But Robert Griffin III and Co. swept their way to the NFC East crown by beating the Cowboys for the second time in Week 17. The division looks wide open again with Cowboys, ‘Skins and Eagles all saddled with three losses but still within a half-game of each other. The Redskins didn’t get their first W until Week 4 then went on bye. But winning in Dallas on Sunday night just might give them sole possession of first place by Monday morning. Elsewhere, the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints all look to go 6-0, though the Saints seem to face the toughest test with a road trip to New England. Here’s how USA TODAY Sports’ panel of NFL experts foresee Week 6 unfolding: Jarrett

Markets open in 31 mins. Boeing, ORACLE TEAM USA Partner to Recycle Composites in America’s Cup-Class Yacht – 7,000 lbs. of composites to be recycled using techniques created for 787 Dreamliner – Use and recycling of composites reduces environmental footprint of aircraft, yachts Press Release: Boeing 18 hours ago BA 119.46 SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Boeing ( BA ) and ORACLE TEAM USA, winner of the 34th America’s Cup, are collaborating to recycle 7,000 pounds (about 3,175 kilograms) of carbon fiber of USA-71, a yacht built for the America’s Cup campaign in 2003. The hull and mast of the racing yacht will be processed and repurposed, a first-of-its-kind effort for what will likely be the largest carbon structure ever recycled. Boeing and ORACLE TEAM USA, working with research partners, will utilize a technique developed to recycle composite materials from Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, which is 50 percent composite by weight and 20 percent more fuel-efficient than similarly sized aircraft. Composite materials allow a lighter, simpler structure, which increases efficiency, and do not fatigue or corrode. In yachts, composite construction also provides the ability to develop a lighter vessel that is stronger and stiffer at the same time. “The introduction of composites in yacht construction was a major step in our sport. The materials and processes have continued to evolve, allowing us to build the high-tech, high-speed AC72 catamarans raced in this year’s America’s Cup,” said Chris Sitzenstock, ORACLE TEAM USA logistics. “Now, we have the ability to work with Boeing to take the next steps in composite recycling, and to help reduce our environmental footprint.

tragedy aboard a Carnival cruise ship. A six year old boy drowned in the pool. It happened on the last leg of a four day Caribbean cruise. Police say the boy was at the pool with his 10-year-old brother when the incident occurred. Other passengers pulled the boy out and began CPR- but the child died at the scene. Police are investigating, but say the drowning appears to be accidental… North Carolina… a construction worker is electrocuted in Charlotte. It happened when a crane-operated lift hit high voltage power lines 40-feet in the air. The driver of that crane was killed instantly. Power crews de-energized the lines so firemen could bring the worker down. The site was full of workers, who are all being questioned as the investigation begins, although all signs point to this just being a tragic accident… California…
