NFL

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning rekindled their long running rivalry Sunday night as the New England Patriots welcomed the Denver Broncos to Foxborough.

And it was Brady who gained the bragging rights with the quarterback leading the Pats to an impressive 43-21 win.

Manning meanwhile threw two crucial interceptions and blamed himself for the loss despite throwing for over 400 yards, saying his performance stunk.

"I was talking to (Broncos radio personality) Dave Logan and he said 'I've never heard you say you stink before,' and I don't usually stink," Manning said.

"But I stunk today. I don't make excuses, I don't say it happens every now and then. You don't need to let it happen. You got to play better. You got to practice better."

NBA

Over to the NBA and Kobe Bryant is reacting to the Lakers’ terrible start to the season the only way he knows how – with sarcasm.

Asked how he felt about the Lakers 0-4 record, the first time Bryant has begun an NBA season in such fashion, Kobe shrugged off the question by claiming he was "festively jovial". We doubt the same can be said for Lakers fans.

Boxing

And finally, Manny Pacquiao has banned any talk of Floyd Mayweather until after his upcoming fight with Chris Algieri. The Filipino told reports he didn’t want Mayweather to think he was using his name to gain publicity.

The move comes after months of speculation that a Pacquiao - Mayweather fight could finally be on the cards with the two fighters having done their best to keep the story in the headlines courtesy of some choice social media posts.
