In April, three rounds after they made Robert Griffin III the second pick in the draft, the Washington Redskins selected Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins. A lot of people scratched their heads at that. Why would a team with plenty of holes to fill use another pick on a quarterback? Sunday, that move looked brilliant. With Griffin sidelined by a stomach-turning right knee injury, Cousins came off the bench to erase an eight-point deficit in the final minute, setting up a 31-28 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens that was clinched by Kai Forbath's 34-yard field goal.

Jiyai Shin made a two-putt par on the ninth playoff hole , beating Paula Creamer  to win the Kingsmill Championship at Williamsburg, Va., and end the longest playoff between two players in LPGA  Tour history. One caveat: The playoff was spread over two days. Shin and Creamer played the 18th hole eight times Sunday in an attempt to break the tie before darkness forced a suspension. They resumed Monday morning and settled it on the first hole they played: the par-four 6th. "We were so hungry for the win," Shin said.

Peyton Manning is known for being one the NFL's foremost technicians, a player who is constantly refining and tinkering with his game. As a result, the new Denver Broncos quarterback is the league's only four-time most valuable player. In a conference call with the media Wednesday, NBC's Tony Dungy, formerly coach of the Manning-led Colts, gave an interesting example of Peyton's dedication to improving and helping the players around him improve. "We drafted Anthony Gonzalez in Indianapolis, and Peyton Manning went twice a week to Columbus and threw with him for an hour-and-a-half while he was still in school," Dungy said of the Ohio State receiver selected with the 32nd pick of the 2007 draft.

It was a tough weekend for Arkansas  football, as the Razorbacks fell from No. 8 out of the top 25 following a shocking overtime loss to Louisiana Monroe. Not everyone is giving up on the Hogs, though, as this heart-felt video  is sure to pig-nose inspire the school as it prepares to host No.1 Alabama this week. Did Saturday's loss kill Arkansas' national title dreams? Never! No league rallies around its own like the Southeastern Conference. Should Arkansas somehow rally to win the rest of its games, you can rest assured the SEC will mount a convincing defense.

If the Tennessee Titans hope to put something in the left-hand column -- namely their first victory of the season -- they had better do something about the right arm of Peyton Manning. Manning, whose Indianapolis Colts play at Tennessee tonight, is the hottest quarterback in football. He's coming off four consecutive 300-yard passing performances and has a good chance of becoming the third player in NFL history -- along with Kurt Warner and Steve Young -- to tear off five in a row. It's not as if the Titans are doing much to stop opposing passers.

Peyton Manning threw four touchdown passes to power the Indianapolis Colts past Kurt Warner and the turnover-plagued Arizona Cardinals, 31-10, Sunday night. Manning completed 24 of 35 passes for 379 yards with one interception. Warner, under severe pressure much of the game, was 30 for 52 for 332 yards and one touchdown but had two passes intercepted. Indianapolis safety Antoine Bethea recovered a fumble at the five to stop one Arizona drive and intercepted a deflected pass in the end zone to thwart another.

Vincent Jackson is now free to move about the country. Or he will be as soon as the NFL's free-agency period starts on March 13. Unlike a year ago, the San Diego Chargers decided not to use the franchise tag on their top wide receiver. Such a move would have counted more than $13 million against the salary cap, a number General Manager A.J. Smith decided the team just couldn't afford this year. Still, Smith said the Chargers are hoping to retain the services of the man who led the team in receiving yards in three of the last four seasons and in touchdown receptions in two of the last three seasons.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — When he was quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning was surrounded by standout receivers — sure-handed players such as Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark and Pierre Garcon. But how much of that was Manning turning those players into stars with his pinpoint targeting? "I think it was a combination," said John Elway, Denver's executive vice president of football operations. "They got so good because of the years that they had together and the feel that they had in certain situations.
