Week 9 was loaded with intrigue, and most of it centered on the quarterback position.
The headline event was Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady where Brady and the Patriots came away with a blowout win. Ben Roethlisberger racked up another six touchdown passes, giving him 12 in two weeks, as the Steelers knocked off Baltimore to stay in a tight AFC North race.
Not all quarterbacks had quite as good of days as Roethlisberger. Brandon Weeden struggled mightily in replacement duty for Tony Romo as the Cowboys lost to Arizona. Nick Foles suffered a broken collarbone leaving Mark Sanchez as the starter in Philadelphia for at least a few weeks. He got off to a decent start against Houston.
There was also Robert Griffin III making his return and a wild ending in San Francisco that included a controversial Colin Kaepernick fumble.
