BEST OF THE WEEKEND IN SPORTS

The Redskins look to get back on track against the surprising Browns, the Titans look to stay undefeated when they play the Chiefs and the 49ers face the defending-champion Giants.
Capitals vs. Devils
The Caps are the highest-scoring team in the NHL so far, while the Devils rank second to last in scoring. But New Jersey is also tough on defense, so it will be up to Ovechkin and Co. to be aggressive on offense.
Chase for the Cup
Drivers head to Martinsville, where points leader Jimmie Johnson has won three out of the last four races. Greg Biffle and Jeff Burton are still within striking distance.
Texas vs. Missouri
The Longhorns clipped Oklahoma on Saturday, and it’s time for another Big 12 test. A win by the Tigers really would cloud the conference title picture.
