NFL Week 13: By The Numbers
A numerical look inside Week 13 of the NFL season.
6 — The number of multi-touchdown games for Houston Texans running back Arian Foster this year, which leads the league. He found the end zone twice in a losing cause against Philadelphia last Thursday night.
313 — The amount of passing yards from Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who became the team’s all-time leading passer (surpassing Archie Manning) in the win over the Bengals.
ICONJim Schwartz and the Lions suffered yet another loss against the Bears.
19 — The number of games the Lions have lost in a row against a divisional opponent, extending their NFL record in a defeat to the Bears at home.
73 — The number of rushing yards for Packers rookie running back James Starks. Starks was active for the first time all season in the win over the 49ers.
34.5 — The passer rating for Titans quarterback Kerry Collins, his worst in a game in which he threw at least 15 passes since 2005. Tennessee dropped to 5-7 with the loss to the Jaguars.
6.2 — The yards-per-carry average of Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles after the team’s win over the Broncos. With the pace that he is on, he trails only Jim Brown for the highest yards-per-carry average with a minimum of 180 attempts in NFL history.
60 — Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter hit a 60-yard field goal in the team’s loss to the Browns, the eighth field goal of at least 60 yards in NFL history.
298 — The amount of NFL-record consecutive starts Vikings quarterback Brett Favre would make if he is healthy next week after being injured.
6 — The number of turnovers for the Redskins in the road loss to the Giants. Mike Shanahan’s squad fell to 5-7 on the year.
21 — The amount of rushing yards for the Chargers in the loss to the Raiders, which tied for seventh-lowest in team history. Mike Tolbert had only 16 yards on seven carries while rookie Ryan Mathews didn't play, apparently still bothered by a high ankle sprain.
11 — The number of interceptions thrown by Colts quarterback Peyton Manning in a three-week span. Four of those have been returned for scores, and he's thrown four picks in back-to-back weeks for the first time ever.
ICONSam Bradford and the Rams are surprisingly 6-6 and tied for first place.
1 — The number of wins the Rams had last year during their disastrous campaign. This season, St. Louis is sitting at 6-6 and has won consecutive road games for the first time since Nov. 18, 2007. The Rams remained in a first-place tie with Seattle in the NFC West, and their six wins equal their total combined for the previous three seasons.
56 — The number of points the Panthers have scored in the last six games — all losses. After the loss to the Seahawks, Carolina has been outscored 153-56 in those six games.
102 — The 102-yard kickoff return touchdown by Atlanta’s Eric Weems in the win over the Bucs was the longest score of any kind in Falcons history. The previous long was 101 yards on an interception return by Tom Pridemore on Sept. 20, 1981.
97 — The combined rushing yards for the Steelers and Ravens in the tightly contested division battle. With the win, Pittsburgh gained sole possession of first place in the AFC North over Baltimore and earned a split of the season series.
Monday night game
25 — The number of games the Patriots have won in a row at home with Tom Brady as the starting quarterback. In 2008, the Jets won in Foxborough when Matt Cassel filled in for an injured Brady.
