In a game that didn't require much of him, Brady completed 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 149 yards and a touchdown, providing an efficient performance while letting the New England defense do most of the heavy lifting in a blowout of the Vikings. Brady's 149th win leaves him trailing only Brett Favre and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning for the most victories in NFL history.

The Vikings give Roger Goodell a golden opportunity on Monday by announcing that they have reinstated Adrian Peterson. Goodell could earn back a little of the public's trust by suspending the running back for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera had a change of heart Sunday, benching defensive end Greg Hardy before the team's 24-7 win against the Detroit Lions. Rivera defended his late decision to make Hardy inactive by saying the "climate has changed" in the NFL and the team "has to get this right."
After a Week 2 in which the most dominant defense in recent history got exposed by the likes of Philip Rivers and both the Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans count themselves among the six undefeated teams to come out of the afternoon slate of games, the Red Zone Channel provided plenty of surprises on Sunday. We still have a lot of questions about the future of this NFL season, but here are five things we're paying attention to coming out of Sunday's first 13 games.
In his first ever NFL start, he wasn't flashy but no one can say the one-time undrafted free agent quarterback Austin Davis of the St. Louis Rams was not efficient.

Davis went undrafted in 2012 after breaking a slew of Brett Favre's records at Southern Miss. He was viewed as a system quarterback with questionable arm strength and size limitations.

It's not often that the Patriots and Vikings meet, as evidenced by this Sunday's clash being just the third game between the two teams in the last decade. The first came in Week 8 of the 2006 season, a forgettable 31-7 trouncing by Tom Brady and Co.
You'll have to reach deep into your pockets to get into TCF Bank Stadium and watch the Minnesota Vikings take on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Sunday's home opener. Tickets for the sold-out game are selling on the secondary market for an average of $159 each, according to Seat Geek, a New York-based search engine that monitors ticket listings from major secondary ticket websites like That makes the home opener the team's most expensive by far since 2009, when Brett Favre joined the Vikings.
