Jim Jeffcoat knew his day would be easier without All-Pro Joe Jacoby to contend with. With Jacoby sidelined by a knee injury, Jeffcoat overpowered rookie Dan McQuaid to register a team-record five sacks Sunday as the Dallas Cowboys overcame the Washington Redskins, 13-7. "I studied a lot of films on him and saw the weaknesses he had and worked on that," said Jeffcoat, the Cowboys' first-round draft pick in 1983. "It was my best game as a pro.

The way it was told to Jim Jeffcoat in 1983, "Doomsday" was the name of the defensive unit he had been invited to join, not a way of life. "When I came here," Jeffcoat says, "the Dallas Cowboys were, quote-unquote, 'America's Team.' They were supposed to go to three or four Super Bowls and have perennial All-Pros and all these things. . . "When you think of the Dallas Cowboys, you think of the Randy Whites, the Bob Lillys, Roger Staubach. You never expect to lose. That's the mentality.

Barnett suffered the injury diving for a pass during a practice drill. He is expected to be ready for the season opener Sept. 6 against New Orleans.

The Dallas Cowboys struck quickly Sunday, but the catalyst of the action was not the Cowboy offense. Ten seconds after Ray Horton intercepted a pass from Green Bay Packer quarterback Blair Kiel and returned it 65 yards for a touchdown, Issiac Holt intercepted another pass that set up a 13-yard touchdown pass play from Troy Aikman to Jay Novacek. The touchdowns, which came 73 seconds apart, sent the Cowboys on their way to a 20-17 victory.

Steve Pelluer found a different script for the final 2 minutes. Pelluer, whose interceptions in the final minutes cost Dallas two possible victories, hit Ray Alexander with a 29-yard scoring pass with 1:48 left Sunday to give the Cowboys a 26-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. "That could be a pivotal play for Pelluer's career," Dallas Coach Tom Landry said. "It's got to be a big confidence booster. He didn't pay attention to all the boos and the bad ink."

Seeking a pass rusher to complement Bruce Smith, the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday signed former Dallas Cowboy Jim Jeffcoat, who will be 34 when he plays his first game for the Bills. Jeffcoat played 12 seasons with the Cowboys and earned Super Bowl rings in two championship-game victories over the Bills. He is the Cowboys' all-time sack leader with 94.5, including eight last season. The Bills signed Jeffcoat to a three-year deal that will pay him a little less than $1 million a season.

When the Dallas Cowboys welcomed defensive back Bill Bates to their Thousand Oaks, Calif., training camp in 1983, they didn't expect him to last. A 200-pound free agent from Tennessee, he was big enough to play safety, but much too slow. But the first time Bates hit anybody at Thousand Oaks, which was the first hour of his first day, Tom Landry changed his mind about him. "The kid has a mean streak," the coach said that night. "I think he'll be here awhile after all."
