Detroit Lions linebacker Travis Lewis was suspended Tuesday for the final four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
This was the kind of passing clinic for which Peyton Manning has become famous.
With Nick Foles leading the way, the Philadelphia Eagles have charged into the playoff picture.
Michael Vick finishes practice and is eager to get home to celebrate his daughter London's sixth birthday. First, he takes time to put smiles on many other children's faces.
After another slow start and listless performance, the Washington Redskins may have sealed their post-season fate.
One play by the Eagles summed up a lot of what's wrong with the Redskins defense.
What was once a season that could have been truly special is in increasing danger of being remembered for the wrong reasons. With another loss, their seventh in their first 10 games, the Redskins have not only established themselves as the worst team in their division, but they have seemingly done so with a litany of issues they cannot manage to correct.
The Redskins had the ball down a TD with a chance to tie the game with less than 30 seconds left, but one ill-advised throw from Robert Griffin III later, Washington fell to 3-7.
Nick Foles completed 17 of 26 passes for 298 yards and the Philadelphia Eagles snapped a 10-game home losing streak by defeating the Washington Redskins 24-16 on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

Five questions Redskins beat writer Zac Boyer has heading into Washington's Sunday afternoon game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The first drive of his professional career, as a fill-in last Nov. 28 at FedEx Field against the Redskins, ended with an interception. His second was another interception thrown into double coverage. But the quarterback the Redskins saw then and the one they will see this weekend in Philadelphia no longer resemble each other.
Just like the Packers' offense, fantasy owners with Rodgers on their team are going to experience a dip in production. Even with Rodgers having a "mediocre" year, it's unlikely the backup can fill the void. If you're lucky enough to have Tony Romo or Matthew Stafford, good drafting. If not, good luck trying to grab Case Keenum or Nick Foles off the waiver wire.
With much to celebrate and lament, here's a look at the NFL halfway through the 2013 season.
The real Nick Foles is a little Peyton-esque.
"It wasn't a smart decision. It was a mistake," Foles said. "I was happy there was a penalty. I was off-balance and threw across the middle. That's a no-no."
"The best thing about Mike is he's a great team player," Foles said. "He's been nothing but helpful toward me throughout everything, whether it's me on the sidelines and him maybe telling me what he sees out there. If it's a time when composure's an issue, we'll just sit there and talk. And that's what's special about Mike, he's a good person. Just to see him being a team player throughout this, it's been great for me to look up to an older guy and see how he's handled this whole situation."
