Drew Brees will play at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday for the first time since Dec. 31, 2005, when he walked off the field holding his right arm at a 90-degree angle from his side because of a shoulder injury. Brees signed with the New Orleans Saints, leading them through the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina
The 2016 season is still in its first month, and so far nothing has been able to stop the New England Patriots. It's their old buddy Rex Ryan's turn to give it a try. Ryan is back in New England (3-0) Sunday for the second time since taking over as coach of the Buffalo Bills (1-2).
When Carolina made its most recent visit to Atlanta, all the talk was about the 14-0 Panthers' try for a perfect season. Now that the Panthers are 1-2, they're hearing more questions about their imperfections as they enter Sunday's game against the Falcons. Quarterback Cam Newton says the
Of all Jacksonville's offensive issues this season, the most glaring one has been a lack of big plays. The winless Jaguars are one of just two NFL teams (the New York Jets are the other) that have yet to gain 40 yards on any play. ''We have had our opportunities with big plays,''
The previous time the Pittsburgh Steelers faced an Andy Reid-inspired offense, things didn't go so well. Perhaps the best thing the Steelers can say about the 34-3 embarrassment at the hands of the Reid disciple Doug Pederson and the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday is that it's over. '&
The Chicago Bears have not won a game this season, and they have not beaten the Detroit Lions since 2012. Chicago is 0-3 for the second time in as many seasons under coach John Fox and would match its worst start since 2000 with a loss Sunday against Detroit. The last time the Bears beat the Lions

Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks have seen the Jets' ugly game film from last week, when Ryan Fitzpatrick kept throwing the ball to the other team. Carroll's not expecting anything close to that type of slopfest on Sunday when the Seahawks (2-1) take on the Jets (1-2). ''Well,

Before players scattered for rest and relaxation during their bye week, coach Doug Pederson cautioned his team about complacency. This was supposed to be a rebuilding season for Philadelphia, especially

The Arizona Cardinals' offense is supposed to be one of the best, if not THE best, in the NFL. This might not be a good week to change that because on Sunday they face the bruising defense of the Los Angeles Rams . The Rams won in Glendale last season and the Cardinals recognize they're in
The Denver Broncos are impressed with Jameis Winston and Mike Evans, a couple of rising young stars who are transforming the identity of the once-plodding Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Winston, the first overall pick in the 2015 draft, is tied for the NFL lead with eight touchdown passes.
In the mediocre AFC South, which Houston (2-1) leads, losing its best player could bring the defending division champion back to the field - as uninspiring as the Titans, Colts and Jaguars might be. With the Texans coming off a no-show at New England, visiting Tennessee could be feeling pretty frisky
For most of the game, A.J. Green piled up more yards than the entire Miami Dolphins offense in a virtuoso performance. The Bengals receiver followed his disappointing game with a dominating one - 173 yards and a touchdown - and a Cincinnati defense that was inspired by Vontaze Burfict's return clamped
The Miami Dolphins looked good Thursday night. The shorthanded Dolphins secondary, which benched high-price trade acquisition Byron Maxwell before the game, had no answers for Green, who caught 10 passes for 173 yards and a touchdown — with most of the damage done early.

The past week has been a whirlwind of bad decisions and a second chance for Austin Seferian-Jenkins. A few hours later, he was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Just three days later, the tight end was claimed off waivers by the New York Jets, who were willing to give Seferian-Jenkins a chance at redemption
