This is yard markers Chris Mueller.
And here are your three big things from Week nine of the NFL season.
It's hard to make a bigger statement than the one New Orleans made in throttling Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, 38 to 3.
New Orleans now has a clear path.
Toe ownership of the NFC South and possibly the NFC is number one.
Overall seed Marshawn Lattimore helped pace the defense, Drew Brees was flawless and the Saints picked off Tom Brady three times.
Brady has seven interceptions total on this season, five of which have come in his two losses against New Orleans.
Antonio Brown's debut for the Bucks was mostly uneventful.
Three catches for 31 yards.
But he and Brady got crossed up on a route which led to an interception, and it seems that his presence might be indirectly causing friction already between Brady and Bruce Arians.
After the loss, Arians said of wide receiver Mike Evans, quote, He didn't get targeted, that's all.
One thing is clear.
Tom Brady is the man running the show.
He created the show and its success or failure and all the credit or blame for it will rest with him.
The Miami Dolphins might be for real into a tagger.
Vilo was very sharp in his second professional start, the Dolphins got a defensive touchdown for the second straight week and Tiger Vilo was much more aggressive, throwing for 248 yards and two touchdowns and repeatedly answering Kyler Murray in Arizona and what was an entertaining back and forth affair.
Bryan Flores has the Dolphins defense fourth in the league in points per game allowed, And, somewhat surprisingly, Miami is 10th in the NFL in scoring offense, five and three.
The Dolphins need to be taken seriously as a least a wild card contender in the A F C.
If they can find a way to score a road win in Buffalo late in the season, they might even have a chance to reel in the Bills for the A F C East title.
Regardless of what happens moving forward, the future looks bright in South Florida, and Flores is on the short list of candidates for Coach of the year honors.
Finally, the Raiders hit the halfway point of their season, winners of three of four and in good position to make a playoff push after a thrilling victory against, yes, a snake bit Chargers team Las Vegas, five and three on the year.
And they also have a chance to make some hay in their next four games.
They've got very winnable contest against the Broncos, Falcons and Jets sandwiched around a rematch with the Kansas City Chiefs, Derek Carr has quietly put together inefficient, almost missed Akef free season.
His passer rating of 1 10 through eight games put them fifth in the league.
And while his counting statistics aren't eye popping, he's playing well enough to keep Jon Gruden happy.
Always an important thing if you're Gruden's quarterback.
The Raiders have had some covert related strife this year, and their overall numbers suggest that they might be regressing sooner rather than later.
But of car can continue to deliver timely scores.
There's no reason to think that Las Vegas can't Chris in their new stadium with a playoff berth.
So there you have it.
Three big things from Week nine of the NFL season for yard Barker.
