Allen Matches Rushing TD Record

Benedict Bermange picks out the best stats from Week Eight in the NFL, including impressive first career starts for Mike White and Cooper Rush, the Buffalo Bills stretching their win streak over the Miami Dolphins and some more Tom Brady records

The Arizona Cardinals lost their unbeaten start to the season as Rasul Douglas intercepted Kyler Murray in the endzone with 12 seconds left to seal a 24-21 win for the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. If that ending sounded familiar, it was the same venue where Malcolm Butler had a game-ending interception - also on 2nd-and-Goal - to give the New England Patriots a 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX in 2015.

The Buffalo Bills' 29-11 victory over the Miami Dolphins was their seventh in a row against their divisional rivals, their longest-ever winning streak against the team, and they have scored at least 25 points in all seven of those wins. The Bills also won their seventh successive game after a bye week. Their last loss following a week off was back in Week 10 in 2014, when they lost 17-13 to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Josh Allen marked his 50th career start with his 28th rushing touchdown, to equal the record by any quarterback in his first 50 starts.

Most QB rushing touchdowns in first 50 NFL starts

The Chicago Bears might have lost 33-22 to the San Francisco 49ers, but Justin Fields became the first Bears quarterback to ever have at least 100 yards rushing and 175 yards passing in the same game. The most passing yards by any quarterback who also rushed for at least 100 yards in the same game is 340 by Cam Newton for the Carolina Panthers against the New York Giants in 2015.

The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Detroit Lions by a score of 44-6, their largest margin of victory on the road since they defeated the Cardinals 52-10 in the 1981 season.

Longest streak by a Colts QB without an interception

In the midst of the Indianapolis Colts' 34-31 loss to the Titans in overtimeCarson Wentz set a new record for the most successive pass attempts by a Colts QB without throwing an interception. Though, unfortunately for the Colts, his streak ended in the fourth quarter when Elijah Molden returned an interception for a touchdown to put the Titans up 31-24.

Mike White marked his first career start by racking up 405 passing yards for the New York Jets, the second-most by any quarterback making his first career start.

Most passing yards in first career NFL start

Even though the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost 36-27 to the New Orleans Saints, Tom Brady set yet more records as he recorded his 98th game with at least three touchdown passes and his 38th game with at least four, breaking a tie with Drew Brees in both categories. His only previous loss when he had thrown for at least four touchdowns was in 2011 against the Bills, when he also threw four interceptions. Brady now has 150 touchdown passes in his 40s, as opposed to 'just' 147 when he was in his 20s.
