Before the NFL season, Sports Illustrated called Steelers linebacker Joey Porter "the most feared man in the NFL." And, unfortunately, Dog & Kennel can say Porter's dogs are the most feared in the NFL. Porter could face charges after two of his dogs - a pit bull and a mastiff - got loose from his home and killed a miniature horse at a nearby farm. The 6-year-old American miniature horse was 291/2 inches tall, probably smaller than the two dogs. The Wexford, Pa., police knew the dogs belonged to Porter because they escaped once before but did not cause problems. Porter, who lives in Pine Township, north of Pittsburgh, issued a statement: "I am saddened to learn that my dogs escaped from my yard and attacked and killed a horse. It was an accident, and I am not sure how the dogs escaped."

Ryan LongwelL, Vikings kicker who passed for a tying touchdown on a fake field goal against Carolina on Sunday:
