Why would these lights turn on and my car only go a few miles an hour? on 2005 Acura TL

The VSA light, engine light and a triangle w/an exclamation point in it came on and my car would not accelerate normally. Eventually stepping hard on the gas got it up to speed, until I had to stop for a red light, then it wouldn't accelerate normally again and repeat. What could this mean?

Is the engine light blinking?
No. I later started my car and just the engine light came on and stayed on solid.
