5 NFL Stats to Know Through Week 11
Week 11 of the NFL season was not short of outstanding performances, both from individuals and teams.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams closed out the week with a 54-51 barn-burner, scoring the third-most points in a game in NFL history and the most ever on Monday Night Football. The Chiefs are just the second team since 1940 to lose two games in a season in which they put up 40-plus points in the losses.
Philip Rivers tossed his 89th touchdown pass to tight end Antonio Gates in the Los Angeles Chargers' loss to the Denver Broncos. The only quarterback-to-pass catcher partnership with more scores in NFL history is Peyton Manning to Marvin Harrison, a duo that hooked up 112 times.
After scoring twice on Sunday, Adrian Peterson passed John Riggins on the all-time list for most rushing touchdowns. Peterson now has 105 rushing scores, just one behind the great Jim Brown.
