, we could see total domination in the passing game; we will see some 4 wideout sets.

TE preview: Jason Witten will provide key blocking and will demand a LB to cover him. I like Witten’s chances against these Redskins LB corps. If anything this will aid in the running game, less men in the box, more game breaking runs for Julius.

PK preview: As long as Cortez can make the FGs when his number is called that’ll be fine, missed field goals will not be acceptable, every point will count especially against a division rival like the Redskins.

DST preview: The defense will have their hands full again this week with Clinton Portis and Santana Moss, other than that, if the Cowboys slow them down, it could be a long day for the Redskins. The Cowboys secondary is revamped. Anthony Henry and Terence Newman can handle single coverage, and big hitters Roy Williams and Killer Davis will be roaming around looking for the next big play.OT Jansen will have his hands full, and he’s not 100% with a broken finger, expect a mad rush from both ends and OLBs. We’re going to be in Brunell’s face all day.
