With the start of the 2012 season, NFL history — on both sides of the ball — is in the making. Watch how players and teams etched their way into record books in Week 1.
Move over, Rod Woodson. Ed Reed is now the all-time leader in interception return yards with 1,497.
In his return to the NFL, the Broncos quarterback threw his 400th and 401st touchdown passes. Manning is now third on the Passing TD Leaders list behind Brett Farve (#1) and Dan Marino (#2).
New England Patriots
With a 34-13 defeat of the Tennessee Titans, the New England Patriots have won their last 9 season opening games, the longest current winning streak in the NFL.
Two touchdown passes in the game put Tom Brady fifth on the Passing TD Leaders list. His current tally is 302.
The San Francisco 49ers kicker tied the NFL record for longest field goal with a 63-yard kick. Tom Dempsey, Jason Elam and Sebastian Janikowski also have claim to this feat.
The Detroit Lions quarterback passed for 350+ yards in 4 consecutive games. The only other quarterback to do so is Drew Brees.
