Week 14 notable nuggets

With an assist from the NFL Network research crew, here’s a look at some of the notable numbers and top performances of Week 14:

Bills 13, Browns 6

Ryan Fitzpatrick had his 14th straight game with a passing touchdown, the second-longest streak in franchise history behind Jim Kelly (18 straight from 1986-87).

Peyton Hillis has 1,070 rushing yards and 57 receptions this season, becoming the ninth player in franchise history to rush for 1,000-plus yards in a season. He joined Mike Pruitt in 1980 and 1981 as only Browns players with 1,000 yards and 50 or more receptions in a season.

Steelers 23, Bengals 7

Hines Ward moved into 10th place all-time in receptions (944), passing Art Monk (940).

Troy Polamalu recorded two more interceptions, and the Steelers are 21-3 when he records an interception (5-0 this season).

Falcons 31, Panthers 10

Roddy White now has 1,219 yards this season, the first player in franchise history with three seasons with 1,200-plus receiving yards.

Lions 7, Packers 3

Congrats to the Lions, who snapped a 19-game divisional losing streak against the Packers. It was their first win versus the NFC North since Oct. 28, 2007 vs. the Bears.

Saints 31, Rams 13

Drew Brees became the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for at least 20,000 yards and 150 touchdowns in the first five seasons with a new team. 

Steven Jackson has 1,081 rushing yards on the season and is the first player in franchise history to rush for at least 1,000 yards in six consecutive seasons. 

Jaguars 38, Raiders 31

The Jaguars had two 100-yard rushers for the third time in franchise history behind Maurice Jones-Drew (101 yards) and Rashad Jennings (109 yards).

Darren McFadden had himself a day. He had a career high in yards from scrimmage (209), his second career game with both a rushing TD and a receiving TD (both this season) and became the third player since 1950 with two rushing TDs of 35-plus yards and a receiving TD of 60-plus yards in the same game. He is also the first Raider with a 50+ yard TD run and a 50+ yard TD reception in the same game since Clem Daniels in 1963.

Patriots 36, Bears 7

The Patriots are the first team since 1970 with no turnovers in five straight games, and the first team in NFL history with 30-plus and n0 turnovers in five straight games.

Bill Belichick notched his 174th career win as NFL head coach, including playoffs, tying Mike Holmgren for 10th all-time.

Tom Brady had his sixth straight game with two or more passing TDs and no INTs to tie Don Meredith’s NFL record from 1965-66.

Brady is the only player with three straight games with 300-plus passing yards, two or more touchdowns and no interceptions since 1950. He’s actually done it twice, al;so in 2007.

Brady and Belichick have 108 wins together, passing Terry Bradshaw and Chuck Noll for the second-most wins by a QB-head coach tandem behind only Dan MarinoDon Shula’s 116 wins.

Cardinals 43, Broncos 13

On his first career rushing attempt, Jay Feeley became the fourth kicker since 1950 with a rushing TD. The last to do it? Tim Seder, who had an 8-yard score for the Cowboys against the Raiders in 2001. Feeley wasn’t too shabby kicking, either. He tied his career high with his third career five FG game.

Buccaneers 17, Redskins 16

Donovan McNabb recorded his 12th straight game with a passing TD, the longest streak by a Redskins player since Joe Theismann had 15 straight games from 1984-85.

49ers 40, Seahawks 21

Happy returns: Seahawks KR Leon Washington had a 92-yard kickoff return TD, his seventh career return which is now second most all-time, one behind Joshua Cribbs’ NFL record. It was his third kickoff return TD this season.
