Bill Belichick joked about Tom Brady not reaching 1,000 rushing yards

A Brady vs Rodgers matchup sparks the debate about which is the best quarterback to play the game. 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). Colin Cowherd says the constant comparisons between the two fall short of the reality that Tom Brady is in a completely different class than Aaron Rodgers.

Brady, who entered the game at 997 career rushing yards, failed to cross the threshold in Sunday night's win over the Packers.

"It's really day-to-day with him", Brady said.

"What he's done as a quarterback, I think it is inspiring even for me", Brady said. In a game against Rodgers, Brady not only didn't have to pull it out with last-minute heroics, he didn't have to play insane good to win. That's because all of the kneeldowns Brady has taken - either before halftime or to ice out victories late in the fourth quarter - have substantially cut into his career yardage.

In the build up to the Week 9 game Brady insists he was looking forward to the encounter and revealed Rodgers actually motivates him to play better.

It might be tougher sledding this week, though, as the Steelers face a Ravens defense that ranks No. 1 overall in the NFL and is allowing a league-low 17.1 points and 293.8 yards per game. Perkins is coming off of a 217-yard passing and 112-yard rushing performance in Virginia's win against North Carolina. "We're hurting ourselves with negative yardage plays and missed throws and turnovers at the wrong time, not being on the same page too many times", Rodgers said. It took four years, but it's finally here again and it is going to be a good one.

This guy can not coach this team to do anything special this season.

Starting with Brady - the California kid who was drafted 199 of the 2000 National Football League draft. Setting up that touchdown was a double pass from Edelman to White which almost went the distance, going 37 yards down the left sideline to give the Patriots first and goal at the 2.

NBC's national overnight rating of 15.6 is the best overnight rating for a primetime show on any network since March 2018 and is also up 63 percent from last year's Week 9 SNF game between Oakland and Miami.

On the following drive, Brady drove the Patriots 74 yards to the Packer 1-yard line. Last week, it looked like the Packers were going to end the Los Angeles Rams' undefeated season, until running back Ty Montgomery fumbled a kickoff, giving the Rams the ball and basically ending the game.

The game was billed as the most talented QB vs. the most accomplished QB. It was the first score of his career, having previously only completed one pass in his career on two attempts.
