Sky Sports statistician – and big Buffalo Bills fan – Benedict Bermange picks out the best stats the NFL has to offer from Week 10, including another record day for Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson and a fourth win in four for Tom Brady in Europe…

Tom Brady became the first quarterback to start a game in three different countries outside of the US – and he took his record in those games to 4-0 as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers secured their first win in an International Series game, having lost their previous three attempts. Brady’s fourth quarter interception also broke his streak of 399 straight pass attempts without throwing an interception, just three short of the NFL record.

The Minnesota Vikings won an incredible game against the Buffalo Bills, their fifth win this season after trailing in the fourth quarter, to improve their record to 7-0 in one-score games this year. The Bills’ defeat this week sent them from the top seed in the AFC to the sixth seed.

Eric Kendricks‘ fumble recovery for a touchdown to give the Vikings the lead with 41 seconds left in the fourth quarter was the first go-ahead, non-offensive touchdown scored by a trailing team in the last minute of the fourth quarter since December 1986. On that occasion, the Colts, trailing by two, beat the Falcons 28-23 on a blocked punt by Tate Randle, with the touchdown scored by Eugene Daniel with 20 seconds left. The last time the Bills blew a second-half lead of at least 17 points was in December 2005 when they saw a 23-3 lead against the Dolphins morph into a 24-23 defeat.
