Week 14 of the NFL season provided a handful of career milestones while quite a few players moved up the all-time statistical charts. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees passed Hall of Famer Dan Marino for 4th in touchdown passes (421), San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers passed Joe Montana to move into 15th place on the passing yardage list (40,631) and Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson moved into 17th place on the all-time rushing list (11,441), passing Steven Jackson, and became the 23rd player in league history to score, at least, 100 touchdowns.

Other milestones of note: Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri passed Jason Hanson for 3rd with 498 career field goals, Cleveland Browns punter Andy Lee became the 21st player in NFL history to pass the 1,000 punt mark and Houston Texans punter Shane Lechler joined Jeff Feagles and Sean Landeta as the only punters to amass, at least, 60,000 punting yards in NFL history.
