The Colts are in while the Dolphins are out.

  • Minnesota 's Justin Jefferson broke a Super Bowl-era record for receiving yards by a rookie, finishing the season with 1,400 yards. It's also a new Minnesota record that was previously held by Randy Moss.
  • Tampa Bay receiver Mike Evans on SUnday caught a quick pass to give him 1,006 yards on the season, which made him the first player in NFL history with a 1,000-yard season for seven seasons to begin a career. Ironically, he injured his knee on the next play and missed the remainder of the game.
  • Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson on Sunday became the first quarterback in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards or more in multiple seasons. He also hit the mark during the 2018 season.
  • Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady started his 299th game Sunday, passing the mark previously held by Brett Favre.
  • Brady, 43, also has 43 touchdowns this season (40 passing, three rushing).
  • Brady is only the second quarterback to throw 40 or more touchdowns in a season for two different franchises (Peyton Manning).
  • Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen on Sunday became the first player in NFL history to pass for 4,500 yards and 35 touchdowns, and also rush for five touchdowns in a single season.
  • The Cleveland Browns on Sunday, with their 24-22 win over Pittsburgh, clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2002—the longest drought in the league until Sunday.
