FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Tom Brady was 24 years old in his first season as a starter. It ended with a Super Bowl triumph.
Now he's 35 and without a championship in seven years.
HOUSTON (AP) Houston's Andre Johnson heard the whispers he'd lost a step and that he'd never again be an elite receiver as he struggled through the worst season of his career in 2011.
CINCINNATI (AP) Michael Johnson towers over blockers at 6-foot-7. At 6-foot-1, Geno Atkins often gets dwarfed on the line. Domata Peko is gregarious.
