The #Twitter12Pack is back this week, with some unexpected notes, tweets, and video clips from the NFL, as well as a steady dose of college football surprises.
As the season goes on, the nuggets seem to get more and more interesting.
1) How does this happen from and Andy Reid coached team in 2014?
They keep winning, and have been impressive, but Chiefs are still only team in NFL without a receiving touchdown by a wide receiver.

2) I would have never guessed this stat, but Notre Dame better be on the lookout against a good Arizona State squad.
Look out Notre Dame: teams are 2-6 this season the game after playing Navy. — CollegeFootballTalk (@CFTalk) November 3, 2014
3) Dak Prescott > Tim Tebow / Johnny Maziel / Cam Newton through 7 games?
Through 7 games, Dak Prescott has been responsible for 26 TDs. That’s 4 fewer than Tim Tebow’s historic season in ’07 pic.twitter.com/wvj7B2k3Q5

4) At first this seems somewhat impressive, but then you try to name Cleveland quarterbacks that have actually played in 8 straight games…
5) Quick, name the five FBS programs who have gone 14-3 or better over the past 17 games. I bet you had trouble naming one of them.
Only four FBS teams have a better record in last 17 games (14-3) than Colorado State: FSU, Mich St., Auburn and Marshall. — Joe Schad (@schadjoe) November 3, 2014
6) Houston’s streak of forcing a turnover in 31 consecutive games came to an end over the weekend, but here’s a nice little nugget on how they develop that mindset in practice.
7) This sign has two zingers in one sentence.
8) Good try? Good effort? Nope…
9) Hey Arkansas…here’s a good reason to not throw 30+ times a game.
Some Sunday stats: Arkansas is 4-1 when it attempts fewer than 30 passes in a game this season. The Hogs are 0-4 when throwing 30 or more. — Robbie Neiswanger (@NWARobbie) November 2, 2014
10) The same team infamous for the Mark Sanchez “buttfumble” is now also known for a butt-touchdown.
11) Big time players make big plays in big games
In 13 games against FBS opponents with a winning record, Nick Marshall has averaged 284.3 yards per game, scoring a combined 34 touchdowns. — StatTiger (@StatTiger) November 2, 2014
12) I certainly didn’t see the best hit of the weekend coming from a backup quarterback.
Bonus: You don’t want Oklahoma or TCU running for 200+ against your team.
Oklahoma is 65-1 under Bob Stoops when rushing for 200+. TCU is 70-4 under Gary Patterson when doing the same.
