NFL Numbers for the Boardroom: Week 13
So much happened during the Thanksgiving weekend. Detroit Lions wide receiver showed that he is not slowing down at all. Running back Ray Rice won his appeal against the NFL for his suspension. Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny “football” Manziel finally played. The Browns lost, but Manziel took over with only 12:01 minutes left in the game. Cleveland is still in the hunt for a playoff spot, so I think we will see another team switch their starting signal caller.
Numbers for the boardroom
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson set a record as the fastest to reach 10,000 yards receiving, surpassing that milestone in the second quarter of his 115th game.
The Denver Broncos were able to beat the Arizona Cardinals thanks to kicker Connor Barth having a perfect day. He made all five of his field goal attempts.
The St. Louis Rams led the Oakland Raiders 38-0 at halftime. It was the largest halftime lead in franchise history. The final score was 52-0.
Jacksonville Jaguars rookie Aaron Colvin returned a fumble 41 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of their comeback win against the New York Giants. It was the first time in franchise history that Jacksonville scored two defensive touchdowns in the same game.
Three teams lost by one point yesterday.
San Diego Chargers 34 – Baltimore Ravens 33
Jacksonville Jaguars 25 – New York Giants 24
Cincinnati Bengals 14 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers 13
Monday Night Football
Monday Night Football (MNF) is in New Jersey at MetLife Stadium. The New York Jets (2-9) will play the Miami Dolphins (6-5). The team records tell the story. This season has been a nightmare for the Jets. Strange things happen in the NFL and this is a rivalry, but Miami can not lose this game. The Jets have a top 10 defense, but they have only won two games. On the other side of the ball, they are going back to Geno Smith to start at quarterback. Miami will win. MNF kicks off at 8:30 pm ET on ESPN.
