Vinny Testaverde has played as if he's been to the fountain of youth, leading the NFL with 667 passing yards after two games. But that isn't a surprise because Testaverde, 40, still has a cannon arm. Testaverde often performs like a Pro Bowl player when provided decent protection. The 18-year veteran typically turns into a senior citizen when forced to move out of the pocket -- and his passing accuracy swoons. So Redskins assistant head coach Gregg Williams's blitz-oriented defense will try to flush Testaverde out of his comfort zone. The Cowboys aren't thrilled that their quarterback is undergoing a passing renaissance. Coach Bill Parcells prefers a ball-control offense, with a balance of rushes and passes. But Dallas has been uncharacteristically pass-oriented early in the season because its running game has struggled. The Cowboys are without rookie Julius Jones, who is out for about two months after breaking his shoulder blade last week. Dallas has turned to Eddie George, 31, who appears to be in the twilight of a brilliant career, and Reshard Lee, a reserve from Middle Tennessee State. Testaverde will try to counter Washington's blitzes with quick, short passes. Despite Testaverde's fast start, he was criticized last week by Parcells for a few bad decisions that the Cowboys' coach won't tolerate from a veteran.

Dallas's Vinny Testaverde, who will turn 41 in November, is leading the NFL in passing yards with 667 after two games.
