And it will certainly be a loss for this team and the locker room. To their credit, the Browns did truly appear to believe in Griffin, as his teammates voted him as one of their captains for the season. A year ago was the ideal example of what McCown brings to the Browns. Look for the Eagles to run the ball a bit more against a weak Chicago front. Before McCown became the quarterback in 2015, the tight end had just 44 catches in six seasons, but last year with McCown as the quarterback, the ...

Newman's Chase hopes were vanquished when Stewart wrecked him in an apparent retaliatory move on the back stretch with 37 laps remaining.

Brady led the Patriots to the Super Bowl title that year - and three more - relinquishing the job only in 2008, when he was injured, and again this year when NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell benched him four games for his role in a scheme to use improperly inflated footballs in the 2015 AFC title game.
