Not for the first time in his career, Tom Brady made NFL history, on Sunday night.

The New England quarterback won the 201st game of his career at the Patriots defeated the LA Rams in Foxborough. Up until this weekend, no quarterback had won more than 200 games. That record was held by Peyton Manning.

Brady threw for 269 yards, including one touchdown pass to Chris Hogan, as the Patriots won 26-10. They now have a 10-2 record for the season.

Despite the Patriots' impressive record, they still lie behind the Oakland Raiders in the AFC West. The Raiders came from behind on Sunday night to defeat Buffalo 38-24. With six wins in a row, Oakland look set to earn a wildcard spot in the playoffs at the very least.

In the NFC, Seattle's impressive form continues. The Seahawks were 40-7 winners over last season's NFC Champion Carolina Panthers.

Russell Westbrook only threw one touchdown pass, as the Seahawks dominated the game on the ground. Thomas Rawls and Tyler Lockett scored three touchdowns between them for the win, as Seattle move to 8-3-1.

Detroit Lions look to have wrapped up the NFC North. Matt Stafford's team were 28-13 winners away from home against the New Orleans Saints. Their 8-4 record is now only second to the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC.
