The Denver Broncos capped a huge day for the franchise by confirming late Wednesday night that they had signed former Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, a free agent, to a one-year, $5 million deal. The move came a few hours after the Broncos grabbed wide receiver Wes Welker away from the New England Patriots. Rodgers-Cromartie spent the last two seasons with the Eagles, but struggled. A Pro Bowler in 2009, he has 16 interceptions in 77 career games. After spending six years with Tom Brady in New England, Pro Bowl receiver Welker agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal to team up with Peyton Manning in Denver.

Peyton Manning threw his first passes to his newest Broncos teammate Wes Welker during a workout Wednesday at Duke. Welker and Denver receivers Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker joined the veteran quarterback, working with Duke coach David Cutcliffe, who was Manning's quarterbacks coach at Tennessee and oversaw much of the quarterback's work when he was recovering from his neck surgeries. Welker left the Patriots and signed a two-year, $12 million deal with the Broncos this offseason.

Texans at Patriots 8:30 p.m., ESPN. Line: Patriots by 3. The skinny: Stevan Ridley and the revived New England ground game have brought balance to a Patriots offense that relied more heavily on quarterback Tom Brady in recent years. Ridley, in his second pro season, is third in the AFC with 1,010 yards rushing going into Monday night's game between the Texans (11-1) and the Patriots (9-3). Houston has the best record in the AFC and has clinched a playoff berth.

THE DALLAS Cowboys signed journeyman Frank Walker to bolster a depleted corps of cornerbacks. Orlando Scandrick is expected to miss at least the upcoming game at San Francisco because of an ankle injury, and Terence Newman has been sidelined since early in training camp because of a groin injury. Mike Jenkins was in and out of the opener because of a variety of injuries, leaving Dallas down to its fourth- and fifth-stringers, plus a backup safety. Walker has played in 93 games over an 8-year career with the Giants, Packers, Ravens and Vikings.

MIAMI - Tom Brady passed for a team-record 517 yards and four touchdowns, including a 99-yarder to Wes Welker, leading New England to a 38-24 romp past the Miami Dolphins on Monday night. Defensive end Jared Odrick picked off a deflected pass to set up a Miami touchdown and end Brady's NFL-record streak of 358 passes without an interception. After that it was all Brady, who went 32 for 48 and became the 11th quarterback to throw for at least 500 yards. Norm Van Brocklin set the record of 554 yards in 1951.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score as the New England Patriots (8-3) trampled the New York Jets (4-7) with a 35-point second quarter in a 49-19 victory Thursday night. After a scoreless opening quarter, the Patriots went on a touchdown spree despite holding the ball for only 2 minutes, 14 seconds as they took advantage of several mistakes by Rex Ryan's Jets. Their 35 second-quarter points tied for the fourth-most in a quarter in NFL history.

Now that our drafts are behind us, all we can do now is wait for Thursday night . . . and dream up scenarios in which our late-round fliers evolve into next year's elites. Here are 10 burning questions that should be answered as opening weekend unfolds: 1. How healthy are Robert Griffin III, Arian Foster, Maurice Jones-Drew, Brandon Marshall, Victor Cruz, Jordy Nelson, Roddy White, Wes Welker and other nicked-up stars? An all-pro cast of walking wounded is expected to suit up for the first significant action of the season this weekend, with lingering concerns hanging over assorted body parts.

PATRIOTS WIDE receiver Wes Welker is ready to go long. We're talking hair here folks. Welker announced that he has undergone a hair transplant, and should — according to Dr. Robert Leonard who performed the procedure — start seeing results in about 4 months. Welker was far from bald, but apparently wanted to add some fullness to his thinning mop. We don't, however, expect him to resemble Larry Fitzgerald any time soon. Welker, by the way, is so happy with the result that he'll appear in ads with Leonard to talk about the benefits of hair transplants.

THEY REMEMBER the year they watched the phenomenon unfold. Bradley Fletcher was a junior at Iowa. He intercepted two passes that season and began to pop on scouts' radar, a big step in his college career that helped him go in the third round 2 years later. Brandon Boykin was a senior at Fayette County in Fayetteville, Ga., a high school star preparing to head to UGA. That was 2007. From different sections of the country, they, with the rest of the football world, turned their eyes to New England and witnessed history.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 9 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Nick Foles, QB, Eagles at Texans. Foles has been finding his groove over the last three weeks, though he is still tossing as many interceptions as TDs. Houston's defense excels against the run, while its secondary poses few problems to opposing passers. Foles should find great success, likely posting his second three-TD outing of the season. Ronnie Hillman, RB, Broncos at Patriots. Everyone is expecting an aerial showcase in this game, and we'll certainly get that.

