WHAT TO LOOK FOR – A LOOK BACK

Posted Dec 10, 2012

WHAT TO LOOK FOR -- A LOOK BACK

PICK SIX: With one game to play, five players – New Orleans’ ELBERT MACK (73 yards), Seattle’s RICHARD SHERMAN (19 yards), Minnesota’s rookie HARRISON SMITH (56 yards), Indianapolis’ CASSIUS VAUGHN (three yards) and Tennessee’s WILL WITHERSPOON (40 yards) – recorded interception-return touchdowns in Week 14. On Sunday, Mack, Sherman, Vaughn and Witherspoon recorded their first INT-return touchdowns of the season.

 

This season, 51 NFL players have combined for 57 interception-return touchdowns. With 49 games remaining in 2012, those totals rank tied for the third-most and tied for the fourth-most, respectively, since 1970.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR ON MNF:  A few notes to keep in mind for tonight’s Monday Night Football game between the Texans and Patriots…

 

WINNING MODEL: Last week, the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (9-3) clinched their fourth consecutive AFC East title and ninth division championship since 2003. The Patriots are guaranteed to finish the year with a winning record for the 12th consecutive season and are the first team to accomplish the feat since the San Francisco 49ers (1983-1998) posted a winning record in 16 consecutive seasons.

 

With a win against Houston, New England will reach 10 regular-season wins for the 10th consecutive season and join San Francisco (16) as the only teams in league annals to record 10 consecutive 10-win seasons.

 

The teams with the most consecutive seasons with 10 regular-season wins in NFL history:

INDIVIDUAL PATRIOTS: New England quarterback TOM BRADY and wide receiver WES WELKER can accomplish the following feats tonight:

 

  • With five touchdown passes, Brady (25) would reach 30 passing touchdowns in a season for the fourth time, tying Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (four times) for the fourth-most such seasons all-time.

 

  • With eight receptions against Houston tonight, Welker (92) would become the first player in NFL history with five 100-reception seasons.
