NFL SPOTLIGHT / WEEK 3

Tonight

September 18, 2000

Dallas at Washington* The line: Redskins by 10

* Story line: There's no better stage than Monday Night Football for Deion "Prime Time" Sanders, who plays his first game against his former Cowboy teammates. After losses the first two weeks against division rivals (Philadelphia and Arizona), Dallas is in more of a critical spot.

* Key matchup: Irving Fryar steps into Michael Westbrook's spot at receiver although Redskin defensive back Champ Bailey practiced there this week too.
