A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:


Ryan Fitzpatrick rallied the Rams to a 33-27 win over the Texans, passing for 310 yards and three touchdowns, including a 56-yard TD pass to Kevin Curtis in overtime. Only four other players passed for 300 yards in their NFL debut: Otto Graham, 346 yards (1950); Ed Rubbert, 334 (a replacement player for the Redskins during the 1987 strike); Mark Rypien, 303 (1988), and Peyton Manning, 302 (1998).
