Saying goodbye to each NFL week with our latest edition of “Five Interesting Stats” during COVID is one thing that emotes positive feelings in a difficult year.
Here are five interesting notes to close out Week Four in the NFL.
Dak Prescott makes history again, but the Cowboys lose again.
Prescott’s thrown for 450 or more yards in three straight games (NFL record).
1,424 passing yards is the most for any three-game span in NFL history.
Cowboys Defense Suffering Through a Historical Implosion.
Set the team record for most points allowed over a three-game span with 126.
Allowed 38 points in three straight games for the first time since 1960.
|Last Three Games|
|Cowboys 1-2 in those games|
Tom Brady sets another NFL record
Brady threw for five TD in the Buccaneers win over the Chargers on Sunday. Brady (43 years, 62 days) passed Warren Moon (40 years, 342 days) as the oldest QB in NFL history to do so. All five of Brady’s TD’s went to different receivers.

Those Little Town Blues
The New York Jets and Giants are both 0-4 in the same season for the second time since the merger. In 1976 both teams started 0-4 and finished their seasons 3-11.
Atlanta Defense is Historically Bad (Just like Dallas).
The Falcons are off to their first 0-4 start since 1999 (the year after they advanced to the Super Bowl). Their defense is the main culprit, as their 1,793 yards allowed in their first four games is a franchise record for most allowed in the first four games of the season.
