Ryan Succop delivered a huge kick in the gut to the reeling New Orleans Saints.
So much for the Golden Age of Quarterbacks. Through two weeks, I feel like I'm playing fantasy football in 1993 (a year in which John Elway threw for a career-high 4,030 yards and a then-career-high 25 TDs on my championship-winning fantasy team. Way too many dashes in that partial sentence).
The Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles are still perfect, surprising standouts on the NFL's quickly dwindling list of undefeated teams.
NFL defenders tend to lick their chops when a rookie quarterback's on the schedule. The Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III doesn't count the same way.
The visitors' locker room inside the Superdome in New Orleans is divided into two sections.

Long snapper Nick Sundberg entered the locker room Monday at Redskins Park with a cast that extended past his elbow, the result of suffering a broken left arm in the second quarter of the Redskins' 40-32 victory at New Orleans on Sunday.
Facing Drew Brees, the most accurate passer in the NFL a year ago, the pressure figured to be on Robert Griffin III. Even though he wasn't going up against Brees directly, the potential for the New Orleans Saints quarterback to pile up yards and touchdowns seemed daunting.
