I'll start this week's roundup with the same lede as last week: "Stop me if you've heard this before: Tom Brady (Michigan) had a huge day Sunday afternoon."
The four-time Super Bowl winner threw a pair of touchdown passes, becoming just the fourth player ever to reach 400 career touchdowns, and passed for 358 yards in reigning champ New England's 51-17 victory over Jacksonville.
How good was the Brady-led offense? Just check out the Patriots' (ridiculous) drive chart in this tweet. That's right, not a single punt.
Brady was the biggest ex-Big Ten star, but there were plenty of other headliners, including Le'Veon Bell making his season debut. Bell showed no rust, either, rushing for 62 yards and a score and catching seven balls for 70 yards.
Watch Week 3 Big Ten highlights, courtesy of @NFL:
