With backup QB Rex Grossman replacing a benched Donovan McNabb, you can bet that the Redskins will pound the Cowboys with RB Ryan Torain, who gained 158 yards in the first half last week against Tampa Bay. Torain, who is a powerful runner, reminds many in Dallas of Stephen Davis. Washington would like to get TE Chris Cooley and WR Anthony Armstrong (six catches, 52 yards against the Bucs) more involved to help Grossman, a favorite of Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. The two were both in Houston last season. Of course, WR Santana Moss, who caught the tying touchdown last week, has always hurt the Cowboys. A lot of the success of Washington’s passing game will depend on how well rookie LT Trent Williams fares against Dallas pass rusher DeMarcus Ware.
