The night of Sunday to Monday within the 12th week of the NFL Championship was one for the books, with great games and even greater individual achievements. Jalen Hurts led the Philadelphia Eagles to a thrilling victory over the Buffalo Bills, running for two touchdowns and breaking a franchise record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a season.

Hurts now has 11 rushing touchdowns this year, marking the third consecutive season in which he has reached double-digit touchdowns. He is the first quarterback to accomplish this feat. Another running quarterback, Lamar Jackson, joined a small but exclusive club when he surpassed 5,000 career rushing yards.

Jackson reached the milestone in just 84 games, making him the fastest quarterback to do so. He joins Michael Vick, Cam Newton, and Russell Wilson as the only quarterbacks with 5,000-plus rushing yards.

Travis Kelce continues to push boundaries

Reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes' favorite target, Travis Kelce, reached another career milestone, surpassing 11,000 career receiving yards.

Kelce reached the mark in his 154th game, making him the fastest tight end to achieve this feat. The previous record was held by Tony Gonzalez, who reached 11,000 yards in his 191st game. Houston Texans quarterback CJ Stroud made some history of his own, becoming the first quarterback to throw for over 400 yards in four consecutive games.

Stroud's impressive streak has helped the Texans stay competitive in a tough AFC South division. Finally, Josh Allen's overtime struggles continued as he suffered another overtime loss, making him 0-6 in overtime for his career.

While it's only Allen's third straight overtime loss, the streak is becoming a source of concern for the Buffalo Bills. Overall, the 12th week of the NFL Championship was a memorable one, with plenty of great games and individual achievements.

The NFL season is still young, and there are sure to be many more memorable moments to come. This night was marked by individual records.
