The NFL’s penultimate week of 2015 yielded a handful of milestones for some of the current long-time greats in the league. San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin passed Hines Ward for 12th on the receptions list and is the 13th player to catch, at least, 1,000 passes, Indianapolis Colts running back Frank Gore became the 30th player with, at least, 70 rushing TDs and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning passed Warren Moon for 8th-best in touchdown passes with 292.

Elsewhere, New England Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski joined 24 others in league history to surpass 500 extra points and Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri joined Morten Andersen and Gary Anderson as the only players to reach the 500 field goal plateau.

Also, Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall’s 17-yard fumble return for a TD in the Skins’ 38-24 win at Philadelphia is the 5th of his illustrious career, passing Keith Bulluck, Link Lyman, Bill Thompson, Derrick Thomas and Osi Umenyiora and tying Jessie Tuggle for 2nd-best all-time. It was, also, his 10th non-offensive touchdown, passing Jacoby Jones, Darren Sproles, Charles Tillman and 9 others and tying Ollie Matson and Emlen Tunnell for 18th in league history and extended his NFL record for fumble return yards (328). In addition, Hall, a 12-year veteran from Virginia Tech, became the only player in NFL history to return five fumbles as well as five interceptions for touchdowns.
