Washington coach Mike Shanahan acknowledged that he hopes to impede the Dallas Cowboys’ preparations for Sunday’s by not naming a starting quarterback. Donovan McNabb has started every game at quarterback this season, his first with the Redskins. McNabb has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns: 15-14. He has never done that over a full season in his previous 11 years.
Before this month, the Dallas Cowboys had allowed only two receivers to gain 200 yards in a game in their 50-season history. That total has doubled in two games. Philadelphia’s DeSean Jackson and Indianapolis’ Reggie Wayne hit the 200-yard mark in December.
“There’s no secret, let’s run over here and do this different or play this different coverage,” cornerback Orlando Scandrick said Wednesday. “We just need to play better.”
