KANSAS CITY, Mo. - In the final days of Jovan Belcher's life, he could have taken advantage of numerous avenues for support provided by the Kansas City Chiefs and the NFL. This past July, the NFL established an emergency hotline that operates 24 hours a day and connects players, staff, and family members in crisis with mental-health professionals who are not affiliated with the league or its teams. There are also numerous symposiums and support personnel whose jobs are to ensure the well-being of the players.

Broncos 31, Steelers 19 DENVER - Peyton Manning made a successful NFL return from a year's sabbatical to lead Denver past Pittsburgh. The four-time MVP coming off four neck surgeries completed 19 of 26 passes for 253 yards and two touchdowns. He got a big assist from another free agent, cornerback Tracy Porter, whose 43-yard interception return of Ben Roethlisberger's pass with two minutes left sealed the win. Manning, jettisoned by the Colts in March after missing all of last season with a nerve injury that weakened his throwing arm, hit Demaryius Thomas with a 71-yard touchdown toss for his first score as a Bronco.

Since the Packers began the season 1-2 and Aaron Rodgers urged fans to "relax," he has been on a roll rarely seen in the NFL. Green Bay is 6-1 since then, and the quarterback has been the main reason. Here is what he has done the last seven games: 23 TD passes and just two interceptions. Quarterback ratings of: 151.2, 138.7, 99.7, 154.5, 93.7, 145.8, and 120.3 (Sunday vs. Eagles). 9.7 average yards per pass attempt (2,051 yards in 211 attempts). Rodgers entered the game leading the NFL at 8.7 per attempt.

Don't look now, but the 1950s are breaking out in the NFL. Talk all you want about parity, but nearly one-third of the league's 32 teams - 10 of 32 - have yet to win a Super Bowl. That might change in what is shaping up to be a season of revivals. More than halfway through the 2014 schedule, four of the NFL's eight divisions are led by teams that have never hoisted a Lombardi Trophy - the Eagles, Browns, Lions, and Cardinals. That's interesting because, if you're willing to conflate the new and original Browns, those four combined to win 10 of the 14 NFL titles between 1947 and 1960.

The Eagles worked out free-agent quarterbacks Terrelle Pryor and Thad Lewis last week, an NFL source said. Pryor, who spent his first three NFL seasons with the Raiders, was traded to the Seahawks in April and was released in August. The 6-foot-4, 233-pounder wants to continue to play quarterback, but he could have a better chance to land with a team as a wide receiver. The Eagles also worked out the 6-2, 220-pound Lewis, who has four seasons of NFL experience as a backup, in August.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was a little busy last week as he prepared to explain to an appeals judge his finger-in-the-wind decision process regarding the suspension and re-suspension of Baltimore running back Ray Rice. Even so, Goodell must have noticed that one of the league's owners, Washington's Daniel Snyder, was suing five Native Americans for the crime of being upset about the "Redskins" team nickname. If he wins the suit, maybe Snyder can take their land and force them to live in a fenced-in section of the FedEx Field parking lot. Not much of a view, but, hey, no income tax. The five activists, perhaps to their own surprise, won a ruling earlier this year from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that canceled six of the team's trademarks that used the word "Redskins," with the ruling board stating it did so because the word was "disparaging to Native Americans.

The inclination is always to compare and debate whenever Tom Brady and Peyton Manning go against one another, which the future Hall of Fame quarterbacks will do for the 16th time in their careers Sunday when the New England Patriots play host to the Denver Broncos. They are not just two of the best quarterbacks of their era, they are two of the best ever, and they remain elite even as they approach the age of 40. You can look for cracks, but it would be a huge mistake to ever think you have found one. They may have a bad game every now and again, as Brady did in Week 4 vs. Kansas City, but neither has ever had a bad season, unless you count the ones they sat out injured.

All week, the questions about how the Eagles are going to handle J.J. Watt this Sunday were numerous and persistent. Center Jason Kelce, preparing to play for the first time since undergoing Week 4 abdominal surgery, said all the usual things about how smart and fierce Watt is, how hard it is to prepare for an opponent who moves around the line so much. Finally, though, after question number eleventy-billion about Watt, Kelce said this: "We don't care who we're playing, we're playing our offense.

Bill O'Brien feels at home again. That probably sounds like a silly thing to say about a guy from New England who left a job in State College, Pa., for one deep in the heart of Texas. Home for O'Brien, however, is not so much about location as it is the level of football he is coaching. He showed a lot of courage in January 2012 when he left his job as the New England Patriots offensive coordinator to take over a storied college program that had shockingly spiraled out of control.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - There's no crime in being pretty good. Consider Canada; even Americans agree their neighbors are all right. Malaysia isn't Singapore, but it's hard to have a bad time in Kuala Lumpur. Sweden and Norway get all the press, but you might actually come out smarter if you're raised in Finland. There is no häpeä in hailing from Helsinki, no shame having kinfolk in Calgary. So, too, there is nothing wrong with being an Eagle; nothing wrong with being pretty good.

"The NFL is coming, the NFL is coming. " That's the Paul Revere paraphrase they want to yell in Britain, and they want to yell it a lot more than three times a season. George Osborne, the country's treasury chief, told the Evening Standard last week that the British government will do whatever it takes to get a permanent NFL team in London, which is where the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons will play Sunday in a game that begins at 9:30 a.m. here and shortly after tea and crumpets at Wembley Stadium.

The Eagles are 5-1 this season - just one touchdown drive away from being undefeated - and that record is remarkable considering the adversity that has greeted the start of Chip Kelly's second year. Some of the adversity couldn't have been predicted or prevented. Some has been self-inflicted. And some is the result of opponents' adapting to what has been learned about how the Eagles will play on both sides of the ball under Kelly. Specifically, the offensive line and middle of the defense have been affected by injury.
