1. Brady the winner in the quarterback duel
Two of the best NFL players of all time met on Sunday when Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, strategists sharing five MVPs, faced each other for the second time.
It was Brady, 41, who celebrated the Massachusetts win with the New England Patriots hitting the Green Bay packers 31-17, improving to a 7-2 record for the AFC East. But it was thanks in large part to the Patriots team's effort, rather than a leading role for their quarterback.
In terms of statistics, there was not much among the big names in the NFL. Rodgers played for two touchdowns and 259 yards while Brady played for only one and took 294 yards. He did not even throw an intercept.
Brady, however, put his name on the history books once again, surpassing Peyton Manning's record, becoming the first NFL player to accumulate more than 80,000 yards in his career total.

In fact, he is only the second . the man climb from outside the top 20 in the world to number 1 in the world in the same year.
Djokovic beat Roger Federer in a three-set semi-final in the French capital on Saturday, which the Serbian described as "one of the best" matches between the two.
3. Female referee makes rugby history in English

Cox has appeared in the World Championship and Sevens World Cup and will be working behind the scenes of the men's international – Hong Kong – Germany and Kenya – Germany – this fall. However, no woman supervised a level one test match yet.
