Week 11 of the NFL season was once again filled drama and excitement, punctuated by some eye-catching and history-making individual performances.

‘LIKE UFC’: America loses it over Aussie NFL monster

DEADLY ACCURATE: Aussie punter influential in Texans upset

With so much going on, it would’ve been easy to skip past some of the top plays from the weekend’s slate of games. Here’s what you might’ve missed:

Justin Herbert makes NFL history

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for at least 350 yards and rush for at least 90 yards in the Chargers’ 41-37 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Herbert had 382 passing yards, 90 rushing yards and the touchdown passes.

Jonathan Taylor sets new Colts record

Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor set a new franchise record with his five touchdown effort in the Colts’ 41-15 win over the Buffalo Bill.

Taylor also became just the second player to have eight straight games with at least 100 scrimmage yards and one rushing touchdown in a single season.

The 22-year-old continues to build his MVP case.

Austin Eckler nearly matches Taylor

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Eckler almost matched Taylor’s effort, with a four touchdown effort of his own.

Eckler had two receiving and two rushing touchdowns, making him the first player since 2011 to have multiple receiving and rushing touchdowns in the same game.

Travis Kelce benefits from Chiefs creativity

It’s not often you see a direct snap to a tight end, but that’s exactly what led to Travis Kelce’s rushing touchdown in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 19-9 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Kelce also passed Rob Gronkowski and Greg Olsen to move into fifth place for all-time receiving yards for a tight end during the game.

Chris Jones terrorises Cowboys

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is probably having nightmares about the Chiefs’ Chris Jones, after he was sacked 3.5 times by the defensive end on Sunday.

The Chiefs, as a team, hadn’t recorded three sacks in any game this season until Jones dialled up his impressive solo effort.

Another game-winner for Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota Viking kicker Greg Joseph made his third game-winning field goal of the season, hitting a 29-yard kick to seal a 34-31 win over the Green Bay Packers.

Joseph has also missed two game-winning kicks this season as the Vikings have repeatedly taken games down to the wire.

Kevin Hart shows his colours

Hollywood star Kevin Hart has made no secret of his love for Philadelphia’s sports teams.

His passion was on full display when he paused mid-interview in order to boo the New Orleans Saints as they made their way onto the field to take on the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.
