LOCAL POWER RANKINGS: WHO’S GENERATING BUZZ IN THE D.C. AREA?

BYRON LEFTWICH

The former H.D. Woodson and Marshall star resurfaced against the Redskins, and he gave the Steelers’ offense a big boost in the “Monday Night Football” win.

MARK TEIXEIRA

The Annapolis native and free agent would fit the bill for the Nationals, who sent Dmitri Young to the minors and otherwise have a Nick Johnson-sized hole at first base.

ALEX OVECHKIN

The Capitals star returned from Russia, where he visited his ailing grandfather … and the Capitals lost again, this time in overtime. He has just five points in nine games this season.

RALPH FRIEDGEN

Maryland’s coach is winless against the Hokies since taking over the Terps. He could use a victory Thursday over his old buddy Frank Beamer to stay on top in the ACC.

SANTANA MOSS

He and the rest of his teammates have a week off to get healthy, though the wideout’s hamstring may be the most important of the lingering Redskins injuries.

5. Mark Langston, 7: Missed award in 1989 when Seattle traded him to Montreal.
