Week 3 in the NFL is upon us! What to Look For

COMEBACKS ARE EN VOGUE: The season’s first two weeks have proven that insurance points are important. Fans, coaches and players, if your team is down, help yourself to a slice of hope. In 32 games to date, 11 have featured a team coming from behind in the second half to win, including seven teams that trailed at halftime. Six of those games have seen a team win after erasing a fourth-quarter deficit. The SEATTLE SEAHAWKS have overcome a second-half deficit in each of their two victories. And those numbers don’t include the exciting Week 1 comebacks by the INDIANAPOLIS COLTS and ARIZONA CARDINALS, who sent their respective games to overtime. Eight games have had teams come back to win or tie after trailing in the fourth quarter.

– NFL –

MILESTONE FRANCHISE WINS: Three clubs can reach milestone victories in their franchise histories this week. Both the DENVER BRONCOS and the MINNESOTA VIKINGS can record their 500th wins, including postseason. Among the original eight franchises that launched the American Football League in 1960, Denver would become the second to reach 500 wins, as only the Boston/New England Patriots (539) have eclipsed that landmark. The CAROLINA PANTHERS, who began in 1995, bid for the 200th win in franchise history, including postseason.

– NFL –

PROLIFIC POINT DIFFERENTIAL: The NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS enter Week 3 having outscored opponents by 73 points, 76-3. With a point-differential of at least 24 points this week, their season-opening point-differential would reach comparisons to teams as old as the NFL itself. Defensively speaking, should the Patriots allow nine or fewer points, they’d also establish the fewest points allowed over a season’s initial three games in the Super Bowl era.

The highest point-differentials by a team through a season’s first three games in NFL history:

TEAM SEASON POINTS SCORED POINTS ALLOWED POINT DIFF
Rock Island Independents 1920 119 0 +119
Buffalo All-Americans 1921 110 0 +110
Dallas Cowboys 1968 132 33 +99
Buffalo All-Americans 1920 111 13 +98
Canton Bulldogs 1920 97 0 +97

 

The fewest points allowed through a season’s first three games during the Super Bowl era (1966-present):

TEAM SEASON POINTS ALLOWED SEASON RESULT
Denver Broncos 2009 16 Missed playoffs
Indianapolis Colts 2005 16 AFC Divisional playoffs
Seattle Seahawks 2004 13 NFC Wild Card playoffs
Green Bay Packers 2001 13 NFC Divisional playoffs
Philadelphia Eagles 1980 16 Lost Super Bowl XV

TOUCHDOWN MAKER: Cleveland quarterback BAKER MAYFIELD needs a touchdown pass on Sunday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams (8:20 PM ET, NBC) to reach historic company. He enters the week having thrown for a touchdown in each of his first 15 NFL starts, tied with BRAD JOHNSON for the second-longest streak to begin a career (since at least 1950). Only Pro Football Hall of Famer KURT WARNER authored a longer career-opening streak, throwing for a touchdown in his first 23 NFL starts.

– NFL –

SOMETHING HAS TO GIVE: In the Super Bowl era, only two players over the first two games of a season have started with at least seven TD passes, no interceptions and a completion percentage of 70 or higher. Those two players, LAMAR JACKSON and PATRICK MAHOMES, meet on Sunday (BALTIMORE at KANSAS CITY, 1:00 PM ET, CBS). With three more TD passes and no interceptions against the Ravens, Mahomes can join even more elite company.

The players with at least three touchdown passes and no interceptions in each of their team’s first three games to begin a season in NFL history:

 

PLAYER TEAM SEASON
Patrick Mahomes Kansas City 2018
Peyton Manning Indianapolis 2010
     
Patrick Mahomes Kansas City 2019*

MAHOMES REACHES 20 GAMES AT HISTORIC PACE: PATRICK MAHOMES plays his 20th NFL game on Sunday. No player has ever had more passing yards (6,202) or passing touchdowns (57), or a higher passer rating (114.5, minimum 100 attempts) over his first 20 games – and Mahomes has established those marks in just 19 contests. With 300 yards this week, he can break Pro Football Hall of Famer KURT WARNER’s mark of most 300-yard passing games over a player’s first 20 games.

 

The players with the most games of at least 300 pass yards in their first 20 career games in NFL history:

PRESCOTT EYES HISTORIC FOURTH STRAIGHT START: Dallas quarterback DAK PRESCOTT has picked up where he left off last season and has authored two impressive efforts to lead the Cowboys to a 2-0 start. This week at home vs. Miami in the NFL100 Game of the Week (1:00 PM ET, FOX), Prescott can do something only two players have ever done: Record at least four consecutive games with three-plus touchdown passes and a 120-or-better passer rating.

 

The players with the most consecutive games with at least three touchdown passes and a passer rating of 120 or higher in NFL history:

RIVERS REMAINS: Los Angeles Chargers quarterback PHILIP RIVERS (55,282) last week became just the eighth player in NFL history to reach 55,000 career passing yards. This week, he can climb another prestigious list in NFL history. With 300 yards passing at home vs. Houston (4:25 PM ET, CBS), Rivers (63) will surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (63) for sole possession of fourth on the NFL’s all-time list of 300-yard passing games, trailing only DREW BREES (116), PEYTON MANNING (93) and TOM BRADY (88).

