Ray Lewis' makeup was running.
While Lee Evans awaits another chance in the NFL, he'll be rooting for the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday's AFC championship rematch with New England.
One game is a rematch. The other might feel like one _ at least to one of the teams.
Billy Cundiff, sporting a crisp new white No. 6 jersey, had an impressive first day of practice with the San Francisco 49ers while kicking alongside struggling veteran David Akers as coach Jim Harbaugh closely watched.
Kai Forbath keeps making field goals for the Washington Redskins, and Sunday he broke an NFL record.
Only in the NFL could a team be nearly halfway through the season before it bumps into a division rival. It's like having to wait until the second year of "Breaking Bad" to see Tio ring his bell. So it goes in pro football, which likes to build its drama slowly -- and, oh yes, make it harder for clubs to mail in games in the final weeks. (There are only 16 of them, after all.)
When Billy Cundiff missed a 31-yard field goal last week, an error that ultimately cost the kicker his job, the course of the Washington Redskins' game against the Atlanta Falcons changed.
In-season kicker tryouts have become so common for the Washington Redskins that they should be written into the schedule — like bye week. This year's tryouts will be held Tuesday, thanks to Billy Cundiff's second chip-shot miss in as many games, a 31-yarder that veered to the right against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Washington Redskins will try out kickers Tuesday in the wake of Billy Cundiff's recent inaccurate field-goal attempts, coach Mike Shanahan said.
Thanks to the NFL's breast cancer awareness initiative, there was plenty of pink on the field and sidelines at FedEx Field on Sunday. After another rough outing, kicker Billy Cundiff could be seeing more of it in the way of a pink slip Monday.
Maybe it's time for a new statistic for quarterbacks: career concussions. Robert Griffin III suffered his first Sunday in his fifth NFL game, which isn't good news for the Washington Redskins. You'd rather he had his first 400-yard performance in his fifth game or his first four-touchdown day, not his first bell-ringing.
A quarter-by-quarter recap of the Redskins' 24-17 loss against the Falcons.
Andy Reid stood in the middle of the Eagles' locker room after his team barely survived against the New York Giants last weekend, and apologized.
Five questions to keep in mind when Washington hosts Atlanta.
Billy Cundiff's story of redemption Sunday as he made the game-winning field goal softened the blow of the kicker going 1-for-4. And it ensured that as of Wednesday's practice, Cundiff was still the Washington Redskins' kicker.
"I was always mentally prepared for whatever situation was going to happen. I've been doing this for a while now," Cundiff said.
"For me, it has been laid out very clearly," Cundiff said. "It's, go out and practice well. Don't worry about anything else. Just give us your best. It's the head coach's decision, management's decision, on who's going to kick. So, I'm not going to worry about anything else. I'm just going to go out there and try to have the best practices I can."
