Football is all about measurements. How far apart players line up, how many steps a quarterback (QB) takes and how many touchdown passes a QB throws. Some measurements you want and others you want to avoid.
Alabama defeated Texas A&M 59-0. Alabama tied a school record for most points scored in a quarter (35) and had one of the largest victory margins over a Top 25 opponent ever (the largest being Florida State’s 63-0 beating over Maryland last season).
Peyton Manning passed Brett Favre for the most touchdown passes thrown in NFL history. The record fell when Manning hit Demaryius Thomas in the first half of the game against the San Francisco 49ers.
While it may not be a record it was rather impressive. The St. Louis Rams ran a fake punt back for a touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks in what could be one of the more impressive fake punts in football history. There was no reverse or throwback passes just a great acting job and a lot of misdirection.
