NFL powers, and underdogs, rain on playoff aspirants' parade

Added Marshall with a laugh: "He looked at me and said, 'You're disgusting.'"

Record day

•Colts receiver Reggie Wayne has made at least two catches in 59 consecutive games, a league record. Last week, he tied the record held by Cris Carter.

•Rookie quarterbacks have won 26 starts this season, the most since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Rookie winners Sunday were Indianapolis' Andrew Luck, Miami's Ryan Tannehill and Cleveland's Brandon Weeden.

•St. Louis cornerback Janoris Jenkins returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the Rams' 31-17 victory at Arizona. Jenkins is the fourth rookie in NFL history — and the first in the modern era — to score on two interceptions in the same game. The others were Hoot Flanagan in 1925, Dan Sandifer in 1948 and Bobby Franklin in 1960.

•Seattle's Leon Washington returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown against Miami, pushing his career total to eight kickoff-return scores. That's tied with Cleveland's Josh Cribbs for the most in NFL history.

Storm clouds

The Seahawks have an excellent secondary, but that could be in jeopardy. According to an NFL.com report, cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are facing four-game suspensions for violating the league's policy against performance-enhancing drugs. The report cites "someone with knowledge of the ruling" and says the players plan to appeal.
