What a boomerang of a few years it has been for Matt Flynn. The former Green Bay backup quarterback has re-signed with the Packers after a series of false starts with Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo. Flynn will back up Scott Tolzien, a promoted practice-squad player who was bumped up because of injuries to starter Aaron Rodgers and backup Seneca Wallace. In his previous go-round with the Packers, Flynn backed up Rodgers and won a Super Bowl ring after the 2010 season. He caught the eye of other teams that season when he threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns in a Week 16 game against Detroit.

Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey was served a grand jury subpoena Sunday in connection to an investigation into alleged gun trafficking by former New England tight end Aaron Hernandez, according to a Sports Illustrated report. Pouncey, a close friend and college teammate of Hernandez at the University of Florida, was served papers at Gillette Stadium less than an hour after the Dolphins lost to the Patriots, the report said. According to the report, two state police officers approached Pouncey in the hallway between the visitors' locker room and the Dolphins' bus, handing him the subpoena.

With the playoff picture still fluid heading into the final Sunday of the NFL season, there are no sure-thing matchups in the first round. All we really know is that Kansas City will be the AFC's No. 5 seed no matter what. If the 15 favored teams were to win Sunday, and if San Francisco were to beat Arizona in the weekend's only pick-'em game, the opening round of the playoffs would look like this: Miami at Cincinnati - This would be a rematch of a Halloween game which the Dolphins won at home, 22-20.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had words for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on the field during the game Sunday, on the sidelines immediately following the game and on Twitter hours after the game. Sherman intercepted a Brady pass attempt in the third quarter after he had told Brady all game that he would do so. "I kept saying I'm going to get that next time. Every TV timeout, I went up and said it right to [Brady]: 'Please keep trying me. I'm going to take it from you.' That was when they were winning," Sherman said, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.

It has been a summer for learning a new offense and getting used to new coaches for the state's most prolific sophomore quarterback from a year ago, Andrew Elffers of Pasadena Maranatha. He passed for 3,328 yards and 37 touchdowns while throwing mostly from a shotgun formation. The new coach, Peter Karavedas, a 27-year-old former defensive coordinator at Whittier Christian, hired Mike Owens, a former Van Nuys High and Oregon quarterback, to install a West Coast passing scheme, in which the quarterback takes the snap from under center, looks for quick releases and must make pinpoint passes.

Philadelphia's Nick Foles became the first NFL quarterback to throw for seven touchdowns in a game Sunday since Denver's Peyton Manning did it in Week 1 this season. Manning was the first player to toss that many touchdown passes since Minnesota's Joe Kapp did it in 1969. Four other quarterbacks did it before him and no one has ever thrown for more. So in a way, Manning and Foles are in a league of their own as the only two players to achieve the feat in 44 years. The fact that they did it in the same season within two months of each other makes their accomplishments all the more special.

A Super Bowl hangover and the NFL lockout weren't about to slow down Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. The New Orleans Saints just couldn't keep up. Rodgers came out on top in a memorable opening-night duel with Drew Brees, and the Packers made a goal-line stand on the final play of the game to beat the Saints 42-34 on Thursday night. Packers rookie Randall Cobb caught a touchdown from Rodgers and ran a kickoff back 108 yards for a score in the third quarter -- tying an NFL record for the longest kickoff return in history.
