Buffalo receiver Stevie Johnson has been able to experience the thrill of beating AFC East rival New England just once in the 10 times the two teams have played since he was drafted by the Bills in 2008. But have no fear, Bills fans. Johnson has come up with a solution to the team's woes against those pesky Patriots. Play better? Work harder? Find a quarterback? Nah.

Stevie Johnson and the rest of the Buffalo Bills hadn't been in Jacksonville long Saturday when he received some devastating news. His 48-year-old mother - whose name, Rhonda, is tattooed in script across his right forearm - had died unexpectedly in Northern California. The sixth-year player had a long talk with Coach Doug Marrone and cornerback Ron Brooks that night before deciding the best thing to do for himself was to stay in Florida and play against the Jaguars the next day with the rest of his teammates.

Stevie Johnston finds himself where Shane Mosley was a year ago. "Waiting on a big pay day," Johnston said. The difference for the 5-foot-5 Johnston is that he's a true lightweight, incapable of moving beyond the division to land the major showdown that can propel the 27-year-old from Denver into the best pound-for-pound argument. "I just have to wait for my turn," said Johnston, the World Boxing Council lightweight champion.

The widow of professional wrestler Owen Hart has come to a settlement with World Wrestling Entertainment in her lawsuit over royalties and the use of her husband's image. Martha Hart announced the settlement Wednesday, and the WWE confirmed the news, although neither side revealed any details of the deal.

Hart, 34, was a member of a family full of professional wrestlers, including his father, Stu, six brothers and four brothers-in-law.

Robert Griffin III has had his share of magical moments throughout his NFL career -- all 12 games of it. Even when RG3 makes a mistake it can still turn into something positive for the Washington Redskins. Take a play from the first quarter of the Redskins' 17-16 win over the New York Giants on Monday night. The quarterback picked up 12 yards on a running play deep in Giants territory but had the ball stripped by Stevie Johnson on the way down. Normally that would be disastrous, a scoring opportunity down the drain.
