Watson (2018 and 2019) joined Hall of Famer Steve Young (1994 and 1998) as the only players in NFL history with multiple seasons of at least 25 pass TDs and at least five rush TDs. Watson also became the first quarterback in Texans history to have at least 25 pass TDs in consecutive seasons.

With one rush TD and 66 rush yards against the Eagles, Peterson tied Hall of Famer Walter Payton for fourth all-time in career rush TDs with 110 and passed Hall of Famer Curtis Martin (14,101) for the fifth-most rush yards all-time with 14,102.
» A.J. Brown had 114 receiving yards against the Texans, marking his third game with at least 100 receiving yards in his last four games.

» Miles Sanders had a record-breaking day in the Eagles' win over the Redskins. His 172 scrimmage yards propelled him past DeSean Jackson's previous rookie record of 1,008 scrimmage yards in 2008 (1,120), and his 122 rush yards moved him past LeSean McCoy's rookie record of 637 rush yards in 2009 (687).
