The Panthers (11-3) own a two-game lead in the NFC South over Tampa Bay and Atlanta with two games remaining.

By Jarrett Bell LANDOVER, Md. -- If history is any indication, the Pittsburgh Steelers' smash-mouth 23-6 victory against the Washington Redskins on Monday night is a good omen for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama and bad news for John McCain. In all but one of 17 presidential elections dating to 1940, a Redskins defeat in their final home game before the election has foreshadowed a loss by the incumbent party in the election. Whether that holds up today is unclear, but one...

By Associated Press IRVING, Texas -- Jim Zorn will go down in history as the only Washington Redskins coach never to lose a regular-season game at Texas Stadium. Better yet, the Redskins are going into October as a legitimate contender in the NFC East. Jason Campbell threw two touchdown passes and Clinton Portis ran for 121 yards, leading Washington to a 26-24 victory Sunday that gave the Dallas Cowboys their first loss and made the toughest division in the NFL even more interesting....

More importantly to the Steelers, it was a first title for running back...
