The idea of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell calling Tom Brady for breaking the record of wins by a starting quarterback drew a hearty laugh from the New England Patriots signal caller.

Jeff Fisher: ‘We’re on a record setting pace with our punt team’

With two more losses, Jeff Fisher will make NFL history. It’s going to happen this year, or I’ll eat my hat. So how in the world does Jeff Fisher still have a job with the 4-8 Los Angeles Rams? Well, perhaps it’s because he can keep us endlessly entertained with magic tricks on the sidelines to distract us from all the losing (watch here). Or perhaps it’s because of gems...

Brady reveals most meaningful win of his NFL career

Tom Brady earned his NFL record 201st career win Sunday as the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams at Gillette Stadium.

Bill Belichick has high praise for Jared Goff

The Patriots are favored by nearly two touchdowns in their upcoming game against the Rams, but the team’s coaching staff isn’t taking its opponent lightly. New England’s only two losses this season have come in Foxboro, so it’s understandable that the team is being cautious heading into Sunday’s game. The Rams, though, got blown out in New Orleans last week, 49-21, but...
