1 Tony Romo's rib: Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will play one week after suffering a fractured rib and punctured lung. The lung has healed, but the rib remains painful. He will wear a protective vest, but the question is how much punishment he can take from Redskins players, who have openly stated they will target his injury.
2 Grounded run game: The Cowboys need to take some pressure off Romo by running the ball. But the problem is they have not run well all season, averaging 54.5 rushing yards per game to rank 31st in the league. It doesn't help that running back Felix Jones is nursing a dislocated shoulder.
