Game of the Week
Dallas at Pittsburgh, Sunday. An excellent test for the two-time defending champions, who will be playing a division favorite before a hostile crowd, with the most-physical and best-coverage cornerback in the game, Rod Woodson, to bedevil Michael Irvin and Alvin Harper, and the NFL's most-intense set of outside linebackers, Greg Lloyd and Kevin Greene, chasing Troy Aikman. The Cowboys get the first indication of how much they will miss Jimmy Johnson.
The End Zone
Brian Henesey, Bucknell's alltime leading rusher, finished his college career in 1991 but was bit by the football bug again three years later. The 5'10", 215-pound Henesey flew to Phoenix in February, posed as a Federal Express employee and ambushed Arizona coach Buddy Ryan, begging for a chance to try out. Ryan watched the game films Henesey had brought along and signed him. Henesey—nicknamed Rudy after the former Notre Dame player and his eponymous movie—made the Cardinals' 53-man roster as a backup fullback.
