They intend on running the ball down your throat until they score.

Amid plenty of inconsistency, Washington has not allowed an opponent to rush for more than 104 yards in a game so far this year.

"I think it's absolutely mandatory that we do", Elliott said.

The Cowboys fell to the Redskins, 20-17, at FedExField in Landover, Md. "It takes all 11 men on defense to get him stopped, and our defensive line played outstanding". The Cowboys converted just five of 14 third down attempts for the game. "Guys are going to bust runs or guys are going to make plays, but it's about limiting those plays and making them earn it".

The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins are both off to pretty decent years.

Although the Cowboys were given Monday and Tuesday off, they are focused on addressing one alarming reason why the team has struggled so much on the road - particularly on offense.

"It's been on his mind, but once I started talking about all the Jimi Hendrix artifacts they have in there, he was like, 'I'm sold, '" Lawrence said. We don't have to worry about them. "I feel like the more focused we are, the more dominant we play".

Prescott was 22 for 35 for 273 yards, with one TD pass and one TD run.

Brian Quick got the start in a two-receiver, two-tight end set, but he was never targeted. "Obviously we paid it huge consideration for adding a player of that caliber". "This defense is playing as good as any other defense in the league - playing probably the best defense in the league - and we're not giving them any help", Elliott said. There didn't seem to be a depth to the embarrassment the Skins suffered with everyone watching, from the quarterback who turned an easy touchdown pass into a killer interception, to the cornerback who seemed to be running his own.

Prescott and Elliott's leadership is on full display here, and their on-field impact can be attributed as closely to the Cowboys successes or failures as any duo in the NFL. Gallup ran a stop-and-go route, Stroman bit hard on the stop and Gallup ran right past him to get wide open. Washington seeks its third consecutive home victory after it downed the Carolina Panthers, 23-17, last week, while the Cowboys are seeking their first two-game winning streak of the season and head to FedEx Field with momentum following a 40-7 drubbing of the Jaguars.

"He's a great, great player", Gruden said. A team spokesman says a plaque will be placed at Tandler's seat in the press box at FedEx Field, which will remain empty.
