Preparations for Dallas Week have begun, and in honor of Mark Rypien becoming the 46th member of the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame and the team’s next game – a Monday Night Football matchup against the Cowboys – The Redskins Blog recalls some of the Super Bowl XXVI MVP’s great performances against the rivals from Texas.

–1988: In his first ever start against the Cowboys, Rypien tore apart the Dallas defense, throwing for three touchdowns and no interceptions in a 35-17 victory. He would also add to his touchdown total with a 19-yard rushing score.

–1989: In what would become a 30-7 blowout victory for the Redskins, Rypien led an offense that would rack up nearly 400 yards of total offense.

–1991: Before the Redskins would defeat the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVI and Rypien took home MVP honors, the veteran quarterback led the Redskins to a closely fought 33-31 victory over the Cowboys. During the first quarter, Rypien found tight end Jimmie Johnson for a three-yard score. Then in the second quarter, Rypien would connect with Hall of Fame wide receiver Art Monk for a 37-yard touchdown.

Check back with The Redskins Blog later today for more from Rypien’s weekend.
