A look at seven statistical highlights from games played at 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 24, the seventh week of the 2021 season.

 

  • There have been 24 games with a game-winning score in the final minute of regulation or in overtime this season, the most such games through the first seven weeks all-time.

    The ARIZONA CARDINALS, the last remaining undefeated team, improved to 7-0 for the first time since 1974 with their 31-5 win over Houston.

  • Tampa Bay quarterback TOM BRADY threw four touchdown passes in the Buccaneers' 38-3 win over Chicago.

    Brady, the league's all-time leader in both passing yards (81,479) and touchdown passes (602), became the first player in league history with 600 career touchdown passes.

    Brady has 37 career games with at least four touchdown passes and 97 games with at least three touchdown passes, both tied with DREW BREES for the most such games in NFL history.

    Brady, who has 203 completions and 21 touchdown passes this season, became the third player with at least 200 completions and 20 touchdown passes in his team's first seven games of a season in NFL history, joining ANDREW LUCK (2018) and Pro Football Hall of Famer PEYTON MANNING (2013).

  • Cincinnati quarterback JOE BURROW, making his 17th career start, passed for a career-high 416 yards with three touchdown passes, while rookie wide receiver JA'MARR CHASE recorded 201 receiving yards with one touchdown in the Bengals' 41-17 win at Baltimore.

    Burrow, who registered 406 passing yards and three passing touchdowns in Week 7 of the 2020 season, is the fourth player with two games with at least 400 passing yards and three touchdown passes within his first 20 career games, joining NICK FOLESPATRICK MAHOMES and BILLY VOLEK.

    Chase, who is 21 years and 237 days old, is the second-youngest player in NFL history to record at least 200 receiving yards in a single game, trailing only MIKE EVANS (21 years, 87 days old).

    Chase, the No. 5 overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, has 754 receiving yards this season and surpassed HARLON HILL (685 receiving yards in 1954) for the most receiving yards by a player in his first seven career games all-time.

    Chase, who also recorded 159 receiving yards with a touchdown catch in Week 5, is the fifth rookie since 1970 with multiple games with at least 150 receiving yards and a touchdown reception, joining Pro Football Hall of Famer RANDY MOSS (three games in 1998), KEN BURROW (two games in 1971), JUSTIN JEFFERSON (two games in 2020) and TORREY SMITH (two games in 2011). 

  • Los Angeles Rams wide receiver COOPER KUPP registered 10 receptions for 156 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' 28-19 win over Detroit.

    Kupp – who also had two touchdown receptions in Week 2, Week 3 and Week 6 – is the fourth player in the Super Bowl era with at least two touchdown receptions in four of his team's first seven games of a season, joining Pro Football Hall of Famers CALVIN JOHNSON (2011) and RANDY MOSS (2007), and STEVE WATSON (1981).

    Kupp, who has 809 receiving yards and nine touchdown receptions this season, is the first player in the Super Bowl era with at least 800 receiving yards and nine touchdown receptions in his team's first seven games of a season.

    Kupp, who recorded nine receptions for 130 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6, is the fifth wide receiver to record at least nine catches, 125 receiving yards and two touchdowns in consecutive games, joining DREW BENNETT (2004), ANTONIO BROWN (2017), Pro Football Hall of Famer CRIS CARTER (1995 and 1999) and ANDRE RISON (1990).

    Jones has 174 completions this season and joined JOE BURROW (195 completions in 2020) and JUSTIN HERBERT (181 in 2020) as the only rookie quarterbacks with at least 170 completions in their first seven starts in NFL history.

    Jones is the fourth rookie all-time with at least 225 passing yards and a touchdown pass in five consecutive games, joining DAK PRESCOTT (eight consecutive games in 2016), JUSTIN HERBERT (seven in 2020) and DESHAUN WATSON (five in 2017).
