Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry made 77 three-point shots during the month of November, breaking his own record of 75 three-pointers in a single calendar month (March 2015), per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).

The runaway MVP favorite has been better than ever in the wake of his first championship, averaging 31.6 points, 6.0 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 steals as his Warriors have jumped out to a record-setting 19-0 start.

Curry has made 44.5 percent of his three-point attempts on the season and connected on 43.8 percent in November, combining efficiency and volume in a way no other player can.

He was even more efficient when he first set the single-month record back in March, connecting on a remarkable 51.7 percent of his three-point tries.

In addition to leading his team to its first victory since Week 4, San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers became the 17th player in NFL history to reach 40,000 career passing yards, accomplishing the feat during Sunday's 31-25 road win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Despite leading an offense that has been ravaged by injuries, Rivers completed 29 of his 43 pass attempts for 300 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's game.

It was his first four-touchdown game of the season and came just seven days after he was held without a score in an ugly 33-3 home loss to the division rival Kansas City Chiefs.

A soft Jacksonville defense played a role in Rivers' big day, as did the re-emergence of future Hall of Fame tight end Antonio Gates, who caught four passes for 53 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson ran for 158 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries during Sunday's 20-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons, moving past O.J. Simpson, Corey Dillon and John Riggins to capture the 18th spot on the NFL's all-time rushing list.

Peterson entered the game with 11,196 career rushing yards, needing 41 to pass Simpson (11,236), 46 to pass Dillon (11,241) and 157 to pass Riggins (11,352).

Peterson made easy work of the other two, but he didn't surpass Riggins until ripping off a 35-yard, game-clinching touchdown on his final carry of the game.

Said carry, which gave the Vikings a 20-3 lead with just four minutes, 15 seconds remaining in the contest, boosted Peterson up to 11,354 career rushing yards.

Despite dropping to 6-5, the Pittsburgh Steelers tied an all-time NFL record with their sixth successful two-point conversion of the year during Sunday's 39-30 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Motivated by the offseason change in PAT rules, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has often gone for two points even in early-game situations, at least when starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been healthy.

Other teams haven't been nearly as aggressive, as Pittsburgh's nine two-point attempts are easily the most in the league, with the Seahawks and Chicago Bears tied for second at five apiece.

Despite the aggressive approach on two-point conversions, Tomlin oddly decided to get conservative at the worst time in Sunday's game, calling for Chris Boswell to kick a field goal while his team was at the Seattle 3-yard line and trailing by five points with just three minutes left in the game.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for five touchdowns in Sunday's 39-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, becoming just the fourth player in franchise history to throw five touchdown passes in a single game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

No Seahawk has ever thrown six touchdown passes, but Dave Krieg had exactly five on three separate occasions, with Matt Hasselbeck accomplishing the feat twice, per Pro-football-reference.com's play index.

Wilson and Warren Moon only have one such game apiece, though Moon did throw five touchdowns a few other times for different teams.

Wilson couldn't have had his big day without the help of wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who became the first Seahawk since Joey Galloway in 1997 to catch three touchdown passes in a game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may have been less than thrilled after Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Denver Broncos, but he did manage to throw his 420th career touchdown pass during the game.

According to Pro-Football-Reference.com, his performance moved him into a tie with Dan Marino for third place on the all-time list for touchdown throws.

Brady entered the game with 417 career touchdown passes, having recorded three or more in four of his first 10 games this season.

He quickly hooked up with star tight end Rob Gronkowski for a 23-yard score on New England's first drive, giving him 418 less than four minutes into the game.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 456 yards in Sunday's 39-30 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, setting an all-time single-game record for most passing yards against Seattle, per the Seahawks' official Twitter account.

In a back-and-forth contest that was a one-score game until the final two minutes, Roethlisberger completed 36 of his 55 pass attempts for the record-setting 456 yardsalbeit with just one touchdown and a pair of interceptions.

With top wide receiver Antonio Brown shadowed by star Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman for the entire afternoon, No. 3 wideout Markus Wheaton shockingly stepped up to catch nine passes for 201 yards and Roethlisberger's only touchdown.

Roethlisberger actually had a shot to reach 500 yards for the third time in his career, but with the Steelers trailing by nine points just inside of the two-minute warning, he was removed from the game to be evaluated for concussion symptoms.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston finished Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts with 2,650 passing yards this season, putting him 42 ahead of current backup Mike Glennon (2,608 in 2013) for the franchise's rookie record for passing yards, per Jenna Laine of Sports Talk 1040.

Winston broke the record despite playing one of his worst games in recent weeks, completing just 20 of his 36 pass attempts for 245 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

The statistics weren't all that terrible, but his team's inability to score any points in the second half allowed the Colts to storm back from a 12-6 halftime deficit for an easy 25-12 win. 

Winston, the first overall selection in the 2015 NFL draft, has still been more promising than Glennon was in his own rookie year, completing 58 percent of his passes for 7.6 yards per attempt with 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions through 11 games.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught his 63rd career touchdown pass during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, passing Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe for third on the all-time touchdown receptions list for tight ends, per NFL on ESPN.

Unfortunately, the game didn't end as planned for Gronk, as he was forced to leave late in the fourth quarter with a knee injury.

Following Gronkowski's departure, the Patriots struggled a bit offensively, including a three-and-out in overtime that put the Broncos in good position for the drive that ended New England's hopes of an undefeated season.

Per ESPN, the star tight end is considered just week-to-week with a minor knee strain, which is good news for a Patriots team that still has Super Bowl aspirations. Lost in the shuffle amidst all of the injury news was Gronkowski's outstanding achievement in Sunday's game.

The 2015-16 Los Angeles Lakers made a small bit of unwanted franchise history in Tuesday's ugly 111-77 loss to the Golden State Warriors, finishing a regular-season contest without any players scoring more than 10 points for the first time in their NBA tenure, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).

Said tenure goes back to 1948, encompassing 68 seasons and 5,301 games.

To be fair, the Lakers did have three players who scored exactly 10 points in Tuesday's game, with guard Lou Williams and forwards Julius Randle and Larry Nance Jr. doing the honors.

Still, it was a truly pitiful performance, with the Lakers getting just 28 points out of their starting five, whereas Warriors guard Stephen Curry single-handedly poured in 24.
