The Philadelphia Eagles have announced they will not play Terrell Owens Sunday night against the Washington Redskins. Whether he'll be listed as suspended or deactivated, and whether he'll be paid for the game, is not clear. But Owens is out, and the Eagles say it has nothing to do with his injury and everything to do with his mouth. Our colleague Jay Glazer reports the decision was made after the Eagles spoke with the league office on Friday with regards to their options after Owens bashed the team.

Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
