NFL Numbers for the Boardroom: Week 10

Yesterday, I watched the Red Zone Channel for the first time and loved it! No commercials or timeouts, just football.  Initially, I was afraid that I was going to miss something, but I did not.  I was able to watch the best parts of every game.  It was awesome!  I am enamored with my new love affair, but let me get to the highlights from Week 10 and Monday Night Football predictions.

Numbers for the boardroom

22

The Detroit Lions won their fourth straight game yesterday and are 7-2 for the first time in 22 seasons.  The last time they started with this record was in 1993.  That is also the last time that they won a divisional title.  That is something for Lions fans to roar about.

6,006

New York Jets quarterback became the first quarterback in NFL history to rush for over 6,000 yards in his career.  After yesterday’s upset over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Vick ended the game with 6,006 career rushing yards.

11

The New Orleans Saints ended a club record 11-game home winning streak yesterday losing 27-24 to the San Francisco 49ers in overtime.  Their last lost at home was December 30, 2012 against the Carolina Panthers

190

Yesterday the NFL’s oldest rivalry (Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers) played for the 190th time.  The historic meeting was an embarrassing blowout for the Bears.  The Green Bay Packers won at home 55-14.

55

The Green Bay Packers tied a franchise record for points at Lambeau Field scoring 55 points in their victory against the Chicago Bears.

6

Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, threw 6 touchdown passes yesterday to tie the franchise game record and match the NFL record for a half.  He did not play the second half of the game.

Monday Night Football

Monday Night Football (MNF) stops in the City of Brotherly Love tonight.  The Philadelphia Eagles (6-2) will host the Carolina Panthers (3-5-1).  The Eagles are starting their backup quarterback, Mark Sanchez.  The Panthers are struggling on defense and offense.  I am predicting the Eagles to win 20 – 17.  MNF kicks off at 8:30 pm ET on ESPN.

Get in the game!
