Alexander on special teams

Defense prepares for Cowboys' attack

The Redskins gave up 40- and 75-yard touchdown passes in the first quarter of their Week 10 victory over the Denver Broncos. Obviously, the defense must do a better job Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys at the new Cowboys Stadium. "Well the big plays come from [Dallas quarterback] Tony Romo,"...

After word emerged about the locker-room altercation earlier this season between running back Clinton Portis and fullback Mike Sellers, some Redskins fans criticized Sellers's blocking on Internet message boards and sports-talk radio shows.

Fletcher, defense work to stop Romo, big plays

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo often has succeeded at eluding pass rushers in the pocket. His ability to move well and give receivers more time to break free from coverage has resulted in many big plays for the Cowboys in Romo's four seasons as a starter. "He is a tough...
