Big days for Ben and Brady
Sunday was a big day for multiple Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks from the AFC. Tom Brady went 30-for-35 with 354 yards and five touchdowns in the New England Patriots' 51-23 win over the Chicago Bears. Ben Roethlisberger had an even more memorable day, becoming the first QB in NFL history to notch a second 500-yard passing game (he went 40-for-49 with 522 yards and six touchdowns in a 51-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts). Not bad for a pair of players whose teams were considered done just weeks ago.

Connor Callihan, a junior at Roberson High School in Asheville, North Carolina, was steps from the finish line at a cross-country meet Monday when he felt his leg snap.

"I have to finish. I'm doing this for my team," Callihan told Asheville's News 13 in this video:
Something tells us that attitude will help Callihan recover ahead of schedule.
