Ahmad Bradshaw had a superb outing Sunday night, along with pretty much everyone else in blue, but the pressure's now on Bradshaw to continue to roll—just as he did late last season—and, most importantly, to stay healthy.

That's because Andre Brown's season is over after the breakout back literally broke a leg in Sunday's victory over Green Bay. 

"I feel bad for Andre. He's my little brother. It was heartbreaking just to see him go down," Bradshaw said, according to Hank Gola of the New York Daily News. "It's a hard time for him but hopefully he can come back and maybe catch us in the playoffs."

This, of course, presents an opportunity to rookie first-round pick David Wilson, whom the team has yet to trust due to concerns that he's not yet a good enough blocker for steady reps. We'll see if Wilson's work load increases in Week 13 in Washington.

On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division...

Dallas Cowboys

Andre Holmes, who was the subject of so much preseason hype in Dallas, has been released, per the Dallas Morning News.

Nick Eatmon of CBS Sports is one of many reporting that Bruce Carter could be headed to the injured reserve.

New York Giants

From Newsday's Tom Rock: Martellus Bennett caught a fan who fell over a railing after Sunday night's game.

Also from Rock: Kenny Phillips came down with another injury Sunday but says he could have returned had he been needed.

Philadelphia Eagles

CSN Philly's Reuben Frank claims this Eagles' secondary could be one of the worst in NFL history.

Also from Frank: Michael Vick has entered a new phase of the concussion recovery process and could be available next week.

Washington Redskins

From Rich Campbell of the Washington Times: Sure, the Giants won Sunday, but Green Bay, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Minnesota and New Orleans all lost, increasing Washington's chances of sneaking into the playoffs with a wild-card spot.

David Sheinin of the Washington Post spent some time with Robert Griffin III as he spent Thanksgiving weekend at home.
