  • Despite his 2 rushing touchdowns Sunday, Arian Foster rushed for just 29 yards on 17 attempts, averaging 1.7 yards per carry, the worst YPC in his career (minimum 15 attempts).

  • Last night marked Matt Schaub's 5th career game with 0 passing touchdowns and 2 or more interceptions. It was just the 1st time Schaub passed for 0 TD and 2+ INT at home.

  • With his 3rd TD reception on Sunday vs the Texans, Green Bay's Jordy Nelson has 19 TD receptions since the start of last season -- only Rob Gronkowski (20) has more.
