So another NFL quarterback threw for 400 yards? What else is new? Heading into Monday night's Pittsburgh-Cincinnati game, there have been six 400-yard-passing performances this season, the most of any two-week span in NFL history. And Sunday, three quarterbacks threw for at least 400 yards without an interception -- Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, Philadelphia's Michael Vick and San Diego's Philip Rivers -- the most such performances in league history. There have been five 400-yard, zero-interception performances in the first two weeks this season, and that's only one off the record for a season.

Aaron Rodgers is not the first man given the unenviable assignment of filling the cleats of a legendary former Green Bay Packers quarterback. Scott Hunter had the privilege 36 years ago. And it was a privilege, says Hunter, who not only took over for Bart Starr in 1972 but did so with the two-time Super Bowl most valuable player looking over his shoulder and endlessly critiquing his performance as a quarterback advisor to then-Packers coach...

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.

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.

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.

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.

For a quarterback once touted as California's Heisman Trophy candidate, Aaron Rodgers has sure gotten a lot of Heisman stiff-arms over the years. He got one in high school, when he failed to garner a Division I scholarship offer. He got one in junior college, when Cal noticed him only when scouting one of his teammates. And he got one in last spring's NFL draft, when San Francisco passed on him at No. 1 and he had to wait around for more than four hours before Green Bay selected him 24th.
