Adrian Peterson’s milestone, Erick Decker’s wild day and more fun facts from the weekend.

Notable NFL Stats from Week 13

10,000: Adrian Peterson rushed for 211 yards in Minnesota's 23-20 overtime win over Chicago on Sunday. In the process, Peterson eclipsed 10,000 yards rushing for his career, becoming only the 28th player in NFL history to reach that plateau. It's crazy to think that he already has rushed for that many yards, but then when you watch him bowl over would-be tacklers and spin around others, you understand why. 

He is still just 28 and is now only 8,300 yards shy of Emmitt Smith's career mark for rushing yards. Hopefully his punishing style doesn't break down his body, because it's clear every time he touches the ball how much he wants every single yard available.

32: The Jacksonville Jaguars turned on the offense, scoring 32 points in their 32-28 win over the Cleveland Browns. Those 32 are one more point than the Jags scored in their first four games of the season combined.

4: Along those same lines, Broncos receiver Erick Decker couldn't have picked a better time to break out this season. Peyton Manning threw five touchdown passes last night, and four of them went to Decker. It's one shy of the NFL record, but that's not where the interesting part lies. Up until yesterday's game, Decker had only caught three touchdown passes all year long. With attention being paid to Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker (and no Julius Thomas), Decker's performance was crucial as Denver beat Kansas City once again and took a firm command of the AFC West.

200: Josh Gordon did something yesterday that no wide receiver has done in the history of the NFL: record back-to-back 200-yard receiving games. Last week, Gordon caught 14 passes for 237 yards and a touchdown. Yesterday, Gordon topped that, catching 10 balls for 261 yards and two touchdowns. With all of the freakish passing numbers being put up by quarterbacks in recent years, it's kind of surprising that this hasn't happened before. Not even Megatron has done it. It's also surprising that some of the great receivers in history weren't able to log consecutive games like that. 

8: Carolina won it's franchise record eighth straight game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday. In doing so, the Panthers keep applying more pressure on the New Orleans Saints as the two get set for a key Sunday night game next week. 

0: Nick Foles is having one of the most fortuitous seasons I can recall a quarterback having. Through his first seven starts of the season, Foles has thrown 19 touchdown passes to zero interceptions, though one was graciously nullified by a spotty defensive holding call on the Cardinals rookie Tyrann Mathieu late in the fourth quarter.  Foles luck can't last forever, can it?
