NFL 2014: What To Look For Week 12
Here's what to look for during Week 12 of the NFL 2014 Regular Season
Another Peyton Manning Milestone
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning passed for 389 yards and a touchdown this past weekend, increasing his streak of games with at least one touchdown pass to 49. With a touchdown pass against the Miami Dolphins, Peyton Manning can become the third quarterback in NFL history to throw at least one touchdown pass in 50 consecutive games.
The NFL quarterbacks with the most consecutive games with at least one touchdown pass:

|Drew Brees||2009-2012||New Orleans||54|
|Tom Brady||2010-2013||New England||52|
Historic Tight Ends
Tight ends Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots and Antonio Gates of the San Diego Chargers are both on the verge of a significant milestone.
Gronkowski and Gates, both of whom have 9 touchdown catches this season, each need one touchdown reception on Sunday to become the first tight ends in NFL history with 10 or more touchdown receptions in four different seasons.
The tight ends with the most seasons with at least 10 touchdown receptions in NFL history:
|Tight End||Seasons 10+ TDs||TDs (Season)|
|Source: NFL *Nine TDs in 2014|
|Rob Gronkowski||3||10 (2010), 17 (2011), 11(2012)*|
|Antonio Gates||3||13 (2004), 10 (2005), 10 (2010)*|
|Tony Gonzalez||3||11 (1999), 10 (2003), 10 (2008)|
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has 46 receptions for 658 yards and two touchdowns this season, bringing his career reception total to 892.
With eight receptions in Week 12 at Seattle, Fitzgerald, who will be 31 years, 84 days old on Sunday, would become the youngest player to reach 900 career receptions in NFL history.
The youngest players ever to reach 900 career receptions:
|Source: NFL *Active **Age on Sunday|
|Andre Johnson*||32 years, 143 days||982|
|Jason Witten*||32 years, 159 days||918|
|Randy Moss||32 years, 275 days||982|
|Tony Gonzalez||32 years, 291 days||1,325|
|Jerry Rice||33 years, 44 days||1,549|
|Larry Fitzgerald*||31 years, 84 days**||892|
Rising Rookie Receiver
Tampa Bay rookie wide receiver Mike Evans caught seven passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 27-7 victory at Washington in Week 11. The performance marked Evans' third consecutive game with 120 or more receiving yards, joining Billy Howton (1952), Jimmy Orr (1958) and Marques Colston (2006) as the only rookies to do it.
With 120 or more receiving yards at Chicago on Sunday, Evans would become the first rookie in NFL history to accomplish the feat in four consecutive games.
Evans' past three games:
|Nov 2, 2014||Cleveland||7||124||2|
|Nov 9, 2014||Atlanta||7||125||1|
|Nov 16, 2014||Washington||7||209||2|
Fantastic Fred Jackson
Buffalo running back Fred Jackson has rushed for 5,370 yards in his 8-year career.
Jackson, who went undrafted out of Coe College in 2007, needs nine rushing yards on Sunday against the New York Jets to surpass WILLIE PARKER (5,378) for the third-most rushing yards all-time by an undrafted player.
The undrafted players with the most career rushing yards:

|Priest Holmes||1997-2007||Baltimore, KC||8,172|
Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri has made 470 field goals in his 19-year career. With two field goals on Sunday against Jacksonville, Vinatieri would move past MATT STOVER for the fifth-most in NFL history.
The NFL kickers with the most field goals in NFL history:
Houston punter Shane Lechler has placed 371 career punts inside the 20-yard line. With three such punts on Sunday against Cincinnati, Lechler would surpass MATT TURK (373) for the fifth-most punts inside the 20 since the statistic became official in 1976.
The NFL punters with the most punts inside the 20 yard line since 1976:
