Let the rebuilding begin. The Eagles moved DeSean Jackson to IR today, and waived Jason Babin. They told the press they want a chance to get playing time for youngers players. (Hi, Vinny Curry.) Babin is a disappointment this year with only 5.5 sacks, but this guy is still a very good pass rusher. Despite his expensive contract, I would have to think a team would be willing to pick him up on waivers and stick him in the lineup on passing downs.

Peter King looks at the tight race for the second NFC wild card spot, the league's move to ban all low blocks, and Ray Rice's amazing fourth-and-29.

Why is this Giants slump different from all other slumps? Because this one is powered by a massive personal slump for Eli Manning, three straight games below 0 DYAR. That's almost unheard of for a quarterback of his quality, and a good reason to believe the Giants can bounce back.

Hey, New England: The 49ers will take your vicious shellacking of an overrated Colts team and raise you one even more vicious shellacking of a quality Bears team.

I wrote for the Slate/Deadspin roundtable again this week about why the Rob Gronkowski injury doesn't qualify as "karmic justice." If you are on the extra point team, you are on the extra point team, period, and a lot of top tight ends (like Jimmy Graham and Jason Witten) are on the extra point team. As for "running up the score," the Patriots are no different from any other team. Leaving in your starters that late may not be wise, but it is neither abnormal nor evil.

Maybe the difference between Jay Cutler and Jason Campbell isn't that big. It certainly pales in comparison to the difference between Alex Smith under pressure and Alex Smith not under pressure. Also, in Cover Watch: Arizona's offense may suck, but the defense is still good.

Denver is back on top, Chicago's defense continues to soar, and Dallas is secretly hot. Plus: Is the Rookie of the Year actually an undrafted free agent in Baltimore?

Going through all those penalties from the Sunday Buffalo at New England game to see how much the officials did or did not screw the Bills. (Click to read more.)
