The Saints gave up 483 yards and 35 points in Sunday’s win over the Rams Authentic Jamon Brown Jersey , but the game did feature one big win for their defense.They held Rams running back Todd Gurley to a season-low 79 yards from scrimmage — he averaged over 143 yards in the first eight weeks of the year — and players from the unit said after the game that slowing Gurley was the key to their plan for Sunday’s game. Gurley made some plays and scored a touchdown, but defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins said not allowing “him to really wreck this game was big for us.”“You can’t take away everyone; they have so many weapons,” defensive end Alex Okafor said, via Herbie Teope of NFL Media. “If you try to take away everyone, you’re going to take away no one. We came in saying we had to limit the run, and without even watching the game, if you look at the stat sheets, whoever had the most rushing yards was going to win the game and we knew that coming in. And that held true.”The Rams have been a quick strike team on offense this year, but their chances to put points on the board were minimized by the nearly 34 minutes of possession the Saints enjoyed as a result of their ability to win the ground game on both sides of the ball. Although Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles kept him from adding to his fistful of Super Bowl rings last winter, Tom Brady remains the best quarterback in the NFL, even at age 41.In the first of the weekly Associated Press position rankings for this season, Brady edged out Aaron Rodgers in voting by 10 AP football writers.The New England Patriots star received six of the first-place votes in balloting completed before Thursday night's opener between the Eagles and Falcons in a 10-points-to-one point system. Brady placed second with the other four voters, all of whom had Brady a notch below Green Bay's star quarterback, for 96 points."The Michael Jordan/Wayne Gretzky of pro football, Brady makes everyone around him better," said AP's Barry Wilner, based in New York, who had Brady No. 1. "That includes receivers, runners, blockers Limited Greg Zuerlein Jersey , defenders and special teams. Oh yeah, and coaches. At 41, he's still the guy."Rodgers, who is coming off a shoulder injury that spoiled both his and the Packers' 2017 season, received 93 points as he finished second on all other ballots except one, in which he placed third behind Drew Brees of the Saints.EDITOR'S NOTE — The Associated Press is ranking the top 10 players at a different position every week of the NFL season, based on the votes and insights of AP football writers Simmi Buttar, Dave Campbell, Schuyler Dixon, Josh Dubow, Howard Fendrich, Rob Maaddi, Arnie Stapleton, Teresa M. Walker, Dennis Waszak Jr., and Barry Wilner. This feature will move on Fridays."When Rodgers is healthy there's no one more talented in the game," said AP's Josh Dubow, based in the Bay Area. "But he's missed nearly half the season with injuries twice in the past five years."Still, Dubow ranked Rodgers, who just signed a four-year Gerald Everett Jersey , $138 million extension , ahead of Brady, whom he said "is showing no signs of slowing down at age 41 after throwing for 505 yards in last season's Super Bowl. If he thrives with this depleted group of receivers that will be another notch on his quest to be the best QB ever."Brees was a distant third, followed by Seattle's Russell Wilson and Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger rounding out the top five.They were followed by Atlanta's Matt Ryan, injured Eagles starter Carson Wentz, who is still recovering from a knee injury that sidelined him in the Super Bowl, the Chargers' Philip Rivers, Carolina's Cam Newton and Detroit's Matthew Stafford.Wentz and Rivers were the only quarterbacks to crack the top 10 this season, supplanting the Colts' Andrew Luck and the Raiders' Derek Carr, who were seventh and eighth, respectively, a year ago.Others receiving votes were the Texans' DeShaun Watson, the Rams' Jared Goff, Luck, the Giants' Eli Manning, Carr, the 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo and Vikings new QB Kirk Cousins, the gem of this year's free agency class .Receiving a single vote were Washington's new quarterback, veteran Alex Smith, the Buccaneers' Jameis Winston and Colin Kaepernick  Nickell Robey-Coleman Jersey Salute to Service , the former 49ers QB who hasn't played since 2016 after he sparked the sport's player protests of social injustices by kneeling for the national anthem.Just like last year, Brady and Rodgers easily outdistanced the competition.Only, this time, Rodgers closed the gap with Brady, who won his third NFL MVP award last season and made it to his record eighth Super Bowl.The Packers' season fell apart after Rodgers sustained a broken collarbone in Week 6 when he was slammed to the ground by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr.Rodgers "proved his greatness by his absence to injury last year rather than by his presence," suggested AP's Dave Campbell (based in Minneapolis). Brady, Campbell said, is "still going strong at age 41, though Father Time will eventually beat Father Tom."AP's Schuyler Dixon (based in Dallas) also put Rodgers over Brady, calling it "a nod to the not-so-distant future at the position, assuming Brady doesn't play until he's 60."Age was irrelevant to AP's Dennis Waszak Jr., based in New York."So what that he's 41?" Waszak asked. "The guy still performs like a youngster and remains the QB you want under center with a game on the line. The cast might change around Brady, but he still delivers."New York-based Simmi Buttar said Brady's "the G.O.A.T." — greatest of all time. As for Rodgers, Buttar said he "has only one title, but that has more to do with the lack of help around him. Though he needs a second Super Bowl for his legacy."AP's Rob Maaddi, based in Philadelphia, gave Kaepernick the final vote in his top 10.Kaepernick, he said, "has that talent to be a dynamic top-tier QB if a team gives him the opportunity he deserves."The former 49ers quarterback is locked in a grievance with the league that accuses owners of colluding to keep him off any roster and is the subject of Nike's new ad campaign on the 30th anniversary of the iconic "Just Do It" venture.The highly anticipated spot made its debut during the Eagles' 18-12 season-opening win over Atlanta Thursday night.
