The NFL Network stats department sent over some numbers on Week 6. Here’s a look:
- Saints RB Reggie Bush had three receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s 34-3 rout of the Raiders, giving him 202 career receptions to equal the NFL mark for fastest to reach 200 receptions. Bush ties Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin, who had 204 receptions in his first 34 games. Bush scored three touchdowns on Sunday and now leads the NFL with eight TDs (two rushing, three receiving and three punt returns), and entered the week leading the league with 41 receptions.
- Four of Sunday’s eight early games were decided in the final 10 seconds of regulation. That marks 27 fourth-quarter comebacks this season in 81 games, an impressive 33 percent of the matchups. NFL.com’s Gil Brandt says it’s the first time since the merger in 1970 that as many as four games have been decided in that fashion.
- Falcons rookie QB Matt Ryan had his first career 300-yard game, completing 22 of 30 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown in a 22-20 comeback win over the Bears. The Falcons (4-2) tied their victory total from last season.
- Texans QB Matt Schaub had a career-high 379 passing yards (22-of-42, TD, two INTs) and WR Andre Johnson had a career-high 178 receiving yards in Houston’s comeback win over Miami.
- Vikings DT Kevin Williams registered a career-high four sacks against Detroit.
- Colts WR Marvin Harrison finished with three receptions for 83 yards and two touchdowns, giving him 126 for his career. That moves Harrison past Walter Payton and into a tie for ninth all-time with Jim Brown.
