NFL

 

Flacco threw his fifth touchdown pass at the 13:57 mark of the the second quarter (16:03 into the game), becoming the fastest player to record five TD passes in a game since at least 1970.

Flacco also became the first player since 1986 with four touchdown passes in the first quarter of a game (Minnesota quarterback TOMMY KRAMER vs. Green Bay on 9/28/86) and the first player with five touchdown passes in the first half since TOM BRADY (October 18, 2009 vs. Tennessee).

 

Dallas running back DE MARCO MURRAY rushed for 115 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys’ 30-23 win at Seattle and became the second player in NFL history to rush for at least 100 yards in each of his team’s first six games to start a season, joining Pro Football Hall of Famer JIM BROWN (six games in 1958).

 

Jason Witten and TONY GONZALEZ (1,325) are the only tight ends with at least 900 career receptions, and Witten is the youngest to reach the milestone.

 

San Diego quarterback PHILIP RIVERS completed 22 of 34 passes (64.7 percent) for 313 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 123.8 passer rating in the Chargers’ 31-28 win at Oakland. 

Rivers has posted a passer rating of 120 or better in five consecutive games, surpassing Pro Football Hall of Famer JOHNNY UNITAS (four in 1965) and KURT WARNER (four in 2009) for the longest such streak in NFL history (minimum 15 pass attempts in each game).

 

Denver tight end JULIUS THOMAS had four catches for 51 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos’ 31-17 win at the New York Jets. Thomas leads the NFL with nine touchdown catches, tied for the most of any player in NFL history through his team’s first five games of a season (CALVIN JOHNSON, 2011).

 

Adam Vinatieri moved into 4th place on the NFL’s career scoring list.  With his nine points on Thursday he moved ahead of John Carney by one point.  Vinatieri now has 2,063 points.  Morten Anderson is at the top of the list with 2,544 points.

 

Tonight’s Monday Night Football game features the winningest team in MNF history, the San Francisco 49’ers.  The Niners will look to add to their 45-25 MNF record.
