Wildest NFL Stats From Week 12

Good company

Mike White, who threw for 311 yards and three touchdowns while completing 79% of his passes in the Jets’ win over the Bears, joins Kurt Warner as the second quarterback in NFL history with multiple games of 300 passing yards, three TD passes and a completion percentage of 75 or higher in his first four career starts.

One-Man Wrecking Crew

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa had more passing yards (299) than the Texans had total net yards of offense (210).

Rush to Judgment

Led by Jalen Hurts (157 rushing yards) and Miles Sanders (143), the Eagles rushed for 363 yards against the Packers Sunday night, the eighth-most in a single game by any team in the Super Bowl era and the second-most since 2007. Hurts’ 157 now ranks as the fifth-most by a quarterback in the Super Bowl era.

Unfamiliar Territory

Tom Brady is guaranteed to finish with the most losses he’s had in a regular season since 2009, when his Patriots won the AFC East with a 10-6 record. The Buccaneers lead the NFC South at 5-6.

In Total Command

The Commanders (7-5) are the fifth team since 2010 to have at least seven wins through their first 12 games of a season after starting 1-4. Since week 5 they have multiple three-game win streaks, a feat they haven’t accomplished since 2005.

Top Chief

Travis Kelce has 9,918 receiving yards in his first 10 seasons and surpassed Tony Gonzalez (9,882) for the most receiving yards by a tight end in his first 11 career seasons in NFL history.

Justin Time

Justin Herbert, who had three touchdown passes on Sunday, has 88 career touchdown passes and surpassed Andrew Luck (86) for the second-most touchdown passes by a player in his first three seasons in NFL history. Only Dan Marino (98) has more. Herbert has 12,354 career passing yards and surpassed Peyton Manning (12,287) for the second-most passing yards by a player in his first three seasons all-time. Only Luck (12,957) has more.

Going for Two

Week 12 of the 2022 season marks the first week since 1994, when the two-point conversion was first implemented, in which multiple games were decided by game-winning points that came on two-point conversions in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter. Both the Jaguars and Chargers won in that fashion on Sunday.

Final-Minute Men

The Browns are the second team since the regular-season overtime rule was instituted in 1974 to score a game-tying touchdown in the final minute of the fourth quarter and a game-winning touchdown in the final minute of overtime in the same game (Bears, 1991).

Raiders Record

Josh Jacobs recorded a single-game franchise record 303 scrimmage yards (229 rushing, 74 receiving) and two rushing touchdowns, including an 86-yarder to beat Seattle in overtime. Jacobs is the only player since at least 1950 with 225-plus rushing yards and 70-plus receiving yards in a single game.
