SEVEN FROM SUNDAY – WEEK 11
look at seven statistical highlights from games played at 1:00 p.m. ET
and 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 20, the 11th week of the 2016 season.
DALLAS COWBOYS gained 417 total net
yards in the team’s 27-17 win over Baltimore. That marked the team’s eighth consecutive game with at least
400 yards, tied for the longest single-season streak in NFL history (2007 New England
and 2013 Denver). The Cowboys have won
nine consecutive games, the longest single-season winning streak in franchise
rookie quarterback DAK PRESCOTT
passed for 301 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Ravens. Prescott
is the first rookie quarterback in
NFL history to pass for at least 300 yards and multiple touchdowns with no
interceptions in consecutive games. He joined Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (1983) and RUSSELL
WILSON (2012) as the only rookie quarterbacks since 1970 to have multiple
touchdown passes in five consecutive games.
Cowboys rookie running back EZEKIEL ELLIOTT rushed for 97 yards and
leads the NFL with 1,102 rushing yards. Elliott’s 1,102 rushing yards are the third-most in NFL history in a player’s
first 10 games, trailing only Pro Football Hall of Famer ERIC DICKERSON (1,223)
and ADRIAN PETERSON (1,197).
DETROIT LIONS scored 10 unanswered
points in the fourth quarter of the team’s 26-19 come-from-behind victory over
Jacksonville. The Lions, who are the first
team in NFL history to have each of its first 10 games decided by seven points
or fewer, have trailed in the fourth quarter in all 10 games. Detroit
is the first team in NFL history to
have six wins when trailing in the fourth quarter in the team’s first 10 games
of a season.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS defeated San
Francisco 30-17 to improve to 8-2 this season. With their eighth win, the
Patriots are guaranteed at least a .500 record this season. New England is the fifth team in NFL history – and the
first since the 1983-1998 San Francisco 49ers – to have at least 16 consecutive
seasons with a .500 or better record.
Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY threw four touchdown passes and no interceptions against
the 49ers. Brady has 21 career games
with at least four touchdown passes and no interceptions, the most in NFL
history. Including the postseason, Brady now has 199 career victories, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer BRETT
FAVRE for the second-most in NFL history. Brady needs one win to tie PEYTON MANNING (200) for the most
XAVIER RHODES had a 100-yard
interception-return touchdown and CORDARRELLE
PATTERSON had a 104-yard kickoff-return touchdown in the Vikings’ 30-24 win
over Arizona. The Vikings are the first
team since the 1962 Dallas Cowboys to have a 100+ yard interception-return
touchdown and a 100+ yard kickoff-return touchdown in the same game. On
October 14, 1962, the Cowboys’ AMOS
MARSH had a 101-yard kickoff-return touchdown and MIKE GAECHTER had a 100-yard interception-return touchdown in
Dallas’ 41-19 win over Philadelphia.
wide receiver ANTONIO BROWN had
eight catches for 76 yards in the Steelers’ 24-9 win at Cleveland. Brown, who
has 603 career receptions, reached
600 catches in his 96th career game, the fewest games to reach the milestone in
NFL history. Brown surpassed the previous mark held by ANQUAN BOLDIN, who reached 600 receptions in 98 career games.
wide receiver STEVE SMITH, SR. had
eight catches for 99 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens’ loss at Dallas. Smith
has 1,005 career receptions and
became the 14th player in NFL history to reach 1,000 career catches.
Smith is the only player in league
history with at least 1,000 catches (1,005), 1,000 punt-return yards (1,684)
and 2,000 kickoff-return yards (2,371).
with the 2015 season, the NFL adopted a rule change moving the line of
scrimmage on an extra-point kick attempt to the 15-yard line in order to make
it a more competitive play. In today’s games, there have been 11 missed extra-point kick attempts, the
most in a single week since the merger.
