NFL REPORT

Scoreboard

Tonight's Game
Dallas at Washington (9 p.m., Ch. 7). The Cowboys (0-2), with quarterback Troy Aikman sidelined for the second straight week by a concussion, have won five straight against the Redskins (1-1).

The Redskins opened their checkbook and were the NFL's big attraction when the season began. But they've played sluggishly in both games. They've also lost their top receiver, Michael Westbrook, with a knee injury.

Dallas will have Randall Cunningham at quarterback for the second straight week while Aikman sits with the ninth concussion of his career.
