Top 7 Statistical highlights from Week 9 Sunday in the NFL

SEVEN FROM SUNDAYWEEK 9

​A look at seven statistical highlights from games played at 9:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 3, the ninth week of the 2019 season.

  • Houston quarterback DESHAUN WATSON completed 22 of 28 pass attempts (78.6 percent) for 201 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions for a 120.4 rating in the Texans’ 26-3 win over the Jaguars at Wembley Stadium in London.

    Watson is the third quarterback to throw at least two touchdowns and complete at least 75 percent of his passes in an international NFL game, joining TOM BRADY (November 19, 2017) and RYAN FITZPATRICK (October 30, 2011).

    Texans running back CARLOS HYDE totaled 160 rushing yards in the win and joined CHRIS IVORY (166 rushing yards on October 4, 2015) as the only players with at least 150 rushing yards in an international NFL game.

  • Buffalo quarterback JOSH ALLEN recorded a 110.4 passer rating and had both a passing and rushing touchdown in the Bills’ 24-9 victory over Washington.

    Allen, who is in his second NFL season, is the fourth quarterback to record at least 20 passing touchdowns and 12 rushing touchdowns in his first two seasons in league annals, joining STEVE GROGAN (29 passing, 15 rushing), CAM NEWTON (40 passing, 22 rushing) and DAK PRESCOTT (45 passing, 12 rushing).

  • Carolina running back CHRISTIAN McCAFFREY recorded 166 scrimmage yards (146 rushing, 20 receiving) and three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving) in the Panthers’ 30-20 win over Tennessee.

    McCaffrey, who has 1,244 scrimmage yards and 13 touchdowns this season, is the sixth player in NFL history and first since PRIEST HOLMES (2002) with at least 1,200 scrimmage yards and 13 touchdowns in their team’s first eight games of a season.

    Sunday marked McCaffrey’s sixth game of the season with at least 150 scrimmage yards and a touchdown, joining JIM BROWN (1963) as the only players with six such performances in their team’s first eight games of a season in NFL history.

    McCaffrey has seven games with both a rushing and receiving touchdown in his first three seasons, tied with ABNER HAYNES (1960-62) for the second-most such games in a player’s first three seasons in league annals. Only CHUCK FOREMAN (eight games from 1974-75) had more.

  • Oakland rooking running back JOSH JACOBS totaled 120 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the Raiders’ 31-24 win over Detroit. Jacobs is the first rookie since Cincinnati’s ICKEY WOODS (1988) to have at least two rushing touchdowns in three of his first eight career games.

    Rookie tight end FOSTER MOREAU and rookie wide receiver HUNTER RENFROW each recorded a touchdown reception on Sunday. Along with Jacobs’ two touchdowns, the Raiders are the first team since the SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (November 22, 2015) to have rookies score all four touchdowns in a victory.

  • Pittsburgh wide receiver JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER had three receptions, including his 200th career catch, in the Steelers’ 26-24 win over the Colts.

    At 22 years and 346 days old, Smith-Schuster is the first player to record 200 career receptions before his 23rd birthday in NFL history. The previous youngest player to reach 200 career receptions was BRANDIN COOKS (23 years and 77 days old).

  • Kansas City wide receiver TYREEK HILL recorded six catches for 140 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown catch, in the Chiefs’ 26-23 win over Minnesota.

    Hill, who is in his fourth season, became the sixth player in NFL history to record at least 20 touchdowns of at least 40 yards in his first four seasons. The other five players are all enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame: BOB HAYES (24 touchdowns of at least 40 yards), RANDY MOSS (23), JERRY RICE (21), LANCE ALWORTH (20) and GALE SAYERS (20).

    Chiefs kicker HARRISON BUTKER made a game-tying 54-yard field goal with 2:30 remaining and converted a game-winning 44-yard attempt as time expired in the victory, becoming the first kicker since MARTIN GRAMATICA (October 27, 2002) to make a game-tying field goal of at least 50 yards and a field goal of at least 40 yards to put his team ahead for good with both coming in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter.

Only TOM BRADY (100) had more.

      Tampa Bay wide receiver MIKE EVANS had 12 receptions for 180 yards and a touchdown in Week 9. He joins AJ GREEN (2016) and WES WELKER (2011) as the only players with at least eight receptions, 150 receiving yards and a touchdown in three of his team’s first eight games of a season in NFL history.

    • Denver quarterback BRANDON ALLEN, making his first career start, threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end NOAH FANT in the Broncos’ 24-19 win against Cleveland.

      Allen is the first quarterback with a touchdown pass of at least 75 yards in his first career start since ROBERT GRIFFIN III (88-yard touchdown pass on September 9, 2012). Fant is the first rookie tight end with a touchdown reception of at least 75 yards since TYJI ARMSTRONG on December 6, 1992 (81-yard touchdown catch).

NFL offering Fans a chance to host Lombardi Trophy in their Hometown

The NFL to Bring The Lombardi Trophy and a Game Party Weekend to a Fan’s Hometown as part of #NFL100 Experiences of a Lifetime

Since its initial naming in 1970, the Vince Lombardi Trophy has been hoisted each season by the Super Bowl champion. Now, the famed championship trophy will make the unprecedented path to one lucky NFL fan’s hometown before it ultimately awaits the winning team’s embrace at Super Bowl LIV in Miami.

The NFL announced today its latest #NFL100 Experience of a Lifetime, “Lombardi in Your Hometown,” which will send the Vince Lombardi Trophy to one winner’s hometown during NFL Wild Card weekend. There, the trophy will be the guest of honor at a watch party for the winner and their friends, family, and neighbors.

The contest is part of a fan-focused series of extraordinary experiences during the NFL’s 100th Season that pay tribute to the generations of fans, players, and communities that built and continue to support the league today.

“Long before his last name symbolized football greatness, my grandfather taught the core belief that the group is greater than the individual and that people grow stronger together through football,” said Joe Lombardi, assistant coach with the New Orleans Saints and grandson of the famed Packers coach. “My family is proud that the Lombardi trophy not only serves to crown Super Bowl champions, but will also serve to bring a special set of fans together in one winner’s hometown.”

To enter, fans can post a picture or video demonstrating what they’ve done to deserve a chance to have the Vince Lombardi Trophy in their hometown and tag @NFL and #NFL100Contest. The contest is live now through November 12 (11:59:59 p.m. ET). For official rules, visit NFL.com/100/contests.

“Our centennial celebration gave us an opportunity to bring the NFL’s most iconic symbol of team success directly to a group of fans for the first time in the league’s 100-year history,” said Pete Abitante, NFL VP of Special Projects. “This once-in-a-century experience will help launch our 2019 season playoffs as we continue to celebrate our fans all the way to Super Bowl LIV in Miami.”