MILESTONE COACHING WINS: Kansas City head coach ANDY REID this week leads the Chiefs into their home-opener against 2-0 Baltimore Sunday (1:00 PM ET, CBS). Reid (209-138-1) needs a victory to surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer CHUCK NOLL (209-156-1) for sole possession of sixth place on the NFL’s all-time wins list, including postseason.

 

The most wins by an NFL head coach, all-time, including postseason:

#Active    *From 1920-71, tie games were not included in winning percentage.

Last week, Seattle’s PETE CARROLL earned his 100th win with the Seahawks and became just the fifth active head coach to achieve that mark with his current club. He joined BILL BELICHICK (257 with New England), MIKE TOMLIN (133 with Pittsburgh), SEAN PAYTON (127 with New Orleans) and JOHN HARBAUGH (116 with Baltimore).

 

Finally, Oakland’s JON GRUDEN has an opportunity Sunday to improve his regular-season record against Minnesota to 5-0 and become just the second active head coach with an undefeated record against a single opponent (minimum five games). Over his career, ANDY REID has a 7-0 mark against the Cleveland Browns.

 

The best regular-season records among active head coaches against a single opponent, minimum five games:

DEFENSIVE STALWARTS & THE CENTURY MARK: Three players entered this season nearing their 100th career sacks. Tennessee’s CAMERON WAKE, who now owns 100.5 sacks, was the first to reach the mark in Week 1. Denver’s VON MILLER (98) needs just two more, and Houston’s J.J. WATT (92) stands eight away.

SAQUON WITHIN SIGHT OF 2,500: New York Giants running back SAQUON BARKLEY (18 games) stands just 198 scrimmage yards from the 2,500 plateau, and he could become among the fastest in NFL history to get there. Barkley enters the week with 2,302 scrimmage yards (1,534 rushing, 768 receiving). Barkley also needs at least 100 scrimmage yards in the Giants’ game at Tampa Bay (4:05 PM ET, FOX) to match the NFL’s most games of 100-plus scrimmage yards over a player’s first 20 games (EDGERRIN JAMES, 16 games) – and Barkley has played only 18 games entering this week.

HARD TO KEEP UP WITH THIS JONES: Atlanta wide receiver JULIO JONES stands just 132 receiving yards from 11,000 during his career.

NFL, Hispanic Heritage Foundation and Nationwide, Team for Ninth Annual NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards

 

 

The National Football League and its teams will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a series of special events during Hispanic Heritage Month.

The NFL, Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) and Nationwide, official sponsor of the NFL, have partnered for the ninth annual NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards.  The awards recognize the contributions of Hispanic leaders in each NFL market.

Each award recipient will be recognized at a game or event hosted by their local NFL team.  With support from Nationwide, each recipient will select an organization of their choice that serves the local Hispanic community to receive a $2,000 donation.

Now in its third year, Nationwide’s support of the Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards continues to demonstrate the company’s commitment to the Hispanic community. In addition to Nationwide’s partnership with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, the Columbus-based insurance and financial services company also has partnerships with Latina Style, Unidos US, the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Association of Latino Professionals For America, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility and Prospanica. The sponsorship of the Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards aligns with Nationwide’s goal of partnering with organizations that share the company’s values of improving the lives of others and giving back to the community.

“By partnering with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation and Nationwide, we are given an amazing opportunity to shine a bright light on individuals who are wholeheartedly impacting their local communities,” said Marissa Fernandez, NFL Vice President of Marketing Strategy & Fan Development. “Our goal is to continually support and acknowledge the positive efforts of each leader, while also empowering others to spread kindness and generosity in their own community.”

“We are thrilled to partner with the NFL and Nationwide to honor Hispanic leaders who are making an impact on communities all over America,” said Jose Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of Hispanic Heritage Foundation. “It is important to highlight their leadership not only in the traditional Latino regions, but in recent-growing areas as well. Together with the NFL and Nationwide, we made sure that beyond the recognition there is an investment in local nonprofits. There is no better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month than to make a difference in the Latino community year-round.”

“Nationwide is excited to continue to partner with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation and the National Football League to once again present this year’s Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards,” said Jennifer MacKenzie, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Nationwide. “Nationwide takes pride in providing resources, support and service to Hispanic consumers and business owners across the country. We look forward to celebrating the charitable efforts of Hispanic leaders in all 32 NFL markets during Hispanic Heritage Month.”

The theme of the NFL’s Hispanic Heritage Month campaign is “Feel the Orgullo.”  In Spanish, the word “orgullo” means pride.  Latino players, fans, and coaches have a strong sense of pride not only in their culture but in their team and the NFL.  During Hispanic Heritage Month, the NFL and its 32 teams amplify the rich history, heritage and tradition of Latinos, and honor the positive impact they have had on the game and country.

Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, fans can visit www.NFL.com/HispanicHeritage for a look at the personal stories of Hispanic players, past and present, who have left a lasting legacy on the NFL.  NFL teams will enhance the celebration with local efforts throughout the month including local community outreach in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
