The rematch of the Super Bowl with an historic finish doesn’t have much of a
super look right now.

The Patriots are 4-2 and have not cruised in any game Nick Boyle
, mainly because of a leaky defense. The Falcons are 3-2 and
easily could have one win.

Still, NBC must be salivating to have Tom Brady vs. Matt Ryan, particularly
with both teams vulnerable when they don’t have the ball.

And, of course, each side has memories – joyful and painful – of New
England’s rally from a 25-point second-half hole to win the championship in

”Well, I mean those games, they live with you the rest of your life – the
wins and the losses,” Brady says. ”I mean, I think there’s obviously 18 years
for me. … There’s probably some games early in my career in the middle of
October that I don’t really remember that well Terrance
West Jersey
, but I would say the Super Bowl ones you always
remember pretty well.

”I mean, there was a lot on the line. You know, it’s just the reality of it.
As players, you hope you’re in that position. You’d rather be in that game than
not be in that game, win or lose. It’s great to win and it stinks to lose, but
that’s playing sports.”

Atlanta comes off blowing a 17-point lead and losing at home to Miami. New
England was down 14-0 at the Jets before rallying to win.

”We obviously haven’t played as well as we’re capable of through five games,”
Ryan says. ”But we’re certainly close. We’ve done a lot of really good things at

The weekend began with the Oakland Raiders’ 31-30 comeback victory over the
visiting Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night.

Derek Carr threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree on the final
play after the game was extended by two straight defensive holding calls.

With their season on the line following the recent slump, Carr led an 85-yard
touchdown drive in the final 2:25 to give the Raiders (3-4) the thrilling
comeback win that snapped a four-game losing streak.

Carr finished 29 for 52 for 417 yards and three touchdowns, with Amari Cooper
catching 11 passes for 210 yards and two of the scores.

The Chiefs (5-2) lost consecutive games for the first time since Oct.
11-18 Mike
Wallace Jersey
, 2015, and had their 12-game winning streak in the
AFC West snapped.

Off this week are Houston and Detroit, both 3-3.

Washington (3-2) at Philadelphia (5-1), Monday night

For the NFC East lead. Yes, you hard that correctly.

The Eagles have been a revelation this season, with the best record in the
NFC. They already have a win at Washington and bring the top-ranked rush defense
into this prime-timer.

But, coincidentally, the Redskins have more road wins (42) vs. the Eagles
than any other opponent. They are getting strong performances from QB Kirk
Cousins and an underrated defense led by Ryan Kerrigan.

Philly already is 2-0 in the division and can take solid control with a

Denver (3-2) at Los Angeles Chargers (2-4)

After four losses, most of them in close decisions Eric Weddle
, the Chargers have won two straight. With the Dodgers still
playing, it’s unlikely many Angelenos will notice if the Bolts win again.

Denver, which beat LA in the opener, has the NFL’s top-ranked defense. The
Broncos have won 11 of the past 13 meetings with the Chargers.

Of note: Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has his second meeting with
the Chargers since getting fired as their coach. New Chargers head coach Anthony
Lynn won two Super Bowls as a Broncos running back and served as assistant coach
in Denver from 2000-02.

Arizona (3-3) vs. Los Angeles Rams (4-2) at London

Cheers, Adrian. Welcome back to London.

Adrian Peterson made this journey with the Saints on Oct. 1. Then he was
dealt to Arizona, which lost its star running back, David Johnson, in the
opener. So now the Cardinals play across the pond, though in Twickenham rather
than Wembley.

”It’s definitely different Matt Judon
,” Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer says of having
Peterson behind him.

”Adrian is one of one. There’s nobody in the league like him right now, that
runs the ball the way he does. Any time you add somebody who’s that special or
that unique, it changes things.”

The Rams don’t want to change much of anything. One of the NFL’s surprise
squads under first-year coach Sean McVay – the youngest in league history at 31
– the Rams are 3-0 on the road for the first time since 2001.

New Orleans (3-2) at Green Bay (4-2)

No Drew Brees-Aaron Rodgers matchup here, with A-Rod out with a collarbone

Brees is up to old tricks with his accuracy and finding the end zone, and he
excels vs. Green Bay. New Orleans has won three straight.

It won’t help the Packers that their secondary is banged up – why does this
team always seem to have so many injuries? – or that Brett Hundley makes his
first career start behind center.

Baltimore (3-3) at Minnesota (4-2)

Minnesota has to be thinking big thoughts with Rodgers down in Green Bay. The
first step for the Vikings is to not stumble against the inconsistent

Joe Flacco is having a miserable time and ranks 31st in passer ratings.
Baltimore’s offense doesn’t make enough big plays, and the Vikings’ defense
leads the NFL in third downs, surrendering 18 of 72 conversions for a league-low
25 percent.

The sides have met only five times, but the previous one was a doozy. They
combined for an NFL-record five touchdowns in the final 125 seconds in Baltimore
as the Ravens won 29-26.
