Wow. LB Kendyll Pope can't practice or play with the Colts until August 2006 because he's tested positive for a banned substance at least three times. Considering he's a second-year player, it sounds like Pope's been pretty busy. The NFL's substance abuse policy is a wee bit more stringent than some of the other professional sports leagues.

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.
