    Nice. To make it more complete (though a bit more work to keep up to date, I realize the season records need to be updated weekly), I suggest you annotate the entry where a record is first broken with the final tally (or latest total for records still in force). e.g.

    NFL Record: Brady's 9th consecutive game with 3+ touchdown passes (Manning 8, 2004) (record stands at 10 consecutive games and still in progress as of week 11)

    Franchise Record: Brady 33 touchdowns to date, most single-season touchdown passes (Parilli 31, 1964) (record now stands at 38 after week 11)

    ...or something of the sort. (I think making a single entry per record and then updating it is the clearest and least cluttered).

    Sounds good. Would you want it updated in each new game box or just kept in the box from when it was broken?

    My inclination would be to have each record once, listed in the game in which it was first set and updated to the latest status. Less clutter, there are at least 6 such ongoing records right now and so many entries per game would look silly. But make the "still in progress" notation stand out, a different color, so that people can easily spot such records in the middle of the page.

    It would stand to reason that G-ski is on track for most point after attempts in a season. That would be one to watch.

    Funny you should mention that. :D

    The record for most PATs attempted is 70, by the immortal Uwe von Schamann of Miami. He also holds the record for most PATs made, with 66. At the current rate of scoring, Gostkowski will pass both of those numbers by the end of the Pittsburgh game.

    I am curious, what is the most players on a team to score TD? I just heard 20 different Pats have scored a TD this year. If that is not a record that has to be close.

    Who hasn't scored on offense? Eckel? I think he has 1 TD. It will have to be someone on D, unless Troy Brown comes back or Chad Jackson scores.

    I think it's time to hand the ball to Junior Seau for the next TD to tie the record he deserves it

    You missed tie the NFL record for quickest to team to clinch division and winning the record for quickest to clinch the AFC East, also a franchise record for clinching a playoff spot.

    PATRIOTS IN THE PLAYOFFS
    The Patriots clinched the 2007 AFC East title by virtue of Buffalo’s loss at Jacksonville this afternoon. The Patriots have now won five straight division titles and have won the division six times in seven seasons since 2001. The Patriots have set a record for the most consecutive division championships in AFC East Division history. New England has won eight division titles in the 14 seasons since Robert Kraft bought the team in 1994.

    PATRIOTS TIE EARLIEST DIVISION CLINCH SINCE 1978
    The Patriots have clinched the AFC East during the weekend of their 11th game of the season, tying the earliest division clinch since the NFL established the 16-game schedule in 1978. Three other teams have clinched their division during the weekend of their 11th game since 1978 - the 1985 Chicago Bears, the 1997 San Francisco 49ers and the 2004 Philadelphia Eagles.

    Welker's 13 receptions tied a non-overtime franchise record, but I should note that Troy Brown had 16 catches in an overtime win against the KC Chiefs in 2002 but left the game due to injury in the early fourth quarter. (note: none of his catches came in OT)
