Week 8: Inside the numbers

A quick look at some of the interesting numbers from the Week 8 early games:

  • Ravens rookie QB Joe Flacco had his first career reception, a 43-yard catch from backup QB Troy Smith. It marks the longest reception by a quarterback since Stats, Inc. began tracking the stat in 1991.
  • Cowboys WR Roy Williams recorded his first career TD with Dallas, but DE DeMarcus Ware ended his NFL-record tying streak of 10 consecutive games with a sack.
  • In a game where the Patriots had no penalties for the first time in franchise history, WR Randy Moss recorded his 58th career 100-yard receiving game (third all-time), and Rams rookie WR Donnie Avery had his first career 100-yard game.
  • Andy Reid became the 37th head coach to reach 100 career wins in Philadelphia’s 27-14 win over Atlanta. He is now 10-0 in his career after a bye week. QB Donovan McNabb became the 8th QB in NFL history with 3,000 career rushing yards. … Falcons WR Roddy White had his third straight game with 100-plus yards and at least one TD.
