Falcons quarterback Michael Vick rushed for 127 yards against the Buccaneers last Sunday, his third career rushing performance of 127 or more yards. Since 1972, no other quarterback has rushed for more than 125 yards in a game. Vick's sixth career 100-yard rushing game extended his own NFL record for quarterbacks. Billy Kilmer had four.

Over the last nine weeks, the Mannings have three times as many performances of 360 or more passing yards (three) than the rest of the NFL combined (one). During that span, Peyton has had two, Eli Manning one and Ben Roethlisberger one.

Falcons running back Warrick Dunn (134 rushing yards) and Michael Vick (127) are the first running back-quarterback duo in NFL history to both surpass 125 yards rushing in the same game. The Falcons have rushed for more than twice as many yards (558) as any other team in the NFC. Also, Dunn, who rushed for 132 on opening day against the Panthers, is the first player to rush for 132 yards in each of the first two games of the season in eight years, since Garrison Hearst of the 49ers had 187 against the Jets and 138 against the Redskins in 1998.
