Billy Cundiff didn't make Browns fans forget kicker Phil Dawson. However, he did make them miss him a little less.
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.

The Washington Redskins will try out kickers Tuesday in the wake of Billy Cundiff's recent inaccurate field-goal attempts, coach Mike Shanahan said.
In-season kicker tryouts have become so common for the Washington Redskins that they should be written into the schedule — like bye week.

Before Robert Griffin III could seize the moment in Tampa on Sunday evening, there had to be a moment for him to seize. Washington Redskins veteran quarterback Rex Grossman knew that.

A quarter-by-quarter recap of the Redskins' 24-22 win against the Buccaneers.
Nick Sundberg knew his left arm was broken, but it was up to Washington Redskins long snapper whether he'd stay in Sunday's game. He watched center Will Montgomery practicing long snaps on the sideline with holder Sav Rocca and his mind was made up.
The Washington Redskins would have been more than content to sit on their 13-point lead going into halftime Sunday. Robert Griffin III had the Superdome quiet and the New Orleans Saints wondering what they could do to change the game.

Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan can look back and learn from his long afternoon last December against massive New England tight end Rob Gronkowski as he prepares to play another giant, New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham, on Sunday.
Cundiff, who had the unenviable job of replacing Dawson last season, agreed Thursday to a one-year, $1.02 million contract with the Browns.
