• The crowd began to form outside the stadium at 10 a.m. yesterday for the “Fox NFL Sunday” pregame show — and it consisted of almost entirely Cowboys fans. The jerseys of Julius Jones, Jason Witten and Terrell Owens were represented. It wasn’t until around 10:40 that the first group of Redskins fans arrived, one wearing a Santana Moss jersey.

• Interesting sight about two hours before the game. A Redskins equipment man was walking on the field with a helmet craned to his ear. We later learned he was testing the quarterback’s helmet radio system used to communicate with the coaching staff.

• Regardless of yesterday’s result, it may be time for the Redskins to return to their roots: White jerseys and burgundy pants. The white-on-white look worked last year when, after the Redskins lost three straight to fall to 5-6, they changed uniforms to alter their mojo. They went 6-1 (including playoffs) the rest of the way. The jig is up on the white-on-white, though.

• Following Dallas’ first touchdown, did anybody at the stadium notice how the Redskins’ sideline was sleeping? The Cowboys committed to going for two points right after the touchdown and made no attempt to disguise it. The Redskins, though, had to call time out when cornerback Kenny Wright ran onto the field late, giving them 12 men on the field. Dallas’ conversion attempt failed after the timeout.
