Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck recorded his 50th career touchdown pass on his second of three scoring strikes in Monday's 30-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

In a game that saw the Colts go run-heavy while jumping out to a 17-6 lead, Luck still managed the trio of scoring passes despite completing only 20 of his 34 attempts for just 172 yards.

No. 49 came on a one-yard pass to running back Ahmad Bradshaw with the Colts facing a 4th-and-goal from the 1-yard line in the first quarter. Luck then hit the milestone in the final two minutes of the second quarter, connecting with third-string tight end Jack Doyle on a two-yard scoring strike off a play-action fake.

No. 50 moved Luck into fourth place on the Colts' all-time list for passing touchdowns, one ahead of current San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh (49).

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy scored his 50th career touchdown on a one-yard run during Monday's 30-27 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

McCoy's score, which cut the Eagles' deficit to seven points in the third quarter, was his 40th career touchdown on the ground.

Arguably the most complete running back in the NFL, "Shady" has 10 receiving touchdowns to go with his 40 rushing touchdowns, having caught at least two scoring passes in each of the last four seasons.

Though listed at a modest 208 pounds, he's been surprisingly effective in goal-line situations in his six-year career with 12 one-yard rushing touchdowns. He also has six rushing TDs from two yards out, and 25 of his 40 rushing scores have gone for 10 yards or fewer.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles set a new single-game personal best for receiving yards Monday, piling up 152 on seven receptions in a 30-27 win over the Indianapolis Colts, per ESPN Stats & Info.

One week after his 49-yard touchdown run helped the Eagles come back from a 17-0 deficit against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the 31-year-old Sproles recorded a game-high 178 scrimmage yards, including 19 on an impressive game-tying touchdown run in the third quarter.

The 5'6" scatback posted the second-highest single-game receiving yardage total for a player 5'6" or under, falling 16 yards shy of the 168 recorded by running back Lionel James in a game for the 1985 San Diego Chargers, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).

Sproles, who played for the Chargers from 2005 to 2010, set his previous single-game personal best of 128 receiving yards as a member of the New Orleans Saints in 2012.

Though he was unable to secure the win, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees passed John Elway for fourth place on the NFL's all-time passing yards list during Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Brees now has 51,651 career passing yards, putting him 176 ahead of Elway, who threw for each of his 51,475 yards as a member of the Denver Broncos. Sitting ahead of Brees are Brett Favre (71,838), Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (65,475) and Dan Marino (61,131).

Already a popular name near the top of the single-season record lists, the 35-year-old Brees also ranks fourth all time in completions (4,537) and touchdown passes (366), nestled between Marino and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in both categories.

Brees ranks a somewhat less prolific seventh in career passer rating (95.2), a statistic dominated by active players. Five of the six quarterbacks ahead of Brees are still playing, including all-time leader Aaron Rodgers (104.7) and somewhat surprisingly Tony Romo (95.4).

With Sunday's 30-7 triumph in Minnesota, Director of AFC Football Communications Jon Zimmer indicated that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady passed former Denver Broncos QB John Elway for sole possession of third place on the NFL's all-time quarterback wins list.

In a game that didn't require much of him, Brady completed 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 149 yards and a touchdown, providing an efficient performance while letting the New England defense do most of the heavy lifting in a blowout of the Vikings.

Brady's 149th win leaves him trailing only Brett Favre (186) and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (169) for the most victories in NFL history.

Of course, Brady is first in what many would consider to be the more important statistic, with his 18 playoff victories besting Joe Montana's 16 atop the all-time leaderboard.

San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates burned the Seattle Seahawks for three touchdowns Sunday. In the process, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 noted that he moved into sole possession of 11th place on the all-time receiving touchdowns list.

Gates opened the day at 87 touchdowns, which was tied for 13th place with Andre Reed and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. The trio was one back of Don Maynard.

As part of a seven-reception, 96-yard performance, Gates caught two eight-yard touchdowns in the second quarter, followed by a 21-yarder in the third.

The first two scores came on third down, with the third coming on a 2nd-and-20. The third was the most aesthetically pleasing, as Gates made a one-handed grab between two Seattle defenders.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had a big afternoon in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons, recording a 76-yard touchdown reception among his three catches and also completing a 50-yard pass on a trick play.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, the former college quarterback out of Rutgers became the first player since David Patten for the New England Patriots in 2001 to record a pass of 50 or more yards and reception of 50 or more yards in the same game.

Sanu's completion wasn't the wide-open throw you'd expect a receiver to make, as he instead tossed a perfect ball down the sideline to beat double coverage, finding fellow wideout Brandon Tate for a 50-yard gain. The beautiful pass set up an unsuccessful 38-yard field-goal attempt for Bengals kicker Mike Nugent in what was then a 3-3 game.

Sanu would later take advantage of a rare eight-man blitz to beat Falcons cornerback Robert Alford for a 76-yard touchdown reception that put the Bengals up 17-3 in the third quarter.

The Washington Redskins had 10 sacks in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, matching a single-game franchise record, per the team's official twitter account.

The leading contributor was linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who matched the franchise's individual record with four sacks, according to the Redskins' official website.

Linebacker Perry Riley and defensive end Jason Hatcher each had 1.5 sacks, with linebacker Brian Orakpo (one), defensive tackle Frank Kearse (one), safety Ryan Clark (0.5) and linebacker Perry Robinson (0.5) also chipping in.

Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne, who completed just 14 of his 28 pass attempts for 193 yards, became the first quarterback to take double-digit sacks in one game since former New York Jet Greg McElroy took 11 in Week 16 of the 2012 season against the San Diego Chargers, per ESPN Stats & Info.

With 307 receptions through the first 61 games of his career, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has reached 300 career catches faster than any other player in franchise history, per ESPN Insider Adam Caplan.

Bryant entered Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans with 297 grabs through 60 games. He then proceeded to haul in 10 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown despite missing a series in the first half because of a shoulder injury, according to ESPNDallas.com.

After watching his Cowboys let a 16-0 lead slide to 16-10, Bryant almost single-handedly extended the lead back to 13 points, catching five passes for 57 yards and a touchdown on one third-quarter drive.

Bryant's 300th career catch occurred earlier in the game when he caught a 12-yard pass in the second quarter to convert a 3rd-and-3 from the Dallas 47-yard line.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers passed Hall of Famer Bart Starr for second place on the franchise's all-time passing-yardage list during Sunday's 31-24 win over the New York Jets, per Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Now the proud owner of 24,732 career passing yards, Rodgers needed all of Sunday's game to surpass Starr, who recorded each of his 24,718 yards in a Green Bay uniform.

Trailing Starr by one yard and facing a 3rd-and-3 to clinch the game with two minutes remaining, Rodgers found wide receiver Jordy Nelson for a 15-yard completion, and then kneeled twice to end the contest.

Rodgers' final completion to Nelson put the wideout over 200 receiving yards for the game, marking the Packers' first performance of that kind since Javon Walker had exactly 200 yards in a 2004 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
