The Kansas City Chiefs had 10 sacks against Terrelle Pryor & company. Believe it or not, that’s not even a record. The NFL record for most sacks by one team in a single game is 12, and has been set by several teams: Cowboys (1966), Cardinals (1980), Bears (1984), Cowboys (1985), and the Giants (2007)
Speaking of Sacks, the NFL record by one team belongs to the 1984 Chicago Bears, who finished with 72. Currently, the Chiefs sit at 31, and with their average of just over 5 sacks/game, they’re on pace to shatter the old record. Kansas City Shuffle?
Kiko Alonso, rookie linebacker of the Bills, finished the game against the Bengals with 22 tackles.
Welcome back Brandon Jacobs!? The 31-year old rattled off 106 yards on 22 carries (4.8 average), including 2 touchdowns in a loss to the Bears.
400 Yard Passer Club: NONE
Through 6 games, these days have failed to crack over 100 points this season: Pittsburgh (88), Jacksonville (70), and Tampa Bay (64). On the flip side, the New York Giants are the only team to surrender over 200 points this year, with 209. Jacksonville is a close runner-up at 198.
After the noon games concluded, every single home team won after that.
If you can believe this, the three lowest quarterbacks on the stat sheet that passed for under 200 yards in Week 7 won their respective games. Tony Romo (170), Alex Smith (128), and Sam Bradford (117).
If the playoffs started this week, here’s how it would shape up:
- AFC: (1) KC, (2) NE, (3) CIN, (4) IND, (5) DEN, (6) MIA
- NFC: (1) NO, (2) SEA, (3) DET, (4) DAL, (5) SF, (6) CHI
- KC takes over the #1 spot in the AFC, and the Broncos go from #1 to #5. How important is winning your divison?
