TOP TEAMS The Packers were the dominant team of the 1960s, winning NFL championships in 1961, '62 and '65 and then winning the NFL titles and the first two Super Bowls against the AFL champion Kansas City in the 1966 season and Oakland in the 1967 season with a roster that included 12 Hall of Famer players and coach Vince Lombardi. The tough luck team of the decade might have been the Baltimore Colts. They lost 13-10 in overtime to Green Bay in the 1965 playoffs when they had to play with halfback Tom Matte as the QB with Johnny Unitas and backup Gary Cuozzo injured.

He did more for professional football and the NFL than any other sports executive has done,'' Wellington Mara, then owner of the New York Giants, said of Rozelle. Rozelle's predecessor, Bert Bell, helped popularize the league, but its following still lagged behind the college game. Bell died in October 1959 of a heart attack while at a Steelers-Eagles game in Philadelphia, and NFL owners gathered three months later to elect a new commissioner.

If he's active, he's an upside flex option given the matchup, but his volume is difficult to project since this will likely be the first game with Saquon, Golden Tate, and Evan Engram all active. In his lone game with Tate, Shepard lined up outside on 64% of his snaps after playing outside on just 35% of snaps in the three games before Tate showed up. Tate has lined up in the slot on 82% of snaps and figures to see 5-7 targets with the other pass-catchers active this week.

Well, if you play fantasy football then the answer is probably quite recently. The eight XFL teams are each set to draft 70 players, resulting in 560 total draft picks over two days, starting Tuesday morning. Since there is no previous season to establish a draft order, teams will rotate positions in the order with each new position group, then follow a snake pattern, which is how many fantasy football drafts operate.

Change does not appear to be looming in Tampa Bay. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not ready to throw in the towel just yet, as head coach Bruce Arians confirmed the team are not looking to make any changes under center at this time. Jameis Winston, who is in the final year of his rookie contract after his fifth-year option was picked up, threw five interceptions and had two fumbles against the Carolina Panthers, though Arians admitted the team's battered line was partly to blame.

Six weeks into the 2019 NFL season, something unprecedented is happening in fantasy football. The Patriots peeled off another massive effort last Thursday night against the New York Giants—the defending Super Bowl champions surrendered just 213 yards of total offense and 14 points, adding a sack and four takeaways. The Patriots also piled on two more touchdowns—one on a fumble return and the other on a blocked punt.

Tom Brady has garnered every accolade under the sun. After the New England Patriots quarterback passed Peyton Manning into second place on the NFL's all-time passing list in Thursday's win over the New York Giants, head coach Bill Belichick showed Brady some love by giving him the game ball in the locker room. In an interview Monday on WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show," Brady expressed his appreciation for his coach's gesture.

The Seahawks were supposed to be continuing their retool this year, one season after their remake helped get them back into the playoffs. Instead, they have one of the NFL's best records. The Browns were pegged (hyped?) to be a budding powerhouse with all of the improvements in talent, plus the predicted maturity of Baker Mayfield in his second pro season.
