This week in history - 1837 to be specific, one of the first institutions of higher education for women in the United States opened in Massachusetts—Mount Holyoke Female Seminary. It is now known as Mount Holyoke College. I’m hoping to drop some higher education with some notable facts from Week 9 below.
***Reminder – this is as of Sunday night.***
- Matthew Stafford threw interceptions on back-to-back snaps for the first time in his career.
- The Browns were the first team since 1967 with an interception return for a touchdown, a receiving touchdown, and a rushing touchdown all for over 60+ yards.
- Jonathan Taylor has rushing scores in six straight games (seven scores over that time).
- Per ESPN Stats: since tracking began in 2009, no player has finished a game with zero completions and multiple picks from outside the pocket until Sam Darnold did it on Sunday.
- Justin Tucker is 6-for-6 all-time on overtime kicks.
- Houston Texans vs. Miami Dolphins featured nine total turnovers, the most in a single game in five years.
- Cordarrelle Patterson has either a touchdown or 100 yards (either rushing or receiving) in four of his last five games).
- Joe Burrow has an interception in five straight games.
- Yannick Ngakoue (the Las Vegas defensive end) has had multiple sacks in three of his last four games.
- Over the last two seasons, Colt McCoy has started three games, filling in as the backup for the Arizona Cardinals and the New York Giants. He has a winning record (2-1) over those starts.
What stuck out to YOU in Week 9?
