NFL Research offers the best nuggets from each week of games in the NFL. Here are the most eye-popping statistical accomplishments of Week 8.
1) Cooper Kupp had a record-breaking performance in the Rams' win in London. With 220 receiving yards, Kupp broke the record for the most receiving yds in an international NFL game. He surpassed former leader Brandon Lloyd, who had 169 receiving yds for the Broncos in Week 8, 2010 against the 49ers.
5) Since 2000, Adam Vinatieri is 17-of-19 on potential game-tying or go-ahead field goal attempts in the last minute of the fourth quarter, including postseason. His 17 such field goals are the most in the NFL in that span.
7) Since 1950, Andy Dalton is the only quarterback to record both an 0-8 record and an 8-0 record in the first 8 games of a season.
8) Gardner Minshew has thrown for at least two TDs in five games this season -- the most by a Jaguars quarterback in their rookie season. Blake Bortles (2014), Blaine Gabbert (2011) and Byron Leftwich (2003) are all tied for second with two such games in each of their rookie seasons. He is also the first Jaguars rookie to throw for 3 TDs in a game.
10) Miles Sanders' 65-yard rushing TD is the longest Eagles' rushing TD since 2013, when Bryce Brown scored a 65-yd rushing TD in Week 16 against the Bears. The last Eagles player with a rushing TD of at least 65 yards on the road was DeSean Jackson, who ran for a 67-yd score against the Redskins 10 years and one day ago, on Oct 26, 2009.
11) Bill Belichick became just the third head coach to win 300 career games, including postseason. He joins Hall of Famers Don Shula (347) and George Halas (324).
15) With 5.0 combined sacks, Nick (3.0) and Joey Bosa (2.0) set the record for the most sacks recorded by brothers in a day where each brother recorded at least one sack. The Bosas broke the record of 4.0 sacks by T.J. and J.J. Watt (Week 5, 2018) and Jimmy and Toby Williams (Week 2, 1985). Individual sacks became an official NFL stat in 1982.
