New Orleans, led by running backs MARK INGRAM (131 rushing yards, three touchdowns) and rookie ALVIN KAMARA (106 rushing yards, one touchdown), rushed for 298 yards and a franchise-record six touchdowns in the victory. New Orleans became the fifth team – and the first since 1957 (Cleveland Browns, November 24, 1957) – in NFL history (including the postseason) to rush for at least 295 yards and six touchdowns in a single game.

Top 7 statistical highlights from Week 10 Sunday in the NFL

SEVEN FROM SUNDAY – WEEK 10​

A look at seven statistical highlights from games played at 1:00 p.m. ET and 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 12, the 10th week of the 2017 season.

  • Atlanta defensive end ADRIAN CLAYBORN recorded a career-high six sacks, forced two fumbles and recovered a fumble in the Falcons’ 27-7 win against Dallas.

Clayborn’s six sacks are a single-game franchise record (CHUCK SMITH, five on October 12, 1997) and are tied for the second-most in a game since the individual sack became an official statistic in 1982. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer DERRICK THOMAS (seven on November 11, 1990) had more sacks in a single game.

Atlanta quarterback MATT RYAN completed 22 of 29 passes (75.9 percent) for 215 yards with two touchdowns for a 104.8 passer rating in the team’s win.

Ryan, who has 40,073 passing yards in 151 career games, reached 40,000 career passing yards in the fewest games in NFL history, surpassing the previous record held by DREW BREES (152).

 

  • The NEW ORLEANS SAINTS defeated Buffalo 47-10 to improve to 7-2. The Saints, who have won seven consecutive games after starting 0-2, are the second team in the Super Bowl era to win its next seven games immediately following an 0-2 start. The other team to accomplish the feat – 1993 Dallas Cowboys – won the Super Bowl in that season.

The Saints rushed for 298 yards and a franchise-record six touchdowns against the Bills. New Orleans is thefifth team in NFL history – including the postseason – to rush for at least 295 yards and six touchdowns in a single game, joining the 1940 Chicago Bears (December 8, 1940, NFL Championship), 1950 New York Giants (November 19, 1950), 1951 Los Angeles Rams (November 18, 1951) and 1957 Cleveland Browns (November 24, 1957).

New Orleans running back MARK INGRAM rushed for 131 yards and three touchdowns in today’s victory,joining GEORGE ROGERS (November 8, 1981) and RICKY WILLIAMS (October 22, 2000) as the only Saints players to rush for at least 130 yards and three touchdowns in a game.

  • Los Angeles Rams quarterback JARED GOFF completed 25 of 37 passes (67.6 percent) for 355 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 125.4 passer rating in the Rams’ 33-7 win over Houston. Goff, who passed for 311 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a 146.8 passer rating last week, is thefirst player in franchise history to pass for at least 300 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in consecutive games.
    Goff threw a 94-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver ROBERT WOODS which is the third-longest offensive play from scrimmage in franchise history and the longest since 1964 (95-yard touchdown pass from BILL MUNSON to BUCKY POPE on December 13, 1964).
  • Detroit quarterback MATTHEW STAFFORD threw three touchdown passes – including the game-winning score to tight end ERIC EBRON with 10:46 remaining in the fourth quarter – in the Lions’ 38-24 win over Cleveland.

The performance marked Stafford’s 30th career game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime. Among players who made their NFL debut since 1970, Stafford has reached 30 such game-winning drives in the fewest number of career games (118).

  • Pittsburgh rookie wide receiver JU JU SMITH-SCHUSTER had five catches for 97 yards with a touchdown and Indianapolis kicker ADAM VINATIERI scored five points (one field goal and two PATs) in the Steelers’ 20-17 win against the Colts.

Sunday’s contest marked the first time in NFL history that a player under the age of 21 (Smith-Schuster, 20 years old) and a player over the age of 40 (Vinatieri, 44 years old) each scored a point in the same game.

  • Jacksonville running back COREY GRANT rushed for a 56-yard touchdown – on a fake punt – on fourth down in the Jaguars’ 20-17 overtime win against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Grant, who had a 58-yard fourth-down run on a fake punt in Week 3, has two runs of at least 50 yards on fourth down this season, which is as many as all other active players have combined in their careers. Buffalo’s LE SEAN MC COY and Kansas City’s ALBERT WILSON each have one such run.

  • Minnesota wide receiver ADAM THIELEN had eight catches for 166 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings’ 38-30 win at Washington. Thielen, who was not drafted out of Minnesota State in 2013, has three career games with at least 150 receiving yards, the most among active players who went undrafted. Seattle’s DOUG BALDWIN (two) is the only other active undrafted player with multiple 150+ yard receiving games.
