SEVEN FROM SUNDAY – WEEK 2

 

A look at seven statistical highlights from games played at 1:00 p.m. ET and 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, September 17, the second week of the 2017 season.

 

  • New England quarterback TOM BRADY completed 30 of 39 passes (76.9 percent) for 447 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 139.6 passer rating in the Patriots’ 36-20 win at New Orleans. Brady has 52 career games with at least three touchdown passes and no interceptions, passing PEYTON MANNING (51) for the most such performances in NFL history.

 

Brady (61,849 passing yards and 456 touchdown passes) and New Orleans quarterback DREW BREES(66,402 and 466) entered the game with a combined 128,251 passing yards and 922 touchdown passes.Both totals are the most in NFL history for opposing starting quarterbacks in a game.

 

  • Kansas City rookie running back KAREEM HUNT rushed for two touchdowns in the Chiefs’ 27-20 win over Philadelphia. Hunt, who scored three touchdowns (two receiving, one rushing) in his NFL debut last week, is the first player in NFL history to have at least three rushing touchdowns and two receiving touchdowns in his first two career games.

 

Hunt has scored five touchdowns in his first two career games. Only DUTCH STERNAMAN (six) of the 1920 Decatur Staleys has scored more touchdowns in his first two career games.

 

Hunt had a 53-yard rushing touchdown in the win over Philadelphia. Combined with his 78-yard touchdown reception in Week 1, Hunt is the third player in NFL history to record a 50+ yard scrimmage touchdown in each of his first two career games (DUB JONES, 1950 and ALAN AMECHE, 1955).

 

  • Los Angeles Chargers tight end ANTONIO GATES had a touchdown catch in the team’s loss against Miami. Gates has 112 career touchdown catches and passed TONY GONZALEZ (111) for the most receiving touchdowns by a tight end in NFL history.

Roethlisberger has thrown a touchdown pass in 45 consecutive home games, the third-longest streak in NFL history and the longest active streak. Only DREW BREES (60 games) and TOM BRADY (47) have longer streaks all-time.
  • The BALTIMORE RAVENS recorded four interceptions and three sacks in the team’s 24-10 win against Cleveland. The Ravens, who had five sacks and intercepted four passes in Week 1 at Cincinnati, are the only team with at least four interceptions and three sacks in each of its first two games of a season since the sack became an official statistic in 1982.

 

​The Ravens are the third team since 1970 – and the first since the 1992 Pittsburgh Steelers – to have at least four interceptions in each of the first two games of a season. The 1971 Cleveland Browns are the only other team to accomplish the feat since 1970.

 

  • Cleveland tackle JOE THOMAS started his 162nd consecutive game in the Browns’ loss at Baltimore. Thomas, who entered the game having played 9,996 consecutive offensive snaps, reached 10,000 consecutive snaps played on the Browns’ fourth offensive play of the game.

Rays closer Álex Colomé named AL Reliever of the Month for August

 

Milwaukee Brewers closer Corey Knebel has been voted the National League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford for August, and Tampa Bay Rays closer Alex Colomé has been voted the American League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford for August.

The National League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford, Corey Knebel, and the American League Reliever of the Month presented by the Hartford, Alex Colomé, will each receive a specially designed plaque, suitably engraved, for their accomplishments. This is the inaugural season of the Reliever of the Month Awards presented by The Hartford. The Hartford, the Official Business Insurance & Employee Benefits Sponsor of MLB, has presented baseball’s annual Relievers of the Year Awards since 2015. The 2017 Relievers of the Year presented by The Hartford will again be presented during the World Series.

