Tom Brady now owns all the important NFL QB wins records

A 24-17 victory Sunday wasn’t just the 25th time Tom Brady has defeated the Jets — it also pushed the future Hall of Famer into a class of his own when it comes to winning regular season games.

The Vikings have been extremely inconsistent on offense through the first four weeks of the season, scoring over 28 points and winning by double digits in both of their wins and being held to under 10 points in each of their losses.

Case Keenum was fantastic with 369 passing yards and three passing touchdowns against Tampa Bay two weeks ago, but he managed only 219 passing yards with no touchdowns last week against Detroit. Minnesota hopes to get starter Sam Bradford back from his knee injury this week.

The Broncos’ rushing prowess combined with their rush defense allows them to control the pace of play. This benefits the Broncos, who won’t win shootouts due to quarterback Trevor Siemian’s limitations. Since a Week 2 rout of the Cowboys, the Broncos haven’t scored more than 16 points in a single game.

Jacoby Brissett has started the past five games at quarterback. Scott Tolzien started the season opener.

The Colts (2-4) will host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon.

It was a 2-1 split decision from the three judges. The dissenting judge wrote in his decision that the NFL’s investigation and disciplinary process is “arguably unfair,” according to Gabe Feldman, the director of Tulane University’s sports law program. The other two judges ruled in favor of the league because Elliott’s attorneys filed the initial lawsuit before the NFL’s appeals process was complete.

It is, essentially, a labor issue that is at the crux of this battle in the courts, not whether Elliott is innocent or guilty.sabres_033

Tom Brady reveals his favorite recipe from his $200 ‘cookbook’

“Bruce Smith was 100 percent football player,” Kelly said, per the Bills’ official web site. “He was one of those guys when people talk about being the best, ‘I want to be the best. I want to do this. I want to do that.’ Bruce Smith was all about wanting to be the best possible football player he could be. He wanted to be the best that ever played, and pretty much, as I look at it, even though he was a teammate of mine, I think he definitely is one of the best defensive ends ever to play the game.”

Smith, inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame along with late Bills owner and founder Ralph Wilson Jr. in 2009, finished his NFL career with 200 sacks — still the all-time record (171 with the Bills; 29 in Washington, where he played his final four seasons). He made 11 Pro Bowls, was selected as a First-Team All-Pro eight times (tied for the most among defensive ends in NFL history along with Reggie White), and twice won the AP Defensive Player of the Year.

Though Smith’s number has not yet been retired, no Buffalo player has worn it since he left the team in 1999. That streak will continue as long as the franchise is intact. It’s an incredibly well-deserved honor for one of the best defensive players in NFL history.

If you watched the Bengals’ playoff loss to the Steelers back in January, you probably noticed that there was some bad blood between the two teams. Or to be more accurate, there was a ton of bad blood between the two teams.

The Bengals will get a chance at revenge in September when they travel to Pittsburgh in Week 2. However, for some players that date is too far away. They want revenge now, which is why they’ve volunteered to help the other football team in their city: FC Cincinnati.

The United Soccer League team started playing this year and on Saturday, they’ll be playing host to a team from Pittsburgh.

Since every Bengals fan in Cincinnati seems to hate Pittsburgh, the soccer team decided to milk that theme: They invited Giovani Bernard, Vontaze Burfict, Jeremy Hill, Kevin Huber, Adam Jones, Dre Kirkpatrick and Domata Peko to be honorary captains for the soccer game.

The Seahawks corner had a simple reason for picking Brady at the best starting QB: He has more Lombardi Trophies than any other current starting quarterback.

“Wasn’t Kobe [Bryant] the best player in the NBA with his five rings? Tom’s got four rings. He gets the nod because of that,” Sherman said.

Of course, if that’s the benchmark, then the second-best quarterback in the NFL is either Ben Roethlisberger or Eli Manning, who each have two Super Bowl rings (I’ll take Big Ben). Then you have Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Joe Flacco, who all have one ring (I’ll take Rodgers and Wilson before the other two).

After Brady retires, whenever that happens to be, that’s when the debate of best active starting quarterback will actually get interesting.

Russell Wilson on NC State departure: Coach told me to ‘give it up’

Russell Wilson’s transfer from NC State to Wisconsin came after coach Tom O’Brien chose to go with Mike Glennon over Wilson as the Wolfpack’s starting quarterback heading into the 2011 season. This we have known for years.
