There have now been 28 NFL games played in London, and Zach Wilson and the New York Jets’ defeat to the Atlanta Falcons means that rookie starting quarterbacks are now 0-5 in London games, with Derek Carr in 2014 the only rookie to even throw a touchdown pass in a London game.

The Los Angeles Chargers defeated the Cleveland Browns 47-42 in a game which featured 41 points in the fourth quarter alone. The 89 total points were the most in an NFL game since the Browns lost to the Baltimore Ravens, also by a score of 47-42, in Week 14 last season.

Baker Mayfield lost his third career game in which his team has scored at least 42 points. No other NFL starting quarterback in history has more than one defeat in a game in which his team has scored as many points. The Browns also became the first NFL team in history to lose a game in which they scored at least 40 points and had no turnovers!

Trevor Lawrence is now 0-5 in his NFL career, having lost more games than he did as a starter in High School and College – where he was a combined 86-4. The Jaguars‘ losing streak is now 20-straight games, the third-longest in NFL history.

The Ravens defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-25 in overtime on Monday Night Football, where Lamar Jackson set a new record for the highest completion percentage in a game by any quarterback passing for at least 400 yards. Jackson completed 37 of 43 pass attempts (86.05%) for 442 yards, bettering the previous best set by Deshaun Watson (426 yards, 84.85%) two years ago.

Jackson’s starting record in October is now 8-0, but the Ravens‘ run of 43-straight games with at least 100 rushing yards came to an end, resulting in them ending tied with the 1974-1977 Pittsburgh Steelers for longest such streak in NFL history.
