Week 15 of the NFL season featured milestones reached by a half-dozen long-time stars while, elsewhere, there was plenty of movement in the Top-50 all-time statistical charts. New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning passed Johnny Unitas and tied Warren Moon for 8th with 291 TD passes, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler became the 39th quarterback to reach 200 TD passes (201) and Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Andre Johnson is the 10th player to surpass 14,000 receiving yards, passing James Lofton for 9th place (14,015). Meanwhile, longtime San Francisco 49ers and current Colts running back Frank Gore hit a pair of milestones, as the 22nd player to reach 15,000 yards from scrimmage (15,019) and 34th to pass 15,000 all-purpose yards (15,034), Green Bay Packers defensive end Julius Peppers passed Leslie O’Neal, Lawrence Taylor, DeMarcus Ware and John Abraham for 10th on the all-time sacks list with 135.0 and Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski is the 43rd player to appear in, at least, 250 NFL games.
