Teams are beginning to calculate their playoff chances, for better or worse.

Doctors were running tests on the tendon as a "formality,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter wrote on Twitter.

The team is focusing on keeping its players and employees and their families safe.

Redskins to sign veteran quarterback Mark Sanchez

Washington needed a backup for Colt McCoy, who is replacing the injured Alex Smith.

A look at the good and bad from Sunday's costly defeat against the Texans.

  • Perspective

Alex Smith wasn’t carrying the Redskins. Colt McCoy doesn’t have to either.

Given the way Washington plays, the team will miss the person more than the numbers with the shift from Smith to McCoy.

He probably should brush up on the NFL rule book.

The choicest fantasy advice from every corner of the Internet.

The defending champs emerge from their bye at 4-4. But the NFC East is there for the taking, if only they can recapture last season’s mojo.

Right tackles don't make eight figures or get the star treatment. But as the NFL evolves, they matter more and more.

That's pretty weird.

Pittsburgh hammered Carolina for its fifth straight win Thursday night, but with James Conner being evaluated for a concussion, the Steelers could use a back of Bell's magnitude.

The second-grader did not hold back in his criticism, taking a shot at Coach Jason Garrett and asserting, "The cheerleaders are better than the team this year."

Zack Golditch, an offensive lineman, was in the theater next to where the shooting took place when a bullet tore through the wall and struck him in the neck.

The veteran running back was set to return on Sunday night.

Through 12 games spanning preseason and the regular season, the team is undefeated in the coin toss. Which is nice.

Kansas City's opponent, Arizona, is scoring slightly more than a point per possession, making it the NFL's second-worst offense.

The wide receiver earned a reckless-driving charge after police pulled him over in his Porsche.
