  • Postgame celebration proves 'ShowStopper' Ryan Kerrigan is actually a 'Stone Cold' Guy

    Ryan Kerrigna is clear a student of nostalgic professional wrestling. The superstar Redskins defense end is known for his "showstopper" sack celebration, an homage to wrestling icon "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels. But following the Redskins' Week 6 win over the 49ers, it became evident that Kerrigan had more than one finisher in his repotoire. As he exited the field following the 26-24 win, Kerrigan tapped in to his inner "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. Steve Austin's libratry of quotes is as prolific as Ric Flair's penchant for stylin' and profilin', and Kerrigan chose a hefty bit to break out. Here's the original clip. It's a beauty.

  • Early Week 7 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Darren McFadden, John Brown, Samaje Perine and Josh McCown the ones to chase

    It's beginning to feel like Fantasy owners are playing two games every week: the one in their Fantasy leagues, and the one against the evil, dreaded injury bug. Every professional athlete will tell you that injuries are part of the game, and that's absolutely the case in pro football, but it feels like every week this year we've lost at least one bona fide superstar. Week 1 was David Johnson , last week was Odell Beckham , and this week was Aaron Rodgers. MAKE IT STOP!!!! Fine, it's not going to stop, no matter how much I scream. And all of this underscores the importance of roster depth. Not only should Fantasy owners aim for reliable starters from week to week, but also a good pool of players

FRISCO, Texas -- As far as bye weeks go, the Dallas Cowboys' could gone better. On Thursday afternoon, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the injunction that was allowing Ezekiel Elliott to play be vacated. Unless there are more legal maneuverings, the next time he will carry the ball in a game will be Nov. 30 against the Washington Redskins. That doesn't help a team with a 2-3 record
  • Actors Taylor Kitsch and Josh Brolin hit the Redskins game — and the White House

    Hey, isn’t that . . . actors Taylor Kitsch and Josh Brolin at the Redskins game on Sunday afternoon against the San Francisco 49ers? Kitsch is known for his role on “Friday Night Lights,” so it wasn’t a shock to see him on the gridiron — but at the game at FedEx Field, he was wearing a home-team burgundy-and-gold jersey, not Panthers’ blue. Brolin went dressier in a sport coat and button-down. The pair are in town to promote their new firefighter-drama movie, “Only the Brave,” and their on-field moves were perfectly on-message: They honored local first responders. Brolin’s visit to Washington apparently included a bit of sightseeing, as well. Earlier in the day, he posted a pic to Instagram of

One of the most highly anticipated matchups of Week 6 will take place in MetLife Stadium on Sunday and it involves the tenants not named the New York Giants. There’s a ton on the line for the New York Jets — yes, those New York Jets — as they play the New England Patriots in a big AFC East battle. The division wasn’t supposed to look like this, but the Patriots have been hobbled by injury, leaving room for the Jets and the Buffalo Bills, who have a bye this week, to fight it out in a division that usually belongs to the Pats.
