A look at seven statistical highlights from the afternoon games on Sunday, October 23, the seventh week of the 2011 season, via the NFL.
- The New York Jets overcame a 21-10 deficit to defeat the San Diego Chargers 27-21 and the Denver Broncos erased a 15-0 fourth quarter deficit to defeat the Miami Dolphins 18-15 in overtime. It marked the 21st time this season that a team trailed by at least 10 points and came back to win the game. That is the second-most through the first seven weeks of any season in NFL history (23 in 1987). The Broncos also became the first team to come-from-behind and win a game after trailing by 15+ points with three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter since 1970.
- The Green Bay Packers defeated the Minnesota Vikings 33-27 and improved to 7-0. The Packers are the fourth defending Super Bowl champion to start the following season 7-0 (1990 San Francisco 49ers; 1998 Denver Broncos; 2007 Indianapolis Colts).
