NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE: NEWS & NOTES

 

(courtesy of NFLmedia.com)

Here’s the latest news, information and milestones from the National Football League.

 

***When Kansas City defeated Green Bay, 19-14, handing the Packers their first loss of the season, dropping them to 13-1. It was Romeo Crennel’s first game as the Chiefs’ head coach. That ended Green Bay’s 15-game regular-season winning streak, the longest streak ended by a head coach in his NFL debut for a team.

The previous mark was held by Pro Football Hall of Famer Paul Brown, whose Browns defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, winners of their past eight games in 1949, in Cleveland’s first game as an NFL team on September 16, 1950.

 

***The Detroit Lions drove 98 yards in the final minutes of their game in Week 15 at Oakland and scored a touchdown with 39 seconds remaining to top off the comeback win. Detroit QB Matthew Stafford passed for 391 yards and four touchdowns and wide receiver Calvin Johnson caught nine balls for 214 yards and two touchdowns. The two hooked up on the game-winning TD from six yards out.

Stafford at 23 years, 10 months old has passed for 4,145 yards and a team-record 33 touchdowns and is the second youngest QB in NFL history with at least 4,000 passing yards and 30 TD passes in a season behind Hall of Fame QB Dan Marino from 1984.

***San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has surpassed 4,000 yards (4,015) for the fourth straight season. He joins Peyton Manning and Drew Brees as the only QB’s in NFL history to pass for 4,000+ yards in at least four consecutive seasons.

***Philadelphia Eagles RB Le Sean Mc Coy leads the NFL with 20 TD’s, 17 rushing, 3 receiving and passed Pro Football Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren who had 18 in 1945 for the most in a season in franchise history. That was the longest-standing single-season club TD mark in the NFL. The current record now belongs to John David Crow of the Cardinals in 1962. He scored three TD’s against the New York Jets in Week 15.

***In the Cowboys Week 15 win over Tampa Bay, 31-15, QB Tony Romo became the first quarterback in team history to throw three touchdowns and run for another in the first half of a game. Romo, who made his 75th career start, passed for 249 yards and his 20,283 passing yards are the the third-most for any player in NFL history through his first 75 starts, joining Hall of Famer Dan Marino, 20,492 and Kurt Warner 20,305.

***The Saints defeated Minnesota in Week 15, 42-20. In the contest Drew Brees became the first player in NFL history to complete 80+ percent of his passes (32 of 40, 80 percent) and throw for at least 400 yards (412) and five touchdowns with no interceptions in a game. It marked his 11th 300-yard passing game of 2011, the most in a single season all-time. Brees has 4,780 yards, joining Peyton Manning as the only QB’s to pass for at least 4,500 yards in three different seasons and needs 305 yards to set the single-season passing record set by Pro Football Hall of Fame QB Dan Marino’s 5,084.

Aaron Rodgers is making Green Bay fans forget about that traitor Brett Favre with each and every win on the football field. More now than ever since the Packers are heading to the Super Bowl.

Rodgers ran for a touchdown and made a touchdown-saving tackle in leading Green Bay to face the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Packers played an all-around game of offense, defense, shutting down Bears punt returner Devin Hester.

In the 182nd meeting in the series, Green Bay won 21-14 over the Chicago Bears.

The Packers are 13-6 and had to win all of its playoff games away from Lambeau Field, at Philadelphia, at Atlanta and now Chicago to get to the Big Game in Dallas.

Rodgers’ counterpart at QB, Jay Cutler, left the game due a knee injury in the third period, but he not performing well anyway.

His backup Todd Collins was inefficient as well.

The best QB for the Bears was third-stringer Caleb Hanie and he added life to the team.

Hanie rallied the Bears for a touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7 after Chester Taylor’s 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter.

But Hanie also gave the Packers a chance to add the winning touchdown by throwing a pass to Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji, who rumbled 18 yards for a TD and a 21-7 lead.

Hanie then threw a touchdown to Earl Bennett of 35-yards and it was 21-14 with 4:43 to go.  But the Bears chance to tie ended when Hanie threw another interception by Sam Shields and that was the game.

Rodgers threw 244 yards with two interceptions and he led The Pack to a quick 14-0 lead.
