Tom Brady set to become first in NFL history to reach "impossible" passing feat
Tom Brady is poised to set an NFL passing record that was once believed to be impossible as he approaches six figures in passing yardage. Brady is now only 164 yards away from reaching 100,000 passing yards in his career, which includes playoffs. He is currently at 99,836 yards.
Brady hasn't thrown fewer than 190 yards in a game this year, and averages 283.4 passing yards per game, so it's very likely that Brady will reach this historic mark in the next game, CBSSports reported.

Commanders hire B of A to explore sale
The Washington Commanders have hired Bank of America Securities to explore potential transactions involving the team, which has been largely speculated to imply they may be putting the franchise up for sale, ESPN reported. According to reports, the sale price could approach $5 billion. A spokesperson for the franchise said the team was exploring all options, which could mean it is looking for minority investors.
U.S. attorney's office investigating Commanders over alleged financial improprieties
The U.S. attorney's office in the Eastern District of Virginia has opened a criminal investigation into allegations that the Washington Commanders engaged in financial improprieties, according to a pair of sources who confirmed the matter with ESPN on Wednesday. A statement from an attorney representing the commanders said: "We are confident that, after these agencies have had a chance to review the documents and complete their work, they will come to the same conclusion as the team's internal review, that these allegations are simply untrue."
Panthers will start PJ Walker at QB for 4th consecutive game
For the 4th consecutive game, the Carolina Panthers will start PJ Walker at quarterback in Week 9 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The former XFL signal-caller, who opened the season at third string QB, may remain under center for a while, thanks to his fourth-quarter Hail Mary that led the Panthers to a comeback win over the Falcons, CBSSports reported. Walker took over in Week 6 after Mayfield was injured and has remained a starter ever since.
