With the New England Patriots' 26-10 win against the struggling Los Angeles Rams, Tom Brady became the winningest quarterback in National Football League history, notching the 201st win of his career. But the story of the day was Brady's 201st victory, one his teammates were excited to take part in. It seems like the time has just flown by. "We're just trying to win the game". They played the best. "And now this accomplishment - I don't even think it's close". The Rams only generated 25 yards in the first half, which would have been an impressive performance by the Patriots defense against a high school team. Next week, the resurgent Baltimore Ravens are coming to town.
Blount said he was the first teammate to say "201" to Brady.
The Sunday Night Football matchup featured a rematch of last year's NFC Divisional Game, as the Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks did battle at Centurylink Field.
"The last time I came home during the season it was to get chemotherapy", said Berry, who handed his touchdown ball to his mother in the stands. He returned in time for meetings on Saturday evening and coached the team in Sunday's 26-6 loss at Soldier Field. Not only does he have four Super Bowl victories and six AFC titles, but he has also built a 22-9 career record in the postseason. Brady finished 33-of-46 for 269 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's victory.
One team that will not struggle to make the playoffs is the Oakland Raiders, who got another strong second half effort in their win against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Malcolm Mitchell continues to grow in his first season in New England.
BIG FOOT: Rams P Johnny Hekker had a 76-yard punt in the fourth quarter.
He was later spotted walking on crutches in the tunnel underneath Gillette Stadium. You try them in practice, but there's not the speed. They won't be a winning team. Brady got the ball away, but he was walloped, and when he got up he sought out McDonald for a few words.
"So you know, we'll be realistic when we evaluate the plays", he said. I mean, he's a great player. It was incredible. I've always really looked up to him. The score was Blount's 29th on the ground as a Patriot, which ties him with BenJarvus Green-Ellis for sixth most in Patriots history.
"It's a start, it's one game", Gostkowski said via ESPN.com after the game.
"In practice you go and talk about these are the plays you're going to run, these are the defenses you can get".
Gostkowski had a ideal outing on Sunday.
Chris Long said all the proper things this week, and so did the Rams.
"Guys love going in there and hitting the quarterback". It was a great game. Goff's picks came on a pass that was tipped up by a Rams receiver and the other was a result of his arm being hit as he threw.
Belichick said after the game that it was a bad play, and one that shouldn't have happened. It was a good throw.
"We have to improve in the run game, we have to improve on third down".
