The 8 Most Fascinating Facts about the NFL Week 11
- Baltimore had their third shutout of the year. The last time a team had three shutouts in one year was 2003, when the New England Patriots did it. The record for most shutouts in a season is a whopping 11 by the 1926 Pottsville Maroons, who only played 14 games that year, yet somehow finished a lowly third.
- Tom Brady became the first quarterback to have a 300+ yard passing game in each of three different countries (the U.S., Mexico, and England).
- Two games had final scores never before achieved by an NFL game. The 54-24 win by San Diego over Buffalo, and the 33-8 charge by New England over Oakland were the first final scores of their kind.
- In week two, the Denver Broncos were 2-0 and New Orleans was 0-2. Since then, the Broncos have gone
1-7 and the Saints have won eight straight.
- It has been 18 years since the Jacksonville Jaguars led their division after 10 games.
- Cleveland’s 4-43 record is the worst a team has done over a 47-game stretch in the entire history of the NFL.
- Steven Hauschka set an NFL record by making his 13th straight field goal that was beyond 50 yards.
- The Bengals won in Denver for the first time since 1985. Cincinnati had lost ten straight mile-high games.
