Redskins' defense ready for Elliott-led Cowboys running game

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Even after Dak Prescott rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown last week, the Washington Redskins aren't zeroing in on stopping the Dallas Cowboys quarterback.

"We don't really care about him running," linebacker Zach Brown said. "Him running is not really our concern."

Their concern is Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys' top running back who's coming off 106 yards and a score against Jacksonville. After seeing Cam Newton with Carolina, the Redskins are prepared for Prescott, but after ranking last in the league in run defense last season - including allowing 351 yards in two games against Dallas - the Redskins know it all starts with containing Elliott.
