In the Dallas Cowboys’ first meeting with the Washington Redskins, Tony Romo was sacked five times as the ‘Skins upset the Cowboys 20-17 in overtime at AT&T Stadium.
Considering, it’s no wonder that keeping the Pro Bowl quarterback off the turf has been a point of emphasis all week for Dallas, as they prepare for a rematch with their oldest rivals. According to center Travis Frederick--who, along with left tackle Tyron Smith and right guard Zack Martin, is set to go to the Pro Bowl with Romo--there’s no great secret to what the offensive line needs to do to correct their pass protection woes in the regular season finale.
“They’re not going to try to trick you,” Frederick said of the Redskins’ pass rush, per David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “They’re just going to do it and they’re going to do it well. We have to try to find a way to outmaneuver that. They’re going to try to put pressure on Tony and put some hits on him. It’s our job to kind of correct that, get it fixed and find ways to adjust to that.”
