Week 11: W, 27-17 vs. Baltimore

• The Cowboys gained 417 total yards in their 27-17 win over Baltimore. That marked the team's eighth consecutive game with at least 400 yards, tied for the longest single-season streak in NFL history (2007 Patriots and 2013 Broncos). The Cowboys have won nine consecutive games, the longest single-season winning streak in franchise history.

• Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott passed for 301 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Ravens. Prescott is the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to pass for at least 300 yards and multiple touchdowns with no interceptions in consecutive games. He joined Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino (1983) and Russell Wilson (2012) as the only rookie quarterbacks since 1970 to have multiple touchdown passes in five consecutive games.

• Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 97 yards and leads the NFL with 1,102 rushing yards. Elliott's 1,102 rushing yards are the third-most in NFL history in a player's first 10 games, trailing only Pro Football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson (1,223) and Adrian Peterson (1,197).


Week 11: W, 22-16 vs. Bears 
Next: at Browns

• The Giants improved to 7-3 after defeating the Bears. With the victory, the Giants concluded a 3-0 homestand. This is the first time the Giants won three games at home in consecutive weeks since Oct 21-Nov 4, 1962, when they beat Detroit, Washington and the St. Louis Cardinals.

• The Giants rushed for 102 yards one week after running for 122 yards in a victory vs. Cincinnati. This is the first time they have had back-to-back 100-yard rushing games since Nov. 30-Dec. 7, 2014 at Jacksonville and Tennessee.

• Rashad Jennings had a season-high 21 rushing attempts for 85 yards. He also tied Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard for the team lead with a season-high five receptions.

• Eli Manning completed 21 of 36 passes for 227 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 95.5. The touchdown passes were nine yards to Will Tye and 15 yards to Shepard, both in the third quarter.

• Safety Landon Collins made the big play at the end of the game, intercepting a Jay Cutler pass at the Giants' 21-yard line with 1:11 remaining to end the Bears' last threat. Collins has intercepted at least one pass in four consecutive games.

• The Redskins finished with two 100-yard receivers (Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder) and a 100-yard rusher (Robert Kelley) in a single game for the first time since Sept. 12, 1999.

• Quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21 of 30 passes for 375 yards and tied his season-high with three touchdown passes and no interceptions.
