One month into the season, teams are beginning to show fans what they are made of. Here is look at some of the tope headlines from the last week in the NFL

Brady’s primetime return to New England

This Sunday night in primetime, Tom Brady returns to Foxbourogh, a city he brought six championships to and cemented his legacy as the greatest of all time. While fans will cheer him as he emerges from the visitors’’  locker room, Brady’s rift with his former head coach in New England, Bill Belichick, is starting to come to light.

According to Seth Wickersham’s new book titled “Better to be Feared,” a collection of stories from unnamed Patriots insiders, Belichick declined a final in-person goodbye with Brady after he decided to take his talents to Tampa Bay. While Belichick has denied all accusations by Wickersham, it has become clear that the best coach-player duo the sport has ever seen is breaking apart before our eyes. 

Sunday night will help to answer the age-old question of who was central to the Patriots’ success. Brady or Belichick. 

Cowboys look legit  

How bout them, Cowboys! After thrashing the Philadelphia Eagles 41-21 in a primetime matchup Monday, The Dallas Cowboys have put the league on notice. Quarterback Dak Prescott showed his electric offensive ability as he slung the ball downfield at will, finding tight end Dalton Schultz twice for a touchdown and wide receiver Cedrick Wilson for the other. 

The Dallas defense was lights out as well, with two interceptions from cornerbacks Anthony Brown and Trevon Diggs. The Cowboys also forced a fumble in the Philadelphia endzone, recovering it for a touchdown.

As much as everybody hates to see America’s team prosper, them Cowboys might be the real deal.

Josh Gordon reinstated 

It’s been a long road for wide receiver Josh Gordon who has been suspended six times by the NFL league office for violating substance abuse policies. Gordon, a former first team all-pro for the Cleveland Browns as well as stints with the Patriots and Seahawks, is looking to make up for all of his past mistakes.

Gordon joins the Kansas City Chiefs, a team shockingly sitting in last place in the AFC West looking to bounce back from two devastating losses to the Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Chargers. 

Gordon has shown his talent and ability to get open. We’ll see if Gordon can reignite the spark that has driven the Chiefs to the Super Bowl the past two years.
