The Redskins looked like they gave up Monday in their 45-12 loss to the Giants. The Cowboys watched video of the game this week, and I'm sure many of the players already had seen it from home Monday night.
After watching that, the Cowboys have to guard against overconfidence. They upset the Giants last December and then lost the next week to the Ravens at home. Baltimore last year is a better team than the Redskins are this year, obviously, but the point is, the victory over the Saints will be hollow if the Cowboys can't follow up with a win this week. They can't just show up and expect to win.
"We've played the Redskins a lot of times," Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said. "We beat them 7-6 at our place. We have a lot of respect for the Redskins. We know they're going to give their best against the Cowboys. We have to build on what we did, and what we can do."
