3 Safeties were scored Sunday, in the first several minutes of play mind you. 2011 had 10, 2012 had 13 safeties. Are we witnessing an anomaly?

Prior to the craziness of Lesean McCoy (184 rush yards), Terrelle Pryor was your leading rusher after Sunday with 112 yards. That’s right, the Quarterback from Oakland. Shane Vereen was the only other 100 yard rusher on the week. Rough week to be a running back.

Anquan Boldin finished with 208 receiving yards against the Packers. It was almost a decade to the day that he last went over 200 yards (9/7/03 – 217 yards, AZ @ DET)

400 Yard Passing Club: Peyton Manning (462), Eli Manning (450), Colin Kaepernick (412)

Robbie Gould only had 1 Field Goal Attempt Sunday against the Bengals, and converted it. From 58 Yards. In Solider Field. Think about that for a second.

Pittsburgh (195) & Jacksonville (175) both failed to crack 200 total yards of offense Sunday.

Robert Malone, Punter for the Jets, was credited with an 84 yard punt against the Bucs Sunday against the Bucs.

There’s never been a 28-2 score in the NFL, ever.

21 defensive players accounted for 10 or more tackles in Week 1. LaRon Landry (IND), Jerod Mayo (NE), and Perry Riley (WSH) headed up that list. with 15.
