NFL Numbers for the Boardroom: Week 14

December is here.  I can not believe that it is the last month of the regular season.  No more “bye” weeks.   Teams are pushing for the playoffs.  Who will make it?

Numbers for the boardroom

12

The New England Patriots clinched their 12th straight 10-win season  (second-longest streak in NFL history) after beating San Diego Chargers 23-14.

139

The Seattle Seahawks defense led by cornerback Richard Sherman held the Philadelphia Eagles offense to 139 total yards, the fewest under head coach Chip Kelly. The Seahawks won 24-14.

51

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s streak of 51 straight games with a touchdown throw ended on Sunday.  Despite his two interceptions, the Broncos beat the Buffalo Bills 24-17

32

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton with 32 seconds left, rallying Indianapolis to a 25-24 win on Sunday over the Cleveland Browns.

6

The St. Louis Rams sacked Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy six times.  They completely demolished the Redskins 24-0.

259

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones had a career-best 259 yards receiving last night before leaving with a hip injury.  It was not enough to upset the Green Bay Packers.  They lost 43-37.

Get in the game!
