Site: Mile High Stadium, Denver
Time: 4 p.m.
TV/Radio: Chs. 45, 5/WLIF (101.9 FM)
Line: Broncos by 9 1/2
The series: The teams are 3-3 in regular-season action, and the Redskins beat the Broncos, 42-10, in Super Bowl XXII. The Redskins haven't won at Mile High Stadium since their first game there in 1970, although they have played only two other games there.
What the Redskins have to do to win: Get a running game going so they can control the game on the ground, take the pressure off Gus Frerotte and keep the ball out of John Elway's hands.
What the Broncos have to do to win: Be patient. Jeff Hostetler gave a seminar on how to beat the Redskins last week by running the ball and throwing short. Elway, who likes to go long, has to be just as patient as Hostetler was.
Outlook: There are very few good times to play against Elway, but this is one of the worst for the Redskins since they likely will be missing two of their top three cornerbacks and are expected to start a rookie, Scott Turner, at that position. The Broncos should win this one easily.
Stellino's pick: Broncos 28, Redskins 10 -- Baltimore fans like pro football so much that they'll even watch the Redskins, who last week got a 14.0 rating (percentage of TV sets tuned in). How good was that? In Carolina, the expansion Panthers got only a 14.5 rating.
