    NFL Week 12 grades: Eagles earn an ‘A-‘ for Sunday night win; Tom Brady’s Buccaneers get a ‘D’ for OT loss

    After giving us three crazy games on Thanksgiving, the NFL might have topped itself on Sunday with several wild games that went down to the wire.  In Cleveland, Tom Brady suffered a loss for the first time in his career in a game where his team was leading by seven or more points in the final two minutes of regulation. Before Sunday, Brady had been 218-0 in those situations, but that streak is now over after Brady watched his team blow a 17-10 lead in a 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns.  In Jacksonville, the Jaguars pulled off the most surprising comeback of the day and that’s because the Jaguars…

    NFL Week 5 grades: Tom Brady’s monster day helps Buccaneers land ‘A’; Chiefs get ‘D’ for blowout loss to Bills

    Tom Brady has been in the NFL for so long that it feels like he’s accomplished everything there is to accomplish, but as it turns out, he actually did something on Sunday that he had never done before in his 21-year career.  During Tampa Bay’s dominating 45-17 win over the Dolphins, Brady threw for 411 yards and five touchdowns, marking the first time that he’s thrown for five or more touchdowns in a game where he also threw for 400 or more yards. In 21 years, Brady had thrown for five or more touchdowns a total of eight times, but he had never hit the 400-yard mark when doing so. …
