Research Notes

  • Tom Brady had a Total QBR of 98.4 in Sunday's win over the Rams, tied for his highest in a single game over the last 5 seasons.

  • Stevan Ridley had 15 rushes for 127 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. Ridley rushed for 99 yards before contact, his second-highest total in a game this season, and had three rushes of at least 20 yards. Ridley entered Sunday with a pair of 20-yard runs on his 135 rushes the season.

  • With tight end Aaron Hernandez missing Sunday's game against the Rams, the Patriots' offense used at least three wide receivers on 32 of Brady's 35 dropbacks (91.4 pct). That was the second-highest percentage of dropbacks the Patriots have used at least three wide receivers in a game since drafting Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. The only game with a higher percentage was Week 3 of 2011, a 34-31 loss in Buffalo that Hernandez also missed.

  • Halfway through his third season, Rob Gronkowski has 34 touchdown receptions. Only four players in the last 50 seasons have more.

  • This is Tom Brady's 50th game with at least three passing touchdowns. Brett Favre, Peyton Manning and Dan Marino are the only other quarterbacks with as many three-touchdown games.

  • From Elias: With a 50-yard receiving touchdown today, Chris Givens has five straight weeks with a 50+ yard reception (longest active streak in the NFL).The last player with a 50+ yard reception in five straight games was Pat Studstill for the Lions in 1966.
