Brett Maher Becomes First Kicker To Make Three 60-Yard FGs

Oct 21, 2019 8:40 AM

Brett Maher made NFL history on Sunday night when he made a 63-yard field goal at the end of the first half of the Dallas Cowboys' win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Maher is the first kicker in league history to make three field goals of at least 60 yards.

"It's pretty cool," he said. "I didn't know [it was a record] until I got in here. That's definitely cool."

He made a 62-yarder against the Eagles last season at AT&T Stadium and a 62-yarder last week against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.

Oct 15, 2019 10:12 AM

Danielle Hunter has set an NFL record for the most sacks before his 25th birthday.

The Minnesota Vikings defensive end got to Carson Wentz on Sunday for the 46th sack of his career.

"Somebody told me that the day before the game, that if he got a sack that he would do that," Mike Zimmer said of the record.

Hunter turns 25 on October 29.

Larry Fitzgerald Moves Into Second Place On Receptions List

Sep 30, 2019 8:35 AM

Larry Fitzgerald passed Tony Gonzalez for second place on the NFL's all-time list on a 15-yard catch with 1 minute, 41 seconds left in the Arizona Cardinals' 27-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fitzgerald came into the game needing five catches to reach 1,326 for his career.

"I don't mean any disrespect to guys on the all-time list but it's hard to take anything good from losing two in a row at home, three home games out of four, and we don't come out with a win," the receiver said. "That's pretty depressing, so there's not much to really be happy about."

Jerry Rice sits in first place on the receptions list with 1,549.

Ravens Win 16th Straight Preseason Game

Aug 23, 2019 9:19 AM

The Baltimore Ravens have won 16 straight preseason games.

The Ravens topped the Philadelphia Eagles 26-15 in a lightning-shortened game at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday night.

The winning streak is the longest such streak in the NFL in at least 25 years. The Ravens haven't lost in the preseason since Sept. 3, 2015.

"I don't know how significant it is," John Harbaugh said. "I think it's significant in a sense that I think our coaches do a great job of coaching in training camp. We develop players really well."

Kyler Murray Goes 6-For-7 On First Preseason Drive

Aug 9, 2019 8:31 AM

Kyler Murray played just one drive for the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night and impressed.

The first overall pick completed 6-of-7 attempts for 44 yards on the night.

Arizona's drive began on their own 2-yard line. Murray's only incompletion came when a receiver stepped out of bounds for a penalty on the catch, which by league rule is deemed an incompletion.

"I thought it was smooth," Murray said. "I was anxious to get out there, move around and throw it a little bit. I really just tried to execute whatever coach called, and I think we did that for the most part."

Eric Ebron Wants To Set Tight End Touchdown Record

May 8, 2019 8:24 AM

Eric Ebron, who scored a career-high 13 touchdowns last season, wants to break the record for touchdowns by a tight end.

"I believe Gronk still holds the record for most touchdowns, which is 17. So, if I want to do anything that is gonna be real spectacular or really good, I gotta go get 17," Ebron said. "And if I go and get 17, I help my team win games. I did that, proved that and I feel like if I'm at my best, then I feel like this team will be at their best."

Ebron is set to make $7 million in 2019, the final year of his two-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts.

May 3, 2019 8:11 AM

Forty-five percent of first round picks (14 of 31) from the 2016 NFL Draft had their fifth-year options declined.

In each of the last two years, 20 fifth-year options were picked up and 12 were declined.

Jack Conklin was the highest selected player who had his option declined as the Tennessee Titans had selected him eight overall.

The Cleveland Browns had already released Corey Coleman, as had the Denver Broncos with Paxton Lynch.

Von Miller Has Sights Set On 20-Sack Season

Apr 19, 2019 8:48 AM

Von Miller has a goal of posting a 20-sack season for the Denver Broncos.

Miller also wants to break Bruce Smith's all-time sack record of 200. To get there, Miller knows he'll need one massive season.

"I feel like I haven't even made it halfway yet," Miller said. "I'm going on nine [seasons]. We had Bruce Smith at our pass-rush summit and I talked to him about it a little bit. He played 20 years and averaged 10 sacks a season. That's right where I'm at with it. Hopefully I can get one of those 20-sack seasons. If I can get one of those in, it'll put me ahead of the pace. I'm still feeling good. I told [Bradley] Chubb today, 'I'm old but I'm still good. I still feel good out there. I still look good, Chubb?' And he was like, 'Yes.'

"As long as I'm still going and as long as I'm still playing first and second down, and rushing the quarterback on third, then I'm good. Whenever I start slipping to third down, then you know Von is on the way out. But I think that's a long way away for me."

Miller's career-high is 18.5 sacks.
