A look at seven statistical highlights from games played at 1:00 p.m. ET and 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 9, the fifth week of the 2011 season.
1. The Kansas City Chiefs overcame a 24-7 deficit to defeat Indianapolis 28-24. It marked the seventh time this season that a team trailed by at least 17 points and came back to win the game. That is the most through the first five weeks of any season in NFL history.
2. With two games remaining in Week 5, two quarterbacks have thrown for at least 400 yards (New York Giants’ ELI MANNING, 420 and Houston’sMATT SCHAUB, 416) to bring the season total to 10. That total is themost ever through the first five weeks of a season and already ranks as the fourth-most for a single season (13 in 1986 and 2004; 11 in 2010).
4. Minnesota running back ADRIAN PETERSON rushed for 122 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings’ 34-10 win over Arizona. Peterson had three rushing touchdowns in the first quarter and is just the fifth player since the 1970 merger to accomplish the feat. The other four were Pro Football Hall of Famer ERIC DICKERSON (10/31/88), JAMES STEWART (10/12/97), STEPHEN DAVIS (9/19/99) and TIMBIAKABUTUKA (10/3/99).