Roger Goodell may soon be the commissioner of two leagues - the NFL and the NSL. We all know, of course, what NFL stands for. It's the almighty National Football League, the revenue ruler of all professional sports. The NSL? That stands for the National Suspension League. According to ESPN.com, a total of 30 players will be serving suspensions during the first week of the season, and that does not include six suspended free agents. That number is up from 21 players a year ago, and we're still waiting for the first player to stand up and say: "Yeah, I did it. I'm a cheater and a liar, and I've shamed my team and my league.

THE DRAFTS room is empty. The spilled beer has been cleaned up. No more cheat sheets, sleepers or mock drafts. For better or worse, richer or poorer, in suspension and health, we have our fantasy teams now. What we don't have are answers. Those will come in the next 17 weeks. By then, hopefully my guys will have paid their league fees. As Week 1 kicks off, here are a handful of questions that will be decided between now and when the Christmas carolers knock on the door and scare the bejesus out of our dog. *  What sort of impact will Darren Sproles have on LeSean McCoy's numbers?

IS BILL BELICHICK cheating again? Probably not, but that didn't stop a slew of reports suggesting the Patriots coach, who was fined $500,000 by the NFL in 2007 for his role in Spygate, was in possession of a New York Jets playbook. The news was originally reported in a story that Greg Bedard, of MMQB.SI.com, wrote about Browns coach Mike Pettine. Pettine was discussing why he purposely has a thin playbook, saying, "I don't put a lot of graduate-level information in it. We know in places like New England, it's only a matter of time that they somehow mysteriously end up with our playbook.

BRIAN WESTBROOK wasn't highly recruited coming out of high school, in part because he was coming off a knee injury. All he did at Villanova was set records. Offensive lineman Ben Ijalana had no other scholarship offers. He started every game of his college career on the Main Line and was a second-round NFL draft pick in 2011. Matt Szczur also had few options. But he helped take the Wildcats to a national title in 2009. And one NFL scout projected him as a potential Wes Welker.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - A lot of Eagles fans wondered aloud this season how much better Chip Kelly's high-powered offense might have been with the injured Jeremy Maclin mixed in among the wide receivers. Here's one obvious answer: not nearly as good as Peyton Manning and his cast of dynamic wide receivers with the Denver Broncos. This, of course, will forever be known as The Season of Peyton. It will be his name next to the NFL-record 55 touchdown passes and the 5,477 passing yards. With a win in the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium, he will have completed the greatest season by any quarterback in the league's history.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - The Eagles have a scout who watches college basketball, looking for potential football players. He searches for players like Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas. Before Thomas was a part of the Broncos' lethal receiving corps - four players with at least four touchdowns in the regular season - he was a forward for Portland State preparing to play Xavier in the 2009 NCAA tournament.  "This isn't something that I imagined doing when I was 20 years old getting ready to play in the NCAA tournament," Thomas said.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Whether he deserves them or not, Peyton Manning can't escape questions about his poor record in cold-weather games. With this year's Super Bowl being played outdoors at nearby MetLife Stadium, the Denver Broncos quarterback was sure to be asked about the wintry conditions - rain, sleet, snow, and a below-freezing temperature at kickoff - in the forecast for this Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. In fact, it took all of three questions before the topic was broached during the Broncos' first news conference aboard the Cornucopia Majesty docked at the Hyatt Jersey City on Sunday.

DENVER - A minute-and-a-half into his postgame news conference, the inevitable question was thrown at Peyton Manning. And he threw it right back. He wasn't ready to talk about the next chapter in the Peyton vs. Tom Brady saga. He'll get to that on Wednesday when the Broncos return to the practice field to start preparing for their AFC Championship Game battle against Brady and the Patriots next Sunday in Denver. Yesterday, the soon-to-be 37-year-old quarterback just wanted to savor his team's 24-17, divisional-round playoff win over the San Diego Chargers.
