No quarterback has rushed for 100 yards in a game against the
New England Patriots in the Bill Belichick era (since 2000, including playoffs).
Lamar Jackson will have something to say about that. The mobile quarterback has three games with at least 100 rush yards this season, including a 152-yard rushing performance in
Week 6. He'll add a fourth to his season total Sunday night with 150 yards on the ground against the Pats.
Nick Foles nearing a return from injured reserve,
Gardner Minshew has to be feeling the pressure. The rookie passer is 4-3 since replacing Foles and has a 13:2 touchdown-to-interception ratio (fourth in the league). The most impressive thing about this is the three players ahead of him in TD-INT ratio are former MVPs and/or
Super Bowl winners (
Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers). In Jacksonville's last game before its bye week, Minshew leaves a lasting impression with 400 passing yards and three touchdowns against the
Houston Texans in London.
Redskins matchup features two of the best running backs the NFL has ever seen in
Frank Gore and
Adrian Peterson. Gore (15,170) and Peterson (13,701) rank fourth and sixth, respectively, on the all-time rushing yards leaderboard and it feels like both of these vets have years left in the tank. On Sunday, the backs will combine for 300 rushing yards in a run-heavy affair.
For as impressive as
Lamar Jackson has been in his young career, the dynamic quarterback has yet to rack up 400 yards of total offense in a game. But Sunday
against the undefeated Patriots in prime time, Jackson has a heyday against Bill Belichick's dominant defense and records the first 400-yard performance of his career.
honored his word last week by committing to the run game in the
Week 8 bout with the
Los Angeles Chargers. It didn't lead to the result the team wanted, as Chicago lost again, but rookie running back
David Montgomery ran the rock on 27 of the
Bears' 38 run plays for a career-high 135 yards. It was certainly a bright spot for the team, and Montgomery is just getting started. He'll rush for his second straight 100-yard game on Sunday, this time against a stingy
Eagles run defense.
