Historic performances from Miami Dolphins, C.J. Stroud recognized with artifacts in Canton
The Miami Dolphins became the fourth team in NFL history, including postseason, to score at least 70 points in a game on Sept. 24. They join the Chicago Bears (73 points in the 1940 NFL Championship on Dec 8, 1940), Washington Redskins (72 points on Nov. 27, 1966) and the Los Angeles Rams (70 points on Oct. 22, 1950), as the only teams reach the point total. All four teams scored 10 touchdowns.
Recording 726 total yards of offense, the Dolphins became the second team in NFL history, including the postseason, to record at least 700 yards of total offense in a game, joining the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 28, 1951. The Rams totaled 735 yards of offense in the 1951 season opener, led by Hall of Famers ELROY HIRSCH and NORM VAN BROCKLIN, defeating the New York Yanks 54-14.
The signed game-used ball from the Dolphins’ historic game has gone on display in Canton.
Stroud continues to break records in his short time in the NFL.
On Nov. 5, he completed 30 of 42 attempts for 470 yards and five touchdowns in Houston’s 39-37 comeback win over Tampa Bay. His 470 passing yards are the most by a rookie in NFL history, surpassing Marc Bulger’s 453 yards from the 2002 season. His 147.8 passer rating eclipsed Marcus Mariota’s previous rookie record of 137.5 from Nov. 8, 2015.
Stroud joins Matthew Stafford – 422 passing yards and five touchdown passes on Nov. 22, 2009 – as the second rookie in NFL history with at least 400 passing yards and five touchdown passes in a game.
At 22 years and 33 days old, Stroud is the youngest player in history to throw for 450 yards, breaking Jacky Lee’s record from the 1961 season (22 years and 94 days old Oct. 13, 1961; 457 yards vs. Boston Patriots).
Earlier this season, Stroud became the first quarterback with no interceptions in his first five career starts and passed Dak Prescott (176 attempts in 2016) for the most consecutive pass attempts without an interception to begin a career, with 186. A game-used ball from Stroud’s Week 5 record has been featured at the Hall of Fame since Oct. 23.
Stroud’s game-worn jersey from his historic Week 9 performance is on display alongside the game-used ball in the “Pro Football Today Gallery.”
