Bills Secure Historic Win in Resounding Victory

Josh Allen and his team reaffirmed their dominance in the division with a resounding 48-20 victory in Buffalo.
Just a week ago, the Dolphins astounded everyone with a historic performance, racking up 70 points via 10 touchdowns. But this week, it was their opponent's turn to make waves. The Bills have been quietly securing victory in their last three games, each with a staggering margin of at least 28 points, matching the longest streak in Super Bowl history. The only other team to achieve four consecutive wins by at least 28 points was the 1942 Chicago Bears.

Allen's performance in Week 4 was nothing short of spectacular, as he ended the game with as many passing touchdowns as incompletions, which was four. He also dashed into the end zone for an 11-yard score and achieved a perfect passer rating of 158.3.

In the Super Bowl era, the only other player to achieve four passing touchdowns, a rushing score, and a perfect passer rating in a single game was Aaron Rodgers in Week 7 of 2019 against the Raiders.

This marked the third time in Allen's career that he had thrown at least four passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown in a single game, putting him on par with Rodgers for the second-most such games since 1950. Only Drew Brees has more than Allen and Rodgers, with four such games.

Stefon Diggs was the primary target on Allen's extraordinary day.
Diggs found himself in a familiar spot, catching three of Allen's four touchdown passes and amassing a total of 120 receiving yards. This was Diggs' fourth game in his career with at least 120 receiving yards and three touchdowns, tying him for the third-most such games in the Super Bowl era. The only players ahead of him in this category are Jerry Rice with nine and Randy Moss with seven.

C.J. Stroud has silently made history at the start of his NFL journey.
The rookie quarterback for the Texans threw for another 306 yards in their Week 4 victory against the Steelers.

Stroud has now accumulated 1,212 passing yards in his young career, the second-highest in a player's first four games in NFL history, trailing only Cam Newton's 1,386 yards in 2011.

Perhaps even more impressive is Stroud's clean record of zero interceptions. He is the first player in NFL history to achieve at least 1,200 passing yards without throwing an interception in his first four games.

Anthony Richardson surpasses Colts Hall of Famer for the most rushing touchdowns in his first three games played.
Richardson scored a rushing touchdown and threw for two more in the Colts' overtime loss to the Rams, bringing his career total to four rushing touchdowns in just three games.

His four rushing touchdowns are the most by a player in their first three career games in Colts history, surpassing Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk's record of three from 1994.

At only 21 years and 132 days old, Richardson became the youngest player in the Super Bowl era to achieve multiple passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown in the same game.

Khalil Mack shines with a remarkable six sacks in the Chargers' victory.
Raiders' rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell made his NFL debut and was immediately met with a relentless sack attack by Khalil Mack.

The former 2016 Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year recorded six sacks against his former team, falling just one sack short of Hall of Famer Derrick Thomas' all-time record (individual sacks began being recorded in 1982), set in Week 10 of 1990 against the Seahawks.

This marked Mack's second career game with at least five sacks (the first being in Week 14 of 2015 against the Broncos). He and Thomas are the only players with multiple such games in their careers.

Puka Nacua continues to break records as a Rams rookie.
The fifth-round pick of 2023 added nine receptions, 163 receiving yards, and his first NFL touchdown, a game-winner in overtime, to his already impressive resume in Week 4 against the Colts.

Nacua now boasts 39 receptions, the highest in NFL history through a player's first four career games. His 501 receiving yards also set a record for the most through four games.

In three out of his four career games, Nacua has exceeded 100 receiving yards, becoming the second player in NFL history to achieve this feat, joining Harlon Hill from 1954.

Nacua's 501 receiving yards are also the most by a Rams player in the first four games of a season in the Super Bowl era, surpassing Cooper Kupp's record from 2021. Speaking of Kupp, the Rams' star wide receiver is eligible to return from injured reserve this week, potentially forming one of the league's most formidable wide receiver duos.

Christian McCaffrey breaks a record previously held by 49ers legend Jerry Rice.
McCaffrey entered Week 4 as the NFL's leading rusher (and scrimmage yards leader) and added 106 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns, 71 receiving yards, and a receiving touchdown to his tally in San Francisco's victory over Arizona.

This marked McCaffrey's 13th consecutive game scoring a touchdown, including playoffs, surpassing Rice's franchise record of 12 games and tying for the fifth-longest streak since 1950.

McCaffrey is only the third player since 1950 to accumulate at least 600 scrimmage yards and seven scrimmage touchdowns in the first four games of a season, joining the ranks of Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith (1995) and Jim Brown (1958 & 1963).
