The 10 Most Important Stats From Week 8 in the NFL

0: There were no 400-yard passers in the NFL in week eight, which is a far cry from Week 4, when there were five QBs who passed for over 400 yards (Goff, Luck, Carr, Cousins, Ryan). That’s two weeks in a row, actually. And only one QB threw for over 350 yards (Cousins). Many factors obviously are at play – defenses adjusting, offenses leaning on the running game – but as the calendar turns to November, it’ll be interesting to monitor.

2: Touchdown catches by Josh Reynolds of the Rams in the win over the Packers. It’s the same number of touchdown catches that Odell Beckham has this season.

3: Sacks by Atlanta edge rusher Dee Ford in a win over the Broncos. Ford also forced two fumbles. The Chiefs defense has been atrocious this season, but it has improved slightly of late – before Case Keenum averaged 6.0 ypp – but the emergence of Ford is pivotal. Two years ago he had 10 sacks. If Andy Reid can bookend a healthy Justin Houston with Ford, and return Eric Berry, the Super Bowl is within reach.
