For just the second time, which is astonishing to think, heavyweights Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady will match-up on NBC Sports in New England Sunday night at 8:20 PM.

Brady and his mates sputtered in the third quarter, while Rodgers and the Packers got back into the game, tying the score at 17 before the Pats took care of business in the fourth quarter.

Back story: In front of the media early in the day on Wednesday, ahead of the big matchup at Gillette Stadium between the Patriots and Packers, Aaron Rodgers was asked about Brady playing so well at age 41. Aaron Rodgers, but those two won't be on the field together without something really weird happening.

Rodgers and the Packers won the only other showdown, 26-21 at Green Bay, in 2014.

It was the sixth straight victory for the Patriots (7-2).

Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time and he's still proving it every week. The defense played - to limit that offense like they did to 17 points is pretty spectacular. "From pure quarterback play, I think this is definitely one you want to watch".

After all, there was so much hype and anticipation surrounding the duel between the two best quarterbacks in the game. The future is completely uncertain and I don't see the winds changing anytime soon.

Thomas, the former Denver receiver traded last week to Houston, finished with three receptions for 61 yards, but two of them were back-to-back for 31 and 18 yards on the Texans' opening touchdown drive.

Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas will make his debut with the Broncos on Sunday against the team with which he spent his first eight-plus National Football League seasons before being traded to the Texans on Tuesday.

A first-round pick out of California (24th overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft, Rodgers has been able to stay in the same spot to this point in his career.

Rivers threw touchdown passes of 12 yards to Tyrell Williams and 30 yards to Mike Williams, and the Chargers defense stymie Russell Wilson until the final minutes.

Sam Darnold faces the Dolphins for the second time, looking for a much better outing than the one he had in Week 2 when NY lost 20-12. Whitehead was flagged for a personal foul, and was also ejected from the game. The rookie threw for 334 yards - still a personal best - but also had two interceptions. @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 game was billed as the most talented QB vs. the most accomplished QB. Including all time passer rating, completion percentage and yards per attempt.
