Twitter Talk

 

@greggrosenthal -- Adrian Peterson looks all the way back. Or he's playing the Lions.

 

@RotoPat  -- Why are the Jets delaying the inevitable? Just call Vinny Testaverde already.

 

@Dexters_Library  -- "I like timeouts about as much as I like using LeSean McCoy." Andy Reid

 

@evansilva  -- Shonn Greene's stats since Bills game: 41 carries, 97 yards, 0 TDs. 2.37 YPC.

 

@CaptainComeback  -- Today was the 1st time Mike McCarthy won a game without getting a takeaway.

 

@Dexters_Library  -- Jermichael Finley could catch a pass for negative yards and still celebrate like he won the lottery.

 

@smartfootball -- Is Harbaugh running spread offense stuff just to show Ryan/Sparano that they don't know what they're doing with Tebow?

 

@Andy_Benoit  -- Lions should put quotes around the "special" of their special teams. Lions "special" teams.

 

@scott_pianowski  -- Has any Mark Ingram play ever worked in the NFL? Sure doesn't seem like it.

 

 

Stats and What Not

 

According to ESPN’s Stats and Info, “The Patriots are the second team in NFL history with a pair of 100-yard rushers and a pair of 100-yard receivers in the same game. The other was the Green Bay Packers against the Detroit Lions in 2008.”

 

Ryan Tannehill’s 418 passing yards broke Dan Marino's Dolphins rookie record by 96 yards.

 

The Rams and Vikings already have as many wins as they had last season.

 

Lions are the first team in NFL history to allow both a punt return TD and kickoff return TD in back-to-back games.

 

Drew Brees ties Johnny Unitas' NFL record with a touchdown pass in 47 straight games.

 

Texans are 4-0 for 1st time in franchise history.

 

Chris Johnson tripled his rushing yards on the season in Week 4.

 

The Patriots have scored 101 points against the Bills in their last two meetings.

 

BenJarvus Green-Ellis hadn’t lost a fumble in his career until last week, so of course he lost another one this week.

 

Christian Ponder is the only starting quarterback to have not thrown an interception this season.

 

The Redskins have given up 11 passing touchdowns and five separate 100 yard receiving games to wide receivers.  They play Atlanta next week.
