Peterson on Vikings' NFC North lead: ‘I feel like there’s a shift’

The tide turned in the NFC North when the Minnesota Vikings moved up to first place after their team won and the Green Bay Packers lost in Week 10. Therefore a win at home for Minnesota when it squares off with the Packers on Sunday would give the Vikings a two-game lead in a division that has been dominated by Green Bay for the past three seasons. Speaking on the Vikings rise...

Tom Brady, Patriots — Tom Terrific did throw his third interception of the season (how dare he!) but the Patriots still moved to 9-0 and Brady was still solid.
