The NFL has suspended free agent quarterback Mark Sanchez for
the first four games of next season for violating the league's policy against
performance-enhancing substances.

The league announced the punishment Friday. He is eligible to participate in
offseason and preseason practices and games.

Sanchez says on Instagram he was "blind-sided" and has "never cheated or
attempted to gain a competitive advantage by using a banned performance
enhancing substance." He says he has been "subject to 73 drug tests" and "all
but one have been clean."

He attributed the result to "unknowing supplement contamination Falcons

, not the use of performance enhancing
substances."

Sanchez spent last season as Chicago's third-string quarterback. He has also
played for the New York Jets (2009-13), Philadelphia (2014-15) and Dallas
(2016).

The 31-year-old quarterback was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft
and helped lead the Jets to the AFC championship game during his first two
seasons. He has been mostly a backup since being released by New York after the
2013 season, starting just 10 games over the last four years.

Sanchez has thrown for 15,219 yards and 86 touchdowns with 86 interceptions
during his career. He did not play in a game for the Bears last season.

was a familiar feeling for Terrell Suggs and the Baltimore Ravens.The Pittsburgh
Steelers, in dramatic fashion, clinched the AFC North title for the second
consecutive season at home against their rivals. This time, Chris Boswell kicked
a 46-yard field goal with 42 seconds to play for a 39-38 comeback win against
the Ravens on Sunday night.The result was similar to a prime-time game played
last Christmas when Antonio Brown’s game-winning touchdown with nine seconds
left carried the Steelers to victory.“This one hurts,” Suggs said. “We lose to
them the same way we did last year. … We’ve got to get over it.”Baltimore has
won four of the last six games in Pittsburgh Terrelle

, but the lone losses have come in the
last two years. The Steelers, who have won eight straight since a 3-2 start,
clinched their third AFC North championship in four years.Meanwhile, the Ravens
(7-6), still in the thick of the AFC playoff race, entered playing their best
football of the season. They were riding a three-game winning streak and had won
four of five. They scored a season-high 44 points a week earlier and put up 38
more on Sunday, but it wasn’t enough against Ben Roethlisberger, Brown and the
Steelers.“We like for it to be on us instead of the offense DJ

, and defensively we feel like we let the
offense down,” Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey said.Baltimore led 38-36 when
Pittsburgh started its final possession on its own 17-yard line with 2:25 to
play. Suggs and safety Tony Jefferson combined for a sack on first down, but
Pittsburgh later converted a third-and-13 when Roethlisberger found tight end
Jesse James for 16 yards.Roethlisberger later connected with Brown for 34 yards,
eventually setting up Boswell’s winning kick for the emotional Steelers, playing
in honor of injured teammate Ryan Shazier, who sustained a serious spinal cord
injury last week at Cincinnati.Brown finished with 11 receptions for 213 yards,
while Roethlisberger was 44 of 66 for 506 yards with touchdown passes to Le’Veon
Bell and Roosevelt Nix.“(Roethlisberger) won the Super Bowl two times and played
in three, so he’s definitely a premier quarterback James

,” Suggs said. “We’ve got to be
better.”Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco went 20 of 35 for 269 yards with touchdown
tosses to Chris Moore and Patrick Ricard, along with an interception. Alex
Collins rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown, and Javorius Allen also scored
twice for the Ravens, who are vying for their seventh playoff berth in 10
seasons.“We just have to swallow this one, let it go and wait for the next three
games,” linebacker C.J. Mosley said. “We’re still in it. We just have to make
sure that we handle our business so we can try to get back ultimately for the
playoffs.”The Steelers accumulated 144 yards of total offense and scored a pair
of touchdowns on their first two series, racing to an early 14-0 lead. But the
Ravens recovered, outscoring Pittsburgh 31-6 鈥?including 17-0 in the third
quarter to build a 31-20 lead heading into the fourth.The Steelers didn’t punt
once in the first half Cheap

, but their first three drives of the second
half totaled 21 yards and all ended with punts.“We know that you can never take
your foot off the gas when you’re playing this team,” Baltimore safety Eric
Weddle said. “We played outstanding in the third quarter, and then they just get
on these runs that we can’t dig ourselves out of. You can’t do that against any
team, let alone one of the best quarterbacks to ever do it.”Roethlisberger led
the Steelers to points on their last four possessions.“We just didn’t execute in
the fourth quarter,” Suggs said. “This team is built to finish in the fourth
quarter. We can’t let it put a damper on our season.”This story has been
