The Denver Broncos Are Attempting To Do Something Today That Only Tim Tebow Has Accomplished Before

Welcome to Week 3 of Nerd Nuggets, presenting one stat or storyline from each and every NFL game that you probably didn't know until now. Let's dive into Sunday's slate and the MNF Doubleheader...

Titans @ Browns

Titans RB Derrick Henry needs one rushing touchdown to reach 80 for his career. He would become the seventh NFL player in the Super Bowl era to reach 8,000 rushing yards and 80 rushing touchdowns within his first 8 seasons (Eric Dickerson, Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, Shaun Alexander, LaDainian Tomlinson, Adrian Peterson).

Falcons @ Lions

The Falcons have been flawless in the 4th quarter this season, outscoring opponents 27-0 in the final 15 minutes in their first two games. That is the best fourth-quarter scoring margin in the NFL.

Saints @ Packers

The Packers have won 10 consecutive home openers, the longest current streak in the NFL. Since 2019, the Packers also have the best record in the NFL at home (27-6).

Broncos @ Dolphins

The Dolphins are 8-1 at home all-time vs. Denver. The Broncos’ lone win in Miami was Oct. 23, 2011… which was an epic comeback win led by Tim Tebow.

Chargers @ Vikings

QB Kirk Cousins has thrown 25 touchdown passes to WR Justin Jefferson, the fourth-most touchdown passes by a QB/WR duo in franchise history. The tandem is just one score shy of tying QB Warren Moon and WR Cris Carter for third place all-time.

Patriots @ Jets

The Patriots have beaten the Jets 14 straight times, and a win this week will match the team mark for most consecutive wins over an opponent (New England Beat Buffalo 15 straight times from 2003-2010).

Bills @ Commanders

Bills star WR Stefon Diggs is from just outside the D.C. area and has played on the road against the Commanders twice during his NFL career (both with the Vikings). In two games at Washington, Diggs has totaled 17 catches for 242 yards and one touchdown.

Texans @ Jaguars

The Texans have beaten the Jaguars in Jacksonville five straight times. The last time the Jags beat the Texans at home was in 2017, when QB Blake Bortles had a flawless game: 21-29, 326 yards, and 3 TD.

Colts @ Ravens

After last week’s performance, Ravens QB Lamar Jackson owns 22 performances with at least 200 passing and 50 rushing yards, tailing only Cam Newton (28) and Russell Wilson (25) for the most “200/50” games in NFL history.

Panthers @ Seahawks

Despite playing on the East Coast, the Panthers are actually 7-4 over the last 10 years in regular season games on the West Coast.

Bears @ Chiefs

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce currently holds the second-longest active streak of consecutive games played with a pass reception at 144. Only Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins has a longer active streak with 147.

Cowboys @ Cardinals

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will play his 100th career game in Week 3 against the Cardinals. He is the only player in NFL history with at least 150 touchdown passes and 25 rushing touchdowns in his first 100 games.

Steelers @ Raiders

The Steelers-Raiders series is very close (17-14 Las Vegas), but the Raiders have won seven out of the nine games in the month of September.

Eagles @ Buccaneers

This is the only game in the NFL this week that features a pair of 2-0 teams. Since 2010, there have been 14 games featuring two 2-0 teams in Week 3, and seven of those 14 games produced an eventual Super Bowl berth. 

Rams @ Bengals

Cincinnati will be wearing their “White Bengal” helmets for the first time this season, a helmet they went 2-0 in last season. In the two wins, the Bengals averaged 32 PPG and Joe Burrow threw for 642 yards and 6 TD’s.
