— Just after dawn Tuesday, law enforcement officers began yanking hundreds of trucks off the Capital Beltway and funneling them to an inspection lot a long touchdown pass from FedEx Field. The truck-safety dragnet pulled over 420 rigs and resulted in 12 drivers and 87 vehicles being taken off the road. Offenses ranged from falsified log books and drivers spending too many hours behind the wheel to bad tires and defective brakes. "Within an hour, drivers from Maine to Florida will know we're out here," said State Police Capt.

For a few tantalizing moments, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III looked like his old self again in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at FedEx Field. Then his star-crossed career came unraveled again. He was in the process of making one of the signature acrobatic plays that characterized his terrific 2012 season when he landed wrong on his left ankle and tumbled out of bounds in obvious agony. It appeared that he suffered a dislocation and he was carted off the field in apparent tears.

Navy's game against Notre Dame on Nov. 1 2014 will be played at FedEx Field in Landover, the school announced today. The Midshipmen and Fighting Irish last met at Fed Ex Field in 1998. Navy's last game at the Washington Redskins' stadium was the 2011 Army-Navy game - a 27-21 victory for the Mids. “FedEx Field did a fine job of hosting the Army-Navy game and we are looking forward to another sold out event in 2014,” Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said in a news release.

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank is on the board and Gov. Martin O'Malley offered his preliminary backing, but Maryland's role in a bid to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics to the Washington region remained largely undefined. The nonprofit Washington 2024 unveiled a website and announced its board Thursday, but Plank was its only Baltimore-area member, and Maryland's participation is only nominally suggested in the newly released promotional material. Maryland appears to be a secondary partner in this effort, but likely would host multiple events if the bid is successful and be asked to make a significant financial contribution.

The soccer term "friendly" can be a misnomer, depending on the teams playing the match and the circumstances surrounding it. For a U.S. side trying to reinvent itself after a disappointing performance in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa while learning a new style under former German national coach Jurgen Klinsmann, Wednesday's much-anticipated 8 p.m. exhibition against Brazil at FedEx Field could be another step forward. Or a big step back. Coming off a 5-1 win over Scotland last Saturday night in Jacksonville, Fla., and with the memory of a 1-0 win in Italy in February not completely faded, the Americans will try to show they belong on the same field with one of the top teams in the world - albeit one going though an even more massive overhaul.

COWBOYS @REDSKINS Sunday, 8:20p.m. TV: Chs. 11, 4 Radio: 980AM Line: Redskins by 3 The Washington Redskins should know by the time they take the field Sunday night at FedEx Field to face the Dallas Cowboys whether the game will be a playoffs-or-bust deal for them. The Redskins and Cowboys will be playing with the NFC East title at stake. The NFL announced Sunday night that the game was being moved to 8:20 p.m. under the sport's flexible-scheduling arrangement with NBC. So while there is a scenario in which the Redskins could reach the NFC playoffs as a wild-card team even if they lose to the Cowboys, it already will have played out before the prime-time game in Landover.

A year after the idea was first broached, the Ravens and Washington Redskins will promote their geographic rivalry with a controlled scrimmage at FedEx Field on July 28. That's just five days after the playoff-hopeful Ravens report to training camp this summer, and nine days after the NFC favorite Redskins report to camp. "I talked to Norv [Redskins coach Norv Turner] last year about trying to get together in some type of scrimmage format," Ravens coach Brian Billick said yesterday. "But given the predisposition of their former ownership toward Baltimore -- us being here -- it just made it prohibitive."

Maryland and Notre Dame have agreed to meet in football at FedEx Field in 2011 in what Maryland's athletic director calls "a statement game." It will be just the second football game between the schools. The Terps, then ranked No. 21, lost, 22-0, to the Fighting Irish at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., to open the 2002 season - Ralph Friedgen's second as coach in College Park. Maryland will not have to sacrifice a home game, even though FedEx Field - the Landover home of the Washington Redskins - is only about 12 miles from campus.

Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow confirmed Wednesday night that the school is in negotiations with Notre Dame for a 2011 game at FedEx Field in Landover. "We are in discussions with them," Yow wrote in an e-mail to The Baltimore Sun. "I really can't say more without compromising the negotiations." It would mark only the second time the football programs have met. The Terps, then ranked No. 21, lost, 22-0, to the Fighting Irish at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., to open the 2002 season - Ralph Friedgen's second in College Park and Tyrone Willingham's first in South Bend, Ind. Friedgen will be going into his 10th season in 2010 while Notre Dame recently hired Brian Kelly away from Cincinnati to replace Charlie Weis.

LANDOVER -  As the Spanish national soccer team headed into its final warm-up game before leaving for Brazil, and with one last chance to work out any kinks before setting out to defend its World Cup crown, manager Vicente del Bosque wanted his team to show him something. "The most important thing for us," del Bosque said at his news conference Friday, "is that the 23 players that we have are peaking at the right time for the World Cup. " Del Bosque's side did, in the end, secure a 2-0 win Saturday over El Salvador before an announced 53,267 at FedEx Field.
