-- A Huffington Post contributor repeatedly tweeted to media outlets on Sunday accusing Tom Brady of cheating with a uniform violation during the Patriots’ win over the Jets.

With single-digit temperatures, Brady was wearing a scuba suit under his uniform and Barbara Bruno, a self-described NFL commentator and analyst, copied and pasted the same tweet and sent it to the league and numerous teams, analysts and media outlets.

“Tom Brady is potentially involution of the NFL uniform code unless he got formal permission from the league to wear that dive suit. Section 4 last sentence first paragraph,” Bruno posted before tweeting, “Tom Brady possible violation of uniform code Section 4 Article 1 last sentence. Did NFL give him that dive suit? Did he get formal permission to wear it?” to a number of accounts.

The Jaguars, Bill Simmons, the NFL, Gary Myers and Jason La Canfora were among the large number of recipients.

Though none of these accounts responded, there were some other people who did.

-- In his obituary published last week, an Ohio man blamed the Browns for his death.

Paul Stark died last Wednesday after a brief illness, which he said was “exacerbated by the hopeless condition of the Cleveland Browns.”

The Browns went 0-16 this season. They went 1-15 last season.

Stark was 80. His obituary also stated he “passed just before the Browns were prepared to turn the corner.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It felt good. It’s like any other team. It’s like [the media> going and reporting for a different news channel or different newspaper. This is God’s plan and God’s doing. I’m just a receiver of what he has planned. I’m 39 years old and I’m still playing, so I’m extremely blessed.” -- James Harrison, on his Patriots debut on Sunday
