What To Look For in Week 12 in the NFL:

CHARGED UP: Last season, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback JUSTIN HERBERT recorded 31 touchdown passes and 396 completions, both the most by a rookie quarterback in NFL history. In 2021, Herbert ranks third in the league with 261 completions and fourth with 22 touchdown passes.

With a touchdown pass at Denver on Sunday (4:05 PM ET, CBS), Herbert will surpass DEREK CARR (53 touchdown passes) for the second-most touchdown passes ever by a player in his first two seasons. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (68) had more.

Herbert’s top target this season has been wide receiver KEENAN ALLEN, who leads the team with 74 catches and 810 receiving yards. Allen has 698 receptions in 110 career games and his 14 games with at least 10 receptions are the fifth-most since he entered the league in 2013.

With two receptions on Sunday, Allen will tie ANTONIO BROWN (111 games) as the fastest player ever to reach 700 career receptions.

Last week, Chargers running back AUSTIN EKELER totaled 115 scrimmage yards (65 receiving, 50 rushing) and a career-high four touchdowns (two rushing, two receiving). He enters Week 12 with 978 scrimmage yards (573 rushing, 405 receiving) this season and is one of two players in the league (D’ANDRE SWIFT) with at least 500 rushing yards and 400 receiving yards.

Ekeler, who signed with the Chargers after going undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft, has 4,958 scrimmage yards in his career. With 42 scrimmage yards on Sunday, he will become the third undrafted player to reach 5,000 scrimmage yards in his first five seasons in the common-draft era, joining ARIAN FOSTER and WILLIE PARKER.

RUN CMC: Last week, Carolina running back CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY recorded 119 scrimmage yards (60 receiving, 59 rushing), marking his 22nd career game with at least 50 rushing yards and 50 receiving yards.

If he accomplishes the feat at Miami on Sunday (1:00 PM ET, FOX), McCaffrey will tie TIKI BARBER (23 games) and Pro Football Hall of Famer LADAINIAN TOMLINSON (23) for the second-most games ever with at least 50 rushing yards and 50 receiving yards. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer MARSHALL FAULK (41) has more.

Since entering the NFL in 2017, McCaffrey has 357 career receptions, while New Orleans running back ALVIN KAMARA has 358. McCaffrey on Sunday and Kamara against Buffalo on Thanksgiving (8:20 PM ET, NBC), can each surpass ROGER CRAIG (358) for the most receptions by a running back in his first five seasons in NFL history.

KINGS IN THE NORTH: Week 12 features two AFC North matchups, as the PITTSBURGH STEELERS (5-4-1) travel to play the CINCINNATI BENGALS (6-4) at Paul Brown Stadium (1:00 PM ET, CBS) and the BALTIMORE RAVENS (7-3) host the CLEVELAND BROWNS (6-5) on Sunday Night Football (8:20 PM ET, NBC).

With each team above .500 and within one game of a playoff position, this marks the fourth time since 1970 in which each team in one division has a winning record entering Week 12.

TAYLOR VS. TAMPA: Last week, Indianapolis running back JONATHAN TAYLOR totaled 204 scrimmage yards (185 rushing, 19 receiving) and five touchdowns (four rushing, one receiving), becoming the first player to record at least 175 rushing yards, four rushing touchdowns and one touchdown reception in a single game in NFL history.

That marked his eighth consecutive game with at least 100 scrimmage yards and a rushing touchdown, tied for the longest such streak in league history. If he accomplishes the feat again on Sunday against Tampa Bay (1:00 PM ET, FOX), Taylor will become the first player ever with at least 100 scrimmage yards and a rushing touchdown in nine straight games.

Taylor enters Week 12 leading the league with 1,122 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. On Sunday, he will be facing a Buccaneers defense that leads the league in stopping the run, allowing 78.4 rushing yards per game. Through 10 games, Tampa Bay has only allowed one 100-yard rusher this season (Chicago’s KHALIL HERBERT – 100 rushing yards in Week 7).

Sunday’s matchup will mark the fifth game since 2000 featuring the league’s leading rusher against the league’s top rushing defense in Week 12 or later.

Only DREW BREES (10) has more.

GREATNESS IS IN THE AAR: Last week, Green Bay quarterback AARON RODGERS passed for 385 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions for a 148.4 rating. It marked his 13th career game with at least four touchdown passes and a passer rating of 140-or-higher, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer PEYTON MANNING (13) for the third-most such games all-time. Only DREW BREES (15) and TOM BRADY (14) have more.

Rodgers, the 2020 Associated Press Most Valuable Player, enters the week ranking second in the league with a 106.6 rating.

Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman AARON DONALD, the 2020 Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year, has six sacks this season and has recorded a sack in two of his past three games.
