    Tom Brady ranked No. 1 in NFL by fellow players

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was voted the league's top player in the NFL Network's annual top-100 poll, a ranking based on a tabulation of 902 players. It marks the second time that Brady has ranked No. 1 and makes him the only player to be voted first multiple times since the poll debuted in 2011. He was No. 2 last season, behind Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. Brady was also voted No. 1 in 2011. He was fourth in both 2012 and 2013 and third in both 2014 and 2015. "Best ever.

    Rodgers wins on 'Pyramid' with Bradshaw clue

    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Terry Bradshaw. Old people. And ... Terry Bradshaw. That's all Aaron Rodgers needed to come up with for "People That Are Bald" to win his teammate $100,000 on ABC's "The $100,000 Pyramid" in an episode that aired Sunday night. The Green Bay Packers quarterback took on "Dancing with the Stars" co-host and veteran sideline reporter Erin Andrews as the celebrities in the episode. Although Andrews zinged Rodgers early in the show with a reference to the Packers' 44-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in January's NFC Championship Game, Rodgers got the last laugh by emerging with the victory -- with time to spare in the championship circle. That Rodgers won was hardly surprising, given
