Stat of the Week: Tim Tebow’s 20-yard scramble to beat the Jets’ blitz was the longest game-winning touchdown run by a QB in final minute of the fourth quarter in NFL history.

Runner-Up: Buoyed by a defense that hasn’t allowed a touchdown in 12 quarters, the Dolphins are the first team in NFL history to start the season 0-7 and win their next three games.

Second Runner-Up: Per ColdHardFootballFacts.com, Chris Johnson became the 100th back since 1960 to carry as man as 12 times without topping 13 yards.

Quote of the Week: Aaron Rodgers on television analysts as professional contrarians, specifically ESPN's Skip Bayless: “I just think it just goes to the point that you can’t take a whole lot of what those people say too personally because they’re shock experts on ESPN and NFL Network. A lot of them are just going for the shock value of what they’re saying, as is typified by that guy on ESPN, I don’t want to even say his name. He works for ‘First Take’…All he does is say things that are so ridiculous just for the shock value.”

Runner-Up: Broncos coach John Fox on accusations that he and football czar John Elway are rooting for Tim Tebow to fail so they can draft their own hand-selected QB in 2012: “It doesn't make much sense. It would be like buying a Ferrari and pouring sugar in the gas tank."

Tweet of the Week: CheeseheadTV.com’s Aaron Nagler after Tebow’s game-winning 95-yard touchdown drive: “Your move, Satan.”

Runner-Up: From Matt Mosley of Fox Sports Southwest: “That was the most exciting horrible throw I've seen in quite some time. Tebow's completions are like soccer goals in extra time of 0-0 tie.”

Second Runner-Up: From CSN Philly’s Reuben Frank during the Eagles’ practice week: “A cockroach just wandered into the media room at the Eagles' NovaCare Complex. @MikeSielskiWSJ commented: ‘Now, there's a metaphor.’”
