Every Sunday, I manage to muddle through pages of research from the Football Night in America staff in search of one interesting fact per game that I can share with you, the loyal (we hope) PFT audience.
OK, so this is only the third Sunday I’ve done it. But I don’t currently plan to stop.
Key word: “Currently.”
Dolphins at Bengals: Last week, Ryan Tannehill came within a yard of Cam Newton’s rookie single-game passing yardage record of 432.
