The NFL Week Nine took place with some great performances throughout the Sunday schedule. It was time to turn back the clocks, and a couple of players turned back the clock. Chris Johnson brought us back to 2010 with a 150 yard rushing performance and Tom Brady and the Patriots lit up the Steelers for 55 points. The player of the day had to go to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles who threw for a record-tying seven touchdown passes in an Eagles 49-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders.

The NBA season continued and featured some solid games across the board. Russell Westbrook returned earlier than expected for the Oklahoma City Thunder, and struggled, but his presence helped Kevin Durant pull out an efficient 33-point, 10-rebound double-double and an Oklahoma City win in their home opener. LeBron James got the Heat back on track with 25 points in a 103-93 win for the Heat over the Washington Wizards. Check out The Shoes That Won Last Night.
