It was a bit shocking last week when Miami tackle Jonathan Martin left the team and was put on the non-football injury list for "emotional reasons." But we're starting to get some more information on what's going on in the Miami locker room and it seems to take the usual rookie hazing to a new (and surprisingly financial) level. Dolphins veterans are apparently pressuring some rookies into paying for meals until they've exhausted their $390,000 rookie salaries.

Justin Blackmon just can't get his act together, and the Jacksonville Jaguars just can't catch a break. Blackmon has been suspended eight games (i.e. the rest of the year) for blowing the NFL substance abuse policy, again. He's allowed to apply for reinstatement in 2014. This doesn't appear to be about performance-enhancing drugs. The guy needs rehab. Remember when Blackmon came out and he was supposed to be "Dez Bryant, but with a better head on his shoulders?"

The Broncos stay on top, the Bengals climb up to fifth, and the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs drop to tenth. No, that isn't a misprint. Plus: Tom Brady and the biggest QB declines ever.

Why did the last undefeated team in the NFL actually drop a spot to fourth in this week's DVOA ratings? Because our stats aren't just about wins and losses, but about who you play and how you play 'em.

Football Outsiders' advanced efficiency ratings stay fairly stable after Week 6, except for Minnesota and the Washington special teams. Plus: Is this year's biggest NFL circus also the best 0-5 team ever?
