The outstanding website Pro Football Focus put together its top 101 of 2011 list and there were two members of the Redskins on it. That doesnt seem like many but remember that if the top 101 was distributed evenly throughout the league each team would get three players on it with five spots left over.The part that Redskins fans might find disappointing is the fact that the two who made the list barely made it. London Fletcher checked in at No. 96 and Brian Orakpo was right behind him at No. 97.Although Orakpos performance in 2011 was something of a disappointment in the eyes of some, the PFF crew did not have a problem with it. His overall grade was 26, which was fifth out of all 3-4 outside linebackers. And he had 59 combined sacks, hits, and hurries.And they are in awe of Fletchers ability to keep rolling at the age of 36 as they pointed out strengths in both run stuffing and in pass coverage. A complete year for a complete player, they conclude.
In a thriller in Foxboro, the Patriots handed Kansas City its first loss of the season.
It wasn't pretty but the Rams slipped past the Broncos to remain the lone unbeaten in the NFL.
Remember when the Lions beat New England on Sunday Night Football and folks were ready to bury the Patriots? Yeah... how did that 'hot take' work out?
Will the real Redskins please stand up? A win over the Panthers moved the Skins up three spots. Give the Redskins this, they are consistently unpredictable.
The Ravens are on the rise and Marcus Mariota is happy the Titans won't have to play Baltimore again.

So the Cowboys have an offense now? Or does Jacksonville not have an elite defense anymore?
And the Bears let Brock Osweiler throw for 380 yards. Yes. You read that correct. 380 yards.
How far will the Bears drop because of that dreadful defensive performance?
The Kerrigan family is about to make a big-time addition to its roster.
