Tom Brady bested Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Sunday to temporarily grab the AFC’s top seed.
However, with upcoming games against Indianapolis, Detroit, and Green Bay, that spot appears to be rather tenuous for the Patriots.
Meanwhile, the NFC finds the Cowboys on a mudslide of doom thanks to the appearance of Brandon Weeden in the lineup for Tony Romo.
Oddly enough, the NFC East may come down to Mark Sanchez and Brandon Weeden. Bet you had that one figured out during the preseason.
