Notes

  1. ^ Coach Bruce Coslet took running back Corey Dillon out of that game in the third quarter even though he was on pace to break the league's single-game rushing record of 275 yards, set by the late Walter Payton almost 22 years before. Asked why afterwards, Coslet reminded reporters that Payton had set that record in a 10-7 game.[1]
