Preview 2012: One fact about each team on the schedule, Weeks 9-17

Here one fact about each team the Redskins will face in 2012. Here are the teams scheduled in Weeks 9-17. (Weeks 1-8 here)CarolinaWhat a difference a QB makes. In 2010 Carolina started Matt Moore, Jimmy Clausen, and Brian St. Pierre at quarterback and were dead last in the NFL in both points scored and yards gained from scrimmage. Enter Cam Newton last year and with essentially the same skill players on offense they improved to fifth in points and seventh in yards.ByeThe Nov. 11 bye is tied for the latest date in the season for the Redskins by weeks since 2000, when it came on Nov. 12. The bye also fell on Nov. 11 in 2001.EaglesPhilly has beaten the Redskins three times in a row by a combined score of 112-51.@ CowboysIts hard to pin the blame on whatever problems the 2011 Cowboys had on Tony Romo. He completed over 66 percent of his passes, averaged 8.0 yards per attempt and threw 31 touchdown passes and just 10 interceptions.GiantsJason Pierre-Paul became a defensive force last year, sacking opposing quarterbacks 16.5 times. And he didnt pad his sack total with a couple of big games; JPP has no more than two sacks in any one game.RavensAlthough there may be a little extra juice to this game due to the geographic proximity of the teams, there really isnt much there. They have played four times since the Browns moved from Cleveland and became the new Ravens franchise in 1996. Baltimore leads the series 3-1.BrownsThe Cleveland defense should get major kudos for being fifth in the leage in points allowed. The got little help from an offense that was 29thin yards gained and 31stin yards per rushing attempt. If they get an offense going, look out.EaglesMichael Vick missed three games due to injuries. The Eagles were 7-6 in the games he started and 1-2 when Vince Young started. Had Vick been able to stay healthy and had started those three games an had been able to go 2-1, the Eagles may well have won the division and knocked the eventual Super Bowl champion Giants out of the playoffs.CowboysFans thinking that the Redskins offensive line has problems should look at Dallas. Last year the Cowboys gave up 36 sacks. The Redskins gave up 41 but they were trying to protect the relatively immobile Rex Grossman and John Beck. The Dallas line was in front of the slippery Tony Romo, who probably saves the line from getting charged with about a sack per game with his mobility.

Zach Brown's Twitter frustration not aimed at Redskins, per source

Zach Brown's Twitter frustration not aimed at Redskins, per source

Redskins fans desperately want Zach Brown back on the roster for the 2018 season, and a Wednesday morning tweet made many Washington fans freak out when the linebacker posted, "I guess the respect level is still low..."

Don't freak out Redskin fans.

The tweet has nothing to do with contract negotiations between Brown and the Redskins, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

Instead, this is about a recent addition to the Pro Bowl.

Tuesday night, the NFL announced Falcons linebacker Deion Jones would replace injured Panthers LB Luke Kuechly in the Pro Bowl. 

Brown made the Pro Bowl in 2016 playing with the Bills, and during Pro Bowl voting earlier this season his Twitter feed had many messages supporting a second straight trip. 

Jones had a strong season for a good Falcons defense, but he finished with just 11 more tackles than Brown despite playing in three more games.

In fact, Brown was the leading tackler in the NFL before missing the final three games of the season with a litany of injuries. Remarkably, Brown kept the NFL tackle lead after he missed Week 15, though the rest of the leauge caught up to him by Week 16. Playing in only 13 games, Brown still finished ninth in the NFL in tackles, and also added 2.5 sacks.

Josh Norman wears a kilt during Scotland trip and it's hilarious (VIDEO)

Josh Norman traveled to Scotland as part of an NFL promotional trip, and in turn, Josh Norman wore a kilt. 

It's awesome. 

Norman, along with Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders, decided to give the traditional Scottish formal attire a try, and the results were spectacular.

Norman even broke out in a tradional Scottish jig, sending the folks in the Glasgow audience into a frenzy.

Norman likes to have fun, and though the 2017 season didn't provide him many opportunities to do so, he's taking advantage while overseas. After Glasgow, Norman and the NFL crew went to Manchester, England, where he caught up with old friend and Manchester United star Paul Pogba for a jersey exchange.

Remember, Pogba hung out with the Redskins when the team played in London in 2016, and joined the Redskins Extra crew after the game. 

Plenty more cool pictures and videos from Norman's trip available via @NFLUK.