Colomé made 12 appearances for the Rays and converted each of his 10 save opportunities en route to claiming his first career Reliever of the Month Award. Alex, who earned his first AllStar selection last season, surrendered one run with 13 strikeouts, just one walk and five hits allowed. The veteran right-hander did not permit a home run during his excellent month, and paced the AL in saves. Alex began his award-winning month in grand fashion, converting each of his five saves with four punchouts without permitting a hit and yielding just a single walk. On Wednesday night against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium, the Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic native extended his Major League lead with his 40th save of the season. On pace for 48 saves, the 28-year-old is attempting to become the first pitcher in franchise history to pace the Majors in saves. In addition, Colomé became the sixth reliever in Club history to reach the 40-save milestone, joining his teammate Brad Boxberger (41 in 2015), Rodney (48 in 2012), Rafael Soriano (45 in 2010), Danys Baez (41 in 2005) and Roberto Hernández (43 in 1999). Rodney holds the current team record with 48 saves during his 2012 All-Star campaign. The Rays enter play today with a 68-69 record (.496) and trail the Minnesota Twins by 4.0 games for the second AL Wild Card spot.

Closer Ken Giles (11 G, 0.64 ERA, 5 SV, 23 SO) of the Houston Astros was also deserving of attention for monthly honors. The 26-year-old right-hander tossed more than 1.0 inning in four of 11 appearances, logging 2.0 innings in two save appearances (August 13th and August 31st). Additionally, Giles notched at least one strikeout in each appearance during his strong month and enters play today in the midst of a 16-game streak with at least one strikeout. During his impressive stretch, Giles has allowed one earned run on nine hits with 30 strikeouts over 18.1 innings pitched. Chad Green (1-0, 2.84 ERA, 12.2 IP, 15 SO) of the Yankees and Steve Cishek (1-0, 0.00 ERA, 13 G, 12 SO) of the Seattle Mariners also received votes for AL Reliever of the Month.

Milwaukee Brewers closer Corey Knebel has been voted the National League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford for August, and Tampa Bay Rays closer Alex Colomé has been voted the American League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford for August.

Knebel pitched in 15 games during August for the Brewers, converting all 13 of his save opportunities and striking out 21 opposing batters. The hard-throwing right-hander permitted five walks, did not surrender a home run and did not allow an earned run on nine hits over 15.1 innings of work to claim his first career monthly award. The Denton, Texas native enters play today in the midst of a career-best 19-game scoreless streak dating back to July 22nd. Since the impressive run began, Knebel’s ERA dropped 52 points and he enters play today with a 1.25 ERA on the season, the second-lowest mark in the Majors behind two-time All-Star Kenley Jansen (1.21) of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Earlier this season, Knebel established a new Major League record after beginning the 2017 campaign with a strikeout in 45 consecutive appearances (April 3rd – July 15th). Since then, the All-Star reliever has not logged a strikeout in just two other appearances, culminating in a Major League-best 109 punchouts among relievers. The University of Texas product has tallied a strikeout in 62 of 65 appearances on the season, and he owns the third-highest strikeout-per-nine innings ratio in the Majors (15.17) behind Craig Kimbrel (16.45) of the Boston Red Sox and Dellin Betances (15.30) of the New York Yankees. Entering play today, the Brewers sit 4.5 games back of the Chicago Cubs for first place in the NL Central with a 71-65 record (.522).

Others receiving votes for NL Reliever of the Month included closer Brad Ziegler (13 G, 9 SV, 13.0 IP, 6 SO) of the Miami Marlins; closer Fernando Rodney (13 G, 12 SV, 3.00 ERA, 14 SO) of the Arizona Diamondbacks; and Jansen (12 G, 0.75 ERA, 8 SV, 24 SO), June’s NL Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford.

The National League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford, Corey Knebel, and the American League Reliever of the Month presented by the Hartford, Alex Colomé, will each receive a specially designed plaque, suitably engraved, for their accomplishments. This is the inaugural season of the Reliever of the Month Awards presented by The Hartford. The Hartford, the Official Business Insurance & Employee Benefits Sponsor of MLB, has presented baseball’s annual Relievers of the Year Awards since 2015. The 2017 Relievers of the Year presented by The Hartford will again be presented during the World Series.
