Aaron Rodgers Knows Who Greatest QB Is Aaron Rodgers Knows Who Greatest QB Is

Picking between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers seems like an impossible task. While a Brady-Rodgers matchup has proven to be just as rare as a unicorn, Sunday's game should live up to the hype.

After Oakland's blowout loss, the Raiders are well-positioned for the No. 1 selection. Mullens didn't play a flawless game, but he rebounded quickly from his few mistakes. Former Niners receiver Terrell Owens was presented his Hall of Fame ring at a halftime ceremony. Owens said he was upset at the voters who made him wait three years for the honour, saying he believed they brought in off-field issues into their deliberations instead of focusing exclusively on what Owens did as a player.

Max Meyer picks Washington State: Sure, the Pac-12 doesn't have any undefeated teams left, but Washington State is the only team in the country that has covered the spread in every game this season.
