Ryan Kerrigan leads the NFL with four sacks, which is impressive because he didn't have any last week. (Playing the Jaguars is good for the soul and for the stats; Washington racked up 10 sacks of poor Chad Henne.) On his first and fourth of the afternoon, Kerrigan went into a squatting, flexing celebration that looked familiar to anyone who grew up watching the WWF.


Afterward, Kerrigan explained that his teammate has been bugging him for a while to break out that move.

"[Linebacker] Will Compton has been in my ear for a while to do the Shawn Michaels from HBK. All he's been saying is, 'Do the HBK.' Finally, I did right by him and hit the HBK a couple of times. The second and third time, I didn't do it. I got some hell from him. After, he said to me, 'Why didn't you do it? You need to trademark it!' I told him, 'Well, I can't trademark it, it's HBK.' But that's where it came from. You can thank Will Compton."
