Even though they already held the No. 1 spot in FPI's rankings, the Eagles improved their FPI rating more than anyone else this week after blowing out the Cowboys. The ratings for the Chargers, Ravens, Vikings and Patriots also were upgraded by more than a point following their respective performances yesterday. Remember, FPI isn't describing what has happened but is rating team strength going forward.

Tom Brady is the first player to score at least 25 fantasy points in games played in the U.S., Mexico and the United Kingdom.

This is Tom Brady's 46th career game with at least 25 fantasy points, which is second-most among quarterbacks in history behind only Drew Brees (52). It's also sixth-most among all positions.

Stephen Gostkowski's 62-yard field goal – which might have been good from 70 yards – capped off an impressive first half for the Patriots. The defense has been opportunistic in forcing turnovers, the offense has mixed an up-tempo approach at times while Tom Brady has found his rhythm, and the special teams remain solid. The Patriots are in control.

There have been multiples times when the crowd at Estadio Azteca has chanted "Brady! Brady! Brady!" in the first quarter of today's game. The first time came after the Raiders were stopped on third down and the crowd knew Brady would soon be taking the field.
