First, an AFC North division battle between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, followed by a primetime matchup between the two best quarterbacks in football - Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. He has, after all, won five titles, which is more than any other signal-caller has been able to accomplish (even though Joe Montana was 4-0 in Super Bowls).

Yet when the Patriots host the Packers on Sunday night, it will mark just the second time that the future Hall of Famers have squared off as starting quarterbacks. Four years later, Brady and Rodgers meet again, this time at Gillette Stadium.

"Yeah, well, I've never played against Tom Brady", Patriots coach Bill Belichick said abruptly when asked who was better.

Until this game, the Packers have had Aaron Rodgers and very few injuries. Tied in the fourth quarter, New England found a way to pull away and move to 7-2 on the season. It looked like we had him on a lot of plays, to be honest with you.

Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time and he's still proving it every week.

"I know we can't turn it over, I know we're going to have to possess the ball". Perkins is coming off of a 217-yard passing and 112-yard rushing performance in Virginia's win against North Carolina. The Packers did find their run offense against the Rams' top-ranked defense - running back Aaron Jones had 86 yards and a touchdown. Michel says he'd play on one leg for the Patriots, but maybe that wouldn't be the most productive.

Decisions like Titans coach Mike Vrabel made in London can kill a season. Oh, let's not forget about Brady eclipsing 500 career passing touchdowns this season. If that's the case, it won't be much different from what Adams has faced all year. The rookie threw for 334 yards - still a personal best - but also had two interceptions. Whitehead was flagged for a personal foul, and was also ejected from the game. @Sports roundup body:McCaffrey had 17 carries for 79 yards and five catches for 78 yards and turned in the play of the game when he leaped over a defender after a reception in the flat and kept going, turning it into a 32-yard gain.

The Vikings wide receiver is tied with former Lions star Calvin Johnson (2012) with eight straight games of 100 or more yards receiving, the longest streak in National Football League history.

PANTHERS 42, BUCCANEERS 28: In Charlotte, North Carolina, Cam Newton completed 19 of 25 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns, and Christian McCaffrey racked up 157 yards from scrimmage and scored twice to lead Carolina.
