Reminder – this is as of Sunday night, and does not include MNF or the Tuesday games.

1. Tom Brady was shutout for the first time in 15 years. His 255 consecutive games with points is 2nd all-time behind Brett Favre.

2. Even factoring in the shutout, Tom Brady still leads the league in both total TDs and passing yards per game.

3. Ben Roethlisberger passed Philip Rivers on Sunday to sit 5th all time in passing yards.

4. Tua Tagovailoa has completed over 50 percent of his passes that are 20 yards or more downfield this season. That is 2nd in the league behind only Kyler Murray.

5. Per ESPN Stats: Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill each had 10 receptions and 100 receiving yards for 2nd time in their careers. They are the first duo in NFL history doing that multiple times.

6. The three most sacked QBs (Joe Burrow, Ryan Tannehill, and Lamar Jackson) all have winning records this season.

7. Per NFL Next Gen Stats: Kyler Murray completed a pass while running 18.1 MPH; this was the fastest of any completion since they began tracking in 2016.
