TEMPE, Ariz. Very quietly and discreetly, one Redskins player after another would ask a reporter or cameraman, "What did the Cowboys do?" and "Are the Giants really in overtime?" Their game over, the Redskins felt it was permissible to inquire as they dressed following a rare victory here in the desert. Consecutive losses to the Buccaneers, Raiders and Chargers pushed the Redskins to the back of the playoff pack, and consecutive victories over the Rams and Cardinals force them to do two things: win every game left on the schedule and get help.
