96 ... Giants cornerback Kevin Dockery's 96-yard interception return for a touchdown against Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo on Monday was the second interception return of 96 yards or more for a TD against Dallas this year. Eagles cornerback Lito Sheppard had a 102-yarder earlier this month off quarterback Drew Bledsoe. The Cowboys are only the second team in NFL history to allow two interception returns of 96 yards or more for touchdowns in one season. The only other team to do that was the 2002 Buffalo Bills, who gave up a 98-yarder to Chad Williams of the Ravens and a 100-yarder to Brock Marion of the Dolphins. The quarterback in both games was Bledsoe.

414 ... Joey Harrington's 414 yards against the Packers are the most by a quarterback completing 53 percent or less of his passes since 2000, when Vinny Testaverde of the Jets threw for 481 yards despite completing only 52 percent of his passes in a game against the Ravens. Harrington completed 33 of 62 passes (53 percent).

506 ... Donovan McNabb and the Eagles gained 506 yards on Sunday, becoming the first team in nearly six years to gain 500 or more yards and fail to score more than 21 points. The last time it happened was Dec. 24, 2000, when the Jets outgained the Ravens 524-142 but lost 34-20.

95 ... Vikings running back Chester Taylor's 95-yard TD run was the longest in 56 years by a player who had never had a run from scrimmage of more than 52 yards. The last player with a TD run of 95 or more yards without a prior run of at least 52 yards was Jim Spavital of the Colts, who had a 96-yard touchdown run against the Packers on Nov. 5, 1950, at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore.

100-100 ... Brian Westbrook became the first player in 20 years to have 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving in the same game despite getting 20 or fewer total touches on offense. Westbrook was 13-for-101 rushing and 7-for-114 receiving against the Buccaneers. The last player with 100 yards rushing and receiving in the same game on 20 or fewer touches was Herschel Walker of the Cowboys against the Eagles on Dec. 14, 1986. Walker was 6-for-122 rushing and 9-for-170 receiving. Four players -- Walker, Johnny Hector, James Brooks and Marcus Allen -- had 100-100 games in 1986. Since then, only Westbrook and Priest Holmes (twice, in 2001 and '02) have done it.

342 ... Peyton Manning threw for 342 yards with four touchdowns, completed 71 percent of his passes, wasn't sacked and didn't throw an interception. He's the first quarterback to do all that in the same game in four years, since Kerry Collins of the Giants completed 79 percent of his passes and threw for 366 yards with four TDs, no sacks and no interceptions against the Colts on Dec. 22, 2002. Manning was the losing QB in that game.

62 ... Matt Bryant's 62-yard field goal, which gave the Buccaneers a 23-21 win over the Eagles, was the second-longest game-winning field goal in NFL history and the longest in 36 years. The only longer game-winner was Tom Dempsey's NFL-record 63-yarder that gave the Saints a 19-17 win over the Lions on Nov. 8, 1970, at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. Jason Elam's 63-yarder on Oct. 25, 1998, at Mile High Stadium in Denver, came at the end of the first half and gave the Broncos a 27-10 lead on the way to a 37-24 win.

36-22 ... Two NFL games finished with a 36-22 score this weekend, matching the total number of previous 36-22 games in NFL history. On Sunday the Colts beat Joe Gibbs' Redskins 36-22, and on Monday the Giants beat Bill Parcells' Cowboys by the same score. The only other 36-22 decisions in NFL history were the Chargers' win over the Saints on Oct. 16, 1994, and the Packers' win over the 49ers on Nov. 1, 1998.

6 ... Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson's one-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Manumaleuna against the Chiefs was Tomlinson's fifth career TD pass. Since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, among non-quarterbacks only Walter Payton (with eight) and Greg Pruitt, Keith Byars and Marcus Allen (six each) have thrown more TD passes. But by completing six of nine passes with no interceptions, Tomlinson has by far the highest passer rating of that group at 146.8. Next-highest is Allen at 106.8 and then Byars at 86.2. Tomlinson is the only non-quarterback in NFL history to throw six or more passes without an interception.
