Weather report from FedEx

LANDOVER, Md. -- A collective groan went through the press box when Fox elected to cut away from the Rams-Cowboys game. We're now focused on Giants-49ers, which appeared to be a runaway until the Giants had a field goal attempt blocked and returned for a touchdown.

Here at FedEx, it's 58 degrees and there's not a cloud in the sky -- from my vantage point. It will warm up to about 61 and then cool off as we get into the evening. By the time my column's posted, it will be in the high 40s. We're dealing with a 7-mph wind 45 minutes before kickoff. Redskins kicker Shaun Suisham has been hooking the ball a little bit, but he seems to be aiming out to the right and bringing the ball back in this afternoon.

Redskins rookie Devin Thomas is warming up right in front of me. Former Oklahoma receiver Malcolm Kelly (one catch) isn't even active. Backup running back Shaun Alexander is posing for pictures. We'll see what you think, but he looks a little heavy to me.
