With two weeks left in the season, it’s a good time to flip through the NFL Record and Fact Book and take a look at some of the single-season records that are in danger of falling this year. As you’ve probably noticed, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has a bunch of records within his reach.
Manning has already broken one official NFL single-season passing record this year, and he has a chance to break or tie four more of them in the next two games.
But Manning isn’t the only quarterback who has a shot at breaking a record this year: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles could, with a couple of good games, break the all-time record for passer rating in a season.
And Browns receiver Josh Gordon and Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery could, with another 200-yard receiving game, equal an NFL record that actually dates back to the second season of the American Football League.
Finally, three special teams players could break records this year: Rams punter Johnny Hekker, Broncos kicker Matt Prater and Ravens kicker Justin Tucker. Click here for a full list of the individual records that could fall in the next two weeks.
