The NFL sends us "Seven From Sunday" with seven interesting facts that came out of Sunday's games, including one that involves a record-setting performance of the Baltimore Ravens Ed Reed, who made his first appearance of the 2010 season.
SEVEN FROM SUNDAY – WEEK 7
A look at seven statistical highlights from games played at 1:00 p.m. ET and 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 24, the seventh week of the 2010 season.
Washington cornerback DE ANGELO HALL tied an NFL single-game record with four interceptions, including a 92-yard interception-return touchdown, in the Redskins’ 17-14 win at Chicago. Hall is the 19th player in NFL history with four interceptions in a game and the first to accomplish the feat since 2001 (DELTHA O’NEAL, October 7).
· Tennessee wide receiver KENNY BRITT had seven catches for 225 yards and three touchdowns in the Titans’ 37-19 win over Philadelphia and Atlanta wide receiver RODDY WHITE had 11 catches for 201 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons’ 39-32 victory against Cincinnati. This marks the fifth time in NFL history that two receivers each recorded at least 200 receiving yards and two TD catches on the same day.
· Cleveland linebacker DAVID BOWENS had two interception-return touchdowns (30 and 64 yards) in the Browns’ 30-17 victory at New Orleans. Bowens joins KEN NORTON (10/22/1995) and DERRICK JOHNSON (1/3/2010) as the only linebackers since 1970 to record two interception-return touchdowns in a game.
Also in the win at New Orleans, Cleveland punter REGGIE HODGES had a 68-yard run on a fake punt, the longest rush by a punter since 1970.
Cincinnati wide receiver TERRELL OWENS had one touchdown catch in the Bengals’ 39-32 loss at Atlanta. Owens now has 150 career touchdowns (147 receiving, three rushing) and became only the fifth player in NFL history to accomplish the feat.
· St. Louis running back STEVEN JACKSON rushed for 110 yards in the Rams’ 18-17 loss at Tampa Bay. Jackson now has 7,324 career rushing yards and passed Pro Football Hall of Famer ERIC DICKERSON (7,245) for the most rushing yards in franchise history.
· Baltimore safety ED REED had two interceptions in the Ravens’ 37-34 overtime win over Buffalo. Reed has nine career games with at least two interceptions, passing New Orleans safety DARREN SHARPER (eight) for the most such games among active players.
· The TENNESSEE TITANS, who defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 37-19, have won 12 consecutive regular-season games against the NFC, the fourth-longest interconference winning streak since 1970. The 2005-09 New England Patriots won 17 consecutive interconference regular-season games, the longest such streak since 1970.
