NFL 2019: ICY HOT TD Week 10

(originally written 11/14/19)

What the hell is NFL ICY HOT TD, anyway? I'll tell you—ICY HOT TD = In Case You Had Other Things To Do.

While some of us are able to watch NFL football all Sunday long and follow it up with postgame analysis/highlight shows well into the night...many of us can't. I aim to bring those fans bits of trivia, data, and news they likely missed on Game Day.


Such as:

 

  • On Thursday Night Football, the host Raiders squeaked by the Chargers 26-24 with help from DB Erik Harris's pair of interceptions, including one for a touchdown. It had been 16 years since a Raider secured two picks and ran one back (Phillip Buchanon, 11/16/2003).

  • Playing without Matt Stafford (back), the visiting Lions fell to Chicago 20-13. Stafford had started 136 consecutive games. the second-longest active streak by a QB (LAC's Philip Rivers) and the sixth-longest by a QB ever. Russell Wilson (122) moves into second place among active QB's.

  • Baltimore slammed host Cincinnati, 49-13. Though Ravens QB Lamar Jackson threw just 17 passes, he completed 15 to set a record Baltimore completion percentage (88%). Jackson also became the sixth to record multiple perfect passer ratings, and the second to do so twice in one year (2007 Ben Roethlisberger).

  • More from Cincinnati: Ravens CB Marcus Peters became the first since 2014 with three pick-sixes in one season (William Gay).

  • Even MORE from Cincinnati: Check out Jackson's 47-yard TD run:

  • Cleveland beat visiting Buffalo 19-16, with help from 74 all-purpose yards from Kareem Hunt, playing his first game back from what amounted to a year-long suspension.

  • Kansas City fell to host Tennessee 35-32, as coach Andy Reid fell to 1-8 all-time vs. the Titans. In the 2Q, KC RT Mitchell Schwartz saw his 7,894 consecutive snap streak come to an end when his right knee was rolled up on. Schwartz, who has started 122 straight games, returned later.

  • Atlanta went into New Orleans and won 26-9. The Saints had not been held without a home TD since QB Drew Brees joined the team in 2006. Nine points also set a record low for the Brees/coach Sean Payton era.

  • In the battle of New York, the host Jets held off the Giants 34-27. Giants star RB Saquon Barkley carried 13 times...for one yard.

  • In Arizona's 30-27 loss at Tampa Bay, the good news was LB Chandler Jones' pair of sacks tying him with Shaq Barrett for the league lead (11.5). The bad news: the team finally lost its first fumble of the season, and QB Kyler Murray's 211-pass streak without an INT ended.
     

  • Miami got past host Indianapolis 16-12; Colts K Adam Vinatieri tied leader Morten Andersen with his 709th all-time field goal attempt.

  • RB Aaron Jones and the Packers defeated visiting Carolina 24-16. Jones became the first GB RB since Jim Taylor in 1962 with multiple three-TD games in one season. Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey moved within two yards (991/989) of Minnesota's Dalvin Cook for the league lead in rushing. 

  • QB Mason Rudolph led the Steelers to a 17-12 win over the visiting Rams; Rudolph became just the 9th QB to throw TD passes in each of his first seven starts.

  • At Dallas, Minnesota triumphed 28-24 over the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football, with Cook setting a Vikings 10-game record for scrimmage yards (1,415). 

  • More from Dallas: Check out Kyle Rudolph's TD catch for Minnesota...
     

  • Per STATS Inc, in Seattle's 27-24 win at San Francisco on Monday Night Football, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw just the second red-zone overtime INT in the last 25 years, with Jacoby Brissett throwing the other. I'm not sure I believe that one, just telling you what they said.

For the week, road teams went 5-8. Denver, New England, Philadelphia, Washington, Jacksonville and Houston enjoyed bye weeks.
