Here Are The Washington Redskins

What's Up?
Both teams come into Sunday's matchup riding impressive win streaks. The Redskins have picked up victories in their last two games, beating the Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints by a slim combined margin of 53-41. In their two-game winning span, the Redskins have compiled 778 yards of total offense, with running back Clinton Portis leading the way with 186 all-purpose yards.

Chalk Talk
Tony Romo isn't the only starting quarterback in the league this season who replaced an aging veteran in 2006. Washington's Jason Campbell supplanted the then 36-year-old Mark Brunell in Week 11 two seasons ago. The Washington quarterback has only taken part in one Cowboys-Redskins game in his career, when the Cowboys survived, 28-23, at Texas Stadium last season. Campbell threw for a career-high 348 yards in the Week 11 matchup and will attempt to do more of the same against a Cowboys defense which has allowed 207.7 passing yards per game this season, 19th in the NFL

Redskins kicker Shaun Suisham has quietly become a solid kicker in the NFL after missing two of his six kicks with the Cowboys in 2005 and 2006 Washington guard Jason Fabini suited up in 15 games for the Cowboys in 2006 Cowboys quarterback Brad Johnson had arguably his best season with the Redskins in 1999 throwing for more than 4,000 yards and 24 touchdowns . . . Evans spent two seasons with the Cowboys (2001-02).

If Cowboys running back Felix Jones scores another touchdown Sunday, he would extend his distinction of being the only Cowboys rookie to score a touchdown in his first three NFL games to four . . . The Cowboys own an all-time record of 32-12-2 at home against the Redskins . . . Sunday's game will mark Tony Romo's 30th career start. His 22-7 record is third best in league history for a quarterback making his first 29 starts . . . After three games, the Redskins rank 14th on offense and 13th on defense in the NFL . . . Washington currently leads the NFL in turnover differential with a plus 5, one fumble their only give-away this season. That means quarterback Jason Campbell has not been intercepted in 93 passes.
