• Houston quarterback Matt Schaub threw for 527 yards in the victory of the Texans 43-37 in overtime over Jacksonville. The 527 yards passing Schaub place him tied for the second most in a single game in NFL history (the Hall of Famer Warren Moon got the December 16, 1990). The Hall of Famer Norm Van Brocklin holds the record for a single game with 554 yards passing (28 September 1951).

In that game, the Houston receiver Andre Johnson had 14 receptions for 273 yards and a touchdown and rookie receiver Justin Blackmon Jacksonville had seven catches for 236 yards with a touchdown. This was the first time in NFL history in which two players surpass 235 yards receiving in a game.

• Washington rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III completed 14 of 15 passes (93.3 percent) for 200 yards and four touchdowns without an interception for a passer rating of 158.3 in the Redskins' victory over Philadelphia 31-6.

The completion percentage of 93.3 of Griffin is the highest for a quarterback with at least four touchdown passes from Hall of Famer STEVE YOUNG (16 October 1994).

Griffin had a touchdown pass of 61 yards to Santana Moss in the third quarter, his third touchdown pass of at least 60 yards this season. He is the first player in NFL history with at least three touchdown passes of 60 or more yards and three touchdown runs of 60 or more yards in a season.

• Denver quarterback Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes in the Broncos win 30-23 over San Diego. Manning has 423 touchdown passes and rose to second place all-time, surpassing Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (420).

With the win, Manning (148) surpassed Marino (147) and tied the Hall of Famer John Elway (148) in the second over regular-season wins as a starter in NFL history.

• The Cincinnati receiver AJ Green had six catches for 91 yards and a touchdown in a victory for the Bengals 28-6 over Kansas City.

Green has touchdown receptions in nine consecutive games, which tied the Hall of Famer Lance Alworth (1963) with the third-longest streak in a single season in NFL history. The only longer streaks in one season belong to members of the Hall of Famer JERRY RICE (12 games in 1987) and Elroy (Crazylegs) Hirsch (10 games in 1951).

• The New England tight end Rob Gronkowski had seven receptions for 137 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' victory over Indianapolis 59-24. Gronkowski, who has 10 touchdowns on the season, is the first tight end in NFL history with at least 10 receiving touchdowns in three consecutive seasons.

In his third season, Gronkowski has 37 receiving touchdowns, the third most by a player in his first three NFL seasons. The only players who are beyond RANDY MOSS (43) and Hall of Famer JERRY RICE (40).

• The Tampa Bay rookie running back Doug Martin rushed for 138 yards and had four catches for 23 yards in the victory of the Buccaneers 27-21 in overtime over Carolina.

Martin has achieved 1.019 yards of offense in their last six games and joined Hall of Famer ERIC DICKERSON (1983) and EDGERRIN JAMES (1999) as the only rookies in NFL history to win at least 1,000 yards in a span of six games.
