First and 10: Record-breakers

Tom Brady‘s air show Monday night was the talk of the NFL, but lost in the afterglow of Brady’s 517 passing yards and New England’s 38-24 victory is the fact that Dolphins QB Chad Henne was pretty good, too. In fact, the teams combined for 906 net yards passing, an NFL record. Watch all the dizzying highlights here.

Here’s what else is on tap for Tuesday:

  • Brady wasn’t the only player to set a record Monday: Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski tied a league mark with a 63-yard field goal against the Denver Broncos, helping Oakland get a win in coach Hue Jackson’s debut.
  • Tony Romo‘s fourth-quarter flop against the Jets mimics an all-too-familiar story. The Cowboys have his back, but is the tide turning against a QB whose late-game and late-season failures are legion?
  • In his latest Pick Six, Adam Rank explains how he rang in the new season with a smile after watching the NFL’s tributes to 9/11 … oh, and a Cowboys loss.
  • Ben Roethlisberger struggled mightily against the Ravens on Sunday. Find out how his fantasy stock and that of other star players were impacted by this weekend’s games.
  • Don’t forget to watch NFL Network for league updates all day long: On Tuesday, Albert Breer reports from Patriots Cam, where the team reacts to Monday’s record-setting performance in Miami. On 49ersCam, Ted Ginn Jr. reflects on his heroics against the Seahawks.
